Mobile World Congress Hosts Policy-on-the-Device Solution from Chemring Technology Solutions
Press release date: February 19, 2014
At this year's Mobile World Congress Chemring Technology Solutions [http://www.chemringts.com will be demonstrating SmartSwitch [http://www.policyonthedevice.com , the world's first true policy-on-the-device app that provides enhanced subscriber engagement and connection management capability.
SmartSwitch is interoperable and tested with major network policy solution providers and can be deployed onto Android, iOS and M2M platforms. Its advanced policy engine supports 3GPP ANDSF policies as part of a more capable policy language, allowing operators to increase opportunities for the monetisation of network management.
SmartSwitch enables mobile operators to develop a network that intelligently interoperates with smartphones, and other devices, to deliver subscribers a personalised mobile data experience. This supports operators' core business drivers of customer recruitment, retention and revenues by delivering excellent network connectivity and consistent device performance to subscribers, while reducing network cost.
Unlike other solutions, SmartSwitch is designed to deliver significant value through deployment as an aftermarket application from any app store. It can be rapidly rolled out without the need for operators to invest in infrastructure or additional capability, and is ready to connect to full policy management solutions once they are deployed in the network.
Ben Toner, Incubation manager at Chemring Technology Solutions, said: "Mobile World Congress is an excellent event for us to demonstrate how SmartSwitch is very much in tune with the objectives of 5G networks. SmartSwitch creates a mobile network that is intelligent enough to work in harmony with smartphones and other devices to deliver an unparalleled mobile data experience by taking into account the current needs of each individual customer."
SmartSwitch is optimised to provide network operators with intelligent selective offload and traffic shaping, much of which can be provided as a simple application delivered via an app store. Its unique policy framework allows operators to choose between in-built traffic management solutions for seamless and aggregated use of network technologies or to make use of native functionality offered within the chipsets. By using context aware conditions, an understanding of user preferences and interaction with the billing platform, network and data management are brought to life. As SmartSwitch is application aware, this also gives operators the ability to reduce congestion in known problem coverage areas and ensure that traffic from value-added applications is not lost.
