2 PAGE 2 Outline  System capacity discussion  802.11u  Wi-Fi Hotspot 2.0  Hybrid LTE/Wi-Fi small cells

3 PAGE 3 3 1000x Capacity Increase: Needed 5B cumulative smartphone sales estimated for 2012 - 2016 Average traffic per smartphone nearly tripled in 2011 - 150 MB/Mo, versus 55 MB/Mo in 2010 Over the past five years, AT&T’s wireless data traffic has grown 200X Exponential growth in mobile data utilization

4 PAGE 4 1000x Capacity Increase: Possible!  Number of antennas limited by device size  Spectrum limited by availability, government policy  Interference mitigation difficult, can only go so far  Only big lever is to substantially reduce cell size  But cellular deployment models/economics make increasing the number of base stations by 32x expensive and slow nW# users capacity/user ≈ n  W  log 2 (1+ )/# usersSignal Noise Number of Antennas (4x?) More Spectrum (4x?) Mitigate Interference (2x?) Small Cells! (32x?)

5 PAGE 5 Why Wi-Fi? The capacity is needed, the clients are there The number of devices connected to IP networks will be twice as high as the global population in 2015, up from one networked device per capita in 2010. Source: iSuppli, Q2, 2011 Connectivity Forecast. Other Wi-Fi-enabled clients consists of the following: printers – 41M in 2011, 69M in 2015; digital cameras – 7M in 2011; 24M in 2015; gaming consoles – 40M in 2011, 56M in 2015; handheld gaming – 36M in 2011, 35M in 2015; eReaders – 3M in 2011; 15M in 2015; LCD TVs – 18M in 2011; 180 in 2015; DVD Players/Recorders – 12M in 2011; 29M in 2015; STBs – 3M in 2011, 7M in 2015.

10 PAGE 10 How Does 11u Change the Situation? SSID 1 SSID 2 SSID 3 SSID 4 Current Approach: Device scan for SSIDs End user has to associate with SSID to discover the service in the SSID End user launches web browser and enters URL to get web service Current Approach SSID 1 SSID 2 SSID 3 SSID 4 802.11u Approach: Device scans for service (not SSID) Prompts end-user or auto launches service End-user clicks on prompt, automatically associates with SSID, and seamlessly launches a web service 802.11u Service Discovery Pre-association Service

11 PAGE 11 What’s Required to Implement 802.11u  The AP needs a “service advertiser”  The client device needs a “service launcher” 802.11u-enabled Handset Handset Vendor Wi-Fi Driver Software Update 802.11u Protocol stack GUI Handset Vendor Verizon LMS Integrated into WI-Fi IC

12 PAGE 12 802.11u GUI  802.11u defines messaging and protocols, but these are straightforward  The key will be creating GUI’s that allow users to configure this capability easily and to their liking OFF Mode: Service ON LMS OpenClosed Handset with 802.11u GUI My Icons: Target Ascot Starbucks Best Buy - Favorites 802.11u Filters Wi-Fi Driver Software Update 802.11u Protocol stack GUI 802.11u Filters Show me only Coffee houses Hotspot Retail stores LMS

13 PAGE 13 Hotspot 2.0 (Passpoint)

14 PAGE 14  Service Provider Wi-Fi is currently not easy to use (manual intervention required) and confusing  Web page redirection creates ease of use problem  Absence of a standardized mechanism for connection establishment  Hotspot network connectivity ≠ Network service  Inconsistent and limited security (local access and authentication mechanism)  No indication that a session has expired – network access is suddenly lost Problem Statement Cellular : Turn on phone and make callHotspot : Turn on Wi-Fi and ? Find Connection Manager Launch Connection Manager Scan for SSIDs Select Correct SSID Associate with SSID ?

18 PAGE 18 Qualcomm Confidential and Proprietary — Restricted Distribution - DO NOT COPY MAY CONTAIN U.S. AND INTERNATIONAL EXPORT CONTROLLED INFORMATION — Hotspot 2.0 Procedure  Discovery: The mobile device is scanning for APs with which to associate and for related information useful for network selection  HS 2.0 enables an STA to discover usable APs based on Hotspot Operator Friendly Name, Roaming Consortium list, Venue name, NAI Realm list, Domain Name list, 3GPP Cellular Network information  Additional performance related information is available eg., BSS load, Backhaul capacity, WAN Metrics, Connection Capability, Online Signup providers list, etc.  Registration: The mobile device is setting up a new account with an SP or hotspot provider. If the mobile device already has valid credentials for a given hotspot, this state is short-lived.  Provisioning: The Wi-Fi infrastructure is establishing credential information and providing policy information to the mobile device. If the mobile device already has valid credentials for a given hotspot, this state is short-lived.  Security schemes available are WPA2 Enterprise, EAP-SIM, EAP-AKA, EAP-TLS, EAP-TTLS  Access: The mobile device has successfully associated and authenticated with the hotspot and can access the services for which the user has subscribed.

20 PAGE 20 ANQP elements used for HS2.0 (not complete list)  Roaming Consortium  Indicates roaming consortium or SSP (i.e. operator) whose security credentials can be used to authenticate with the AP  Domain Name List  Domain Name of the entity operating the 802.11 network  Values include: On-line enrollment supported, HTTP/S redirection  Operator Friendly Name  Wi-Fi client can request a list of all the mobile operators' names that are allowed to automatically connect to the Wi-Fi hotspot. If your operator's name is on the list, your device will proceed with connection decisions  WAN Metrics  Provides information on the speed of the WAN connection to the Internet.  Connection Capability  Provides connection status of the most commonly used communications protocols and ports.  Network Access Identifier (NAI) Home Realm Query  Used by the STA to determine if the NAI realms for which it has security credentials are realms corresponding to SPs or other entities whose networks or services are accessible via this BSS. (Which service providers can I connect to here?)  Hotspot (HS) Query List  Provided by STA to AP  Carries identifiers of ANQP elements for which the mobile is querying the AP  Hotspot (HS) Capability List  Provides list of information configured in AP back to the mobile device

Hotspot 2.0 capable STA uses ANQP to the AP to determine properties of the Hotspot 2.0 Access Network. The Hotspot capable STA selects the ANQP query elements it requires to query the Hotspot 2.0 network for Interworking Service information. GAS Initial Request Frame ( Advertisement Protocol = ANQP; ANQP Query = {Venue Name, Network Auth, Roaming Consortium, IP Address Type, NAI Realm, 3GPP Cellular information, Domain Name; Operator Friendly Name, WAN Metrics, Connection Capability} ) GAS Initial Response Frame ( Advertisement Protocol = ANQP; Venue Name; Network Auth; Roaming Consortium; IP Address Type; NAI Realm; 3GPP Cellular information; Domain Name; Operator Friendly Name,; WAN Metrics; Connection Capability) Hotspot 2.0 capable STA evaluates the response based on its Hotspot 2.0 subscription information and associated policy and choose to associate to the AP.
