Devicescape Wins 2013 Fierce Innovation Traffic Offload Award

Curator Service Named Top Traffic Offload Solution Solving Critical Service Provider Challenges

SAN BRUNO, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 14, 2013) - Devicescape today announced that the company's Curator Service has won the 2013 Fierce Innovation Awards in the Traffic Offload category. Devicescape's Curator Service carefully monitors and curates in real time the largest network of quality-controlled Wi-Fi in the world from an identified collection of more than 250 million global Wi-Fi hotspots. The resulting network, called the Curated Virtual Network (CVN), performs Wi-Fi offload services for mobile operators and OEMs, including Leap Wireless, U.S. Cellular, MetroPCS (T-Mobile), C Spire, Republic Wireless, Intel and Microsoft (deployed by Verizon).

"We are thrilled to be recognized by Fierce and the wireless community for our Curator Service," said Devicescape CEO Dave Fraser. "The award validates our commercial success in providing mobile network operators with the CVN, the world's largest complementary Wi-Fi network, and increasing capacity-reach while delivering an always best connected experience for mobile data users."

The Fierce Innovation Awards: Telecom Edition, a unique operator-reviewed awards program from the publishers of FierceWireless, FierceTelecom, and FierceCable, is judged by an exclusive carrier-only panel of executives from AT&T, Cablevision System Corporation, Comcast, Cox Communications, MetroPCS, Rogers Communications, TeliaSonera International Carrier, and Verizon. The Traffic Offload Award specifically highlights top industry solutions that enable offload of data traffic to alternative network architectures in congested network areas, and submissions were evaluated based on technology innovation, financial impact, market validation and end-user customer experience.

"The Fierce Innovation Awards celebrate the companies who are on the cutting edge of innovation in the wireless, wireline and advanced TV and network sectors of our industry. We were once again overwhelmed by the number and the quality of the applications we received," said Jason Nelson, Publisher of FierceWireless, FierceTelecom, and FierceCable.

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 more than 16 million carrier-grade Wi-Fi access points to date, pulled from over 250 million domestic and international access points. Mobile operators utilizing the Curator Service achieve industry-leading cellular offload rates from 15-50%.
