Even as four major U.S. MSOs team with Verizon Wireless to deliver advanced wireless broadband services, cable operators are rolling out ambitious plans to offer Wi-Fi service throughout the U.S. and Canada. Most major North American MSOs are now deploying thousands of Wi-Fi hotspots in their service footprints. At the same time, mobile providers are exploring ways to use Wi-Fi networks to offload data from their overburdened cellular networks. The limited availability of 3G/4G bandwidth is one prime reason why mobile carriers are moving to Wi-Fi to provide their customers with uninterrupted service. In this webinar, we will examine why service providers and cable operators are so bullish on Wi-Fi, what benefits they hope to gain, which areas they’re targeting and what kinds of challenges they face.
