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.

À propos de la Wireless Broadband Alliance

Fondée en 2003, la Wireless Broadband Alliance (WBA) a pour objectif de garantir une expérience utilisateur exceptionnelle à travers le déploiement mondial d'une connectivité Wi-Fi de nouvelle génération. Pour concrétiser ce projet, la WBA soutient actuellement différentes initiatives dans l'écosystème Wi-Fi et notamment des essais de points d'accès Next Generation Hotspot (NGH), l'itinérance Wi-Fi et son initiative Interoperability Compliance Program (ICP). Aujourd'hui, les adhérents comptent notamment de grands opérateurs fixes tels que BT, Comcast et Time Warner Cable, 7 des 10 plus grands groupes d'opérateurs mobiles (par recettes) et d'éminentes sociétés technologiques telles que Cisco, Google et Intel. Les opérateurs membres de la WBA desservent collectivement plus d'un milliard d'abonnés et gèrent plus de 5 millions de points d'accès sans fil à travers le monde.

Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever. However, in fact, companies today are already using IoT data both to optimize their operational technology and to improve the experience of customer interactions in novel ways. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, shared examples from a wide range of industries – including en...
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...
