Easy Access to High-Quality Hotspots Offers Windows Phone Users Cost Effective Data Use

SAN BRUNO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/06/12 -- Devicescape, the WiFi offload company, today announced that it has licensed WiFi data from its Curated Virtual Network (CVN) to Microsoft for Windows Phone 8. This agreement will allow Windows Phone 8 users to easily and reliably locate high-quality hotspots leading to a significantly improved user experience while reducing mobile data costs.

"Mobile data caps, tiers and throttling are limiting the smartphone experience," said Dave Fraser, CEO of Devicescape. "By leveraging the Devicescape network of public hotspots, Microsoft can now pass along tremendous value to its Windows Phone 8 users enabling them to locate a nearby quality WiFi network. Windows Phone 8 users will now have an alternative way to manage their monthly data plan while maintaining the quality of service they are accustomed to from their mobile provider."

Devicescape's CVN is the most advanced collection of high-quality hotspots with over 11 million to date. By leveraging crowd-sourced data from the millions of devices already deployed, the ever-growing WiFi network is constantly discovering new hotspots while continuously measuring the quality of existing access points. The inclusion of WiFi data from the CVN for Windows Phone 8 serves to enhance the overall user experience while providing significant value to end-users and the Microsoft suite of mobile solutions.

"Devicescape has the leading collection of WiFi hotspots," said Reid Kuhn, Windows Phone Program Manager. "By utilizing the Devicescape WiFi hotspot data, Windows Phone 8 users will be able to locate free and popular WiFi hotspots, allowing them to save money wherever they may be."

Most DevOps journeys involve several phases of maturity. Research shows that the inflection point where organizations begin to see maximum value is when they implement tight integration deploying their code to their infrastructure. Success at this level is the last barrier to at-will deployment. Storage, for instance, is more capable than where we read and write data. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Atwell, a Developer Advocate for NetApp, will discuss the role and value extensible storage infrastructure has in accelerating software development activities, improve code quality, reveal multiple deployment options through automated testing, and support continuous integration efforts. All this will be described using tools common in DevOps organizations.
