WiFi Wake-up from Intrinsyc and Ubiquisys Integrates Carrier WiFi Initiatives with 3G/LTE Small Cell Technology


Operators looking to optimize their cellular and Wi-Fi services will have something to look forward to when Intrinsyc Software International and Ubiquisys, a developer of 3G and LTE small cells, get together to demonstrate WiFi (News - Alert) Wake-up at Mobile World Congress, February 27 -- March 1, 2012.


WiFi Wake-up is an innovative combination of handset and small cell apps that allows smartphone users turn off Wi-Fi when it is not being used. According to company officials, this helps to extend the battery life of the device and also provides operators with a tool to maximize data offload.

Whenever the user enters a 3G/LTE (News - Alert)/WiFi small cell hotspot and logs into the hotspot's secure WiFi network, WiFi Wake-up switches on WiFi and when the user exits the hotspot, WiFi is automatically turned off.

"Smartphones and small cells just got smarter. WiFi Wake-up could be the missing link for operators looking to optimize their cellular and WiFi services to deliver a better user experience," said Chris Gilbert, CEO at Ubiquisys.

Intrinsyc is a product development company and its handset application that is initially available on Android (News - Alert) can be deployed either through an app store or embedded in the handset platform software.

At the small cell end, Ubiquisys Hotspot 2.0 compatible software ensures automatic public Wi-Fi login.

"Small cell hotspots should be a convergence point for wireless technologies," said Tracy Rees, CEO at Intrinsyc. "By ensuring that the right wireless technology is used by the smartphone at the right moment, WiFi Wake-up ensures a better experience for mobile users and significant improvements in battery life."
