With the emergence of smart phones, technical device and tablets, mobile data usage is now threatening to decrease the quality of service provided by many mobile network operators. The growth in data revenue cannot cover the decline in voice revenues, threatening mobile operators in a position to upgrade their network capacity. This unexpected rapid growth of smart devices is over burdening 3G networks and forcing Telco to find a complementary solution, fast and easy, to recuperate acceptable browsing, video streaming and other data-intensive experiences.
Wi-Fi offload for 3G
Utilizing existing Wi-Fi PWLAN network to offload the congested 3G mobile data is a sustainable and solid-proved model through field implementations that Mobile Operators has immediate benefits where :
- Wi-Fi is ready built-in the mobile devices today.
- Wi-Fi hotspots can be built economically and the coverage can be expanded incrementally.
- PWLAN Accounting and Roaming infrastructure already exist. Saves time and cost for new technology.
