Optimizing the RAN is a big concern of MNOs. RAN contributes 60-80% of network costs and the radio spectrum it utilizes is expensive and scarce. To reduce costs, MNOs offload to traffic from the RAN to WiFi networks. In the next 5 years, WiFi offload would increase marginally by 20% while mobile data will grow manifold by 600%. WiFi offload growth is hampered by the inadequate WiFi coverage.
Our WiFi Offloader, running on TelOS, offers a complete solution. We stitch together the disparate WiFi networks – domestic, public, free and commercial into one seamless fabric. In dense access networks built with small cells, we enable WiFi hotspots to be co-located along with mobile base stations. With both of these approaches, we create a ubiquitous WiFi carpet with end-to-end management, QoS, real-time metering, and analytics.
