Nokia makes the world's first “immersive” voice and audio call

Nokia stated that with this new technology there is an improvement in call quality

The telecommunications company Nokia reported on a major technological breakthrough that allowed it to make the world's first immersive live voice and audio call, giving way to more realistic interactions.

Nokia said the call was made using a new technology - 3GPP Immersive Voice and Audio Services (IVAS) - which represents the biggest advance in live voice calls.

“The IVAS codec allows consumers to hear 3D spatial sound in real time instead of the current experience of monophonic smartphone voice calls,” he detailed in a press release.

The call was made by the president and CEO of Nokia, Pekka Lundmark, to the ambassador of digitization and new technologies of Finland, Stefan Lindström, checking various acoustic dimensions that can be experienced with this IVAS technology.

“We have demonstrated the future of voice calls. “This innovative audio technology brings it into the caller's environment, creating a spatial and greatly enhanced listening experience for voice and video calls, offering important benefits for business and industrial applications,” noted Lundmark.

Nokia representatives stated that with IVAS there is an improvement in call quality and that three-dimensional sound will make interactions more realistic and attractive for users.

The technology has not yet been implemented in mobile networks, which may take several years, but Nokia announced that IVAS is part of the upcoming 5G Advanced standard.

“Nokia was able to successfully demonstrate the IVAS technology in a real-time call, although the technology has not yet been deployed on mobile networks. This first live call used Nokia's patented Immersive Voice technology to achieve the experience over a public 5G network,” the company said.
