InterDigital, Inc. (NASDAQ: IDCC), a wireless research and development company, and SemperCon, an application development company, today announced the launch of CirrusCon, a new cloud-based application developer platform that enables mobile and over-the-top application developers to add bandwidth and connectivity management to their applications. The API platform will be featured by the companies at the upcoming Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, February 25-28.
SemperCon’s new mobile development platform offers a cloud-based API platform that makes it easy for developers to address the most pressing technical hurdles challenging the launch of successful mobile applications while enhancing their applications with new features aimed at creating new revenue streams. The CirrusCon platform, which features InterDigital’s Smart Connectivity & Mobility Service (SCMS), lets mobile application developers quickly build mobile applications with bandwidth management, increased mobile security, robust connections and enhanced analytics. Using the CirrusCon platform, mobile application developers can focus on their core functionality and the unique differentiators of their applications while leaving difficult bandwidth, connection and security issues to be handled by the platform.
“One of the challenges in mobile application development is that the application does not control the underlying connectivity. CirrusCon enables developers to build in connectivity control features, such as aggregating various connectivity channels to handle bursts in data need, offloading non-essential data to public or WiFi networks, or segmenting data streams based on application features,” said Allen Proithis, Executive Vice President, InterDigital Solutions.
The CirrusCon platform has already enabled some beta customers to bring their applications to the next level:
CirrusCon will be highlighted at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona with InterDigital’s APPeritivo mobile application, which is available on Apple iTunes and Google Play. Using APPeritivo, MWC attendees will be able to order drinks on location at InterDigital’s booth, and the application will manage premises verification and smart connectivity that is completely transparent to the user.
