Wi-Fi has become ubiquitous in nearly all personal mobile devices, including smartphones, tablets, cameras, and game consoles. Robust carrier-grade SP Wi-Fi networks have the ability to outperform 3G & 4G networks and are secure, and now next generation hotspots offer roaming that is as transparent as cellular roaming. As a result, Service Providers, MNO, MVNO & Cable Operators across the globe are looking for Wi-Fi offload solution.
This session will provide a view into Cisco's SP Wi-Fi offering, with an overview of current SP Wi-Fi deployments and Wi-Fi evolution trend. Highlighted will be how beachhead customers are rolling out iPhone/Android driven deployments using EAP-SIM for seamless authentication and how Proxy Mobile IPv6 (PMIPv6) will factor into providing session persistence with IP address mobility on the Cisco ASR 1000.
