Netgem into Mobility with PlugnSurf buy

June 18, 2012

Netgem has confirmed its acquisition of PlugnSurf – a company that has developed and marketed the WOBE, the first mobile connectivity device to incorporate a patented technology for automatic off-loading between mobile data (3G/4G) and WiFi networks.

The integration of PlugnSurf will expand Netgem’s existing product offer. It will allow Netgem to help telecom operators optimise their investments in mobile data networks. The innovative WiFi off-load technology mastered and patented by PlugnSurf is essential to alleviate the growing congestion on mobile networks, particularly for video streaming.
