NetWise I/O toolkit tests client-server interoperability using ANDSF protocol
ALISO VIEJO, CA - February 19, 2014 – Smith Micro Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: SMSI), a leading provider of wireless and mobility solutions, today announced the successful completion of interoperability tests between the Amdocs Smart Net intelligent offload solution and the Smith Micro NetWise® traffic management client. Amdocs used Smith Micro’s NetWise I/O toolkit to validate ANDSF interoperability that would enable seamless Wi-Fi offload and traffic optimization over heterogeneous networks.
The NetWise I/O test environment is the industry’s first formal certification tool for testing compliance to the Access Network Discovery and Selection Function (ANDSF) standard. NetWise I/O ensures that network policies sent by an ANDSF server are being received and interpreted correctly by the ANDSF client residing on the device. Further, NetWise I/O provides valuable information about the execution of ANDSF operations on devices, including response times, hand-over experience, connection establishment and teardown times, and policy conflict resolution. NetWise I/O helps to accelerate commercial deployment of ANDSF-based management solutions intended to improve user experience and balance network traffic through the seamless handoff of data between 3G, 4G and Wi-Fi networks.
“The Amdocs Smart Net Solution makes intelligent policy-driven offload decisions, based on a customer's service profile, value, and location, to maximize revenues, alleviate congestion and ensure a best connected experience,” said Rebecca Prudhomme, vice president of product and solutions marketing at Amdocs. “Validating interoperability between Smith Micro’s toolkit and the Amdocs Smart Net Access Controller server, gives our customers the assurance of standards-based compliance, backed by industry-leading mobile device lifecycle management.”
“Market demand to improve cellular to Wi-Fi interoperability is growing quickly, but to achieve a truly seamless experience across heterogeneous networks, operators will need solutions that are proven to be both interoperable and extensible to support more advanced traffic management needs,” said David Sperling, CTO of Smith Micro Software. “We’re very proud that our expertise in wireless connectivity, policy on device, and related industry standards has proven valuable to Amdocs to accelerate the delivery of market-ready, intelligent traffic management solutions.”
The NetWise platform uses the power of policy-on-device to help operators and enterprises control network connectivity, manage devices, and provide more reliable, efficient wireless access to end users. For more information visit:
