With the ever growing adoption of smart mobile devices, the demand for Wi-Fi access to stay connected to the internet regardless of the location (airport, stadium, public events, hotels or travel etc.) is also increasing. Although networks like 3G and 4G are now available at most of the countries, it is interesting to know Wi-Fi still remains as the preferred network. There are several reasons why people choose Wi-Fi over other networks: cost, device compatibility, network stability and speed. In fact, at some of the public places like hotels, pubs, city centres, stadiums, airports, etc. users can enjoy free Wi-Fi also. Having used the speed and coverage on Wi-Fi, the same freedom and flexibility is expected by users at all locations. With so many reasons, it will be fair to say that Wi-Fi has grown to be one of the most dependable technologies among the enterprise segments as well as other business environments.
Innovative Business Model for Telecom Operators
Almost all the businesses have deployed or are deploying wireless infrastructure to enable their customers to connect seamlessly to a network. Operators on the other hand are providing high cost bandwidth at cheaper rates to stay ahead in the competitive market. In addition, operators are also exploring newer options to enhance their business reach, adapt newer business models and generate more revenue. The current market is observing complete transformation where telecom operators as ‘Service Provisioners’ are turning into Service Enablers.
Pre-Integrated Platform for Enabling Enterprise Businesses to Cater Seamless Wi-Fi Access
The transition from service provisioning to enablers can be a challenging task because there are several angles which needs to be taken into consideration like organizational structure, business culture, business requirements, business models and strategies and much more. For operators to offer end-to-end service enablement across multiple locations of the enterprise, telecom operators need a comprehensive platform which provides pre-integrated modular components like authentication mechanism, subscriber management, payments, business applications integration, business and network intelligence, etc. Existing customer base at the enterprise venues like shopping malls, airports, public stadiums, city centres, government buildings, etc. are primary segments where telecom operators can enable their services to offer Enterprise Wi-Fi services. In addition to in-house network subscriber base, operators have a greater platform to connect enterprise customers and enable them to high quality Wi-Fi services.
