Smith Micro Software, a leading provider of wireless and mobility solutions, has successfully completed the 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.
According to Smith Micro, 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.
