Devicescape Shortlisted for Telecoms.com 'Best Use of Wi-Fi' Award

Judges Acknowledge Integral Role of Devicescape Service Platform in Delivering 'Always Best Connected' Experience for Mobile Subscribers

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM and SAN BRUNO, CA--(Marketwired - Feb 6, 2014) -  Devicescape today announced its Wi-Fi service platform has been shortlisted for the 2014 Telecoms.com Industry Awards in the 'Best use of Wi-Fi' category, which recognises the important role Wi-Fi plays within the telecom industry. Devicescape's solution, which has been deployed by 10 telecom operators across Europe and North America, includes the Curated Virtual Network (CVN) of more than 20 million virtualized carrier Wi-Fi hotspots that complements existing networks and allows for users to be connected to the best network -- whether that be cellular or Wi-Fi -- in any given instant.

The Devicescape Service Platform is massive, global and built entirely on cloud and machine-learning software, which makes it orders of magnitude less expensive to deploy over alternative approaches for meeting growing mobile data demand. Telecom operators who deploy the Devicescape Service Platform can readily tap into the CVN, expand capacity-reach and enable automatic connectivity, which simplifies and improves customer access.

Devicescape's solution dynamically selects the best network based on network conditions, operator policies and end-user preferences, offering customisable quality control options while providing a transparent user experience for the subscriber. Devicescape currently manages over 2 billion Wi-Fi connections each month and monitors over 315 million Wi-Fi hotspots in total.

The winners of the 2014 Telecoms.com Industry Awards will be announced at the end of February. For more information about the Devicescape Service Platform, visit www.devicescape.com, or follow Devicescape on Twitter @Devicescape.
