'We are very flattered that Chemring chose Multi-Tech’s products to demonstrate SmartSwitch at Mobile World Congress. We see this as an important tool for M2M applications and network operators.' - Rod Landers, CEO, Multi-Tech Systems
Barcelona, Spain (PRWEB) February 25, 2014
At this year’s Mobile World Congress, Chemring Technology Solutions will be demonstrating how SmartSwitch and Multi-Tech’s M2M platform can enable network operators to maximise monetisation opportunities for next generation apps, without impacting real-time service reliability.
SmartSwitch’s advanced policy engine supports M2M applications by intelligently matching the priority of the data to a mobile network’s preferred times (such as a pre-defined off-peak schedule). This will maximise M2M system development opportunities, such as telehealth or industrial applications, without congesting mobile networks.
Ben Toner, Incubation manager at Chemring Technology Solutions, said: “To offer both the mobile network and the user a real benefit, SmartSwitch can connect the needs of the M2M application with the needs of the mobile network. It allows Multi-Tech’s M2M mobile devices to separate data into real-time and non-urgent classifications so that they use the wireless service at a time when the data cost is lower for the end-user and network less congested, enabling the operators to maximise service reliability.”
Rod Landers, CEO of Multi-Tech, said: “I’m really excited to see this technology getting deployed and we are very flattered that Chemring chose Multi-Tech’s products to demonstrate SmartSwitch at Mobile World Congress. We see this as an important tool for M2M applications and network operators to more efficiently manage their traffic and costs of service which will further accelerate growth in the Internet of Things.”
SmartSwitch is the world’s first true policy-on-the-device app that provides enhanced subscriber engagement and connection management capability. It is optimised to provide network operators with intelligent selective offload and traffic shaping, much of which can be provided as a simple application delivered via an app store. 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.
By using context aware conditions, an understanding of user preferences and interaction with the billing platform, network and data management are brought to life. 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.
