There is a strong business case for Mobile HD Voice. Customers make more, or
longer, calls with HD Voice, and highly value the service. HD Voice helps o
perators to clearly differentiate their offerings and enable high quality
services to voice dependent business like call center services, information
services, emergency services, etc. HD Voice is also ideal for conference calls
and can contribute to a reduction in business travel and raise productivity
while reducing the environmental impact. Calls which are easier to hear and understand
reduce the fatigue typically associated with long conference calls.
The maximum benefits from using HD Voice on a mobile HD-capable network are
realized or perceived when both calling and called parties use HD Voice-capable
phones. Improvements in call quality are also often observed even when calling
a non-HD Voice phone, due to improvements in the acoustic performance and
advanced noise reduction capabilities which are present in most HD Voice
