Sri Lanka's Dialog Axiata has launched what it says is the nation's first voice over Wi-Fi calling service.
The operator's VoWiFi service does not require a third party app to be installed and allows calls to be received over Wi-Fi as if they were standard incoming calls.
Dialog Axiata is offering five Huawei smartphones that support the VoWiFi service, and plans to extend it to other VoWiFi supported handsets from Samsung, Apple and other vendors in the near future.
“Dialog is committed to delivering the latest in technology and connectivity to all Sri Lankans, and VoWiFi is another key step in offering next generation solutions to our customers,” Dialog Axiata CTO Pradeep De Almeida said.
“We started this journey by enhancing the infrastructure in our network and migrating to a new state-of-the-art core network. For our customers, this means a better experience through greater agility and flexibility."
