Mobile Data Offloading solution enables operators to rapidly and cost-effectively deploy large Wi-Fi networks with high quality of service
Alvarion® Ltd. (NASDAQ: ALVR), a provider of optimized wireless broadband solutions addressing the connectivity, coverage and capacity challenges of public and private networks, today announced the availability of a new solution for Wi-Fi mobile data offloading in 3G and LTE networks. Alvarion's carrier-grade Wi-Fi provides a comprehensive solution addressing the scalability, reliability and security needs of operators deploying large scale Wi-Fi networks for mobile data offloading and hot zones.
Alvarion's Mobile Data Offloading solution allows operators to benefit from increased network capacity and coverage in high traffic areas where data congestion is overloading current 3G/LTE networks. Operators can use the Wi-Fi network for more cost-effective connectivity of data users while delivering the same level of service. This allows operators to expand their network coverage and capacity, returning the original capacity to their 3G/LTE network.
By using Alvarion's Mobile Data Offloading solution, operators are able to retain customers on their network, reduce churn and improve customer satisfaction. By implementing a carrier-grade Wi-Fi solution, operators can view network users and their usage information giving them insight into user behavior. Based on these findings, operators can begin to offer revenue generating services such as location based services and mobile advertising, or lease extra capacity to service providers.
This offloading solution is based on carrier-grade two-way Beamforming Wi-Fi technology enabling a high level of service, fast connectivity and secured access to the Internet. Alvarion offers seamless authentication between networks for ease of service continuity. Embedded access controller allows for scalable networks and lower backhauling costs with direct tunneling from base stations to the operator's core. The solution is Hot Spot 2.0 and 802.11u ready permitting a 'cellular-like' experience over the Wi-Fi network with zero-configuration from the user.
"By all accounts, operators expect their mobile Internet traffic to grow exponentially through the near and medium-term," states Peter Jarich, Service Director, Service Provider Infrastructure & Mobile Ecosystem at Current Analysis. "With the abundance of Wi-Fi enabled smartphones, tablets and laptops, it only makes sense for these same operators to implement a data offload solution that is easy to install, cost-effective, scalable and takes advantage of free unlicensed spectrum."
"Using Alvarion's Wi-Fi technology, tightly integrated with the mobile operators' core network, enables us to offer our customers more solutions for their growing capacity challenges," states Tal Meirzon, COO at Alvarion. "The vision of Wi-Fi and 3G/LTE networks merging as one network is becoming a reality. Our latest offering for mobile data offloading allows operators to address the challenges of data offload and at the same time provide a high quality user experience."
Alvarion will be at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, February 27 to March 1, Hall 2, booths C25 and A114. To schedule a meeting or press interview, please contact email@example.com.
