Personalized and seamless Wi-Fi access to Venue-Based Services
International audience
Due to the proliferation of Wi-Fi hotspots in public indoor areas (such as restaurants, airport, and shopping malls) and the ubiquity of Wi-Fi in mobile devices, Venue-Based Services are increasingly deployed by venue owners and Wi-Fi operators in their networks to improve their users' experience and generate new revenue streams. These services are locally offered by the venue and client mobile devices should typically authenticate and associate to Wi-Fi networks to be able to discover these services. However, end-users often prefer to associate to a Wi-Fi network only if it offers the specific service they need. Moreover, they no longer want to intervene frequently to manually search for and choose a network which offers the desired service. Therefore, providing more personalization and transparency for access to Wi-Fi networks and services becomes a crucial concern and requirement to give customers the user experience they desire and expect. This paper proposes a solution to enable venue service discovery prior to Wi-Fi association while avoiding channel overhead and defines a set of service labels to uniquely and globally identify the most known venue-based services. We show then how these two contributions could be efficient and useful and help to have a personalized, transparent and automated access to venue-based services through Wi-Fi networks.

Cloudlet- and NFV-based carrier Wi-Fi architecture for a wider range of services
International audience
Over the past few years, Wireless Local Area Networks (WLANs) have been extensively deployed and have significantly evolved. However, the deployment of large-scale WLAN still presents management issues. Moreover, while newer WLAN technologies and services have been emerging at a prolific rate, the architecture of WLAN networks has been quite static and has seen difficulties to evolve. In this paper, we present a novel architecture for carrier-managed WLAN networks which leverages Network Function Virtualization concepts and virtualization technology in general. It is based on a WLAN Cloudlet which offloads MAC layer processing from access points and consolidates network functions and value-added services. All these functions and services are based on software instances. This brings more flexibility and adaptability and allows operators to easily implement new services while reducing CAPEX/OPEX and network equipment costs (e.g., access points).
