Wireless Broadband Alliance vereinigt Branchen-Akteure zur Definition von Carrier Wi-Fi

Die Wireless Broadband Alliance (WBA), die Branchenvereinigung zur Förderung von WLAN-Netzen der nächsten Generation, hat heute eine umfassende Definition von Carrier Wi-Fi vorgestellt, um eine engere Abstimmung mit dem Mobilfunknetz weiter zu forcieren. Carrier Wi-Fi wird von den Betreibern als wichtiger Schritt gesehen, um das WLAN-Nutzererlebnis zu verbessern, da es zunehmend zur Entlastung der Mobilfunknetze und für die Bereitstellung neuer Dienste eingesetzt wird. Die WBA hat die Voraussetzungen definiert, die ein Carrier Wi-Fi-Netz benötigt, um ein konsistentes Nutzererlebnis zu gewährleisten, und darüber hinaus über voll integrierte, durchgängige Netzfunktionen zu verfügen sowie eine fortschrittliche Netzverwaltung zu ermöglichen

Carrier Wi-Fi ist derzeit in der Branche in aller Munde. Der Begriff ist jedoch unter Betreibern, Herstellern und Branchenverbänden nicht einheitlich definiert. Eine neue Reihe von Richtlinien, die von der WBA eingeführt und veröffentlicht wurden, soll der gesamten Branche eine einheitliche Vorstellung über Carrier Wi-Fi vermitteln, die Funktionsanforderungen des Netzes detailliert bestimmen, und den heutigen Stand der Dinge analysieren und erörtern, welche Aufgaben noch erledigt werden müssen.

Die WBA hat fast 20 der weltweit größten Betreiber und Hersteller zusammengebracht, um an einer Definition einer gemeinsamen Vorstellung von Carrier Wi-Fi zu arbeiten. Dazu zählen: 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 und Towerstream. Ferner hat die WBA erste Konsultationen mit zahlreichen Branchenverbänden wie 3GPP, Broadband Forum, GSMA, NGMN und der Wi-Fi Alliance® begonnen.

„Für die WBA war es stets vordringlich, das Nutzererlebnis zu verbessern und die gewünschten Dienste und optimalen Komfort für den Nutzer zu bieten. Durch die Definition von Carrier Wi-Fi kann die Branche nun gemeinsam die erforderlichen Grundlagen ausarbeiten, die für moderne WLAN-Netze benötigt werden“, sagte Shrikant Shenwai, CEO der WBA. „Diese Arbeit wird dazu beitragen, dass die Verbraucher, die Carrier WiFi einsetzen, an jedem Ort und zu jeder Zeit das bestmögliche Nutzererlebnis geboten bekommen.“

„Es ist äußerst wichtig, eine gemeinsame Zielvorstellung über die Zukunft von Carrier Wi-Fi und die entsprechenden Maßnahmen zu seiner Realisierung zu entwickeln, und wir freuen uns, an dieser bedeutenden Initiative mitzuwirken“, so Philippe Lucas, Orange Senior Vice President Standardization & Ecosystems Development, der diese Initiative gemeinsam mit Ruckus Wireless ins Leben gerufen hat. „In diese Richtlinien sind die Beiträge der WLAN-Branche eingeflossen und wir sind zuversichtlich, dass wir die wichtigsten Fragen thematisiert und die Grundlagen für die Einführung dieser Netze geschaffen haben. Dies wird den Ruf von WLAN zusätzlich unterstreichen, eine der bequemsten und zugänglichsten Verbindungsmöglichkeiten für den Endbenutzer zu sein.“

Gemäß WBA-Richtlinien sind die folgenden standardisierten Carrier-Wi-Fi-Funktionen erforderlich, um die Netze auf zuverlässige Weise an den Anforderungen der Branche auszurichten:

  • Durchgängiges Nutzererlebnis
  • Netzerkennung und -zugang
  • Authentifizierung und Sicherheit
  • Servicequalität
  • Vollständig integriertes End-to-End-Netz
  • Netzarchitektur
  • Nahtlose Dienstbereitstellung
  • Netzverwaltung
  • Netzqualität
  • Netzsicherheit
  • Verwaltbarkeit des Netzes

Die WBA wird das Dokument auch an andere Branchenverbände weiterleiten, um ihre Meinung einzuholen und zu erörtern, wie man die Entwicklung von Carrier Wi-Fi und die Arbeiten, die möglicherweise noch geleistet werden müssen, vorantreiben kann. Voraussichtlich werden zukünftig aktualisierte Versionen mit den Fortschritten, die die Branchenverbände erzielt haben, erscheinen. Das aktuelle Whitepaper ist abrufbar unter http://www.wballiance.com/resource-center/white-papers/

Die WBA wird auf dem Mobile World Congress 2014, der vom 24. bis 27. Februar stattfindet, in Halle 8.0 einen Carrier Wi-Fi Summit veranstalten. Die viertägige Veranstaltung wird eigens mehr als 500 Hauptakteure aus der gesamten WLAN-Branche zusammenbringen, um die Zukunft von Carrier Wi-Fi zu erörtern. Weitere Informationen, wie man sich an dem Summit beteiligen kann, oder um sich als Teilnehmer anzumelden, finden Sie unter http://www.wballiance.com/carrier-wi-fi-summit

The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example t...
The industrial software market has treated data with the mentality of “collect everything now, worry about how to use it later.” We now find ourselves buried in data, with the pervasive connectivity of the (Industrial) Internet of Things only piling on more numbers. There’s too much data and not enough information. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Bob Gates, Global Marketing Director, GE’s Intelligent Platforms business, to discuss how realizing the power of IoT, software developers are now focused on understanding how industrial data can create intelligence for industrial operations. Imagine ...
Cultural, regulatory, environmental, political and economic (CREPE) conditions over the past decade are creating cross-industry solution spaces that require processes and technologies from both the Internet of Things (IoT), and Data Management and Analytics (DMA). These solution spaces are evolving into Sensor Analytics Ecosystems (SAE) that represent significant new opportunities for organizations of all types. Public Utilities throughout the world, providing electricity, natural gas and water, are pursuing SmartGrid initiatives that represent one of the more mature examples of SAE. We have s...
There is no doubt that Big Data is here and getting bigger every day. Building a Big Data infrastructure today is no easy task. There are an enormous number of choices for database engines and technologies. To make things even more challenging, requirements are getting more sophisticated, and the standard paradigm of supporting historical analytics queries is often just one facet of what is needed. As Big Data growth continues, organizations are demanding real-time access to data, allowing immediate and actionable interpretation of events as they happen. Another aspect concerns how to deliver ...
Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
The Internet of Things will greatly expand the opportunities for data collection and new business models driven off of that data. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Esmeralda Swartz, CMO of MetraTech, discussed how for this to be effective you not only need to have infrastructure and operational models capable of utilizing this new phenomenon, but increasingly service providers will need to convince a skeptical public to participate. Get ready to show them the money!
The Industrial Internet revolution is now underway, enabled by connected machines and billions of devices that communicate and collaborate.

Wearable devices have come of age. The primary applications of wearables so far have been "the Quantified Self" or the tracking of one's fitness and health status. We propose the evolution of wearables into social and emotional communication devices. Our BE(tm) sensor uses light to visualize the skin conductance response. Our sensors are very inexpensive and can be massively distributed to audiences or groups of any size, in order to gauge reactions to performances, video, or any kind of presentation.
