Halo Networks re-launches as AirSense Wireless
January 27, 2012
Enabling it to further build on opportunities in the emerging “Hypernet” market and drive competitive edge, Halo Networks, a London-based mobile access enablement start-up, is re-launching as AirSense Wireless.
Backed by venture capital funding from Nauta Capital and DN Capital, AirSense Wireless will be headed up by new CEO, James King, former VP of worldwide sales and marketing at Evolving Systems.
The Hypernet is increasingly gaining traction as the generic term to describe the ecosystem that results from combining the Internet with cellular and data networks. It is growing in importance due to recent exponential growth in mobile data devices and escalating user demands for seamless and transparent data access regardless of source type.
In line with this, King plans to further increase the focus of AirSense Wireless on providing seamless connectivity and connection management across the Hypernet’s Wi-Fi and cellular networks and moving beyond traditional data offloading to deliver mobile data management tailored to users’ needs.
Critically, AirSense’s technology does this while taking into account the variables of time, place, quality of available service and type of data being requested.
AirSense Wireless already has live deployments of its technology up and running in the UK and Europe and is currently working on further deployments with mobile operators and content providers across the region.
