MILPITAS, Calif. -- Kineto Wireless, Inc., the key innovator and leading supplier of solutions that enable delivery of mobile services over broadband, today announced a new Smart Wi-Fi Offload solution that addresses the enormous capacity and coverage challenges mobile operators face today due to rapid subscriber adoption of smartphones.

Kineto’s Smart Wi-Fi Offload solution is the only approach that turns existing Wi-Fi access points into seamless extensions of a mobile operator network, enabling smartphone users to receive all mobile services over Wi-Fi, including voice, SMS, data, IMS and web-based services. The solution offers a number of operator benefits:

  • Solves the capacity crunch: Kineto’s Smart Wi-Fi Offload solution enables mobile operators to get the most from Wi-Fi by offloading all services, including voice, SMS, and all mobile data services (WAP, MMS, IMS, Mobile TV,…), along with web traffic.
  • Resolves the indoor 3G coverage challenge: Since all services are offloaded, mobile operators can now use Wi-Fi to address the indoor 3G coverage problem. With Smart Wi-Fi Offload, Wi-Fi access points worldwide can provide high-performance, low-cost cellular coverage for mobile operators’ primary revenue-generating services.
  • Addresses the mobile VoIP threat: With smartphones, it’s easier than ever for subscribers to download and use mobile VoIP applications to make inexpensive calls when on Wi-Fi. With Kineto’s Smart Wi-Fi Offload solution, mobile operators can now offer discounted or free Wi-Fi calling, giving subscribers an incentive to choose the operator’s own mobile services versus VoIP alternatives. In addition, operators can use discounted Wi-Fi calling as an incentive for subscribers to use Wi-Fi more frequently and thereby realize significant network capacity improvements.

“Smartphones are driving tremendous increases in mobile data usage, straining mobile networks in the process,” commented Peter Jarich, service director with Current Analysis. “Mobile operators need to dramatically increase network capacity in short order, while meeting the performance requirements of their subscriber base. Wi-Fi, installed in millions of homes and offices around the world, as well as in many smartphones themselves, is a natural technology choice for mobile operators to address these growing problems.”

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
