Carrier Grade WIFI
Carrier Grade WIFI Solutions
Active Ethernet to the Antenna
For decades, mobile services have been elusive to MSOs, it seems that both concepts were mutually exclusive, except for few Operators in the US and Canada, which have implemented WIFI Access in almost every corner of their HFC Plant Footprint.
For us, unlicensed WIFI is the future of Wireless and Telecommunications, even with 5G near complete and universal deployment. The issue is not about speed or signal penetration, but which technology will offer a better cost-benefit ratio with mobile devices doubling or tripling every decade. WIFI 802.11ac currently offers higher bandwidth and data throughput than 4G LTE, and 802.11ax or WIFI 6 will offer also higher speeds than 5G at much better cost.
MSOs must soon realize, that fighting for a piece of the broadband market will require a clear and consistent strategy for implementing Carrier Class WIFI throughout their entire network footprint and embed all their current services in it.
We foresee WIFI as the future for MSOs, because as Cloud and Virtualization Technologies grow, WIFI Services would be complemented by a more reliable and faster data backbone infrastructure that will support highly available wireless networks for future grow and mobility service demand.
