Increasing use of smart devices, machine to machine communication, rich media applications and content on the cloud is burdening the existing mobile networks and adding to the woes of service providers. These service providers are trying to address the issue by moving to WLAN technology and deploying Wi-Fi hotspots to offload data from their mobile networks. At the same time, cable operators are rolling out ambitious plans to offer Wi-Fi service throughout the U.S. and Canada. Most major North American MSOs are now deploying thousands of Wi-Fi hotspots in their service footprints. In this webinar, we will examine why service providers and cable operators are so bullish on Wi-Fi, what benefits they hope to gain, which areas they’re targeting and what kinds of challenges they face.
We are conducting a webinar with Cisco on Wild about Wi-Fi on Tuesday, June 25, 2013 8:00 AM PT / 11:00 AM ET.
