Wi-Fi Standards are evolving with Carrier Grade Wi-Fi deployment steadily picking up. Evolution of existing services and proliferation of new services is causing the industry to emphasize on the quality of experience to the end user. Also, Operators would like to offer differentiated services over a Carrier Wi-Fi network with guaranteed Quality of Service (QoS). The traditional 3GPP style of imperative QoS model unfortunately does not work for WLAN Access technology due to federated deployment architecture.
Outcomes / Target Audience
Statement to the industry identifying the minimum set of requirements that operators would like to have for Wi-Fi QoS. Development of guidelines document, including standards, protocols and metrics which will be regarded as the one standard for QoS resulting in wide adoption by the industry.
