SANTA CLARA, USA: Stoke Inc. unveiled a new Wi-Fi Exchange gateway solution that allows operators to use Wi-Fi to resolve capacity challenges as part of an integrated service offering without losing touch with their subscribers. As a result, operators can rapidly roll out trusted commercial offload programs in areas where congestion is affecting user satisfaction and contributing to subscriber churn.
Stoke Wi-Fi Exchange gives operators the ability to safely and automatically authenticate Wi-Fi subscribers and securely link them to their services network, but requires no software installation or hardware changes on mobile devices. Stoke's Wi-Fi Exchange gateway enables operators to provide trusted connections to mobile services, offering high-density secure session termination of Wi-Fi connections outside the operator core.
The new Clientless Interworking solution helps to overcome existing challenges to service provider offload by delivering unique Wi-Fi offload capabilities, not available in alternative offerings. These include:
* eliminating the need for software installation on or hardware modifications to the mobile device;
* enabling a fully-featured and secure experience over Wi-Fi;
* providing operators with visibility into Wi-Fi subscriber traffic in order to optimize the user experience; and
* allowing operators to remain connected with their subscribers throughout their mobile broadband experience.
