Even as mobile broadband data is growing at 150% per annum, of which video alone would comprise 67% by
2015, the spectrum growth is presently only 6% at best places. There is a huge gap between consumer appetite for data and what operators can fulfill, notwithstanding the fact that top 13% smartphone users consume 78% of data traffic.
Considering that 60% mobile data is already being consumed indoors, Wi-Fi translates into a huge opportunity. The operator benefits from low investment & subscribers enjoy a better QoE, including for multimedia streaming videos.
Says Nikhil Jain, COO & Director, Elitecore Technologies, "Clearly, the Wi-Fi roadmap offers a win-win situation for operators as well as subscribers. Through our solution, we are helping operators overcome the integration challenge of their Mobile IT applications with Wi-Fi.
