WiFi Innovation at WIS Europe 2015

To some extent, this has led to a false debate – regarding competition between WiFi and cellular mobile data technologies. Indeed, there was tension within mobile operators some years ago regarding this apparent conflict (“the wicked stepmother” as one representative from a mobile operator told us in a recent interview).

The reality is completely different. As is now widely recognised, WiFi is a key enabler and complement to mobile technologies. There is no zero sum game, but rather a world of alternatives, which enable us to maximise our utility and capitalise on different modes of access to suit our convenience.

In this context, WiFi is becoming increasingly important as an enabler for mobile operators to provide extended and complementary connectivity. As a result the WiFi ecosystem is growing to accommodate classical mobile operators, as well as established providers of WiFi access services. Added to which we have a host of other stakeholders who see WiFi as part of the means to enable a growing range of other applications, such as for M2M and IoT devices.

WiFi is one of a range of tools that is available to deliver the connectivity we need to service both current and future applications. And, as we have discovered in our research and interviews, there’s a wealth of new use cases and value that will be unlocked from enhanced WiFi access solutions – and to ensure the user experience is maintained.

That’s why we’re delighted to be supporting the WiFi Innovation Summit series of events. The next takes place in Amsterdam from November 24th – 25th and we’ll be presenting as well as moderating several sessions. The event brings together representatives from key stakeholders from throughout the WiFi and mobile industries. We’re expecting to learn about new opportunities, hear the latest on unique research and uncover innovation from across the industry.

  • BT’s patronising stance on Open RAN really does no one any credit

    Apologies in advance to our many highly-valued international readers, but this post definitely needs a Union Jack running over it. We’ll start by telling you why, quoting the body that works on behalf of the Queen to protect our national cyber security:

  • Layer upon layer: why re-using existing infrastructure just makes so much fibre sense

    For thousands of years, and probably from not long after the end of the last Ice Age 12,000 years ago, a major track connected the Celts in the far South with their cousins in the North. By the time of the Roman Conquest, the British were still using this route; recognising its utility, legionnaires soon paved it and called it Ermine Street, using it to connect their capital, Londinium, with their far-off bases in Lincoln (Lindum Colonia) and York (Eboracum). Later, the English called it the Old North Road; and our A1 largely follows the same route. That’s continuity in infrastructure for you.

  • Italy’s trying to go back to the future to get universal broadband. We don’t think it’ll work

    One broadband operatore to rule them all? Rome’s attempt to build a national broadband service in a day. Reports on possible Italian state intervention raises less than comfortable memories of Blunders down Under and under-priced manifesto offers.
