LinqUs™ Advanced Wi-Fi Services


​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Providing the best net​work traffic management

 

With the explosion of Smartphone subscriptions (from 1.1 billion in 2012 3.3 billion in 2018), the mobile technology market has drastically changed consumer behavior leading to a tremendous mobile data traffic growth (x 13 from 2012 to 2017 – Cisco VNI 2013).

In parallel, technological developments are rapidly raising the use of Wi-Fi as a connection channel by mobile users, which has become the preferred option over traditional mobile cellular networks for wireless connectivity.

Recent figures show that Wi-Fi data traffic will reach 46% in 2017 of total mobile data traffic (Cisco VNI 2013). Most of users see Wi-Fi as part of a seamless, integrated means to gain the constant connectivity that their mobile lives and devices demand.

That’s why mobile operators now believe that offloading data traffic to Wi-Fi networks has a significant role in helping them avoid saturated networks and unhappy customers.
