2 Degrees in New Zealand brings in new mobile phone Wi-Fi services

New Zealand’s third-largest mobile operator, 2degrees, has introduced new services allowing customers to call and message from their mobile phones using a Wi-Fi connection, even outside a mobile coverage area.

The introduction of Wi-Fi Calling or Voice over Wi-Fi makes it easier for users to stay connected.

2degrees customers with the right phones will be able to make and receive calls if connected over wifi if they find themselves in a mobile blackspot but with access to the internet. It is one of the best mobile operators in NZ.

According to 2degrees, its mobile network covers 98.5% of places people live and work in New Zealand, but the country’s terrain does create challenging coverage areas, where signals can be weak in places like valleys or gullies, as well as at the edge of a base station’s range.

Also, maintaining strong cellular coverage inside homes and office buildings can often be problematic due to building materials that impact signal propagation.

According to 2degrees, at the heart of its Wi-Fi Calling service is Metaswitch’s cloud-native communications software — including Rhino TAS, Clearwater virtual IMS Core, Perimeta virtual Session Border Controller and Service Assurance Server — and the Virtualised ePDG from Metaswitch partner, Affirmed Networks.

Their combined cloud-native solutions provide the foundation for 2degree’s next-generation services, like Wi-Fi Calling, and deliver the benefits of virtual network functions (VNFs) that are designed for cloud environments.

2 Degrees is the latest mobile operator to recognize the value of cloud-native communication software in helping to achieve service innovations that enhance their customers’ experience and increase their efficiency.
