Many operators are expected to launch Voice over LTE services by the end of 2012 after they have tested their networks when affordable handsets are available.

Dell’Oro Group said in a new research that there are signs that operators will be launching revenue-generating services such as video conferencing, location services, messaging and file sharing in the coming year.

These new communication services will represent the first major wireless operator responses to the threats posed by smartphone-enabled “over-the-top” services.
