    Man, I have heard 4G is IP only ?. Means it carries voice over IP. Is it so ?

      No, I think voice is not carried over ip for normal phone calls. Is tht wht you mean ?

    Hey Sarath,

    Helpful post! I read this on Wikipedia

    Unlike 3G, which is based on two parallel infrastructures consisting of circuit switched and packet switched network nodes, 4G will be based on packet switching only. This will require low-latency data transmission.

    You can read the full article here:(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/4G)

    So if 4G is based on packet switching only that means that is IP based (or some protocol similar to IP) isn’t it?
