The GSMA Award-winning Living Systems Connection Agent (LS/CA) connection manager delivers seamless handover between fixed-line, 3G/4G, and Wi-Fi connections and frees up cellular capacities through smart Wi-Fi offload. LS/CA provides mobile users with the always-best connection for their location, device, and needs. It gives MNOs a flexible white-label platform with full control to deliver a consistent, fully branded customer experience across all networks.
LS/CA takes complete care of network selection, access connection, and connection handover based on scenarios defined by the mobile operator, enterprise system administrator, or end-user.
By intelligently offloading traffic from congested cells to operator-owned or third-party Wi-Fi infrastructures, LS/CA actively helps maintain quality of service and quality of user experience.
With the unique Living Systems SmartShift Mobile IP component at its core, LS/CA manages a completely transparent and seamless transition of all IP traffic between cellular and Wi-Fi networks. It enables reliable session continuity by preserving the device's IP address throughout network changes and thus ensures that applications such as VPN and streaming video or cloud-based services can run without a glitch.
With LS/CA, the subscriber consumes a single bundle of connectivity and enjoys maximized bandwidth without any service disruption or interruption.
