La Wireless Broadband Alliance (WBA) réunit les grands acteurs de l'industrie pour définir la technologie Carrier Wi-Fi

La Wireless Broadband Alliance (WBA), l'association industrielle dédiée à la promotion de l'expérience de la connectivité Wi-Fi de nouvelle génération, a dévoilé aujourd'hui une définition exhaustive de la technologie Carrier Wi-Fi, afin de promouvoir l'alignement de cette dernière avec ses contreparties cellulaires. La technologie Carrier Wi-Fi est perçue par les opérateurs comme une étape importante pour améliorer l'expérience utilisateur du Wi-Fi, puisqu'elle est de plus en plus fréquemment utilisée pour le délestage des réseaux cellulaires et la fourniture de nouveaux services. La WBA a identifié les exigences auxquelles doit satisfaire un réseau Carrier Wi-Fi pour proposer une expérience utilisateur homogène, des fonctionnalités de réseau bout-à-bout entièrement intégrées et une gestion de réseau avancée.

Le terme Carrier Wi-Fi est actuellement une expression à la mode dans l'industrie ; toutefois, elle ne comportait jusqu'à présent aucune signification universellement reconnue par les opérateurs, fournisseurs et organisations industrielles. Un nouvel ensemble de directives élaborées et publiées par la WBA aspire à fournir cette vision commune à l'ensemble de l'industrie en déterminant ce qui constitue la technologie Carrier Wi-Fi, en détaillant les exigences fonctionnelles des réseaux, en analysant les ressources actuellement disponibles et en abordant les travaux restant à accomplir.

La WBA a réuni près de 20 des plus grands opérateurs et fournisseurs du monde, qui ont contribué à définir une vision de la technologie Carrier Wi-Fi. Il s'agit d'Accuris Networks, AT&T, BSG Wireless, BSkyB, BT, CableLabs, China Mobile, Cisco, Comcast, Ericsson, Huawei, Intel Corporation, NTT DOCOMO, Orange, Qualcomm, Ruckus Wireless, SK Telecom, Time Warner Cable et Towerstream. La WBA a également lancé des consultations initiales avec de nombreuses organisations industrielles, telles que 3GPP, Broadband Forum, GSMA, NGMN et Wi-Fi Alliance®.

« Améliorer et optimiser l'expérience utilisateur, fournir les services souhaités et proposer une expérience utilisateur supérieure figure depuis toujours parmi les priorités essentielles de la WBA. En définissant la technologie Carrier Wi-Fi, l'industrie peut désormais collaborer pour poser les fondations nécessaires à la construction de réseaux Wi-Fi évolués, » déclare Shrikant Shenwai, directeur général de la WBA. « Ce travail contribuera à garantir que les consommateurs qui se connectent à un réseau Carrier Wi-Fi bénéficient d'une expérience utilisateur optimale, peu importe l'endroit et l'instant. »

« Il est essentiel d'atteindre une vision commune de l'avenir de la technologie Carrier Wi-Fi et des dispositions à adopter pour la rendre réelle, et nous sommes ravis d'être impliqués dans une initiative aussi importante, » déclare Philippe Lucas, vice-président de la division Normalisation et développement d'écosystèmes de France Télécom Orange, qui a dirigé cette initiative en collaboration avec Ruckus Wireless. « Ces directives reposent sur les contributions de l'ensemble de l'écosystème Wi-Fi, et nous sommes confiants d'avoir résolu les difficultés essentielles et posé les fondations du déploiement de ces réseaux. Ceci consolidera la réputation du Wi-Fi, qui s'est imposée comme l'une des options de connectivité les plus pratiques et accessibles pour les utilisateurs finaux. »

Les directives de la WBA concluent que la technologie Carrier Wi-Fi doit impérativement intégrer les fonctionnalités normalisées suivantes pour garantir l'évolution fiable des réseaux, conformément aux exigences de l'industrie :

  • Expérience utilisateur cohérente
  • Découverte et accès aux réseaux
  • Authentification et sécurité
  • Expérience de service
  • Réseau de bout-à-bout entièrement intégré
  • Architecture de réseau
  • Fourniture de services de bout-à-bout
  • Gestion de réseau
  • Qualité du réseau
  • Sécurité du réseau
  • Capacité de gestion du réseau

La WBA diffusera également le document aux autres organisations industrielles afin de recueillir leurs commentaires et de collaborer avec elles au développement de la technologie Carrier Wi-Fi et à l'évaluation des travaux potentiels restant à accomplir. Des versions mises à jour, incorporant les progrès réalisés par les organisations industrielles, devraient être publiées à l'avenir. Pour afficher le livre blanc actuel, veuillez consulter le site Web – http://www.wballiance.com/resource-center/white-papers/

La WBA animera une conférence intitulée Carrier Wi-Fi Summit, qui se déroulera dans le Hall 8.0, du 24 au 27 février, à l'occasion du forum Mobile World Congress 2014. Ce sommet spécialisé, d'une durée de quatre jours, réunira plus de 500 influenceurs essentiels issus de l'ensemble de l'écosystème sans fil pour discuter de l'avenir de la technologie Carrier Wi-Fi.
