In today’s digital world, our mobile devices have become a natural extension of our bodies. However, Wi-Fi user experiences are not always optimal, despite the growing web of network connectivity options. Moving between intersecting Wi-Fi access points and LTE/5G cellular coverage often results in disrupted performance, dropped calls and user frustration. To correct this problem, operators need the ability to control which traffic is routed over which network. A viable solution would need to address challenges like estimating network performance, application type-specific routing, seamless network switching and more. No single solution has overcome all of the obstacles necessary to deliver seamless cooperation between Wi-Fi and cellular technologies—until now.
Enter Adaptive Route Control (ARC). ARC is an intelligent traffic routing solution that uses crowdsourced network-probing algorithms to identify the best network per user and per application type in real time. With ARC, users have a seamless connectivity experience when transitioning between networks, and operators can both realize significant cost savings and gain control over the user experience.
