MediaTek and Ericsson lately announced successful testing to enable Wi-Fi calling across advanced MediaTek powered mobile devices and Ericsson's mobile network. The collaboration will bring the advantages of Wi-Fi calling to a significantly larger base of devices and end-users.

"Our collaboration with Ericsson, a technology leader in mobile networks, assures our broad customer base that MediaTek's Wi-Fi interworking is state-of-the-art," said Jeffrey Ju, Executive Vice President and Co-Chief Operations Officer at MediaTek. "The comprehensive testing is a validation of our SoC reference base and reinforces our goal to bring the best technology and experiences to users around the world."

The comprehensive suite of testing between a MediaTek based mobile device and the Ericsson Evolved Packet Core and Ericsson IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) included registration, idle and active call mobility - for example between Wi-Fi and LTE - SMS, voice and video calling and emergency services Wi-Fi calling.

These features, already available on Ericsson's mobile network solution, are now also offered on MediaTek helio X and P series SoC's -- starting from helio P10 -- and on all new 4G LTE smartphone SoC platforms from MediaTek.

"Ericsson is pleased to see MediaTek's reference platforms for smartphones pass all test cases for Wi-Fi calling interworking. This will contribute to boosting the device ecosystem for Wi-Fi calling, enabling more of our customers to launch this attractive service," said Anders Olin, Head of Product Area Network Functions from Ericsson.
