Achieve perfect Wi-Fi/cellular chemistry with Wireless Unified Networks
Combining the best of Wi-Fi with cellular provides a better user experience across today’s existing network and user devices.
In this Light Reading webinar, we discuss blending Wi-Fi and LTE for improved download rates (2.5x), upload rates (55x), and range (2x).
The case for blending Wi-Fi and cellular
Learn how Wireless Unified Networks can enable users to simultaneously access Wi-Fi and cellular networks for a better quality of experience.
Wi-Fi boost: Use cellular to boost Wi-Fi performance
Wi-Fi boost combines the downlink of Wi-Fi with the uplink of cellular. And Wi-Fi boost with aggregation, as an option, adds the downlink of cellular to the mix.
Combine the best aspects of Wi-Fi and cellular so your customers can seamlessly and simultaneously draw on the strengths of both networks.
Capitalize on Wi-Fi’s high capacity and fast downlink speeds
- Get more consistent Wi-Fi performance
- Increase Wi-Fi download speed by 20–30% for a single user
- Double download speeds with Wi-Fi and LTE aggregation
- Increase Wi-Fi range by a factor of 2 or more
- Increase Wi-Fi downlink by 70% for multiple users
Take advantage of cellular’s fast uplink speeds and broad range
- Get 10x or more (55x in lab tests) increase in Wi-Fi uplink for the far user, compared to Wi-Fi alone
- Use LTE download on hot standby
- Use with LTE or W-CDMA
- Reduce cost by reusing existing Wi-Fi routers, handsets, and cellular access points
How Wi-Fi boost benefits your customers
Simultaneous access to cellular and Wi-Fi transforms the wireless customer experience. Wi-Fi boost automatically gives customers the best possible upload and download performance. And it allows them to keep using their existing handsets and Wi-Fi routers.
How Wi-Fi boost benefits you
Wi-Fi boost gives you a quick and inexpensive way to enhance the customer experience. It works with existing Wi-Fi networks, mobile devices, and cellular access points. And that means you can improve performance without having to pay for new routers, handsets, or network equipment.
Where to use Wi-Fi boost
Deploy Wi-Fi boost anywhere Wi-Fi and cellular coexist.
To get the most from Wi-Fi boost, you need a strong cellular signal and Wi-Fi access points that can automatically authenticate users. These conditions are most common in homes and offices. But Wi-Fi boost can work anywhere, including metro and macro environments. If you have Wi-Fi and a licensed cellular signal that can carry uplink traffic, you’re ready for Wi-Fi boost.
Cellular boost: Use unlicensed spectrum to boost cellular performance
Leverage the unlicensed 5 GHz spectrum band – LTE-U – to enhance capacity and deliver a much improved cellular network performance.
Leverage the unlicensed LTE 5 GHz spectrum band – LTE-U – to enhance capacity and deliver a much improved cellular network performance.
Cellular boost works by delivering LTE-Advanced (LTE-A) signaling protocols across unlicensed spectrum bands commonly used for Wi-Fi. You’ll see download speeds that almost triple what licensed small cells can deliver on their own, along with improved cellular network performance.
By aggregating LTE in licensed and unlicensed frequencies, you deliver a better quality of experience to your customers. And you ensure that the spectrum is shared fairly with Wi-Fi.
How cellular boost benefits your customers
Your customers will get up to a 3X increase in the downlink data rate, better cell edge performance, and all the mobility, security, and reliability that LTE offers.
How cellular boost benefits you
Cellular boost takes advantage of LTE-U to augment limited licensed spectrum. That means you can offer higher speeds to your consumers. And LTE-U can be deployed in any environment: home, enterprise, outdoor, or rural and remote areas.
