BURLINGTON, Mass., June 24, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Kwicr today announced it was named to the FierceWireless "Fierce 15," a highly respected distinction that recognizes the top 15 privately-held wireless companies each year. FierceWireless' longest running feature, the "Fierce 15" celebrates those companies that best champion innovation and creativity, even in the face of intense competition.
Companies are evaluated on their technology, products and services, business plans and vision, and their potential to change the wireless industry. FierceWireless announced the 2015 "Fierce 15" earlier this month.
"FierceWireless editors meet and speak with hundreds of wireless companies every year, including a wide range of startups. Whenever we speak to new companies, we're always thinking about whether they have the potential to be 'Fierce 15' winners," said Phil Goldstein, editor of FierceWireless. "These are the companies that are improving or reshaping the industry. Even though the U.S. wireless industry is maturing and consolidating, there is still a great deal of innovation occurring."

Kwicr's inclusion in the "Fierce 15" is a recognition of the power of its Mobile Delivery Network (MDN), a solution that improves the performance of mobile apps across any cellular or Wi-Fi network and on any Android or iOS device. By delivering dramatically faster upload and download speeds and predictable throughput, mobile app owners can ensure high-quality experiences for users of their mobile apps, including those for streaming video, streaming audio, file sharing, social media, e-commerce and the Internet of Things. The MDN includes powerful analytics that enable app owners to gain unprecedented visibility into the performance of their apps, as well as the ability to control them in granular detail.
The MDN empowers app owners to control the quality of delivery and to effectively monetize the products and services high-performance mobile apps make possible. Users experience rich, high-definition video, crisp audio, responsive content loading, and fast content uploads while using mobile apps of all kinds and on any network.
Notably, Kwicr's MDN complements existing content delivery networks (CDNs) – doing for mobile broadband what CDNs did for the Internet backbone. On average, the MDN delivers app data 30 percent faster than networks that utilize a CDN alone, with far higher performance gains – up to 180 percent or more – occurring when mobile broadband performance wanes.
"The Internet wasn't designed with a mobile-first world in mind, nor could its creators have conceived of the demand for streaming, rich media content we are seeing today," said Sean Welch, president and CEO of Kwicr. "With traditional TCP, app owners are powerless in a mobile environment and can do everything right only to have their users abandon them when video quality diminishes or uploads and downloads simply take too long. With our MDN, these same owners can control the performance of their apps on any cellular or Wi-Fi network."
To see how Kwicr works, interested mobile app owners and developers are invited to take a free 45-day test-drive. Getting started is easy. Users only need to download Kwicr's software development kit and follow the instructions to integrate it with their mobile app. For more information visit Kwicr.com, email [email protected] or call +1 844-GO-KWICR (844-465-9427).
