Most mobile and heterogeneous networks today are built for widespread coverage-reach, but only statistical and partial capacity-reach, depending on historical traffic trends. Mobile operators can predict and build for coverage because they know where people go to work, shop, play, and so on. And coverage-reach stays more or less consistent over time.
But capacity planning is far more difficult and expensive to get right, because operators don’t really know how much demand to expect in a given area at a given time. For example, a group of teenagers streaming video while waiting for the school bus can stretch the capacity of the network in new, unexpected ways. Data traffic is far more random than voice communication, and peak times are getting tougher to predict, as usage is highly dependent on fast changes in user behavior, new apps, and viral effects. And this unpredictability takes a toll on the mobile experience, especially when users are indoors and expecting a rich, high-quality experience. How can operators ensure that capacity gets built cost-effectively everywhere they need it?
Devicescape’s Curator Service was built to maximize both coverage-reach and capacity-reach at the same time, without compromise and without needing to build more networks or modify existing ones. The carrier-grade Curator Service uses intelligent network selection to leverage the world’s largest network, which has already been built by the massive number of large and long-tail businesses hoping their customers will enjoy their amenity Wi-Fi. The Curator Service enables operators to automatically connect subscribers to the best network at the best time. And the number of networks to choose from grows tenfold overnight when the Curator Service leverages Devicescape’s Curated Virtual Network (CVN) and Curator Machine Learning Technology. The best amenity Wi-Fi, combined optionally with carrier and partner Wi-Fi, can deliver an elevated user experience that augments mobile usage. Suddenly there is capacity in every nook and cranny across the network—and it’s there whenever it is needed.
