InterDigital Presents at Wi-Fi Global Congress: Look Beyond Offload to Wi-Fi/Cellular Integration
Presentation, White Paper and Extension of Smart Access Manager to
LTE Highlight Trend Toward Policy-Driven Integration Between LTE and
SEOUL, South Korea--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Although mobile operators worldwide are increasingly looking to Wi-Fi®
offload technologies to meet increasing data requirements, that strategy
is only a first step toward true broadband traffic management. At this
Global Congress in Seoul, South Korea, InterDigital (NASDAQ: IDCC)
will present a new vision for industry-wide seamless integration
strategies, accompanied by a technical white paper on Wi-Fi integration
and a demonstration of an integrated, policy-driven Wi-Fi/cellular
solution that can enable a wider range of innovative services, QoS
mechanisms and tariff options.
On June 27, Narayan Menon, InterDigital's Vice President, Research and
Development, will give a presentation outlining the network architecture
and standards-based solutions for prioritizing and seamlessly managing
traffic across disparate access technologies, including Wi-Fi, 3G and
LTE. The presentation, "Effective Wi-Fi and cellular network
integration: Alleviate congestion and enable cost-effective service
delivery," will demystify emerging strategies such as application-based
offload, policy-driven traffic segregation and bandwidth aggregation.
InterDigital's presence at Wi-Fi Global Congress is also highlighted by
two additional events:
The release of a comprehensive technical whitepaper on Wi-Fi/Cellular
integration, tracing the history of the technologies as well as
current and future strategies for integration. Intended for a
technical audience, the paper — "Cellular-Wi-Fi Integration: a
comprehensive analysis of the technology and standardization roadmap"
— provides a comprehensive backgrounder for wireless scientists
interested in standards-based Wi-Fi/cellular integration.
The extension of InterDigital's Smart Access Manager (SAM)
policy-driven traffic management solution to LTE. By extending SAM,
which was highlighted by InterDigital and Alcatel-Lucent at this
year's Mobile World Congress, to LTE, InterDigital provides a proven
platform for integration of Wi-Fi with LTE as well as other
"With Wi-Fi offload, the wireless industry took its first step toward a
vision that InterDigital has been developing for more than five years: a
network of networks," said Mr. Menon. "At Wi-Fi Global Congress,
we'll provide a roadmap and discuss a commercial product that should
enable the industry to take the next step, where Wi-Fi is so tightly
integrated with 3G/LTE cellular technologies that together, they provide
a seamless, innovative and consistently great user experience."
