real-time network evaluation
The Wireless Access Manager (WAM) from Carnegie Technologies provides real-time cellular and Wi-Fi network evaluation and selection based on policies set by the operator, allowing for seamless integration of Wi-Fi and cellular networks.
Selecting a network based on signal strength is like selecting a highway based on the number of lanes – it works well when there is no traffic, but if the highway is congested you end up with slow speeds.
Yet modern phones use this simplistic metric to decide the number of “bars” of quality a network has – completely ignoring the amount of congestion. WAM incorporates true end-to-end quality measurements representative of application performance to ensure you get on the best network.
Dynamic policy system to control handset behavior based on location, network, device state, and more
Automatic switch to Wi-Fi with auto-authentication, and back to mobile when Wi-Fi is poor
Global network quality understanding based on crowdsourced user measurements
Small application, low data usage, minimal battery use
Supports Android, iOS, and Windows with self-hosted on-site or cloud management
Web-based reports with REST/JSON query interface
Measures actual user experience, WAM reports how well web, video, and VoIP work for users
Communicate directly with users with unobtrusive notifications
Data usage tracking:
Avoid bill shock and compare operator & private Wi-Fi usage
