Lead Team: Alvarion, a provider of optimized wireless broadband solutions,
unveils its Mobile Data Offloading solution for 3G and LTE networks, which will
enable operators to reap benefits from increased network capacity and coverage
in high traffic areas where data congestion is overloading current 3G/LTE
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.
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,” said Tal Meirzon, COO at Alvarion.
This 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
In addition, operators can view network users and their
usage information giving them insight into user behavior.
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.
The solution’s embedded access controller allows for
scalable networks and lower backhauling costs with direct tunneling from base
stations to the operator’s core.
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,” said Peter Jarich, Service Director,
Service Provider Infrastructure & Mobile Ecosystem at Current Analysis.”
showcased this solution along with Wi-Fi services in metro and rural areas,
In-building capacity and coverage, and LTE-future ready solutions at Mobile
World Congress in Barcelona.
