Devicescape’s mission is to discover, understand, and harness the world’s Wi-Fi.
We believe that, by enabling Wi-Fi everywhere to function as part of a single network, it is possible to create a resource far greater than the sum of its parts.
We have already crowd-sourced and categorized more than 500 million Wi-Fi access points worldwide to create our Curated Virtual Network (CVN).
It enables our customers to generate powerful first party presence data, to deliver proximity messaging with industry-leading engagement rates, and to automatically connect end users to shared Wi-Fi — across a huge footprint of high-footfall locations.
The CVN offers a unique combination of reach, precision and accessibility. It is venue- and merchant-independent, delivering insight and service in millions of popular places of interest, creating the potential for monetization and value add at every visit.
Millions of Places.
