    Integrating Wi-Fi RANs into the Mobile Packet Core

    There has been a great deal of interest of late in using Wi-Fi to offload traffic from heavily congested mobile networks. Early deployments consisted of building a parallel Wi-Fi offload network that takes traffic directly to the Internet. The mobile network operator would implement a proprietary client of some kind...

    Dealing with Density: The Move to Small-Cell Architectures

    The expansion and evolution of cellular networks over the past decades has been astounding. Networks initially designed for voice traffic have grown to accommodate increasingly high data-traffic loads. This growth has long relied on a network of macro cells to provide a good balance of wireless coverage and capacity. The...

    Radios, Antennas and Other Wi-Fi Essentials

    Wi-Fi (802.11) is an access technology that connects IP devices to a wired network using wireless radios. The client devices have radios (wireless adapters) that connect to Access Point (AP) radios. These radios transmit over unlicensed radio spectrum; either the 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz bands. So how does an...

    WLAN Security: Simplifying without Compromising

    Fundamentally there is a converse relationship between security and convenience - and in the case of WLAN security, convenience translates into IT management resources in addition to end user time and effort. Finding a balance between the right level of security for size and type of organization is critical for...

    Characterizing Wireless Network Performance

    As expensive and inconvenient as wires may be, when it comes to transmitting data, they are generally quite reliable. Once working, they tend to stay working, offering the same steady performance level until someone cuts them, unplugs them or digs them up. However, modulated electromagnetic waves propagating in free-space (aka...

    Compelling Economics for Wi-Fi Broadband Access

    802.11n-based Wireless Broadband Access (WBA) is the new Metro Wi-Fi. Only this time, the business drives the network build out, not the other way around. Early metro Wi-Fi networks suffered from a top-down deployment model. Wireless ISPs attempted to build Wi-Fi WANs across entire cities or counties to offer fixed...
