Smart Communications Selects Greenpacket's Intouch Connection Management Platform

Greenpacket, a leading developer of next generation mobile broadband and networking solutions, recently announced in a press release that Smart Communications Inc., the Philippines’ largest wireless service provider, has chosen its Intouch Connection Management Platform (ICMP). The solution will enable seamless connectivity across 3G and Wi-Fi access networks, making Smart the first Philippine operator to offer converged connectivity.

Customized to support Smart’s new targeted advertisement push services, ICMP solution enables Smart to readily deploy services using existing SIM-based technologies and Wi-Fi infrastructures on both Smart-owned and partner-networks without infrastructure upgrades.

“Customer satisfaction is our utmost priority and Smart Communications, Inc. always strives to deliver the best service experience. We chose ICMP because the Greenpacket team has shown strong capability in delivering a superior product that is customized according to our needs,” said Mario G. Tamayo, head of Smart’s Technology Services Division, in a statement. 

Kelvin Lee, senior general manager of Greenpacket said, “A growing number of operators consider data offloading to be the more viable solution to resolve the network congestion by offloading data traffic onto complementary Wi-Fi networks without altering their existing infrastructure compared to network expansion and thus, benefiting from more capacity at lower cost per bit. By converging multi-network access technologies, consumers can have the best service experience from their operators.”

He added, “We are pleased to be working with the leading and largest service provider in the Philippines. We are confident of our leadership in Connectivity, Data Offloading and Mobility Management markets globally. At this stage, we are committed in leading the market by providing Wi-Fi solutions that are field proven and commercially deployed globally. With over 10 years of pioneering efforts in research and development, we continue to be a strong advocator in delivering the best connectivity experience to our customers.”

In other news, Greenpacket recently announced it has secured 4G device deals with major operators, Aria and Max Telecom.

The deals help the company expand its presence in Europe. Greenpacket’s 4G WiMAX devices are already deployed in one in three EU countries including CIS. The company has gained traction in countries like Hungary, Italy, Portugal, Romania and Spain.
