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.

"Service providers are scrambling to remain profitable and keep up with the exponential growth in mobile data traffic, which is expected to grow twelve-fold by 2018. Service providers are deploying Small Cell and carrier-grade Wi-Fi networks to reduce their cost-per-megabit to deliver mobile data and enable new revenue streams. The GENBAND Wireless Access Gateway allows service providers to cost-effectively enhance the user experience through improved coverage, faster data speeds and seamless roaming through indoor or outdoor Small Cell and Carrier Wi-Fi deployments.”
