Wi-Fi offloading is a powerful and effective tool that answers a variety of needs and delivers very tangible benefits for all users in the chain. As mobile users use increasingly more smart devices and access more rich content over mobile networks traffic over these networks is always growing.
Operators can reduce network and signaling congestion on their mobile broadband networks by offloading mobile IP data traffic while maintaining connections to their customers. This in turn frees up bandwidth for other mobile users. Further, operators can manage growing demand while keeping costs under control, while users can enjoy quality services regardless of their location and choice of network. And poor local call reception can be substituted by connecting via wired services.
B2B Partnerships represent an important source of potential revenue and reach, which extends to hotels, public venues, events, hospitality, retail, banks, transportation and more. Operators can take good advantage of schemes that bundle free public Wi-Fi access, monetize Wi-Fi access, and advertise & monetize via Captive portal, which allows operators to take full advantage of direct communication with their customers.
The hexAAA integrated captive portal solution provides full UAM authentication support, whereby users can be identified by an SMS sent to their device, and multiple devices can share the same registration. The status portal monitors key information like current status, logouts, change of service and similar.
