Pravala’s Application Control Engine (ACE+) is focused on improving the overall quality of the wireless experience. ACE+ seamlessly and transparently moves traffic between mobile and Wi-Fi networks providing a faster, more reliable Internet experience, while allowing users to control costs by selecting which network each app can use. ACE+ is offered as a SDK that can be integrated into existing Android and iOS application or as standalone application.
As mobile devices switch from cellular (3G/LTE) to Wi-Fi networks current sessions are broken and must be restarted on the new network. There are thousands of real-time applications that are affected by network switches such as VoIP, video and file downloads.
- No dropped calls or sessions: through seamless handover
- Improved quality: avoid blocked or congested networks
- Faster speeds: using Wi-Fi and LTE simultaneously
- Simplicity: automatic best network selection
ACE+ has been implemented by a US MNVO selling voice and data services to address the issues of dropped VOIP calls when users switch networks. The MVNO has been able to reduce customer churn by 70% since implementing ACE+.
How It Works
ACE+ ensures that calls continue without any interruption by monitoring the connection quality and duplicating packets across multiple networks when the quality of the connection degrades. This ensures a seamless & transparent experience for the user and greatly improves customer satisfaction.
