7, we can observe that the call setup time in path migration scenario is very stable until the network status jump to FULL at about 1020th seconds.
As per Sehnaoui, currently, when a 4G subscriber makes a voice call, there is an automatic transition from 4G to 3G+ network, which will no longer be necessary upon the launch of VoLTE, whereby subscribers can directly conduct voice calls over the 4G network as is the case with internet data services VoLTE provides high-quality sound and significant improvement in quality of voice calls, with greater speed in the call setup time .
