SMART WI-FI   The growth of the mobile industry during the last century has been one of the business world’s greatest success stories. In less than 30 years, mobile handsets have become a mainstay of daily life for more than 3 billion people around the world.  Now, the industry is facing the next great challenge as consumers embrace the mobile Internet and smartphones.

…mobile data traffic has grown nearly 5,000% in three years.”

Mobile operators are feeling the strain on their macro networks as mobile data usage continues to grow exponentially.  In addition, aggressive flat-rate data pricing is becoming the industry norm, and the capital cost to add the needed capacity to mobile networks is no longer being offset by expected revenues.  Mobile operators need cost-effective methods to increase network capacity and improve coverage to meet ever-growing subscriber demands.

Kineto is the leading provider of Smart Wi-Fi solutions based on the 3GPP GAN standard, which enables mobile operators to increase network capacity and improve coverage by leveraging Wi-Fi technology.

VOICE OVER LTE  For many mobile operators today, voice accounts for more than 80% of total mobile-service revenues.  As mobile operators begin their LTE deployments, there is a growing need to extend today’s voice and SMS services to the mobile broadband access network. 

“VoLGA presents a viable way forward that doesn’t require a re-architecture of the network.”
Brian Partridge, Research Director, Yankee Group

Kineto is a key innovator and leading supplier of products that deliver Voice over LTE via the existing 3GPP GAN standard, also known asVoLGA

With VoLGA, mobile operators can immediately bring revenue-generating voice and SMS services to LTE deployments. VoLGA lets operators protect their investment in the proven and expansive voice infrastructure while laying the foundation for a migration to IMS telephony.
