Devicescape Service Platform nominated for Best Cloud Based Technology

LONDON, UK & SAN BRUNO, Calif., February 6, 2014—Devicescape today announced its Wi-Fi service platform has been shortlisted for the 2014 Global Mobile Awards in the “Best Cloud Based Technology for Mobile” category. Devicescape’s solution enables operators to own the smartphone experience across Wi-Fi and cellular, ensuring subscribers are “always best connected.” Devicescape’s nomination acknowledges the growing importance of Wi-Fi to mobile operators and the demand for cloud-based technologies.

The spiralling demands of mobile data present huge challenges for telecom operators. Their networks, which are expensive to deploy and manage, are constrained by limited spectrum leading to inadequate coverage and performance. To address this issue, Devicescape has created an entirely new kind of network platform—called the Devicescape Service Platform—that is global in scope and orders of magnitude cheaper than current alternatives.  The platform, which is fully software based, stringently managed for quality, massive in size and fast growing, enables a variety of unparalleled services at unmatched operating costs.

“The GSMA warmly congratulates all those nominated in the 2014 Global Mobile Awards,” said Michael O’Hara, Chief Marketing Officer, GSMA. “We saw a record level of interest in the Global Mobile Awards this year, with more than 680 quality submissions, making it a very challenging task for our judges to select the short list. We very much look forward to recognising the winners at Mobile World Congress next month.”

The winners will be announced at a special ceremony held at the GSMA Mobile World Congress in Barcelona on Tuesday, 25 February. For more information about the Devicescape Service Platform, visit www.devicescape.com, or follow Devicescape on Twitter @Devicescape.
