InterDigital and ip.access: Wi-Fi and LTE Small Cell Integration

February 14, 2013 / Posted By: vandewille

InterDigital was mentioned in a wonderful article today by Caroline Gabriel of Rethink Wireless, who wrote this piece regarding our joint announcement of Wi-Fi/LTE integration in small cells. You can read the press release at ip.access’ website, here.

Small cells are an important operator-focused solution, and much of the talk in the mobile space over the past year has been on Wi-Fi/cellular integration – including a white paper that we wrote outlining various technology approaches to the issue. The technology with ip.access gives operators the capability to integrate LTE and Wi-Fi within small cells, and what that allows operators to do is maintain Quality of Service (QoS), regardless of network, while intelligently managing network resources.

The demonstration will be part of ip.access’ booth in Hall 7 Stand E105 at Mobile World Congress, and stay tuned for a breakdown of the various technologies we’ll be showcasing in Barcelona.
