Integrated solutions specialist Cincinnati Bell (News - Alert) has recently selected Devicescape for its offload solution, attached by Devicescape's Curated Virtual Network (CVN).
This new deployment will enable Cincinnati Bell's wireless customers to access CVN of over 11 million hotspots quickly and automatically using their Android (News - Alert) smartphones. The service is expected to offer superior end-user experience and additional network capacity to manage the growing levels of data demand.
"It's always been Cincinnati Bell's goal to provide the highest quality network for our customers," said Karen Bruce, Director of Wireless Data with Cincinnati Bell. "Our partnership with Devicescape will help us further this objective by augmenting our current service offering and providing a new option to help customers manage their data plans."
The Devicescape Offload, a policy- and quality-controlled management service is managed in the cloud. This service operates hand-in-hand with company’s Offload Client, and effectively supplies the information the client needs to get online. Devicescape officials said that they achieve the industry's highest percentage of offloaded mobile traffic by placing the intelligence, management, and control in the cloud, not just in the client software.
"Devicescape is delighted to be working with Cincinnati Bell to extend the reach of its network," said Dave Fraser, CEO of Devicescape. "We applaud Cincinnati Bell's desire to deliver the best possible user experience and lower the cost of data delivery."
Cincinnati Bell plans to add the Devicescape offload service pre-integrated with their new Android devices and this service will also go live with other Android phones through an application called CB WiFi (News - Alert), which can be downloaded initially from the Google Play Marketplace.
Devicescape, which serves mobile operators with advanced Wi-Fi solutions, is headquartered in California, privately held by leading venture capital companies including Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, August Capital, JAFCO Ventures, and Enterprise Partners.
