A Carrier Wi-Fi has varied meanings. But in general we can understand Carrier Wi-Fi as a service for providing mobile subscribers a better user experience including easy access to the Wi-Fi network and better quality of service along with enabling the service provider to scale and manage a network of Wi-Fi access points with no specific limit.
The upgradation to H8 Carrier WiFi Solution will enable scalability, easier network management, carrier-grade security, wide area mobility, improved quality of experience and service 3GPP & 4G LTE Support, IPv6 Support and much more.
Increasing need for offloading solutions is caused by the exponential increase of Internet data traffic, especially the growing portion of traffic going through mobile networks.
With analysts’ claims that half of the mobile data traffic will be offloaded in future, there is a tremendous business opportunity for existing service providers to come up with innovative solutions. The solution to WiFi offload is not straightforward. Any new technology requires the introduction of new network components, new functionality and integration with existing systems for a seamless experience. WiFi offload brings with it a new set of challenges such as how to automatically and seamlessly connect WiFi and cellular domains, how to integrate a WiFi network with operator’s policy and charging systems, and so on.
Height8 has vast experience in delivering proven carrier-class Wi-Fi service management and policy control solutions to its clients globally and has a first-hand experience to overcome many such challenges. By offloading users from the 3G/4G network to Wi-Fi networks, mobile operators can add more capacity in an affordable and flexible way.
As stated by the Wi-Fi Alliance, the new IEEE 802.11u standard & SIM-based EAP-SIM/AKA authentication has become the foundation of the next generation hotspot – Hotspot 2.0.
The Wi-Fi network must support the 802.1x in order to deliver SIM based authentication i.e EAP/SIM-AKA authentication. This SIM-based authentication also adds another layer of security (requiring support for 802.1x), making the Wi-Fi network as secure as the 3G/4G network.

One incredibly important factor is access to the core network and delivery of OSS/BSS functionality in the backend. When it comes to smart connectivity, whether it’s in buildings or on city streets, it’s extremely important to have work flows that the service providers can support based on the execution of the work flow and the billing related to it. If smart city or smart building projects don’t have core OSS and BSS implemented, customers won’t be appropriately charged for the services they’re using and generating revenue leakage.
Elsewhere, the telco is vitally important when it comes to onboarding new customers of such services. The average portfolio of smart services provided by a telco would average out at roughly several thousand devices.
The telecommunications industry has been witnessing high device proliferation and it is only going to increase, perhaps at a much faster rate.
With a multi-technology, multi-purpose, and multi- vendor device mix, service providers need extensive manual intervention in managing network devices configurations. Height8 Solution enables Service Providers to effectively manage device configurations, activation, and assurance in addition to eliminating manual processes.
Since Digital Setu Project of Gujarat, H8 has started the journey with the vision of 100 smart cities and it supports the mission of Digital India.
H8's contribution for enabling a Smart City is in intelligent Wi-Fi System, IP Based Solution, Mobile App & Device Authentications. Having completed many smart cities projects successfully and having a couple more in process, our core experience will help in avoiding the pain areas prior to their occurrence along with speedy rollout of the implementation.
With increase in demand for best quality services at a low cost, it has become necessary for evaluating new revenue streams in this competitive sector.
Leverage existing Wi-Fi infrastructure by rolling out additional services through Wi-Fi monetization framework and hence generate new revenue opportunities is the way to go!
Height8 has introduced its new solution ‘Campaign Management’ for monetizing your Wi-Fi by capitalizing on your existing infrastructure.
With the ease of implementation from varied authentication methods integrated with different revenue generation techniques, monetization of Wi-Fi has never been so easy.
H8 Cloud Wi-Fi has been an receiving exceptionally great response since its launch. With implementations on the go, enabling Wi-Fi has never been easy.
WISPs, ISPs, CSPs and even SMEs have enabled H8 Cloud Wi-Fi for varied implementations like University, Airport, Hotel, Cafe/Restaurants, Exhibitions/Expos, Residential/Commercial Buildings, Public Places.
