Edgewater Wireless Systems Inc, a leading supplier of wireless local area network (WLAN) solutions, is very pleased to announce that it has successfully completed interoperability testing of WiFi3with the industry leading mobile data offload solution from Aptilo Networks which is based on their WiFi service management platform and SIM authentication server. Mobile data offload, one of the fastest growing market segments for WiFi solutions, can now be delivered with Edgewater Wireless’ industry leading WiFi3 multi-channel architecture which delivers significantly increased performance and flexibility to major carriers and service providers.

Mobile data traffic is growing at an unprecedented rate well beyond the capacity of today’s 3G networks. Many researchers from networking and financial sectors forecast that by 2014, an average mobile user will consume 7GB of traffic per month which is more than 5 times the average used by today’s consumer . This consumption is creating an enormous strain on the cellular infrastructure. The mobile operators and service providers are turning to WiFi as a primary solution to alleviate the crush of data driven predominantly by the emergence and proliferation of the smartphone.

Mobile data offloading is the most viable solution for operators to alleviate network congestion quickly while still meeting the capacity needs of their mobile broadband customers. Aptilo’s mobile data offloading solution makes offloading to WiFi seamless both for the subscriber and the mobile core. Combining Aptilo’s carrier-class WiFi service management solution - which is already in operation with over 90 leading worldwide and regional communications service providers, including Du, Eircom-Meteor, Telecom Malaysia, Telenor, TeliaSonera and Saudi Telecom - with Edgewater Wireless’ EAP3000 family of multi-channel access points opens the door for Edgewater Wireless to directly address and deliver product solutions into this large and rapidly growing market.
