Openet and Smith Micro Show Intelligent Wi-Fi Offload Interoperability

Openet, working with Smith Micro Software (see "Smith Micro Helps MNOs with Smarter Offloading" - here), announced "completion of successful interoperability tests leveraging standards-based methods to deliver intelligent Wi-Fi offload and traffic optimization for heterogeneous networks .. The interoperability test utilized Smith Micro’s NetWise™ I/O Toolkit and centered on Openet’s Access Network Discovery and Selection Function (ANDSF) server [see "Openet Acquires Routing Policy Technology" - here], a 3GPP and OMA standards-compliant component of Openet’s Interaction Gateway. The server interacts with on-device agents to dynamically coordinate network selection based on device, network, and subscriber contextual information. Network selection decisions can incorporate any information source; examples include the quality of Wi-Fi and radio network signal, or specifics from the subscriber’s service plan agreement.

Openet’s Interaction Gateway [see "Openet Extends Policy Enforcement to the Device; Reduces Signaling Congestion" - here] provides integration with operator policy and charging control systems as well as intercommunication through the S14 interface with handsets that support ANDSF to coordinate device policies. Openet’s capabilities extend ANDSF with additional policy and charging options, in the context of device usage, for discovery and intelligent network selection. The solution also provides analytics for network and device performance, assisting operators to better the quality of users’ experience".
