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.

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
