Chemring Technology Solutions Demonstrates SmartSwitch's M2M Capability on Multi-Tech Platform

ROMSEY, England, February 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Hall 7, Stand 7C14, UKTI Pavilion, Mobile World Congress, Barcelona

At this year's Mobile World Congress, Chemring Technology Solutions will be demonstrating how SmartSwitch™ and Multi-Tech's M2M platform can enable network operators to maximise monetisation opportunities for next generation apps, without impacting real-time service reliability.

The  advanced policy engine in SmartSwitch™ supports M2M applications by intelligently matching the priority of the data to a mobile network's preferred times (such as a pre-defined off-peak schedule). This will maximise M2M system development opportunities, such as telehealth or industrial applications, without congesting mobile networks.

Ben Toner, Incubation manager at Chemring Technology Solutions, said: "To offer both the mobile network and the user a real benefit, SmartSwitch™ can connect the needs of the M2M application with the needs of the mobile network. It allows Multi-Tech's M2M mobile devices to separate data into real-time and non-urgent classifications so that they use the wireless service at a time when the data cost is lower for the end-user and network less congested, enabling the operators to maximise service reliability."

Rod Landers, CEO of Multi-Tech, said: "I'm really excited to see this technology getting deployed and we are very flattered that Chemring chose Multi-Tech's products to demonstrate SmartSwitch™ at Mobile World Congress.  We see this as an important tool for M2M applications and network operators to more efficiently manage their traffic and costs of service which will further accelerate growth in the Internet of Things."

SmartSwitch™ is the world's first true policy-on-the-device app that provides enhanced subscriber engagement and connection management capability. It is optimised to provide network operators with intelligent selective offload and traffic shaping, much of which can be provided as a simple application delivered via an app store. Its unique policy framework allows operators to choose between in-built traffic management solutions for seamless and aggregated use of network technologies or to make use of native functionality offered within the chipsets.  

By using context aware conditions, an understanding of user preferences and interaction with the billing platform, network and data management are brought to life. As SmartSwitch™ is application aware, this also gives operators the ability to reduce congestion in known problem coverage areas and ensure that traffic from value-added applications is not lost.

In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists will dis...
See storage differently! Storage performance problems have only gotten worse and harder to solve as applications have become largely virtualized and moved to a cloud-based infrastructure. Storage performance in a virtualized environment is not just about IOPS, it is about how well that potential performance is guaranteed to individual VMs for these apps as the number of VMs keep going up real time. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, in product and marketing at Tintri, will discu...

Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Yoav Mor, multi-cloud solution evangelist at Cloudy...
