Strategies for Effective Wi-Fi Offload
White Paper / Jun 2015 / Wi-Fi, Carrier-Grade Wi-Fi

Nowadays, agile operators view unlicensed spectrum as a tool that can be used to help build a heterogeneous network that offers users a homogenous experience. Wi-Fi is no longer considered the competition, but instead a potential partner. To learn more about carrier-grade Wi-Fi, how operators are integrating Wi-Fi into their service offerings and more, check out this feature report.

Report Sponsors: Strategies for effective Wi-Fi offload By Martha DeGrasse B O N U S S U P P L I E R G U I D E 16 WIRELESS INFRASTRUCTURE COMPANIES SERVICE, TRAINING, STAFFING, HARDWARE, COMPONENT AND ACCESSORY COMPANIES J U N E 2 0 1 5 Featured Analyst: 2 F E A T U R E R E P O R T Introduction As much as half of all mobile data is offloaded from cellular networks to Wi-Fi, and that amount is growing each day. By next year, mobile operators will see more traffic offloaded to Wi-Fi than remains on cellular networks, according to Cisco?s most recent Visual Networking Index. The vast majority of Wi-Fi offload is user driven. Mobile subscribers purposely move their devices to Wi-Fi networks when they are within range, or set their phones to con- nect automatically to home or office Wi-Fi access points. This gives users faster con- nection speeds from Wi-Fi and its wired backbone, and lower monthly data bills from their wireless carriers. Now those carriers are investigating carrier-driven Wi-Fi offload by offering subscribers more opportunities to use Wi-Fi when they are on the go. Carrier- driven Wi-Fi offload can increase customer satisfaction, network capacity and even revenue. In order to achieve these goals, carrier-driven Wi-Fi offload needs to leverage network intelligence to ensure efficient and effective offload. Don?t, don?t you want me? Moving a customer off the network Why would a carrier choose to move a customer off its network? There are several possible reasons. 1. Customer experience. In today?s cutthroat pricing environment, keeping customers connected and happy is paramount. If the cellular network offers a subpar connection in a given area, moving a customer to reliable Wi-Fi can keep the network?s problem from becoming the customer?s problem. Even in places where coverage and capacity are sufficient for most use cases, heavy user traffic can overload the network. Moving some users to Wi-Fi can keep all users happy. ?We?ll do everything we can to solve your problems, and today, that?s about uniting Wi-Fi with our data strong network for un- precedented coverage,? said T-Mobile US CEO John Legere in announcing the ?un- carrier?s? Wi-Fi Unleashed promotion last 3 F E A T U R E R E P O R T year. All new smartphones sold by T-Mobile US now support Wi-Fi for both voice and data, and T-Mobile US has encouraged cus- tomers to upgrade to those phones so that they can move to Wi-Fi when the T-Mobile US network is not available. 2. Capacity. Almost 80% of all mobile data consumption now occurs indoors, and much of that usage is taking place on the macro network. Analyst Monica Paolini, founder of Senza Fili Consulting, gave the following example: ?When I am indoors, in a mall for example, checking my e-mail or watching video or whatever I am doing, I am using a lot of re- sources from the macro cells. So if I can use instead ? small cells or Wi-Fi in in the mall, I basically free capacity at the macro level. So even if the operator cannot charge me for that, and even if that is completely free, the operator gets more capacity in the mac- ro and that can be used to serve more sub- scribers, or it allows the operator to build less macro infrastructure or to increase the user experience.? A carrier that serves an enterprise cus- tomer in a busy downtown area may not have enough bandwidth to satisfy custom- ers on the street and inside the building. Adding capacity to a nearby tower or in- vesting in an outdoor small cell network might be more expensive than offloading to the enterprise Wi-Fi network, or even de- ploying carrier Wi-Fi. ?Managed Wi-Fi networks have a cost sav- ings compared to cellular networks,? said Robert Gazda, senior director of technology development at InterDigital. Operators typi- cally need to deploy both gateways and ac- cess points in order to offer managed Wi-Fi. ?Wi-Fi hot spots are relatively simple and very affordable because there?s high availability, lots of competitors and actu- ally installation can exceed the cost of the hardware,? said Iain Gillott, founder of iGR Research and author of Global Wi-Fi Off- load Traffic Forecast, 2014 ? 2019: An Al- ternative to LTE. Gillott?s research showed that LTE sup- ports an increasing amount of the high- bandwidth activities traditionally reserved for Wi-Fi. As LTE networks near capacity during peak use, operators may want to consider Wi-Fi offload as an alternative to ?The operator gets more capacity in the macro and that can be used to serve more subscribers.? Monica Paolini, Senza Fili Consulting. more LTE capacity. ?The fact that you cannot charge for some- thing doesn?t mean that there is no finan- cial advantage,? said Paolini. But of course operators would rather charge if they can, and some are considering their own Wi-Fi networks in hopes that they can charge for access. 3. New revenue. The jury is still out on whether carriers can charge for Wi-Fi. Con- sumers expect most Wi-Fi to be complimen- tary, except on airplanes and in hotels. But as Wi-Fi becomes more integrated with cel- lular, it is possible that carriers will be able to charge consumers and enterprise customers for data or voice calls on Wi-Fi networks. Interop Technologies, which offers a ?Managed Wi-Fi networks have a cost savings compared to cellular networks.?

Paolini said she sees no reason why op- erators could not charge customers for use of carrier-built Wi-Fi networks. ?If the operator has spent money to build the network and the service is completely transparent to me ? I see no reason why I shouldn?t pay,? she said. ?But it may be that in the marketplace consumers will not ac- cept it and they will have to do it for free.? Carriers may find other ways to monetize Wi-Fi networks through data analytics and location-based services. Operators who de- ploy Wi-Fi for retail-oriented venues may be able to sell this data back to the venues, es- pecially if they can help the retailers use the network to push location-based advertising to consumers. ?Those venue owners go back to the oper- ators ? and they ask those questions: ?Who is the user? What age are they? What kind of devices are they using? How long are they staying? How can I get access to that information?? There?s a lot of value in that information,? said Aptilo Networks CEO Paul Mikkelsen. Knowing who is in a venue is valuable to a retailer, and so is knowing where those people are. Wi-Fi equipment makers are working hard to bring operators and venue owners solutions that will offer location- based information about Wi-Fi users. Ruck- us Wireless says its platform detects device locations in real-time within a range of five to eight meters, with 80% accuracy. Should I stay or should I go now? Knowing when to transition users off the cellular network Mobile operators have plenty of reasons to consider Wi-Fi offload, and they have plenty of reasons to be nervous. If carri- ers push subscribers onto inconsistent, untrusted Wi-Fi networks, they are likely to lose customers. If they push subscribers onto reliable Wi-Fi when the cellular net- work is not overloaded, they are likely to lose revenue. Users on a 3G network will almost al- ways get a better data experience if they move to Wi-Fi, but that is not true for LTE users. A network policy that automatically moves all LTE users to Wi-Fi when they are within range could potentially create an overloaded and slow Wi-Fi access point and an empty LTE network. ?Shareholders I don?t think would be very happy if you spent billions on your LTE net- work and then moved all the traffic to Wi- Fi,? said Iain Gillott. Paolini said that a lot of carrier-driven offload to date has been from 3G networks to Wi-Fi, as operators choose Wi-Fi over investments in 3G small cells. ?Right now because a lot of the congestion is on 3G and not on LTE, Wi-Fi is a better solution because [operators] don?t want to deploy too many 3G small cells because the business case is not as good as it is for 4G small cells,? said Paolini. Voice and data sessions can be moved from 3G to Wi-Fi, but seamless handover to Wi-Fi that is fully integrated with the mobile core is more clearly defined for LTE than for 3G. ?It?s mainly handovers to/from LTE-WiFi today,? said Pierre Lynch, lead technologist on the product management team at Ixia. ?Handovers between Wi-Fi and 3G UMTS would be possible technologically, but it requires either support of [voice F E A T U R E R E P O R T ?I don?t think shareholders would be very happy if you spent billions on your LTE network and then moved all the traffic to Wi-Fi.?

Jon Schniepp, Republic Wireless. from a practical sense, LTE and Wi-Fi will work together for handovers, while UMTS/HSPA and Wi-Fi will not.?. Paolini said that operators who move subscribers between LTE and Wi-Fi need network visibility so that they know what connection users have when they approach a Wi-Fi network, and also how well that Wi-Fi network is performing. Handset software can detect a deteriorating cellular connection and direct users to trusted Wi-Fi networks. Policies that tell the device when to choose Wi-Fi can be set by either the operator or the user. ?Our handsets are constantly evaluating the network conditions and other factors that affect call quality,? said Jon Schniepp, SVP of product over HSPA] or [single radio-voice call continuity] specifically for this. Not many people support this, which means that Source: Ixia 7 F E A T U R E R E P O R T hot spot in a busy Starbucks may be), our phones automatically switch the call to the cellular network so calls don?t degrade.? ?Right now, the control of the Wi-Fi offload is more in the terminal, not in the networks,? explained Jim Miller, director of radio standards at InterDigital. ?The operator has less control over Wi-Fi offload from the network side.? Operators can push policy to devices, but those policies will not be effective without solid information about the Wi- Fi network in the user?s location. Vendors are working hard to create solutions that address that need for information. Mosaik Solutions, which maintains an in-depth database of wireless network coverage and infrastructure components, has partnered with Wi-Fi network services provider BSG Wireless to create a Wi-Fi hot spot database. Cloud-based solutions can give operators more information by analyzing data from user devices. Devicescape offers operators a solution that analyzes user-generated data about Wi-Fi hot spots to find and favor the best connections. ?Every one of those users is out there finding and importing new things and then the back-end processing analyzes what gets reported and decides whether or not to include it in the network,? explained Devicescape CTO John Gordon. The company calls its service a ?curated virtual network.? Smith Micro Software?s cloud- controlled software dynamically pushes policy to devices, based on input from other devices on the network. For example, if one subscriber tries to connect to Wi-Fi and has a bad experience, the next subscriber to approach that hot spot will stay on the LTE network. ?The devices can update themselves by virtue of self-learning technology,? said Carla Fitzgerald, CMO at Smith Micro Software. ?It eliminates that manual step of the operator needing to look at analytics, evaluate analytics, understand what?s happening and then manually push policy. ... My device?s experience can update the service and it can dynamically push a new policy out to any devices in the geofence.? ?Devices can update themselves by virtue of self-learning technology.? Carla Fitzgerald, Smith Micro Software. Who are you? Now tell me: who are you? Authentication, handovers and security Users can be authenticated to Wi-Fi networks in one of two ways. Portal au- thentication (Layer 3) typically means that a captive portal requests subscriber credentials and communicates with both the authentication, authorization and ac- counting server and with a wireless access gateway. The user?s credentials are stored in the AAA server?s cache so that the user should be authenticated automatically if they returns to the Wi-Fi hot spot. EAP-SIM authentication (Layer 2) is extensible authentication protocol. The handset sends user credentials from the SIM card to the Wi-Fi access point, which uses RADIUS to communicate with the AAA server. The AAA uses SS7/MAP or diameter signaling to retrieve GSM/LTE authentica- tion vectors from the home location reg- ister in an LTE network or from the home subscriber server in a 3G network. Security EAP-SIM authentication is considered more secure than portal authentication. According to Cisco, EAP messages can be used to negotiate encryption keys for the IEEE 802.11i-based encryption of the ra- dio interface. When authentication is secure and the Wi-Fi access point is known to the network operator, the Wi-Fi access point is said to be ?trusted.? 3GPP does not specify which non-3GPP technologies should be consid- ered trusted or untrusted. This decision is made by the operator. 8 F E A T U R E R E P O R T ?Trusted Wi-Fi access is typically con- trolled or owned by the mobile network operator,? said InterDigital?s Gazda. ?Trust- ed Wi-Fi also must have sufficient levels of security ? typically 802.x (EAP-based secure authentication, encryption on the Wi-Fi air-interface, etc.) ? that allow direct connection from the Wi-Fi network to the core network.? Before LTE, 3GPP did not define trusted non-3GPP IP access. WLAN architecture is usually considered un- trusted. Access points are typically not controlled or monitored by the opera- tor, and often authentication is not en- crypted. Today the vast majority of Wi- Fi hot spots are untrusted. Handovers Seamless handovers are key to fulfilling the promise of Wi-Fi offload. In order for a mobile data session to transition seamless- ly to the Wi-Fi network, the user session needs to maintain the same IP address. This can enable low latency applications like voice calls and video chat to continue uninterrupted when the user moves to the new network. The 3GPP defines mechanisms for han- dover from LTE networks to trusted Wi- Fi networks, but not from 3G networks to trusted Wi-Fi. The standards board also defines a handover mechanism from LTE to untrusted Wi-Fi, and from 3G to untrusted Wi-Fi. The handovers from LTE or 3G to un- trusted Wi-Fi are the most common today. Secure IPsec tunnels connect mobile de- service provider?s network. In many cases, devices are automatically granted access to the network based upon credential mechanisms, such as EAP-SIM authentication. Over-the-air transmissions are encrypted using WPA2 security. Boingo, Orange, SK Telecom, Time Warner Cable and Telkom Indonesia are among the operators that have deployed Passpoint- enabled networks. The Wireless Broadband Alliance?s Next Generation Hotspot defines standards and guidelines to enable roaming and network interoperability between different provid- ers when Passpoint-certified equipment is in use. The Wireless Broadband Alliance is carrier-driven industry group that is work- ing to make Wi-Fi interworking and roaming more efficient and reliable for operators and service providers. Everybody?s doing it now Wi-Fi seems to be everywhere Businesses large and small are deploy- ing Wi-Fi to keep employees and custom- ers connected, and in some cases to offer online promotions or corporate content. Public venues are beefing up their Wi-Fi to keep guests online, and many are turn- ing to telcos, cable operators and wireless carriers for Wi-Fi solutions. IHS Infonet- ics is projecting an 88% increase in car- rier Wi-Fi equipment revenue this year. According to Cisco, the world?s largest maker of Wi-Fi network equipment, much of the spending will be motivated by en- terprise upgrades to 802.11ac. vices to an intermediate node called an enhanced packet data gateway (EPDG), which then connects to the core network. Sprint is using secure tunnels to authenticate its users on Boingo?s airport Wi-Fi networks. The carrier has an app on its Android phones that find and connect to Boingo Wi-Fi. ?Boingo as the visited gateway opera- tor has an encrypted tunnel to the Sprint network authentication systems,? said Boingo CTO Derek Peterson. ?Sprint re- ceives a Boingo RADIUS authentication request and it forwards that request to their HLR/HSS systems. Those systems respond back to Boingo with a proper authentication/authorization accept.? Handovers are expected to become more seamless as an increasing number of devices and access points support Hotspot 2.0, which is a standard devel- oped by the members of the Wi-Fi Alli- ance to enable seamless authentication of mobile devices to Wi-Fi networks. The Wi-Fi Alliance is an industry consortium made up primarily of wireless hardware makers, including the leading wireless semiconductor companies. Devices that are Hotspot 2.0 enabled are called Passpoint certified devices. Passpoint certified end-user devices will discover and automatically choose Pas- spoint certified hot spots based upon user preferences and operator policies. A new user account can be established at the point of access, enabling auto- matic connection to other hot spots in a 1 Enhanced Mobile Networks to Deliver 1000 Times More Capacity by 2020. ?2013 Nokia Solutions and Networks 2 Business Case for Enterprise Small Cells ?

Subscribers demand that quality and reliability continue to rise, and operators must consistently deliver compelling new services and pricing plans based on performance.

Testing to insure quality of service The cost of deploying Wi-Fi hot spots may be much lower than some competing solutions for network densification, but S ou rc e: i P a ss Source: Mobile Experts Wi-Fi network operators like iPass project huge growth in hot spot deployment, but many of the access points deployed by individuals and small businesses will not be carrier-grade. A true carrier-grade Wi-Fi network has several key characteristics, according to the Wireless Broadband Alli- ance. It will deliver at least 1 gigabit per second (for 802.11ac), enable handoff and seamless authentication across multiple Wi-Fi networks and to cellular, offer roaming and a high level of security, and be managed by the carrier?s OSS/BSS, which requires integration with the core network. 160.0 140.0 120.0 100.0 80.0 60.0 40.0 20.0 0.0 2013 2014 2015 2016 AP In st al le d B as e (M ill io ns ) Wi-Fi Hot Spots 2017 2018 2019 Carrier Grade Homespots 11 Wi-Fi can expose a carrier to a higher level of risk if it is not tested properly. If the car- rier encourages or automates Wi-Fi offload and users have a bad experience, they are likely to blame the carrier rather than the Wi-Fi network. Each part of a Wi-Fi access network needs to be tested separately, according to test solutions developer Ixia. Wi-Fi net- works include access points, gateways and any packet core integration elements, and each of these should be isolated and emulated, according to Ixia. The company said that core network elements should also be emulated to better isolate access and offload components. There are two ways to validate Wi-Fi/ cellular handovers, according to Ixia?s Pierre Lynch. One is replacing the Wi-Fi access points and the ENodeB (for LTE) with simulation equipment, and perform- ing the handovers. The other is simulating the handsets on the air interface itself, for both LTE and Wi-Fi, such that the Wi-Fi AP and the ENodeB are both part of the system under test. ?The interference is typically between the metro and macro layers, but some people have expressed concern in regions where the cellular spectrum is at 2.4 GHz,? said Lynch. The 2.4 GHz band is one of two frequency bands used for Wi-Fi; the other is the 5 GHz band. Both have been available for Wi-Fi for more than a decade, but devices oper- ating in the 2.4 GHz band caught on faster in the early days of Wi-Fi. Now 5 GHz is the spectrum band of choice for 802.11ac. The long and winding road U.S. carriers and Wi-Fi offload Compared to their counterparts in some other parts of the world, U.S. carriers have been slow to deploy Wi-Fi. In the highly congested areas of Japan and South Ko- rea, carriers are using Wi-Fi in conjunction with small cells to offload traffic from the macro network. SoftBank, NTT DoCoMo and SK Telecom have all been early adopt- ers of carrier Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi offload. Soft- bank recently said it will open its 400,000 Wi-Fi hot spots to all visitors to Japan at no charge. In the United States, AT&T is the only operator that owns and operates a signifi- cant number of Wi-Fi hot spots. The car- rier offers an auto-authentication feature to move users seamlessly to and from its Wi-Fi network. AT&T also deploys Wi-Fi networks for enterprise customers such as sports arenas. Sprint and T-Mobile US have both owned Wi-Fi networks in the past. T-Mobile US de- ployed the original Starbucks Wi-Fi, which then passed to AT&T and then to Google. Sprint sold its network to Boingo Wire- less, and now finds itself partnering with Boingo for Wi-Fi offload. Sprint recently announced a deal with Boingo that will au- tomatically move traffic from Sprint?s cel- lular network to Boingo?s Wi-Fi network in 35 airports around the country. Sprint has recently described Wi- Fi as ?the fourth layer? of its network, F E A T U R E R E P O R T S ou rc e: W ir el es s B ro a d bn d A ll ia n ce What is Carrier-grade Wi-Fi? The rising importance of carrier- grade Wi-Fi to enable new business models prompted the WBA to re- lease a comprehensive definition of Carrier Wi-Fi, which can be rather a vague and overused term, in 2014. This aimed to help drive all provid- ers towards common approaches to user experience and end-to-end management. The WBA brought together nearly 20 large operators and vendors to participate in creat- ing its definition. The WBA Guidelines state that the following standardized Carrier Wi-Fi capabilities are needed to ensure networks can scale to meet the requirements of the industry: ? Consistent User Experience ? Network Discovery and Access ? Authentication and Security ? Service Experience ? Fully Integrated End-to-End Network ? Network Architecture ? End-t0-End Service Provisioning ? Network Management ? Network Quality ? Network Security ? Network Managability 12 complementing the existing layers represented by the 1.9 GHz, 2.5 GHz, and 800 MHz spectrum bands. The carrier is deploying Cisco Wi-Fi hot spots throughout Kansas City (Sprint?s hometown) to offload traffic from its cellular network and provide free Wi-Fi to customers of all carriers. Sprint said that its Wi-Fi network will be the backbone of Kansas City?s smart and connected city framework. T-Mobile US has been one of the most aggressive adopters of voice-over-Wi-Fi, and has positioned Wi-Fi calling as a ser- vice for customers rather than an offload strategy. Google?s Project Fi can also be seen as a kind of Wi-Fi offload for T- Mobile US. In this case, T-Mobile US is offloading not traffic, but customers to Google?s Wi-Fi-first mobile service, as a number of T-Mobile US subscribers are switching to Google Fi. T-Mobile US has not disclosed how much Google is paying for the use of its spectrum, but this rev- enue stream may more than outweigh the loss of some subscribers, given T-Mobile US? current pricing strategy. Verizon Wireless has been more conser- vative with respect to Wi-Fi in its wire- less business, and has stated explicitly that it is not in the business of building a Wi-Fi network. ?While we have consistently avoided building our own Wi-Fi networks outside of unique venue such as stadiums, we have always viewed Wi-Fi as complementary to our managed network,? Verizon Communi- cations recently said in an earnings call. At the same time, Verizon has aggressively deployed Wi-Fi routers to leverage its fiber- to-the-home business, FiOS. The company claims that its FiOS Quantum Gateway delivers the fastest Wi-Fi speeds available in the United States. Regional operators Regional operators often find that Wi-Fi offload is a cost-effective way to add capac- ity to the network, or to enable roaming out- side the coverage zone. ?Where there were challenges getting LTE rolled out and higher bandwidth services for mobile devices, Wi-FI came in as a bit of a stop gap in some cases for carriers that needed to connect their users and satisfy the needs for growth,? said Bruce Miller, VP of product management at Xirrus. ?Where LTE became more prevalent then you saw a pull back a bit in terms of the activity related to Wi-Fi so it really was regionally dependent.? C Spire, which offers service in 23 U.S. states, has worked with Xirrus to offload traffic to Wi-Fi in high-traffic areas. C Spire deployed roughly 800 Xirrus access points at The University of Mississippi?s Vaught- Hemingway Stadium. C Spire provides free network access to its customers in the sta- dium. Fans with service from other wire- less providers can access the network for a $5 fee each game. MVNOs Some mobile virtual network operators do not see Wi-Fi as an offload strategy; in- stead they aim for ?Wi-Fi first.? ?Our approach is to prefer Wi-Fi when- ever available,? said Republic Wireless? Jon Schniepp. ?So, if we see a viable Wi-Fi net- work for the call, it will be initiated on the Wi-Fi network. If the Wi-Fi network is not viable, we automatically switch callers to the cellular network. By anchoring calls in the cloud Republic can cut calls from Wi- Fi over to cellular in milliseconds so that moving out of Wi-Fi coverage does not in- terrupt a call.? Call me maybe Carriers experiment with VoWi-Fi Voice-over-Wi-Fi has been of interest to operators ever since the move toward IP networks began, but Apple created a new sense of urgency when it announced F E A T U R E R E P O R T ?Wi-Fi came in as a bit of a stop gap in some cases for carriers that needed to connect their users and satisfy the needs for growth.? Bruce Miller, Xirrus. 13 F E A T U R E R E P O R T support for voice-over-Wi-Fi as part of iOS 8. Since that time, all four major U.S. carriers have launched or announced plans to launch voice-over-Wi-Fi. Meanwhile Wi-Fi first operators are of- fering low-cost wireless plans that rely primarily on Wi-Fi for voice and data, and move users to cellular when Wi- Fi is not available. Republic Wireless, Scratch Wireless and Google Fi all follow this model. Cablevision has launched a service called Freewheel that does not include a fallback to cellular; the cable operator is promoting the service as a fit for those who live, work and play within range of Wi-Fi. Voice-over-Wi-Fi requires an IMS core, which is becoming much more common in carrier networks. Some of the same elements needed to launch VoLTE can be used to enable VoWi-Fi. Operators that have invested in VoLTE are in a good position to add VoWi-Fi, accord- ing to Aptilo Networks. ?If they have made a [VoLTE] decision, they have invested into the IMS infrastruc- ture, which is the nodes and the components needed to handle [VoLTE] capabilities. If you have taken that investment, it?s a very small investment to add on also [VoWi-Fi],? said Aptilo?s Mikkelsen. Cloud-based IMS gives carriers a way to offer VoWi-Fi without investing in an IMS core. Interop Technologies said it has seen strong interest in its hosted IMS solu- tion from regional operators. ?An IMS core is a very expensive and complicated thing to implement, even for the largest of the carriers,? said Interop?s Zitnik. ?By removing some of the com- plexities and obfuscating the complex- ity of the solution, Interop can enable its customers to move quickly down that path.? Interop?s solution is integrated with the operator network for billing and for 2G/3G fallback. Authentication is another major issue for operators that are integrating VoWi- Fi with cellular service. VoWi-Fi typically requires EAP-SIM authentication for the IPsec tunnels that connect devices to the mobile core when the Wi-Fi access points are not carrier-operated. At this time only a handful of smartphones support this. Mo- torola is the maker of several of the Android phones that are currently supporting VoWi- Fi, including the Moto G, the Moto X and Google?s Nexus 6. ?Motorola has been a great partner for us from the beginning,? said Republic Wire- less? Schniepp. ?We have worked with them to make the necessary changes to the ROM level of Android that enables fine tuning of call quality over Wi-Fi and our native call- ing experience. We love working with Mo- torola because their phones deliver tons of value at every price point, and they rely on a ?pure Android? approach which fits our approach well.? ?If they have made a [VoLTE] decision ? it?s a very small investment to add on also [VoWi-Fi],? Paul Mikkelsen, CEO, Aptilo Networks. ?An IMS core is a very expensive and complicated thing to imple- ment, even for the largest of the carriers,? Steve Zitnik, CTO, Interop Technologies. 14 Get off of my cloud Wi-Fi network operators bristle at the emergence of LTE-U For operators, LTE-U could represent a densification strategy that falls squarely within the realm of services for which car- riers can bill their customers. But today?s LTE smartphones will not support LTE in the 5 GHz band. ?Everybody has Wi-Fi on their devices now. Nobody has LTE-U,? said Devices- cape?s Gordon. ?If you?re a venue today why would you deploy LTE-U as opposed to Wi-Fi?? Mobile operators may have their work cut out for them if they want to sell venues and device makers on LTE-U. But the payoff could be significant, and LTE-U could help operators maximize the value of their most precious resource. ?LTE also is inherently spectrally more efficient. For the same amount of spectrum, it can deliver two-times more capacity than Wi-Fi,? said Puneet Sethi, director of product management at Qualcomm Atheros. Qualcomm, Ericsson and Verizon are all contributing to work on LTE in unlicensed spectrum. Qualcomm, the world?s leading maker of LTE modems, is also a top developer of Wi-Fi chipsets. The chipmaker says that the two tech- nologies complement one another. ?[LTE-U] is a better neighbor to Wi-Fi than Wi-Fi is to itself,? said Sethi. ?If you have two Wi-Fi nodes right next to each other and you replace one of them with LTE un- licensed, not only would you see the gains from the LTE unlicensed node, but also you will see the improvement on the neighbor- ing Wi-Fi?s performance.? Sethi spoke with Monica Paolini as part of her recent report: ?LTE unlicensed and Wi-Fi: Moving beyond coexistence.? One of the themes expressed by the executives in- terviewed was a resistance to government regulation of LTE-U. ?That?s something that everybody I work with on both the LTE side and the Wi-Fi side wants to avoid, even though they?re in positions to possibly have a good argument,? said InterDigital?s Mill- er. ?The regulators are the court of last resort, and we want to try to avoid that as much as possible.? In May, the Federal Communications Commission formally asked industry par- ticipants to share information on current trends in LTE-U and LAA technology. ?Listen before talk? is one of the key pro- tocols that Wi-Fi network operators are pushing for with respect to LTE-U. Wi-Fi radios are not scheduled the way LTE radios are, but they do ?listen? for other radios on the frequency before ?talking? themselves. Wi-Fi access point makers would like to see LTE-U small cells fol- low the same procedure. Listen-before-talk is mandated in Eu- rope for LTE-U, but not in the United States. Still, many expect it to be adopted by the industry whether or not the FCC gets involved. T-Mobile US has stated pub- licly that members of its team expect lis- ten-before-talk to be part of LTE-U in the United States. T-Mobile US has been a vocal propo- nent of both WI-Fi offload and LTE in un- licensed spectrum. The carrier has said that it is committed to Wi-Fi and that it does not intend to replace Wi-Fi offload with LTE-U. Instead, it sees LTE-U as a supplement to Wi-Fi offload and LTE in licensed spectrum. Come together, right now Combining Wi-Fi and cellular Indoors, cellular and Wi-Fi solutions are starting to converge. Users do not always distinguish between the two and F E A T U R E R E P O R T ?If you?re a venue today, why would you deploy LTE-U as opposed to Wi-Fi?? John Gordon, Devicescape. LTE in unlicensed spectrum 15 some IT managers are starting to think in the same way. ?The expectation that consumers have now basically means that you?ve got to think through a Wi-Fi strategy and a mo- bility strategy pretty much in parallel,? said CommScope?s Philip Sorrells, VP of strategic marketing. The software that network engineers use to build and deploy many in-building wireless networks is evolving to encom- pass Wi-Fi. IBwave has updated its net- work design software program to enable Wi-Fi and cellular indoor designs to be performed in a single tool. The company sees this release as a first step toward ad- dressing the carrier-grade Wi-Fi network design market. ?Five years ago, Wi-Fi technology was pretty basic, but with all the new protocol releases it is much closer to LTE today,? says Mario Bouchard, IBwave?s CEO. For venues, combining the two tech- nologies can create the opportunity to combine user profile information from the LTE network with location-based informa- tion from Wi-Fi. ?You know much more about your sub- scribers if you can put Wi-Fi and LTE to- gether,? said Paolini. ?The service is much more powerful because you tend to have a higher density of Wi-Fi but more consistent coverage with LTE.? Vendors are starting to bring Wi-Fi and LTE to market together. Cisco has an- nounced a partnership with SpiderCloud Wireless, whereby the world?s leading vendor of Wi-Fi access points will also market SpiderCloud?s dual-band small cells. Ruckus Wireless has created a simi- lar partnership with small cell vendor Alcatel-Lucent. Alcatel-Lucent and Ruckus Wireless have also partnered to trial LTE Wi-Fi link ag- gregation in partnership with Qualcomm. LWA moves the Wi-Fi uplink to 3G or 4G cellular networks. Alcatel-Lucent VP of small cells Mike Schabel said that moving the uplink improved the range of existing Wi-Fi access points by up to 300%, and led to a 50-times improvement in uplink per- formance at the edge of the network. He added that downlink speeds improved by up to 30% when the downlink and uplink were separated. In LWA, network software updates are used to blend the Wi-Fi and cellular access networks into a unified network. A small cell network is integrated with an exist- ing Wi-Fi network via software, and then devices that already have both cellular and Wi-Fi chips are updated with software to leverage the new network capabilities. ?The industry debates the merits of voice/data over Wi-Fi vs. voice/data over LTE,? said Schabel. ?From a consumer perspective, it should simply be voice/ data over wireless.?. Conclusion Carrier-driven Wi-Fi offload strategies can be effective even if the carrier does not own or operate a Wi-Fi network. Net- work visibility, analytics and effective policy can create offload solutions that boost network capacity and improve user experiences. The term carrier-grade Wi-Fi is used in many contexts, but is defined as secure, high-speed Wi-Fi that is integrated with the mobile core. Seamless integration is de- fined by 3GPP for LTE, but not for 3G. Car- riers are using secure tunnels to evolved packet data gateways to authenticate de- vices to hot spots that are not directly inte- grated into the carrier?s network. Some wireless carriers are exploring ways to charge users for minutes used on carrier- owned and operated Wi-Fi. Others are look- ing at ways to monetize the data generated by Wi-Fi networks. In tandem with Wi-Fi offload, some operators are exploring LTE in unlicensed spectrum. Currently there are no user devices on the market that support LTE-U. Qualcomm, which has taken a leading role in promoting LTE-U, has also developed a solution that combines Wi-Fi and cellular by using cellular for uplink and Wi-Fi for downlink. Solutions that combine Wi-Fi and cellu- lar may ultimately serve users and opera- tors best. LTE offers a continuous mobile connection, while Wi-Fi supports high- bandwidth activities in densely populated areas. Vendors and manufacturers are real- izing this, and are partnering on technical solutions and go-to-market strategies. The months ahead are expected to bring more cooperation and collaboration between cellular and Wi-Fi.
