Taking Wi-Fi beyond offload

This white paper explores how Wi-Fi networks can become more tightly integrated within mobile broadband networks and, equally important, within the service platforms, by using programs such as Hotspot 2.0, Passpoint, NGH (Next Generation Hotspot), and ANDSF (Access Network Discovery and Selection Function).

It outlines examples of how operators can use Wi-Fi to increase revenues, offer better customer service and choice, and control costs.

These use-case examples include add-on services that provide enterprise or carrier-grade security for enterprise customers, personalized Wi-Fi access, optimized use of network resources, roaming across domestic and global hotspots, and venue-based analytics and applications.
