SAN BRUNO, CA--(Marketwire - Sep 17, 2012) - Devicescape, the leader in WiFi offload services, announced today that it was honored with the SPIFFY Best Mobile Opportunity Award. The SPIFFY awards were presented in front of an estimated 400 telecom professionals during the Telecom Council Carrier Connections Summit (TC3) hosted by the Telecom Council of Silicon Valley last week in Sunnyvale, California.
The 5th Annual SPIFFY Awards recognized start-ups for their innovation, market opportunity and quantifiable interest among the Council's 25 global service providers.
