If a VoLTE call is ongoing and a RRC connection re-establishment occurs on the serving cell due to RLF, the call will be muted during the re-establishment process. The call will not drop unless the re-establishment fails.

The re-establishment process will typically take a few seconds. During this time, the UE will send a RRC Connection Reestablishment Request message to the serving cell. The serving cell will then verify the UE’s identity and context, and if everything is correct, it will send a RRC Connection Reestablishment Response message. Once the UE has received the RRC Connection Reestablishment Response message, the call will be unmuted and will continue as normal.

If the re-establishment fails, the UE will enter a RRC Idle state and the call will be dropped.
