Devicescape Leads 'Beyond Offload' Discussion at the Wi-Fi Offload Summit 2014

Chief Marketing Officer Discusses How Wi-Fi Will Complement 4G, and Will Sit on Panel to Debate MNO Wi-Fi services

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM and SAN BRUNO, CA--(Marketwired - Jan 23, 2014) - Devicescape today announced that David Nowicki, CMO at Devicescape, will lead the discussion on curated amenity Wi-Fi at the Wi-Fi Offload Summit in Frankfurt, 22 - 23 January 2014. During the Operators Keynote session at 10.10am CET on Thursday, January 23, entitled 'Beyond Offload: How a Massive Curated Wi-Fi Footprint Complements 4G,' Nowicki will address a range of issues including how operators can manage the smartphone experience for subscribers, stimulate overall usage and deliver a better user experience.

In addition, Nowicki will participate in the panel debate 'How to Address the Need for Wi-Fi Services Among MNOs: Deploying Effective Carrier Wi-Fi Services', where he will be joined by senior executives from Deutsche Telekom AG, EE and InterDigital.

Devicescape curates and automates the world's amenity Wi-Fi, enabling mobile operators to magnify their capacity-reach and elevate the 'always best connected' experience. Devicescape now actively monitors close to 250 million amenity Wi-Fi hotspots worldwide. Its Curator Service uses machine-learning algorithms and the connection experience of its tens of millions of registered users to identify carrier-grade access points, which are incorporated into the company's Curated Virtual Network (CVN) that totals over 16 million global access points.

"Devicescape recognises curated amenity Wi-Fi as a core strategy for mobile operators in helping them deliver an optimal customer experience through seamless access and automatic connection. By taking advantage of amenity Wi-Fi, operators can extend network capacity and provide a service which complements the 4G user experience," said Nowicki. "Industry attitudes towards Wi-Fi are changing. Operators now feel that they can go beyond offload to integrate cellular and Wi-Fi to better manage the smartphone experience for subscribers."
