     Service Provider Wi-Fi Services Over Residential Architectures

Abstract

   The tremendous growth in Wi-Fi technology adoption over the last
   decade has met the ultimate possible goal of 100% adoption rate.  All
   most every new mobile device is now equipped with IEEE 802.11-based
   wireless interface and with pre-configured policy to prefer Wi-Fi to
   cellular access.  Matching this evolution is every service provider's
   desire to offer Wi-Fi based broadband services; a new business
   opportunity even for fixed line operators.  Operators are exploring
   options to monetize their existing networks, most with nation-wide
   footprint, to build a high-speed Wi-Fi service that can be the basis
   for offering new wireless broadband services.  This document
   identifies the requirements for supporting these new Wi-Fi community
   services and the mobility tools which have been standardized in IETF
   that can be used for enabling these architectures.
