Cisco CEO: "Wi-Fi will eventually carry 80 to 90% of the growth of cellular networks"

Mike Dano brings to FierceBroadbandWireless some predictions made by Cisco's CEO, John Chambers (pictured), during his interview at AllThingsD's D11 conference:
  • "Transport will become free. … Architectures will change. With intelligence throughout the network, the network will become the platform of the future
  • improvements in the designs of wireless networks will allow operators to slowly bring down the cost of mobile data services, as they have been able to do with voice calling
  • service provider Wi-Fi products ..  use unlicensed spectrum to offload data. Wi-Fi will eventually carry 80 to 90 percent of the growth of cellular networks"
I cant avoid mentioning my recent post - "Israel: MNOs won’t Offload to Wi-Fi" (here) .. 

See "Cisco CEO: Cellular data transport 'will become free'" - here.


  1. So why to pay so much money on Ubiquisys and Intucell if it is all WiFi - is he not connected to Cisco strategic M&A decisions done by his team?

  2. he should get his reg team to quit sucking up to CTIA spectrum goals....more open spectrum right?
