Smith Micro Demystifies ANDSF at GSMA North America 
Principal Technologists Present Real-World Examples of How Emerging
Industry Standards Enable Carriers to Deliver a Seamless Mobile
ALISO VIEJO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 10/15/13 --  Smith Micro
Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: SMSI), a leading provider of wireless and
mobility solutions, today announced it will lead two educational
sessions on emerging industry standards at GSMA North America
(GSMANA), October 14-16 in Vancouver, B.C. Spanning more than 220
countries, the GSMA represents the interests of mobile operators
worldwide, and Smith Micro has been an active member in GSMA since
2009. The company is also releasing a new whitepaper on Access
Network Discovery and Selection Function (ANDSF) to help clarify the
role, functionality and potential value of this standard to wireless
service providers. 
As a pioneer in mobile connectivity, Smith Micro has deep experience
and leadership in the development and commercial deployment of
wireless industry standards. For the 3GPP's ANDSF standard, Smith
Micro was the first to offer an easy to use toolkit, NetWise I/O, to
validate interoperability between network infrastructure and mobile
devices using ANDSF policy management. The company recently completed
ANDSF interoperability testing with Openet, a provider of real-time
transaction management software and services.  
In a session focused on ANDSF, Smith Micro's vice president of
research and development, Dzung Tran, will provide attendees with an
introduction to the ANDSF network standard, and will outline why
ANDSF is a critical building block for operators trying to create a
seamless experience for users connecting to heterogeneous networks.
Additionally, he will outline ANDSF deployment scenarios, possible
extensions and advanced use cases. Tran's session is scheduled to
take place on October 16 at 11:15am PT. 
Chris Heistad, manager of software architecture and platforms at
Smith Micro, will present the Open Connection Manager API (OpenCMAPI)
standard from the Open Mobile Alliance (OMA). In this session,
Heistad will provide a detailed overview of the OMA OpenCMAPI
specification, explain the value of a connection manager API to the
wireless industry, and review the OMA's roadmap for OpenCMAPI. 
Heistad is scheduled to speak on October 16 at 10:30am PT.  
"As a contributor and user of these specifications, we believe it's
important for all members of the wireless ecosystem to understand how
these standards will enable truly seamless mobility for end users and
open new opportunities for service providers," said David Sperling,
CTO at Smith Micro. "ANDSF is a complex subject that can be very
confusing to differentiate from other initiatives focused on network
interoperability. Our goal is to help clarify what ANDSF is,
including its limitations, and most importantly, provide guidance
that will help service providers maximize value from ANDSF
