Vodafone and e& have forged a strategic alliance to address the surging demand for Voice over 4G/5G (VoLTE) services and international voice traffic needs. This collaboration between two telecommunications giants aims to deliver comprehensive, fully managed voice solutions to telecom operators worldwide.

The Global System for Mobile Communications Association (GSMA) projects VoLTE adoption to exceed 70% of global mobile connections by 2030. This growth is fueled by the transition from legacy networks to 5G, necessitating consistently reliable managed voice services across borders.

Combining their technical expertise, established partnerships, and global reach, Vodafone and e& are set to provide scalable and standardized managed voice services. Operators opting for joint services can anticipate predictable costs, optimized revenues, regulatory compliance, fraud protection, and seamless service integration through advanced cloud-based architecture.

Ninian Wilson, CEO of Vodafone Procurement and Connectivity, commented, “Managing cross-border voice services has become increasingly intricate due to evolving regulations, the need to combat international scams, and the migration to 5G. Operators are seeking reliable partners to navigate these changes while expanding their businesses. Vodafone’s strategic collaboration with e& provides operators with a single point of contact and global reliability during this transitional phase to assist them in addressing evolving business complexities.”

Nabil Baccouche, Group Chief Carrier & Wholesale Officer at e&, added, “This collaboration between Vodafone and e& sets a new industry standard that goes beyond cost predictability and improved security. It empowers operators to confidently adapt to the ever-changing voice landscape. Leveraging our established capabilities, cutting-edge platforms, and extensive industry knowledge, we offer operators a definitive path to achieving operational excellence. Through this partnership, e& and Vodafone grant operators easy access to our combined expertise and global presence, enabling them to deliver cutting-edge voice services and seamlessly transform their businesses for the future.”

Additionally, the partnership offers operators enhanced fraud protection using advanced Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning capabilities. Both companies actively contribute to shaping fraud mitigation strategies through participation in the Global Leaders Forum (GLF).

This announcement builds on the agreement unveiled last October, outlining joint efforts in marketing, selling, and servicing to support digital transformations. With this partnership, Vodafone and e& aim to meet the evolving needs of the telecom industry and drive innovation in managed voice services globally.
