The hottest WLAN operation is not smooth and disor

WLAN operation: cut constantly, manage disorderly

the WLAN business of the operator, which has always appeared as free, may say goodbye to free, but this is not alarmist

Guangdong Mobile announced that from January 2013, Guangdong Mobile will adjust its WLAN charging mode, from the past global connect users to all brand customers who have opened WLAN for free, and will receive 1 hour of WLAN free time in the province every month. Previously, China Unicom also announced that the duration of WLAN free service will end at the end of 2012

in fact, the industry has not been optimistic about free WLAN services for a long time. It is predicted that one day operators will change their strategies because they cannot bear the cost pressure. Guangdong Mobile just took the first step. A free service cannot last long. Therefore, more operators will announce WLAN service charges next. Fu Liang, an independent Telecom observer, said in an interview with the communications industry daily ()

historical experience also proves that free meals are not feasible. The Philadelphia government tried to promote a free wireless city plan in 2005, but many cities in the United States followed suit, but all ended in failure. The fundamental reason is that it is free

but what makes operators tangle is how many users are willing to pay for this business once they charge users. I have fixed broadband at home, and I can use cellular network on the road. Why should I choose WLAN? Besides, its business perception is not good. Many ordinary consumers said to

for this WLAN technology, which bears the role of 3G network diversion, the complex of operators may be described as continuous cutting and confusion

cut constantly

data from the WiFi alliance shows that China has become the market with the largest demand for WiFi. The penetration rate of Wi Fi in China has reached 21.8%. By 2016, China is expected to add 110million Wi Fi households, accounting for 31% of the total number of Wi Fi households in the world

the three major operators' complex for WLAN is reflected in the WLAN network diversion. With the vigorous development of mobile Internet and the exponential growth of data traffic, the mobile network of operators is under heavy network pressure. At t and other foreign mainstream operators have experienced network paralysis in the early years

in order to change this situation, at t has deployed WiFi hotspots on a large scale since 2009. Today, 20% of iPhone traffic flowing through at t networks flows through public WiFi hotspots, 60% of the traffic is unloaded on home WiFi networks, and only the remaining 20% of the traffic is carried by mobile networks. Korea k2 High precision and high frequency data collection t also achieved 67% diversion of data traffic through WLAN network in 2010

looking at China, China Mobile is the most active of the three major operators. At the early stage of TD network development, the strategy of g+t+w synchronous promotion was determined. In 2011, the strategy of "four synergies" was put forward. An internal document from China Mobile shows that WLAN has become an important network carrying mobile data traffic from the perspective of the global telecommunications industry. The company vigorously promotes the construction of WLAN, which meets the trend of technological development and customer needs

in 2011, China Mobile has more than 2million hotspots. In this year, China Mobile's wireless uplink traffic reached 217.3 billion MB, including 112.3 billion MB of mobile data traffic and 105 billion MB of WLAN data traffic. It is estimated that WLAN traffic accounts for nearly 50%

wlan has obvious shunting effect on China Mobile's mobile network. An employee of China Mobile Design Institute told me

maybe it's because of this effect. In 2012, China Mobile raised the importance of WLAN. Its glass transition temperature was about 28 degrees to the level of daily work. At the 2012 China mobile working conference, Li Yue, President of China Mobile, made it clear that WLAN is a low-cost and efficient traffic carrying solution. With the rapid growth of data traffic and the increasing pressure of wireless cellular network, we should pay special attention to the construction and operation of WLAN. In 2012, WLAN construction, maintenance, operation and business development should be included in the daily work system

he mentioned that China Mobile plans to deploy more than 1million hotspots in the next three years. In fact, in 2012 alone, China Mobile deployed more than 1million WiFi hotspots. By the end of 2012, the number of mobile WLAN hotspots in China had reached 3.78 million

in the first three quarters of this year, China Mobile's wireless upstream traffic quadrupled to 626 billion MB, including mobile data traffic of 2001 billion MB and WLAN traffic of 4259mb. It is estimated that the proportion of WLAN traffic has increased from nearly 50% last year to 70%

according to the plan of China Mobile, by the end of 2015, more than 6million hotspots had been deployed. At the same time, in order to provide better business experience for more users, China Mobile clearly proposed in the WLAN equipment bidding in the second half of last year that all products should support the 802.11n standard. Not long ago, China Mobile launched the non perception authentication service. It is worth mentioning that Xi Guohua, chairman of China Mobile, specially went to the United States to investigate the deployment of 802.11ac, or 5g WiFi

in fact, WLAN is also an important strategy established by Chinatelecom after its full-service operation. In 2010, Chinatelecom's WLAN hotspot surpassed that of China Mobile. But after that, the pace of Chinatelecom slowed down. By the end of 2012, Chinatelecom had more than 900000 AP hotspots

China Unicom is the slowest among the three operators. With the deployment of Telecom and mobile WLAN networks, Unicom feels the existence of competitive pressure. In order to improve the development of experimental machine fixtures and make up for shortcomings, China Unicom purchased 70000 WLAN devices at one time in 2010. In 2012, China Unicom completed the construction of 300000 AP hotspots that year

Ma Hongbing, deputy chief engineer of China Unicom Design Institute, said in an interview with communication industry daily (): Although China Unicom's 3G network speed is the fastest, its wireless spectrum resources are limited. In the future, with the rise of large-scale bandwidth applications, it is necessary to put great pressure on Unicom's network, and the use of WLAN network diversion is a necessary measure. China Unicom will pay more attention to the construction of WLAN network

in fact, the most respected expert on WLAN network is Kai Li Kan, a professor at Beijing University of Posts and telecommunications. Quote the view he has always held: 3G is a chicken rib, which is a pity to abandon and tasteless to eat. However, WLAN represents the future development direction. WiFi has the advantages of low cost and wide bandwidth. Therefore, WiFi has incomparable advantages over 3G in terms of cost and bandwidth

of course, another important reason for China Mobile to vigorously develop WLAN is to compete for home broadband users. Due to the lack of fixed licenses and resources, mobile can't do much in the home fixed broadband business, but it is unwilling to be submerged

slogans of China mobile broadband coverage are hung everywhere in a residential community on the outskirts of Qingdao, Shandong Province. According to media reports, the highest download rate can reach 10m

in this regard, Fu Liang said that mobile is very likely to obtain a fixed license in the future, and vigorously developing home WLAN may be an important pawn for China Mobile to seize the market opportunity
