SIGNIFICANTLY INCREASING THE COVERAGE AND CAPACITY OF TODAY'S NETWORKS
The M87 Edge Network flips the traditional network's power structure upside down – shifting network intelligence to the mobile device – empowering your smartphone to always seek the fastest path to the network.
Edge Network not only benefits the end user but it dramatically expands network capacity for wireless carriers without the need for additional infrastructure. In fact, M87 software works within all existing network types, allowing carriers to significantly enhance the value of their current infrastructure investments.
Radical? Yes. But given that mobile data growth is expected to increase nearly 50% every year through 2021 with over 11B devices connected to mobile networks, it's time to re-think the way networks work. That's just what we've done at M87.
M87’s EDGE Network is a software-only solution
The software creates dynamic cell relay networks, intelligently routing traffic directly among proximate mobile devices, improving the coverage and capacity of wireless networks and the quality of service for end-users.
M87 software continuously seeks to improve customers' connectivity and throughput speeds by monitoring the network environment and intelligently selecting the fastest path – either directly to the cellular network or via the device to device network.
This allows each device to connect to the heart of coverage area, giving your customers the strongest connection available and minimizing cell edge interference.
Our Edge Network product unlocks the tremendous latent capacity in existing mobile devices by adding them to the network infrastructure. There are currently over one billion smartphones in use worldwide. Our software adds these smartphones to the network infrastructure, creating a carrier-grade device to device network that increases both coverage and capacity without sacrificing security or billing accuracy.
