Imagine a world where worrying about exorbitant roaming rates is nothing but a distant memory, where switching off your roaming capabilities on your mobile device is not the first thing you do when you land in a foreign country, and where the OTTs are not the first roaming choice of the subscribers.
Well this world is finally becoming a reality, and the catalyst is Voice over WiFi (VoWiFi). Mobile operators can now equip themselves with what could become the long awaited technology to go toe to toe with the OTTs on their own turf - the internet - and put an end to the era of the silent roamers.
This 360 vision paper will delve into each of the key elements of VoWiFi roaming. From the opportunity it represents for the different stakeholders, to the network architecture that needs to be put in place. It then goes on to define the challenges that this represents and how IPX providers can play in all of this.
Hopefully, by the time you have finished reading this paper, you will be convinced that, if operators play their cards right, VoWiFi could become one of the greatest game changers in the history of roaming.
