Devicescape Unleashes Free, Automated Wi-Fi Across Las Vegas During CTIA
"MagniFi CTIA" Android App Offers Free Curated Wi-Fi to Attendees
SAN BRUNO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/16/13 -- Devicescape today
announced the immediate availability of MagniFi CTIA, a free app for
Android devices that will enable conference attendees to utilize an
expansive network of complimentary Wi-Fi hotspots across Las Vegas
during CTIA 2013, to be held May 21-23.
As businesses converge on Las Vegas in the industry's largest
regional mobile ecosystem showcase, more than 40,000 expected CTIA
attendees will have exclusive access through the MagniFi CTIA app to
thousands of free public Wi-Fi hotspots around the city of Las Vegas.
While Wi-Fi is not centrally available in the CTIA venue, the app
will elevate user experience locating and connecting to Wi-Fi just
outside the conference and throughout the city. The collection of
Wi-Fi hotspots is made possible through Devicescape's Curated Virtual
Network (CVN) of over 12 million global amenity Wi-Fi hotspots,
normally only available through select mobile operators that have
deployed Devicescape's Curator Service.
"The MagniFi CTIA app, backed by the full power of our CVN, not only
makes Wi-Fi access in Las Vegas a breeze during the CTIA show, but
will allow visiting mobile operators to sample our Curator Service in
action," said David Nowicki, CMO of Devicescape. "Downloading the
MagniFi CTIA app will ensure your mobile device is using the best
available connection, whether it's Wi-Fi or cellular."
When operators deploy Devicescape's Curator Service, the Curator
Client software runs in the background of a mobile device as a system
service that automatically connects to the best network for the
subscriber. For users at CTIA, the MagniFi CTIA app features a
special user interface to provide a "trial" experience that also
includes Wi-Fi data gauges and meters that provide information about
how much Wi-Fi data is being used, the quality of the Wi-Fi
connection in real-time and the number of Wi-Fi access points a
mobile device has connected to using the app.
After downloading the app, visit Devicescape at Booth 3729A to get a
behind-the-scenes view of how Devicescape's CVN is extending the
capacity-reach of wireless operator networks. To book a briefing or
