DoT seeks clarifications from TRAI on voice services over Wi-Fi

May 09, 2018

The Department of Telecommunications (DoT) has sought clarifications from the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) on routing of international voice calls over Wi-Fi, the relevant numbering scheme and a local interception mechanism before notifying the internet telephony policy.

Operators are preparing to launch these calling services, which can be used even without a cellular signal by using public Wi-Fi, once the policy is notified. Such voice over Wi-Fi calling services will immediately work on 4G voice over long term evolution (VoLTE) devices.

According to industry sources, the government has in principle approved internet telephony but a separate set up has to be created for international origin voice calls, and on numbering scheme too, besides local interception, for which, clarifications have been sought from the TRAI.
