Pyramid Research Market Report Abstract

WLAN-Cellular Convergence: The Carrier Business Case for WLAN, UMA and VoWLAN
Pricing: US$2,490 Single user license, PDF




In the last two years,Wi-Fi technology has matured.The cost of infrastructure and devices has fallen, its security has improved (at least technologically), and third-party solutions have been introduced to support on-network Wi-Fi roaming and seamless call handover between wireless local area network (WLAN) and cellular.

Mobile operators took advantage of some of the new Wi-Fi capabilities, using the technology to support delivery of mobile data bundles, but they now face a new challenge:“Mobilizing” WLAN and enabling Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) on WLAN networks seems to be giving fixed carriers and mobile virtual network operators (MVNOs) a chance to get some of their voice business back from mobile carriers.This raises questions about the extent of danger to the traditional mobile operator business, as well as the nature of the WLAN technology in the future. In this report, we ask — and provide answers to — the following questions:
  • Where does WLAN stand today?
  • Is the nomadic WLAN business model still viable?
  • What are the benefits of WLAN-cellular bundling for mobile carriers?
  • Can WLAN co-exist with 3G?
  • Is the introduction of voice over WLAN (VoWLAN) inevitable?
  • When will VoWLAN be ready?
  • What will be the adoption and revenue of UMA and VoWLAN solutions?
  • How can mobile carriers respond to the introduction of VoWLAN?

This report helps you to:

  • Maximize revenues from enterprise and consumer WLANcellular convergent services
  • Attack the segment better and faster than your competition
  • Evaluate the impact of WLAN-Cellular convergence on revenues, subscriber acquisition and retention
  • Understand drivers behind WLAN/VoWLAN and UMA adoption
  • Identify best practices from carrier experience

This report includes:

  • 22 Carrier and Market Case Studies
