The ability to use voice, mobile apps, SMS, email, websites, chat, video, and social media through a single device is forcing operators to rethink their mobile strategies in the form of offload. With the increased data usage, operator networks become increasingly congested. As such, a smart and dynamic connected interaction is necessary to allow better traffic management with particular capabilities of the device with which it is characterized.
In this paper, we will examine how dynamic data offloading with 3GPP based Access Network Discovery Selection Function (ANDSF) plays its role in the implementation of selective offloading. ANDSF as specified in 3GPP standards describes how the inter-system mobility between 3GPP systems and non-3GPP systems (WLAN, WiMAX, CDMA) policies and priorities can control the conditions for which a device connects to which wireless network. As mobility is becoming a mainstream for customer engagement, operators must ensure contextual continuity is preserved through an integrated approach.
