Sterlite Technologies’ telecom software division, Elitecore, has announced its next generation of Wi-Fi solutions at MWC17, including enterprise Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi global roaming, Wi-Fi calling and middleware for carriers and enterprises.
The enterprise Wi-Fi solution enables service providers to leverage Wi-Fi platforms and offer customized and personalized services to enterprise customers in various segments.
The Wi-Fi global roaming solution enables operators to offer seamless national and international Wi-Fi roaming to their EAP-SIM and non-EAP-SIM subscribers, iPass/Boingo Wi-Fi users. It supports multiple authentication techniques and Wi-Fi roaming standards including WRIX, WiSPr and Hotspot 2.0 Passpoint.
The Wi-Fi calling solution enables operators to overcome the challenges of declining voice revenue, poor indoor coverage, congested cellular spectrum, infrastructure capex, etc, by offering voice-over-Wi-Fi services. The solution offers enhanced 3GPP AAA capabilities of authenticating the user through secured IPSec tunneling via a 3GPP-enabled SWm interface and enforcing relevant policies for Wi-Fi calling.
The middleware solution enables operators to gain an edge over competition by adding pre-integrated middleware capable of handling and intelligently managing high volume of requests in dynamic networks.
Along with these solutions, Sterlite Tech-Elitecore’s service management platform (SMP) has expanded its Carrier Wi-Fi and monetization business case portfolio by integrating with multiple OEMs partners for cloud-based WLAN infrastructure, an advanced location computation appliance, and a loyalty program partner retail management platform.
“With operators and enterprises increasingly focusing on Wi-Fi to deliver unique offerings, enhance customer experience and strengthen revenue potential, the Sterlite Tech-Elitecore SMP supports business-model evolution by launching innovative Wi-Fi solutions in the market, as well as expanding its scope by collaborating with OEMs and partners for productive integration to market,” said Akshat Joshi, VP of Wi-Fi Business at Sterlite Tech-Elitecore.
