Information for Presenters
Data offload from cellular to
Wi-Fi network is playing an increasingly important role
in addressing escalating data demand as mobile broadband
becomes ever more popular. So far, Wi-Fi offload has
been handled in a fairly simplistic fashion. Technical
developments, however, will offer far more seamless
options that provide both a better user experience, and
greater options for operators to manage both capacity
and their services.
This workshop will examine the opportunities, issues,
and evolving architectures. Items under consideration
for this meeting include:
- Different architectures for
- Standards by which LTE supports
- The role of Wi-Fi in future
- IEEE 802.11u.
- Hotspot 2.0.
- Evolution of 3GPP standards to
- Client-side connection
- 3GPP IP Flow Mobility and
Seamless Offload (IFOM).
Note that presenters and
many of the attendees, are world leading technologists on
the subject material. We allocate sufficient time for
discussion that attendees can ask questions of greatest
interest. Moreover, the workshops allow informal
networking during breaks where attendees can exchange
