The financial value of devices and networks are moving away from the 'fixed-price' model and towards monetizing on-going 'value creation.' In today's paradigm a few powerful companies control the majority of the value creation, limiting the ability of OEMs and network operators to monetize devices. With Kimera Systems' intelligence technology, devices and networks will have the ability to understand the user and connect to software services directly, eventually bypassing app stores, social platforms, ad networks, etc. This allows OEMs and network providers to be in a position where they not just understand value creation, but can also monetize value creation.
M2Catalyst, LLC. is a mobile app development and solutions company that has developed M2AppMonitor Carrier Edition, a sophisticated and comprehensive app management tool. M2AppMonitor is an all-in-one mobile application that monitors all of the apps on a user's device to keep track of app behavior and inform users of potential efficiency and behavioral issues. The app enables the average consumer to monitor ten key app performance metrics. These include Resource Alerts, such as battery, data, and memory usage, as well as CPU processing and storage space, Stability Alerts, such as update frequency and crashes, and Access Alerts, such as extensive permission requests, analytics agent tracking, and excessive notification use. The M2AppMonitor client also transmits the data on app behavior to the carriers, building a massive database of app quality information for recommendation engines and tech support alerts, which helps to reduce both tech support calls and device returns. M2AppMonitor Carrier Edition is unique in that it monitors nearly every available metric that could be of importance to both carriers and users. It goes above and beyond what other mobile apps are providing and specifically collects information in order to keep track of app efficiency, helping to improve the mobile experience.
Locality is the first network performance management software developed specifically for cellular networks. Residing on a mobile device, it collects information on signal quality, location, and usage, and aggregates that data into reports organizations can use to troubleshoot connectivity issues, compare carriers, track devices, evaluate technologies and more. Over 60 organizations use Locality’s data to optimize their mobile deployments. “Before Locality, we did our best to troubleshoot issues by asking officers to describe their symptoms,” said Albert Gauthier, Oregon State Police. “[Now we have] real empirical data for bandwidths, real time access to connectivity data, device inventory information and more.”

There are 2.5 billion people in the world today without access to cellular service. With the conversion from legacy telco protocols to IP, the opportunities for LBS and Cloud Services are endless. Until now making the jump to an IP network was costly and complicated, with lengthy installation timelines as well as high maintenance and support costs, often out of reach for tier 2 and tier 3 carriers. Learn how the co-creator of OpenBTS is enabling remote and rural areas to participate in a cellular network with case studies on the successful implementation of cellular networks from around the world.

WE's new technology satisfies a long-existing and growing need for predictable and efficient indoor wireless networks. WE is the first to offer cost-effective, waveguide-based wireless signal distribution for Wi-Fi, cell, and more. WE's waveguide backbones "short-circuit" losses between signal source(s) and client areas. Losses normally encountered in walls and clutter are bypassed by placing a super-efficient,(essentially lossless) plenum-rated WE waveguide above these signal absorbers and reflectors. User areas are completely illuminated with full-strength signals over wide areas. Signals to and from users are preserved, not wasted. "Guess and Try" now becomes "Desk Design, then Install." "Design Anxiety" is eliminated.
