Nokia Siemens’ Smart Wi-Fi comprises four elements — Smart Wi-Fi Connect, Smart Wi-Fi Converge, Smart Wi-Fi Optimize and Smart Wi-Fi Personalize.

Mobile operators can select the best wireless access technology to deliver a secure mobile broadband experience for customers.

Randy Cox, head of Small Cell Product Management, Nokia Siemens Networks, says NSN’s Smart Wi-Fi enable mobile operators to control Wi-Fi networks to deliver a cellular-like experience on Wi-Fi as part of a broader HetNet.

Smart Wi-Fi can be integrated with the Zone solution to control the Wi-Fi layer.

Smart Wi-Fi Connect allows operators to deploy their own Wi-Fi networks. The solution element includes high-performance access points and gateways for operators who are deploying their own Wi-Fi networks.

In addition, the company provides the service capabilities to analyze, plan, deploy, integrate and optimize the operator’s own or partner Wi-Fi networks.

Smart Wi-Fi Converge enables operators to integrate Wi-Fi networks into their core network and provide device provisioning for seamless subscriber access to Wi-Fi. This element includes device management and subscriber authentication for provisioning Wi-Fi, as well as approaches to managing security, billing and policy control and the tools to deliver cellular services over Wi-Fi.

Smart Wi-Fi Optimize introduces Wi-Fi traffic steering capabilities based on Wi-Fi traffic loading. Operators are able to decide based on the traffic level when to steer subscribers between Wi-Fi and cellular to ensure that subscribers are always using the most suitable network layer to provide optimum performance.

NSN’s Customer Experience Management (CEM) on Demand gives operators subscriber level visibility and allows them to target subscriber segments to provide promotional Wi-Fi sign-up campaigns and/or automatic Wi-Fi provisioning.
