2022 has been the year that Mobile Network Operators have been in a race to put in place roaming agreements with other MNOs. One main drive behind this is the imminent network shutdowns with around 51 operators across the world already completed their shutdown of either 2G or 3G and in some cases both.
This change is pushing Mobile Network operators to ensure there is substantial capacity and coverage for new technologies like VoLTE and VoWiFi.
The end users on the other hand are encouraged to upgrade their devices to 4G with IMS capabilities.
Smartphone manufacturers need to enable IMS services by default on all their devices and ensure adequate testing for smooth interoperability across all networks.

As the network shutdowns continue to gain momentum the Mobile Network Operators need to ensure that their end users have the same quality of experience while on the domestic network and abroad. With legacy networks gradually being phased out is it important that the new IMS technologies are fully supported and tested by device manufacturers who are planning to launch devices across the world.
