Wi-Fi technology is now ubiquitous, having gained widespread adoption among consumers, enterprises, vendors, and wireless service providers around the world. In large part, the popularity of Wi-Fi can be attributed to the simplicity of its design and its ease of use. While this simplicity has driven widespread Wi-Fi deployment and adoption, fragmentation in approaches to user authentication and security have created acute challenges for communication service providers (CSPs) looking to scale Wi-Fi service provisioning to millions of subscribers.
There has been a rapid increase in interest to improve cellular to Wi-Fi interoperability – not just from mobile operators, but also from cable operators, fixed line operators and enterprises. This three-part whitepaper series will address how ANDSF can help wireless service providers augment network capacity and extend services across heterogeneous networks through policy-based management of mobile device connectivity.
