Wi-Fi Standards are evolving with Carrier Grade Wi-Fi deployment steadily picking up. Evolution of existing services and proliferation of new services is causing the industry to emphasize on the quality of experience to the end user. Also, Operators would like to offer differentiated services over a Carrier Wi-Fi network with guaranteed Quality of Service (QoS). The traditional 3GPP style of imperative QoS model unfortunately does not work for WLAN Access technology due to federated deployment architecture.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Target Audience

Target Audience includes WBA members, Device vendors, device service provider, Wi-Fi advocates, industry analysts, Wi-Fi operators, Cellular Operators, networking equipment providers.

Business objectives

  • Improve service experience for of customers using Wi-Fi networks

  • Remove barriers to service providers to invest in Wi-Fi and NGH

Target Outcomes

A set of deployment guidelines will be defined including standards, protocols and metrics which will be regarded as the one standard for QoS resulting in wide adoption by the industry, such as:

  • Networking monitoring

  • Service flow prioritization

  • Key business drivers

  • QoS Metrics Service Offering

  • QoS Requestor Layer

  • QoS API Specification Layer

  • QoS Provider Layer
