Support for Mobile Data Offload
Mobile Data Offload through Wi-Fi is becoming the most preferred solution for alleviating clogged networks. As soon as any mobile subscriber enters the Wi-Fi Zone, the operator offloads to Wi-Fi network thus, providing seamless connectivity and enhanced user experience.

Elitecore Wi-Fi offering provides quantifiable business value to any operator who wants to adopt Wi-Fi for mobile data offload to deal with any/all of these challenges:
  • Declining voice revenues and increasing need to monetize data services
  • Enabling network optimization with local and packet core break out support
  • The need to alleviate network congestion and reduce connected costs by offloading mobile data traffic from 3G-LTE to Wi-Fi hotspots
  • Ensuring a seamless user experience regardless of access network, or device
  • Retaining high value subscribers by offering them the desired Quality of Service across multiple personal devices.
  • Enabled for Mobile devices
  • EAP SIM and EAP AKA-based
    authentication
  • Enabled for Non-SIM Devices
  • Captive portal, EAP TLS, EAP
    TTLS-based authentication
  • One time password (OTP)
    based authentication
  • OTP fed manually for
    verifying credentials.
 
 

Elitecore Wi-Fi SMP enables operators to tap new revenue opportunities with rapid and cost effective deployments through  next generation offerings such as Intelligent offload for Intelligent selection and decision making between heterogeneous networks as to when to offload users onto Wi-Fi with smooth handover and what policies to implement. It provides automatic access and seamless mobility with Enhanced Easy Connect Mobile App, Hotspot 2.0 and ANDSF support to dynamically discover optimal non-3GPP access networks and enforce the user policies. Wi-Fi SMP with ANDSF facilitates policy-on-device solutions for selecting the best network based on cost, performance and other policy-driven features for proper bandwidth utilization.

 

Evolved 3GPP AAA extends supports for LTE - Wi-Fi interworking withWx interfacerequired for HSS authentication, SWa interface for EAP authentication with HSS. It is capable to support SWm – for additional Authentication parameters based on subscriber profile, authorization information update, ePDG initiated session termination and S2b interface support towards PGW over GTP or PMIPv6 tunnelling. It also provides support for S6b interface between 3GPP evolved AAA and P-GW for tunnelling authentication thus enabling carrier grade network performance.

 

Elitecore Wi-Fi SMP provides Location based offerings as well as also enables rich digital advertisement support with capabilities to offer profile & location specific personalized Advertisement display. It also offers an innovative Wi-Fi monetization Framework comprising Smart Connectivity, Location Based Services, Subscriber Analytics and Revenue Generator to launch innovative business cases ensuring faster time-to-market and better TCO.

 
 
Elitecore Wi-Fi Service Management Platform is ready to support Hotspot 2.0 which is PasspointTM certified , an approach introduced by Wi-Fi Alliance for public access Wi-Fi to provide secure and ANDSF function (Access Network Delivery Selection Function) of Wi-Fi from a list of Wi-Fi networks available for the client devices. It enables EAP-SIM/EAP AKA SIM-based authentication or TLS/TTLS clients (authentication as secure and seamless as 3G/4G) along with Wi-Fi roaming capabilities. Hotspot 2.0 complies with 3GPP standard, which provides better bandwidth and seamless experience to alleviate mobile carrier traffic overheads.
