The user can choose expansion modules for Simatic ET 200pro IWLAN as usual from the range of Simatic ET 200pro modules.
The new interface module is integrated in the communication network as an IWLAN client via an IWLAN access point, such as the Scalance W access point from Siemens.
The Greenpacket ICM, which manages data congestion by offloading data traffic from secured 3G networks to unsecured WiFi networks, can now ensure a high level of security to the operator's home network with the integration of the Intouch iWLAN Client.
Operators currently face the dilemma of having to manage heavy data traffic at the expense of losing sight of their subscribers: With the Intouch iWLAN Client, they have full control of subscriber's WiFi access and on top of that, enjoy a new VAS revenue stream offering anything from video and audio streaming, to ringtones, application downloads and games."
The launch of Greenpacket's iWLAN Client for secured data offloading is timely with mobile data usage hitting network capacities.
Greenpacket will be showcasing the Intouch iWLAN Client at Greenpacket's booth #3961 at the upcoming CTIA Wireless 2011 on 22 to 24 March in Orlando, Florida.
