Ericsson CEO: We’re ready for the carrier Wi-Fi boom

Ericsson CEO: We’re ready for the carrier Wi-Fi boom | Carrier Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi Offload | Scoop.it

A year after its acquisition of BelAir Networks, Swedish mobile equipment giant Ericsson has fully integrated its high-powered outdoor Wi-Fi technology into its wireless networks. Ericsson’s first commercial small cells will come with BelAir’s technology embedded, letting mobile operators build high-capacity cellular and Wi-Fi networks side by side, Ericsson CEO Hans Vestberg told GigaOM in an interview.

You can think of small cells as Wi-Fi access points that use dedicated mobile spectrum: Just like Wi-Fi access points, they’re short-range wireless nodes designed to pack a lot of bandwidth into a limited area. But unlike Wi-Fi, small cells link to devices directly through their cellular radios.

By putting combo small-cell/Wi-Fi nodes up in heavily trafficked areas both indoors and out, would give mobile networks a capacity double bonus. The cellular aspect would allow networks to handle many more device connections and provide faster speeds over those connections, while Wi-Fi could be used to offload bulk traffic — such as streaming video and file downloads — that would normally congest cellular systems.

Boom times for Carrier Wi-Fi hotspots and Wi-Fi networks

Boom times for Carrier Wi-Fi hotspots and Wi-Fi networks | Carrier Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi Offload | Scoop.it

According to a new research report by Berg Insight, a Gothenburg, Sweden-based market research company, telecom operators had deployed more than 7 million carrier-grade Wi-Fi access points worldwide at the end of 2012. By 2018, that number is going to more than double to about 15 million units, Berg Insight forecasts. Stacey Higginbotham in her 2013 forecast predicted that 2013 will be the year when carriers make up their mind about Wi-Fi, and it seems they have. We have seen many cable companies like Cox launch their own networks. AT&T too has expanded its Wi-Fi footprint. The trend is gaining momentum across the world.

In an interview with GigaOM, Ericsson’s CEO had noted that Wi-Fi would become standard feature in its small cell gear, which is going to help with the growth of carrier Wi-Fi even more.

As carriers start to build out these networks, it makes sense for companies to figure out how to do seamless roaming. The Wi-Fi Alliance’s Hotspot 2.0 and the Wireless Broadband Alliance Next Generation Hotspot (NGH) program should help with the roaming and use of Wi-Fi on handsets. For now, the ideal way to use Wi-Fi when traveling is either Boingo or iPass. I personally use Boingo and don’t leave home without it. I have found that while it isn’t the perfect solution, it is damn near close to the only way to deal with the complex, arcane and often frustrating world of commercial Wi-Fi networks.

Paolini: Small cells or Wi-Fi offload? - FierceWireless

Paolini: Small cells or Wi-Fi offload? - FierceWireless | Carrier Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi Offload | Scoop.it
The answer to this question is easy: We need both small cells and Wi-Fi to fit all the traffic generated by smartphone, tablets and laptops. Historically, the increase in wireless capacity has mostly come from increased cell density.

 

Because they are a new solution that requires new RAN and backhaul equipment, new deployment and business models, and advanced traffic and intererference managment tools, the adoption of small cells is still in a very early phase. Most operators are still evaluating small cells in trials. Existing small-cell deployments are still limited in size as operators try to first address areas where they face the most severe congestion levers and, at the same time, develop their strategy for larger deployments.
