Recently, NBC’s Today show team presented some topical segments on the dangers of open, unsecure Wi-Fi that are commonplace at Hotels and other locations https://www.today.com/money/how-protect-your-data-hackers-while-spring-break-t124181 and https://www.today.com/money/spring-break-travel-safety-jeff-rossen-offers-tips-t125260 (head to 3:10 for the Wi-Fi segment in this one).

We’re all pretty familiar with the two main Radio Access Networks (or RANs as they are known as in the trade) on our Smartphone or tablet devices that give us that all-important internet connectivity: Cellular mobile and Wi-Fi – and also the big difference between them historically in terms of ease of access to that connectivity from a user experience perspective.

MWC - Interview with Claus Hetting, Wi-Fi Now

The advantage of Mobile World Congress is to bring industry leaders and luminaries together in a single location for 4 manic days of meetings. 

And thus I found myself talking with Claus Hetting, founder of Wi-Fi Now, and a leading voice in the cause for Carrier Wi-Fi networks and services.  Normally on the other side of the camera, Claus was kind enough to let me record our quick chat – discussing some hot new technologies as well as the growing success of Wi-Fi in mobile roaming and offload services.
