ACN & Flash Wireless Select Devicescape's Wi-Fi Offload Service

(Marketwire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) SAN BRUNO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/22/13 -- Devicescape today announced that Flash Wireless, LLC, a U.S.-based mobile virtual network operator and wireless partner of ACN, Inc., will integrate Devicescape's Wi-Fi offload service into the core capabilities of the mobile offering sold through ACN's independent business owners. ACN's Flash Wireless mobile end-users will have automatic access to the ever-expanding network of more than 11 million high quality Wi-Fi hotspots in the Devicescape Curated Virtual Network (CVN), while Flash Wireless will be able to manage data costs, maintain highly competitive data pricing plans and provide a high quality wireless experience.


"From the start, ACN has sought to provide our customers with high value digital services that are both economical and easy to use," said Michael Whitt, Vice President of ACN. "Devicescape's service is a perfect fit; with Flash Wireless, our end-users will experience automatic access to high quality mobile data, while the utilization of Devicescape's virtual network of Wi-Fi hotspots will allow us to decrease our operational costs and still maximize savings for subscribers." The Devicescape service offers policy and quality control management options that dynamically integrate amenity-based public Wi-Fi networks, encourage home and personal network use, all while ensuring a transparent user experience. Devicescape's patented curation process tests and re-tests tens of millions of newly discovered and existing hotspots in real-time, resulting in an ever-growing carrier-grade Curated Virtual Network. Managed by the cloud-based service, the intelligent client software automatically and seamlessly connects a mobile device to the CVN based on the best connection available.

"Devicescape is extremely pleased to be working with Flash Wireless and a worldwide leader such as ACN to extend the capacity reach of its network," said Dave Fraser, CEO of Devicescape. "Devicescape's cloud-based architecture will allow ACN to deploy a Wi-Fi offload solution quickly and cost-effectively, ensuring they meet end-user expectations as well as serving the company in growing their wireless subscriber base." The rising costs of mobile data use continue to concern end-users and mobile operators alike, driving operators to investigate solutions that help manage data transmission costs and improve the mobile experience. The pervasive nature of amenity Wi-Fi enables the Devicescape service to deliver industry leading incremental offload rates from 15-50% of cellular data. This enables operators to meet customer demand for high quality constant connectivity at an affordable price.
