The 4G technology, known as Long Term Evolution (LTE), has been dominating the telecommunication market the last years offering a high data rate (up to 100Mbps) that will perfectly satisfy the users multimedia applications needs in term of bandwidth. Designed to be a fully packet switched network, LTE lack in offering the voice CS service. This paper propose an analytical model for simulating the performance of Voice over LTE (VoLTE) while presenting an overview of the latest up to date solutions for the voice over LTE such as Circuit Switched Fall Back, Voice over LTE via Generic Access and third party services for providing call continuity over LTE.
