Hall 7, Stand 7C86, Mobile World Congress, Barcelona
At this year's Mobile World Congress Chemring Technology Solutions will be demonstrating SmartSwitch, the world's first true policy-on-the-device app, and SmartLink™, a portable network-in-a-box with a 10km range.
Chemring Technology Solutions will be demonstrating SmartSwitch's latest features, which support the deployment of Wi-Fi First and Voice over Wi-Fi services. New this year, is the introduction of intelligent, policy-managed ePDG (Evolved Packet Data Gateway) integration, which supports the addition of Wi-Fi infrastructure into the service provider's core network. With patents for policy controlled access selection now fully granted in the USA, SmartSwitch is now the region's industry leading policy managed Wi-Fi solution.
In evaluations by the largest global mobile network and cable operators, SmartSwitch's policy-driven access technology is repeatedly proven to offer the most comprehensive network management capability on the market. SmartSwitch has been awarded contracts by customers in North America, Europe and the Middle East, and has been trialled in South America and the Far East. It now has ANDSF and access selection integration with five of the top 10 policy management vendors.
SmartLink™ is a complete, self-contained cellular network-in-a-box that can be deployed in less than 90 seconds. Designed specifically for use by public safety personnel, mobile network operators and first responders, SmartLink™ provides an instant-on networking experience with enhanced voice and data services to users. Its small form factor, long range and low power consumption is unrivalled in the market, and it has been successfully trialled across the globe.
Ben Toner, Head of Data Management at Chemring Technology Solutions, said: "We are delighted that our Data Management products are repeatedly selected as the most advanced solutions for Access Selection; delivering the most advanced use cases in Wi-Fi First, Voice over Wi-Fi, Secure Trusted Wi-Fi and Rapid Cellular Service Deployment.
"Mobile World Congress is an excellent platform for us to demonstrate how we enable cable companies, mobile network operators and first responders with the essential tools to provide their next generation services. As we have more than 50 years' expertise in the development of communication technologies, SmartSwitch and SmartLink are market-leading in the features they deliver," concluded Toner.
The world's first true policy-on-the-device app, SmartSwitch allows operators to implement next generation multi-access data services with added capabilities for the monetisation of Wi-Fi and collection of advanced device-centric data. It is fully interoperable and tested with five of the top 10 major network policy solution providers. SmartSwitch can be deployed onto Android, iOS and M2M platforms as an aftermarket application from any app store, without the need for operators to invest in infrastructure or additional capability.
When the local mobile infrastructure is unavailable, SmartLink™ delivers a self-contained communications network to share voice, data and video information between its users. Its ability to provide instant-on private networking between rescue teams, first responders and emergency services, using equipment contained in a backpack, sets it apart from all other solutions. This unique capability provides the communication backhaul needed for team collaboration and safety. Its uses include policing large events, national border security, humanitarian aid and public safety operations, where the existing commercial mobile network coverage may be unreliable or non-existent.
