Devicescape Named Finalist for 2013 Fierce Innovation Traffic Offload Award

Curator Service Recognized as Top Technology in Wireless Service Provider Market

SAN BRUNO, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 11, 2013) - Devicescape today announced that the company's Curator Service is a finalist for the 2013 Fierce Innovation Awards in the Traffic Offload category. Devicescape's Curator Service carefully monitors and curates the largest network of quality-controlled Wi-Fi in the world, monitoring more than 250 million global Wi-Fi hotspots in real-time to provide Wi-Fi offload services to mobile operators and OEMs, including Leap Wireless, U.S. Cellular, MetroPCS (T-Mobile), C Spire, Republic Wireless, Intel, and Microsoft (deployed by Verizon).

"With eight new commercial deployments in the past year, it's clear that operators recognize the value of our innovative Wi-Fi offload solutions," said David Nowicki, CMO at Devicescape. "Our Curator Service, along with our continuously growing Curated Virtual Network (CVN), complements operator networks by extending capacity and coverage while elevating the user experience through utilizing a vast network that already exists in the form of public Wi-Fi."

While some operators have deployed their own proprietary Wi-Fi networks, Devicescape offers a crowd-sourced alternative that provides speedier ROI and a significant lift to the end-user experience. Operators who take advantage of the Devicescape service reduce capital expenditures through decreased investment in new base stations or small cells and achieve industry-leading cellular offload rates from 15 to 50%.

The Fierce Innovation Awards focus on advanced solutions that solve critical challenges service providers face. The Traffic Offload Award highlights top industry solutions that enable offload of data traffic to alternative network architectures in congested network areas. Applications were judged by a carrier-only panel of executives from AT&T, Cablevision System Corporation, Comcast, Cox Communications, MetroPCS, Rogers Communications, TeliaSonera International Carrier, and Verizon. Winners will be announced via live webcast on Wednesday, Nov. 13 at 2:00 p.m. EST.

Devicescape's Curator Service for operators consists of a three-part solution: a cloud-based Curator Service Platform that curates subscriber connection-related data in real time; the Curator Client that uses this data to automatically and intelligently connect subscribers to the best quality network available at a given time and place; and the Curated Virtual Network that consists of over 16 million carrier-grade Wi-Fi access points to date, pulled from over 250 million domestic and international access points.
