During this webinar, Maravedis-Rethink, in collaboration with the Wireless Broadband Alliance will presented the key findings of the latest public WiFi market update, including a comprehensive global survey of the ecosystem and key industry trends.
For the study, Maravedis-Rethink and the WBA carried out a detail survey covering all kinds of WiFi service providers — wireless, broadband, cable and pure-play — about their plans for Carrier Wi-Fi. This has helped create a full picture of how providers are using public WiFi to improve their business models, and how they will support future standards like Next Generation Hotspot.
The survey was structured around the following key areas:
* Making NGH a commercial reality
* Globalizing Wi-Fi roaming
* Developing a Carrier Wi-Fi roadmap for the industry
* Carrier Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi offload strategies
In addition to key findings from this comprehensive study, Caroline Gabriel will discussed the drivers, challenges and prospects for this emerging industry while Ton Brand will present the latest achievements and initiatives of the WBA.
