By CBR Staff Writer

Wireless and mobility applications provider Smith Micro Software has expanded its NetWise traffic management portfolio with NetWise SmartSpot for iOS-based devices.

The new release will help mobile operators offload data traffic from iOS devices to Wi-Fi networks by notifying subscribers of available Wi-Fi access points and measuring their Wi-Fi efficiency.

NetWise SmartSpot is a component of Smith Micro’s Mobile Experience Platform, which helps mobile operators, device manufacturers and enterprises simplify and enhance the mobile experience while optimising network and device resources.

Smith Micro’s is optimised for mobile operators which helps in cutting network congestion and support calls associated with data usage for Apple’s iPhones and iPads.

It also helps subscribers to know when and where alternative networks are available and helps them to authenticate, connect to those networks.

The new release includes location-based discovery of available Wi-Fi Access Points beyond those that are "in range" of the device radio. It also includes visual maps and search feature, and can be integrated with operator or third-party Wi-Fi directories.
