About the seminar:

Wi-Fi Calling service allows voice and messaging services over any Wi-Fi network. Next generation Wi-Fi Calling, with native support in modern smartphones, provides seamless transfer of calls between LTE and Wi-Fi networks. Wi-Fi Calling has become a powerful customer retention tool wherever there are coverage gaps or unfriendly roaming conditions.

In this session you will learn more about the benefits of next-generation Wi-Fi Calling and the critical components needed to deploy such a service. IMS is the foundation of next-generation Wi-Fi Calling. Another crucial component is the 3GPP AAA Server that authenticates and authorizes users and sets policies for the Wi-Fi Calling service. However, is it really enough to rely on a standard AAA function to deal with the complexity of an operator’s existing deployment?

Aptilo Networks, the leader in Wi-Fi service management, will share their experience in what it takes to get it all to work in real-world deployments.

Topics that will be discussed include:

  • Why should operators care about Wi-Fi?
  • What is next-generation Wi-Fi Calling?
  • What are the benefits of Wi-Fi Calling for mobile operators and their subscribers?
  • What about policies distributed over multiple sources?
  • What about non-SIM devices?
  • What about QoS in the Wi-Fi Network?
  • Turnkey solution or best-of-breed?
  • Call flows in next-generation Wi-Fi Calling
