ESPOO, Finland -- Nokia Siemens Networks has launched its Smart WLAN Connectivity Solution that enhances mobile broadband through selectively offloading traffic to Wi-Fi without any break in service. This approach can provide faster data connections, ensuring that mobile network capacity is preserved. Smart WLAN Connectivity removes the need to manually switch a device’s data connection between Wi-Fi and cellular broadband, handling the transition without interrupting service.

“We all know that mobile data traffic is growing at an exponential rate due to the widespread adoption of smart phones, tablets and net books,” said Thorsten Robrecht, head of network systems product management at Nokia Siemens Networks. “All these devices support Wi-Fi so integrating Wi-Fi with mobile networks can reduce the need for additional capacity in the wider mobile network, particularly, in traffic hotspot areas. People can enjoy a superior and seamless service without the hassle of having to choose among different networks and technologies, resulting in higher customer satisfaction and loyalty.”

Smart WLAN Connectivity Solution allows integration of Wi-Fi and mobile networks, thereby, providing increased overall network capacity, supporting both data and voice services.

The new Smart WLAN Connectivity Solution is being launched at Mobile World Congress, 2011 in Barcelona, Spain. Network operators, customers, press and analysts are welcome to see the solution at Nokia Siemens Networks’ Experience Center in Hall 8, C01.
