WILMINGTON, Del.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Wi-Fi® offload and efforts to reduce wireless network congestion are pertinent and current topics for the mobile industry, and InterDigital, Inc. (IDCC) has been focusing research into the area for several years. The companys approach, which focuses on intelligent bandwidth management that integrates Wi-Fi offload into a holistic multi-network solution, will be highlighted beginning today at the Telecom Council Carrier Connections conference (TC3), the yearly showcase event of the Telecom Council of Silicon Valley.
