ROMSEY, England, March 2, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --
Hall 7, Stand 7C86, Mobile World Congress, Barcelona
Chemring Technology Solutions, a developer of world-class mobile data management solutions, will be demonstrating how SmartSwitch uses intelligent on-device policy management to integrate with Cisco's Evolved Packet Data Gateway (ePDG).
The SmartSwitch solution for policy-managed access selection enables both SIM and non-SIM devices to be integrated into the mobile core, over any trusted or untrusted Wi-Fi network. This allows operators to offer subscribers services on any device, via any network, maximising their over the top service based revenues.
As service providers develop more value added services, such as Voice over Wi-Fi, they must deliver them to subscribers on any device via any network. The increased use of SIM-free tablet devices, which use public Wi-Fi, has challenged service providers to ensure that services are always available to their customers. SmartSwitch's policy controlled ePDG client now enables service providers to register a non-SIM device into a subscriber's account, automatically select the best Wi-Fi network (trusted or untrusted), connect to the mobile core and deliver the value added services.
Ben Toner, Head of Data Management at Chemring Technology Solutions, said: "SmartSwitch delivers a new level of access selection intelligence, supporting operators' desire to move across to more secure data delivery and voice over Wi-Fi. Fully integrated with the policy intelligence of the Cisco Policy Suite for SP mobile, and with Cisco as a partner, we have been able to demonstrate this enabling technology and completed our proof of concept."
The world's first true policy-on-the-device app, SmartSwitch provides enhanced subscriber engagement and connection management capability. SmartSwitch allows operators to increase opportunities for the monetisation of network management, is interoperable and tested with major network policy solution providers, and can be deployed onto Android, iOS and M2M platforms.
By enabling mobile operators to develop a network that intelligently interoperates with smartphones, and other devices, SmartSwitch delivers subscribers a personalised mobile data experience. SmartSwitch can be deployed as an aftermarket application from any app store, without the need for operators to invest in infrastructure or additional capability.
SmartSwitch is optimised to provide network operators with intelligent selective offload and traffic shaping. Its unique policy framework allows operators to choose between in-built traffic management solutions for seamless and aggregated use of network technologies, or to make use of native functionality offered within the chipsets. As SmartSwitch is application aware, this also gives operators the ability to reduce congestion in known problem coverage areas and ensure that traffic from value-added applications is not lost.
