LTE Heterogeneous Networks & Carrier WiFi: What is the opportunity?
WiFi is becoming a key concern for network engineers as more and more wireless carriers are considering it as a cost effective solution for tackling skyrocketing consumer data demand (and cable operators wishing to expand their fixed broadband market appeal). While attractive for its simplicity and wide adoption in user equipment today, WiFi, nevertheless, is no silver bullet in terms of the fundamentals of telecommunications. Like other systems, it is not interference-immune and its capacity has limits. The evolution of the standard offers promises, but user equipment is years from being able to leverage that evolution. This webinar will address the design challenges of a carrier WiFi network and assess its potential as a data offloading solution for existing 3G networks.
Join us for this free webinar as we address the following:
- Identifying where and how to deploy WiFi (indoor, outdoor)
- Designing a carrier WiFi network using outdoor hotspots in a metropolitan area
- Assessing the potential for data offloading from an existing 3G network
