Opening the way for convergence in the 5G era with MPTCP

Olivier Bonaventure, Nicolas Men

In the emerging architecture for 5G networks, the ATSSS function (Access Traffic Steering, Switching & Splitting) will play a key role in managing data traffic between 3GPP access & non-3GPP access (such as WiFi). In this paper we briefly describe how this works and introduce Multipath TCP (MPTCP), the underlying protocol which has been selected by 3GPP for ATSSS

Hybrid access as an upgrade to fixed wireless

Graham Turnbull

Some operators are rolling out Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) which implies connecting TV's, laptops, phones, tablets, and smart home controls to the Internet over wireless networks. We propose supplementing FWA with fixed line connectivity using our hybrid access solution to offload traffic from the wireless network and to ensure consistent service for end users
