WiFi Offloading made easy (and secure)
Network Operators and MVNOs are facing a critical bandwidth issue. As markets, customers, and smartphones multiply, mobile networks are being overwhelmed with data demands. Facing soaring costs, Network Operators have been working for years to offload this increased traffic to wifi and leverage existing investments in infrastructure to no avail.
But, that is all about to change. Introducing the Speedify software development kit (SDK). Our easy to implement SDK helps network operators and hardware manufacturers make use of the Speedify engine to seamlessly switch between Internet connections providing increased QoE while reducing LTE usage.
What is WiFi Offloading?
WiFi offloading is the idea that data should travel over (cheaper) wifi instead of cellular networks whenever practical. Offloading the data onto Wi-Fi networks frees up mobile bandwidth and allows carriers to take better advantage of existing wired telecom infrastructure.
Some of the primary obstacles are:
- iOS and Android devices are unable to tell when a hotspot is “dead” or not functioning properly
- Manually switching between networks is time consuming and cumbersome
- Consumers end up with interrupted internet access during network changeovers
- Consumer concern about hotspot security
Speedify addresses all of these with seamless channel bonding technology.
How Does the Speedify SDK Change the Game?
For MVNOs, the benefits of the Speedify SDK are twofold – moving more traffic off of LTE and onto Wi-Fi results in bigger savings as well as a better internet experience for customers.
The Speedify SDK is a complete solution to channel bonding and Wi-Fi offloading issues on mobile devices. It can be built into existing iOS, Android, Windows, and MacOS software and runs in the background monitoring and improving network performance for all the apps on the device. The Speedify SDK is cost aware and uses policy based routing that can be configured for increased speed or reduced cellular usage. Optional VPN encryption means that Speedify can also keep users secure across public Wi-Fi networks.
Currently, when a consumer connects to a dead hotspot, the device does not automatically fall back to using LTE. Instead, the consumer is stranded without any internet connection. This creates a poor user experience and discourages future use of hotspots. The Speedify SDK eliminates this problem.
