Smith Micro Presents Wi-Fi Management Challenges and Opportunities with Comcast Case Study

Oct 14, 2015
CTO David Sperling discusses techniques for simpler, smarter, safer Wi-Fi access at Wi-Fi Global Congress

ALISO VIEJO, CA – October 14, 2015 – Smith Micro Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: SMSI), announced its CTO, David Sperling, will present a customer case study on Wi-Fi management challenges and opportunities at Wi-Fi Global Congress on October 14.  In his presentation, “Simpler, Smarter, Safer Wi-Fi Access using Policy-on-Device Management and Analytics,” Sperling will explain how Comcast, the largest cable company in North America and provider of 11 million hotspots, is using NetWise® from Smith Micro to enhance connectivity in Comcast Xfinity WiFi Apps.

As demand for high-speed mobile data grows, Wi-Fi has become a critical strategic investment for both wireless and cable network providers. For the cable / MSO market specifically, Wi-Fi provides an opportunity to expand reach outside the home and office, engage customers over mobile devices, better understand customer experience, and promote new services to customers.  However, a wide range of discovery, usability, and Quality of Service (QoS) challenges can impede adoption if not managed effectively.

“To capitalize on the benefits of Wi-Fi, providers must first address challenges around access point discovery and prioritization, secure login, connection quality, congestion, and seamless network transitions,” said David Sperling, CTO, Smith Micro.  “Using our NetWise policy on device platform, we’re helping Comcast and other wireless providers address these challenges to deliver a higher quality of experience for the end user.”
