Leveraging 3G/4G WiFi offloading to reduce congestion and increase ROI

Now available on-demand

The ever increasing demand for higher bandwidth has made it imperative to employ innovative offloading solutions to access the public IP networks at lower cost with ease of use. It would help cellular network operators to sustain the subscribers and provide them services at lower cost by reducing the load on the core network. This would also help in maximizing returns on the scarce and expensive cellular (3G/4G/WiMAX/CDMA) radio spectrum by offloading users from it to the inexpensive WiFi technology, thereby helping operators to avoid the cellular spectrum CAPEX costs. WiFi is an inexpensive and ubiquitously available technology that makes it an ideal choice for offloading data in cellular networks.

In this webinar our experts will discuss how Network Equipment Manufacturers can develop highly effective WiFi offloading solution that can help reduce CAPEX and OPEX requirements. They will also present exhaustive insights into the architectures and functionalities of the various WiFi offloading solutions for technologies such as 3G, LTE, WiMAX and CDMA. It would also address how the cellular operators can provide common identity to UEs for cellular and Wi-Fi access through their SIM and thus provide common billing. They will also provide details about the feature rich carrier grade software solutions by Aricent that can enable OEMs to develop highly scalable standard compliant WiFi offloading solutions that can support both trusted and untrusted WiFi networks.

What attendees will learn from this webinar:
  • Leveraging WiFi offloading to provide cost effective solutions, reduce load/congestion on core network and improve ROI
  • The different architecture and features of various WiFi offloading solutions for various network technologies that support both trusted and untrusted WiFi networks
  • Identifying the UE through common identity through SIM both in Wi-Fi and cellular networks and thus provide common charging
  • Details about the various network elements and gateways needed to implement the offloading solutions
  • Developing cost effective and highly scalable WiFi offloading solution for cellular networks (LTE, WiMAX, 3G and CDMA)
