Wi-Fi Offload and Distributed ANDSF

The Challenge

With continued growth in mobile data traffic, MNOs are exploring ways to relieve network congestion and optimise the user experience. While there are many ways to accomplish this, one such involves increased use of non-3GPP networks, such as Wi-Fi in conjunction with conventional 3GPP access networks. MNOs need a solution that delivers the optimal network connection seamlessly from those available, while optimising the user experience and taking a leading role in simplifying and facilitating user choice. MNOs need flexibility.

The Solution

GoS Networks’ ANDSF solution adopts the innovative step of decomposing the functionality between the GoS Agent and GoS Manager. The GoS Agent acts as distributed ANDSF client that can be deployed on mobile devices (UE), while the GoS Manager provides co-ordination, policy administration, distribution and backend database functionality securely in the network, managing all active distributed ANDSF clients via the S14 reference point.
