Devicescape keeps end users Always Best Connected by integrating cellular connectivity with public, private and carrier Wi-Fi to create a seamless, quality-controlled mobile data experience.
At the heart of the Devicescape Service Platform (DSP) is the CVN — a unique, Curated Virtual Network of more than 20 million amenity Wi-Fi locations worldwide, including those provided by some of the world’s most popular service and retail brands, managed in real time for quality, availability and reliability. Drawn from a total monitored base of more than 315 million hotspots the CVN offers a huge capacity boost at a fraction of the costs associated with operator-owned infrastructure.
