Kineto Offers WiFi Offload
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.
