In-building mobile broadband operator SpiderCloud Wireless is integrating Wi-Fi capability into its 3G small-cell cluster solution, enabling mobile operators to offer 3G as well as Wi-Fi capacity in Internet hotspots, office buildings, campuses and shopping centers.

SpiderCloud says it will offer enterprise- and service-provider-grade Wi-Fi functionality, including automated RF planning, inter-radio node mobility, quality of service, wireless intrusion detection and prevention, 802.1x-based authentication and 802.11u.

The integrated system consists of a dual-mode radio node capable of supporting one 3G radio and two 802.11 a/b/g/n radios, and a dual-mode services node responsible for controlling the small-cell cluster and integrating it with a mobile operator’s core network as well as an enterprise’s intranet. ?

The new solution, in development since 2010, will be available for trials in the second half of 2012.
