InterDigital, the company which recently sold about 9000 patents related to networks has now announced Smart Access Manager Client for Windows Phone platform. This is not an end user application which we can download from the marketplace, instead this is for OEMs to include in their devices for seamless network connectivity.
InterDigital’s SAM is a policy-driven client that enables smartphones, tablets and other wireless devices to make intelligent traffic management decisions using Wi-Fi, 3G and LTE networks. The SAM client dynamically directs traffic flows by type of application, resulting in optimized connectivity and enhanced service provider visibility and control.
InterDigital believes that SAM along withÂ Alcatel-Lucentâ€™s lightRadio Wi-Fi solution will provide OEMs with the ability to offer seamless and secure policy-driven Wi-Fi handover as a differentiator â€“ a key capability given the increasing use of mobile devices for data-rich applications such as streaming video.
SAM Client sounds cool, now Nokia should hear this new solution from InterDigital!
