Mobile Carriers can now offer highest quality experience as customers’ calls and data find the best, fastest path with no interruptions or dropped service

A smart, reliable cloud-based solution to OTT messaging threats

SpectrumMAX solution delivers a competitive response to the OTT messaging threat

It’s a natural fit as our technologies combined provide a dramatically more powerful solution for carriers to compete in quality, cost and services while keeping a firm eye on their capital budgets.

SpectrumMAX, a Wi-Fi calling and advanced messaging services company, and Pravala Networks, a provider of comprehensive connectivity management platforms for smartphones, tablets, and vehicles, announced today they are joining forces and integrating Pravala’s patented network quality control technology into SpectrumMAX’s next-generation mobile app and core platforms.

The SpectrumMAX-Pravala partnership creates a patented “end-to-end” experience with dual-path signaling of voice and messaging services across Wi-Fi access points and the network operator’s macro cellular network. The addition of Pravala’s patented technology to the SpectrumMAX portfolio delivers calls and messages with transparent handovers and a persistent IP connection, ensuring always-on connectivity as the user moves between networks. Moreover, the handover of carrier Wi-Fi calls and messages can be accomplished without the full SpectrumMAX IMS solution, thanks to Pravala’s technology.

“The protocols most carriers use today to hand off voice and data from cellular to Wi-Fi and back again simply don’t provide the quality of service the wireless industry or its customers are looking for and expect,” said John Goocher, COO of SpectrumMAX. “This partnership with Pravala allows SpectrumMAX to change the industry standard as we know it. It doesn’t just look at the quality of the Wi-Fi signal, but it also has the ability to understand the quality of the cellular and Wi-Fi connections with true MOS ratings and has the intelligence to know the best experience, automatically selecting the fastest, most secure and cost-effective network to ensure an unparalleled mobile user experience.”

SpectrumMAX has integrated Pravala to offer fast, seamless, and frustration-free wireless network experiences. Pravala has a leading network Quality Monitor, which crowdsources network quality information for real-time monitoring of network experience; Wi-Fi Access Manager, which provides comprehensive network policy management for Wi-Fi offloading; and Application Control Engine, providing seamless handover and bandwidth aggregation for mobile apps.

“We’re excited to be partnering with SpectrumMAX, as their platform is all about maximizing the potential of a carrier’s spectrum,” said Richard Wagner, CEO of Pravala. It’s a natural fit as our technologies combined provide a dramatically more powerful solution for carriers to compete in quality, cost and services while keeping a firm eye on their capital budgets. We believe together we’re setting the grounds for new standards that will be implemented industry wide in the years to come.”
