Earlier this week, Smith Micro Software, Inc. announced that to manage its broadband functionality on Windows 8 devices, Sprint has selected the QuickLink MiTile solution. For the Windows 8 home screen, the solution includes a customized connection management tile application.
While extending Sprint branding, it provides enhanced roaming controls and usage monitoring features for subscribers.
“QuickLink MiTile solution allows Sprint customers to benefit from advanced features related to their Sprint broadband account along with the inherent broadband features of Windows 8. Working with Smith Micro, this solution delivers simplicity and added value for Sprint customers,” said David Owens, vice president of product management and logistics at Sprint.
Von Cameron, executive vice president of worldwide sales for Smith Micro Software, said that for many years, across many different devices, Smith Micro has been supporting broadband connectivity for Sprint, and it always looks forward to working with Sprint on new initiatives.
For both companies, a top-notch user experience for customers is a primary focus and QuickLink MiTile will allow Sprint to deliver that on Windows 8 and other platforms that leverage its standards-based connectivity solutions.
Monitoring usage between billing cycles and receiving proactive alerts when thresholds are met are among the advanced features enabled by QuickLink MiTile for subscribers. Making device support and mobile connections more efficient and reliable, Sprint is also able to dynamically change Preferred Roaming Lists and device configuration updates over the air.
A component of the QuickLink family of connectivity solutions, QuickLink MiTile is also part of Smith Micro’s Mobile Experience Platform. While optimizing network and device resources, it helps mobile operators, device manufacturers and enterprises simplify and enhance the mobile experience.
