Devicescape today announced a partnership with leading voice and messaging app provider Norwood Systems, which sees the Devicescape Curated Virtual Network of shared Wi-Fi provide underlying connectivity for Norwood’s new ‘World Wi-Fi’ app.

SAN FRANCISCO -- Already serving millions of end users with a portfolio of market-leading voice and messaging apps, Norwood is launching World Wi-Fi to support and enhance its existing offering with intelligent connectivity.

Crowd-sourced by Devicescape-enabled smartphones, the Curated Virtual Network (CVN) drives rapid coverage and capacity growth mapped to the movement of end users. Norwood customers with the iOS and Android World Wi-Fi apps will benefit from automated access to the CVN’s 20 million, quality-managed access points across the globe.

The international focus of the new partnership is expected to further accelerate expansion of the worldwide CVN footprint outside existing Devicescape customer markets.

“As a company we believe the connectivity provided to end users, and the way it’s provided, are ripe for improvement. So we’re delighted to partner with Norwood on such a disruptive proposition, and excited about the growth it will bring to our network,” said Dave Fraser, CEO, Devicescape. “Much of the initiative in this increasingly competitive arena is being taken by non-traditional service providers, heaping pressure on incumbent operators to respond.”

Norwood is the first publicly announced Devicescape customer with an app-based telco proposition, a market expansion which complements Devicescape’s existing operator customer base. The partnership reflects both the unique versatility of the CVN as a strategic connectivity asset, and the increasing momentum and popularity enjoyed by non-traditional voice and messaging apps.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
