Offerings by Leading Mobile Software and Services Company Solve Go-to-Market Challenges for Broadband Devices and the World's Top Wireless Carriers
ALISO VIEJO, CA - Smith Micro Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: SMSI), a leading developer and marketer of software solutions and services for the mobility market, will demonstrate a variety of its market leading products at Mobile World Congress, February 14-18, 2011. Located at booth 2A61, Smith Micro Software will showcase its QuickLink Hotspot Manager powered by SODA™ 1.0 (Secure On-Device API), and VIDIO, a carrier-grade software platform for delivering high-quality video content.
SODA - A New Standard in Device Communication
It's becoming increasingly difficult for hardware OEMs and wireless carriers to support multiple operating systems (OS) and new device types as more WiFi-enabled devices enter the mobile market. Developed for carriers and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), the SODA specification is a global solution for device communication that solves the problem of mobile fragmentation. SODA provides a consistent interface across all mobile broadband devices, form factors, hardware/software manufacturers, chipset suppliers and operating systems. Smith Micro's QuickLink Hotspot Manager powered by SODA provides an integrated interface for consumers, allowing them to wirelessly connect and manage their mobile hotspot and providing a better user experience across a range of devices.
A Program to Unite the Industry
Access to Smith Micro Software's SODA specification is available through the company's new SODA Innovator Program. Serving the mobile market, the program streamlines ever-increasing mobile device go-to-market challenges. Mobile operator partners will receive several advantages, including earlier lead-time for IP development of custom SODA modules. Device manufacturers will benefit from early integration of priority devices that can be brought to market faster.
VIDIO - Helping to Better Optimize Mobile Video
VIDIO's RF-based, adaptive streaming capabilities empower carriers and content owners to efficiently and reliably deliver high-quality mobile video to consumers, regardless of their mobile device. VIDIO's proprietary transcoding technology eliminates the complications wireless providers experience, adapting content as it streams, to suit the requirements of a particular device and current network conditions. Consumers are demanding more mobile content, along with the ability to view content on a myriad devices, including PCs, tablets and mobile phones, positioning the market for multi-format video transcroders to see rapid growth. According to a January 2011 study by ABI Research, pay TV encoder and transcoder revenues will grow from $779 million in 2010 to $1,408 million in 2016.
"Consumers' wireless demands are shaping the next generation of technology deployed across the ecosystem, and the mobile operators, OEMs, and device manufacturers are feeling the brunt of the demands," said Robert E. Elliott, CMO at Smith Micro. "Our robust mobile platform enables the world's leading mobile operators and OEMs to better leverage these opportunities for revenue growth."
