The emergence and increased uptake of smartphones and mobile devices has changed the way consumers access the Internet. Mobile
Handheld users today have the luxury of multi-radio handsets that gives them a lot more wireless access network options. Consumers
expect devices to be intelligent enough to connect them to the most preferred networks or optimized networks (3G, 3.5G, WiMAX, LTE &
WiFi) automatically. They are also exposed to a wide range of internet-based applications that they are accustomed to use on the move.
With the increased uptake on smartphones and internet-based applications, Operators faced with congestion on its cellular network can
also offload data services to non-cellular networks to free up valuable 3G network resources.

Intelligent Connection Policies
The Profile Manager follows a set of inbuilt connection policies that governs which network to be attached.
These policies are configured to specific criteria such as pre-set priority, network availability, signal strength
thresholds and location. Operators can customize these rules based on their own internal business
requirements.

Location-based Profiles
The Profile Manager is integrated with Google maps and on-device A-GPS receiver to allow consumers to tag
their connection profile. This provides a location-based profile that simplifies the connectivity selection.

Session Persistence
The Mobile IP component within ensures that there is a single IP address used when a device switches
between networks, ensuring an uninterrupted experience. Greenpacket’s Mobile IP implementation is suitable Connection Manager

for both Make Before Break and Break Before Make scenarios.

For operators, this experience goes beyond than just to provide means to optimize geographical coverage. It
provides network, applications and content interoperability across different networks within a single device,
revolutionizing services creation for operators, service providers and device manufacturers.

Operators are able to enhance user connectivity experience by first understanding consumer’s connectivity
behavior. ICM Mobile has a reporting feature that works together with the Intouch Reporting Manager to gather
history of user connection activities and device information in a centralized location. Reports can be generated
and used by Operators to optimize their service offering or even generate new revenue through lifestyle driven
value-added services. Location-Based Profile

Reporting server¹ allows access to accurate data pertaining to the ICM Mobile platform to assist in unique
