Mobile Providers Feel the Heat

With rapid cable Wi-Fi deployments in 2014 and continuing into 2015, mobile carriers will feel increasing pressure to expand their own Wi-Fi footprint. Mobile operators will look to Wi-Fi deployments to provide much-needed data offload and enable inter-provider roaming.

According to the Wi-Fi Alliance®, a global non-profit industry association, 2014 was a monumental year for Wi-Fi -- the wireless technology celebrated 15 years, carried more than 42 percent of the world's mobile data traffic and 90 percent of the world's tablet traffic, and connected users to more than 47 million public hotspots worldwide. Wi-Fi is on a path to provide seamless Wi-Fi virtually everywhere, and is pushing the limits of what wireless technology has traditionally offered.

With input from representatives from our member companies, Wi-Fi Alliance® has developed a list of 15 predictions for the coming year that prove Wi-Fi has evolved into much more than a mode of connectivity to the Internet.
