Danish Khan report to Light Reading that Sandeep Girotra [pictured], India Head, Nokia Solutions and Networks said in a press conference that NSN "signed up with two top India telcos to provide them with WiFi network integration and access point and core setup for seamless WiFi offload .. The key trigger for telcos to opt for Wi-Fi offload is spectrum. In WCDMA for example, each operator has 5 MHz, which is a narrow chunk of spectrum. So, when the capacity hits in hotspots, operators need to offload from the WCDMA to the lower layer of Wi-Fi .. We are in process of rolling out Wi-Fi offloading solutions"
"Girotra says that NSN works with 9 telecom players--Bharti Airtel, Vodafone India, Idea Cellular, TTSL, Aircel, Uninor, BSNL, Videocon and Railways in the country".
