Wi-Fi is everywhere; in our homes, in our work places, on the streets, in the tube stations, in the airport. Analyst predictions are showing that about 80% of all mobile and voice data traffic will be Wi-Fi based in the near future. At the same time, telecommunications and cloud providers are struggling to find new revenue streams to compete with Over the Top (OTT) providers. In this direction, they are looking to create innovative telecom and cloud services and not just remain a dump pipe.

Meanwhile, designing and managing networks has become more innovative over the past few years with the aid of Software Defined Networking (SDN). Moreover, thanks to Network Function Virtualization (NFV) the operators are able to automate their networks while avoiding "vendor lock-in".

Intracom Telecom's solution unifies heterogeneous Wi-Fi Access Points, providing a centralized network management and unified services delivery engine. The providers benefit from the solution's carrier grade virtualization, by effortlessly isolating service offerings & network slices, as if they were running on completely separate hardware, while service function chaining is just a point and click configuration, offering unprecedented flexibility in creating and marketing advanced connectivity services in minimal time-to-market.

Moreover, Intracom Telecom has implemented an extensive Out-of-the-Box network services library (incl. DHCP, VoIP, Firewall, Web-Portal, Gateway, AAA Radius, NAT, DNS, Ad-Insertion, etc.) allowing Service Providers to readily offer new services in minimal time-to-market, while new 3rd party network service functions can effortlessly be integrated when needed. Finally, Quality of Service (QoS) can be applied based on different SSIDs (Class of Service CoS), or based to applications.

Intracom Telecom's Wi-Fi Service Innovation Platform is ideal for Service Providers, municipalities, schools, malls, enterprises, sport stadiums, airports and other similar cases as it is able to configure thousands of multi-vendor Wi-Fi Access Points from a single central point, powering a vast number of services. By using a point-and-click Graphical User Interface (GUI), the administrator can create different SSIDs providing separated and isolated set of services in each network. Finally, the operator can provide innovative services at minimum time-to market with minimum capital and operational expenditures (CapEx and OpEx).

Wi-Fi roaming

wifio™ supports Wi-Fi roaming even in a multivendor environment. A Wi-Fi infrastructure owner can use wifio so his/her end-user is able to roam between Wi-Fi networks using a secure way (user name & password) or seamlessly without the need to re authenticate each time it roams.
