Mobolize has today expanded into Europe, growing its operations across the Atlantic to introduce its patented, on-device data management software to mobile network providers.
As part of this expansion, Mobolize is unveiling Mobolize Bond, a new on-device software product. Mobolize Bond increases mobile device performance by seamlessly and intelligently managing, or bonding, a smooth handoff between Wi-Fi and cellular connections for users on the move to create the fastest possible connection. It fixes poor consumer experiences as they travel amongst Wi-Fi and cellular networks and enter dead zones where devices often don’t disconnect from weak Wi-Fi networks to connect with cellular in a timely manner. Mobile users can become frustrated when they unknowingly enter dead zones where they experience lost or delayed connections to streaming video or music, apps, websites or GPS.
Mobolize claims that Mobolize Bond demonstrated benefits to both network providers and users in recent trials The number of Wi-Fi networks accessed by users more than doubled due to increased connectivity and performance compared to not using Mobolize Bond. Users’ time spent on Wi-Fi networks tripled, increasing Wi-Fi data consumption by over 2.5 times, helping increase Wi-Fi offload for carriers. Additionally, trials have shown that 80% of users enjoyed a seamless downloading experience when browsing, with significantly fewer drops in service and lags in streaming videos. The majority of the trial users reported that their data experience improved, claims the company.
Mobolize Bond adds to Mobolize’s suite of smart mobile data traffic management software and is a compliment to Mobolize Secure which uses Mobolize’s SmartVPN to bring traffic through its data engine, providing the most efficient, secure Wi-Fi solution for the mobile device.
