Frederick, Md. (PRWEB) September 26, 2017
Epitiro, a provider of scalable wireless assurance solutions and services, today announced the launch of a new solution portfolio following a successful spinout from Spirent Communications. The company’s focus will be assurance and benchmarking of wireless experience as Wi-Fi and cellular technologies converge and more companies become service providers.
As mobile data continues to explode worldwide, cellular networks need to keep up with data demand and economically cover all in-building locations. Wireless technology is evolving to provide continuous connectivity and expanded coverage. Technologies such as Hotspot 2.0, Passpoint, LAA/LTE-U, Voice over Wi-Fi and Carrier Aggregation, supported by changes in the signaling, authentication, and device operating systems are coming together to provide seamless wireless coverage. Wireless services are now so vital to everyday life and work that many types of companies are becoming providers – global carriers, major venues, enterprises, hospitality and retail establishments.
Epitiro’s portfolio of probes, cloud-based management platform, monitoring and benchmarking services, and performance reports provide customers of all sizes with the ability to “Measure, Manage, Market” the wireless experience to drive their business. Epitiro’s portfolio can be tailored to meet the specific requirements of these diverse business segments. For larger customers, Epitiro’s new 4170 model measures cellular and Wi-Fi performance from the same device including Passpoint/Hotspot 2.0 capability.
The co-founders of Epitiro are pioneers in analysis of wireless services, as well as accomplished entrepreneurs with track records in the telecommunications industry. Dimitrios Topaltzas, Desmond Owens and Jeffrey Horner originally led Metrico Wireless to become the preeminent provider of device performance benchmarking solutions and services to Tier-1 carriers and OEMs, ultimately acquired by Spirent in 2012. The Epitiro team also brings forth technology and analytics experience from Actix, Agilent, Ascom, Comsearch, Infovista, Telephia and Verizon.
“All of us at Epitiro are excited to launch our portfolio of advanced solutions at a critical inflection point for wireless communications,” said Topaltzas, Chief Executive Officer and Co-founder, Epitiro. “While the underlying technologies continue to evolve and become more complex, one simple truth remains: all consumers depend on the wireless experience and will conduct business with providers who can deliver the performance they need. Epitiro uniquely offers a low-cost, high-scale solution to assure service quality.”
Epitiro provides wireless communication service providers—global telecom companies, Wi-Fi network operators, venue owners, hospitality, and retail businesses—with an assurance of the quality of experience they are delivering to end users. Lives and businesses run on smartphones and other connected devices. As cellular, DAS, Small Cells, and Wi-Fi networks converge for seamless connectivity, wireless services become vital for business productivity, critical information access, and social engagement.
