GENBAND, a leading developer of software-based real time communications solutions, Wednesday unveiled its next-generation Wireless Access Gateway solution, a key component of GENBAND’s new Simply Mobile solutions framework. The solution enables mobile operators to enhance new revenue-generating opportunities and improve customer communications experience.
The access agnostic platform supporting 2G/ 3G/ 4G small cells, untrusted public Wi-Fi, and trusted next-generation Wi-Fi hotspots
securely offers value-added services such as next-generation carrier Wi-Fi with Hotspot 2.0, enabling a seamless connectivity experience to Wi-Fi roamers. The solution also enables mobile communications service providers to significantly improve network coverage, capacity, and mobility between cellular and Wi-Fi networks.
According to Genband, the Wireless Access Gateway adds standards-based ePDG (Enhanced Packet Data Gateway) functionality for next-generation untrusted public Wi-Fi access and SaMOG (S2a Mobility over GTP Gateway) functionality for trusted Carrier Wi-Fi access, enabling MNOs, MVNOs, MSOs, and IPX providers to generate new revenue streams. GENBAND highlights that the solution has been extensively deployed globally with the Small Cell Security Gateway application, connecting to millions of residential, enterprise and outdoor small cells.
