Industry Initiative: Accelerating & Scaling Carrier WiFi
Duration: 60 minutes
WiFi is here now. It is used on many different devices every day. And it is on the rise. However, only a select few operators have started to exploit the technology to its full potential. This Light Reading Industry Initiative webinar will examine how operators can scale carrier-grade WiFi networks, and why accelerating that investment is commercially attractive.
Drawing on international best-practice, and the experience of leading carrier WiFi system vendors, it will address the following:
Advanced WiFi Access, including: high-density indoor environments, integration with licensed small cells, and 802.11ac at 5GHz
Carrier Wi-Fi integration with the operator network, including: integration with the IP network (fixed and mobile) and network software systems (e.g. AAA integration to the mobile core)
Monetization of WiFi, including: Roaming, Wholesale, Advertising, and Venue/location-based services
