At this week’s M2M World Congress in London, Mosaik Solutions introduced a service that lets users determine wireless network availability at hundreds or thousands of locations in minutes. It is aimed at mobile operators, M2M companies and IoT services providers.
Called Network Validator, it is the latest in a line of global network coverage services from the Memphis-based company.
“With the explosion of M2M and IoT solutions, new entrants into the space are demanding better network intelligence,” said Bryan Darr, founder and CEO of Mosaik Solutions. “Mosaik continues to expand its offerings to address the diverse and complex network challenges experienced by large and small companies within our dynamic industry. Network Validator is another example of how we are providing network intelligence.”
As well as being available as an independent, web-based service, its API is available as a feature in the company’s MapElements and CellMaps services. Users can search for a single location or simply upload a file of global locations into Network Validator, where it will process each location against Mosaik’s coverage databases or client-specific coverage layers. The resulting analysis empowers each user with real-time information to respond to sales opportunities and RFPs, or leverage as a service tool for customer inquiries and technical support.
For more than 26 years, Mosaik has provided mapping, network intelligence and spatial analytics services to the telecoms industry. It maintains what it claims is the largest global database of approximately 1800 mobile networks and it is evaluated and updated at least once per quarter.
