Mobolize enters the European market to help operators move out of the dead zone

US company Mobolize has expanded into Europe to introduce its patented, on-device data management software to mobile network providers.

As part of this expansion, Mobolize is unveiling Mobolize Bond, which increases mobile device performance by seamlessly and intelligently managing, or bonding, a smooth handoff between Wi-Fi and cellular connections, creating 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.

In recent Mobolize trials, Mobolize Bond demonstrated:

  • The number of Wi-Fi networks accessed by users more than doubled due to increased connectivity and performance.
  • 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.

Mobolize’s patented smart data engine has had great success in the US with customers that include a Tier 1 US operator. We have ambitious growth plans in Europe where we’ve been in conversation with a range of European mobile operators over the last year. Today, numerous disruptors are challenging the mobile market from changing consumer behaviour to new technologies. Mobile data providers need to think smarter about delivering optimum data performance for a better customer experience.
