Carrier WiFi is a specific configuration that is provided by carriers to their customer base, which can be owned and operated directly or indirectly by the Communication Service Provider (CSP). WiFi is a key focus for mobile network operators as increasingly more CSPs are considering it as a cost effective solution for tackling skyrocketing consumer data demand, offering operators new revenue opportunities and cable carrier opportunities to expand their fixed broadband market appeal.
With data offload, Carrier WiFi solutions enable CSP subscribers to automatically identify and join WiFi networks. End-users are not required to complete a cumbersome manual login process. Managed hotspots automatically configure industry-standard security protection without user intervention.
