SAN BRUNO, Calif. — Devicescape today announced that the number of device connections to amenity Wi-Fi hotspots via its Curated Virtual Network (CVN) has grown by 50 percent in the preceding 12 months. The company now manages 1.5 billion monthly consumer Wi-Fi connections via client applications provided by mobile operators and device manufacturers. Operator-verified data has revealed that the quality of subscriber data experience is greatly enhanced and cellular data consumption can be halved if required.

In the last 12 months, Devicescape has concluded and announced agreements with eight significant cellular operators in the North American and European markets. Additionally, direct agreements have been concluded with both Intel and Microsoft (licensed by Verizon), which will dramatically increase the number of devices with native support for CVN connection and/or identification. That momentum is set to continue with further agreements either recently completed or in final-stage contract negotiations.
