BandwidthX’s advanced connection management service and a cloud-based BxMarket, allows participants to put excess mobile data capacity to work while making sure that every automated connection improves the end user’s experience and providing the mobile operator effective control of exactly when and how data capacity from various sources is used. In BxMarket both Mobile Operators and Network Service Providers can define their value for data capacity in real time and are automatically matched when their values align. The business to business solution brings savings for Mobile Operators, new revenue streams for Network Service Providers, and better service for end-users.

“BandwidthX is revolutionizing the mobile data industry with BxMarket and their advanced connection management. The benefit that their solution brings to its customers through unlocking unused mobile data capacity while still maintain the quality of service for the end user is very impressive,” says Furlong. “I’m very excited to be a part of the team and company’s bright future.”
