Wi-Fi: Leveraging Unlicensed Spectrum to Offload Cellular Networks

  • July 29, 2014

Uday Parida

Product Manager, Wireless Division

Uday Parida is responsible for EXFO's QA-800 solutions which are designed to validate small cells, including Home eNodeBs (HeNB) and HeNB-Gateways (HeNB-GW). He brings to EXFO more than six years of experience in product management, during which time he was responsible for simulators that test different entities in the 3G and LTE network. Prior to this, he developed Linux Kernel modules and network-processor-based solutions as a software engineer for NetHawk Oyj. His professional experience has helped him develop a strong understanding of the challenges facing the development of high-performance solutions. Uday obtained a Master's Degree in Computer Applications from Utkal University, India.

The low cost and the use of unlicensed spectrum has made carrier-grade Wi-Fi of strategic importance to many mobile network operators (MNOs).

MNOs view it as a means to expand service coverage with very low CAPEX and OPEX. In this context, it is imperative to understand the various challenges of this integration and of ensuring optimal performance to deliver seamless mobility and enhanced quality of experience to subscribers.

This webinar explores:

  • Drivers of cellular Wi-Fi offload
  • Key aspects for successful integration
  • Identifying the best deployment strategy
  • Validation in the lab
