QoD Mobile API

The standardised QoD Mobile API allows you to control your customers mobile connectivity so you can focus on creating the best possible user experiences.

This exposure allows you to develop new functionalities for your services that require a more precise control of the connectivity quality. This makes it easier to improve the user experience regardless of the telecommunications carrier to which the customer subscribes.

What can it be used for?

Thanks to the integration of the QoD Mobile API, it is possible to develop new services that require advanced network capabilities, in terms of availability, security or performance (latency and throughput). Thus, it is possible to develop new functionalities while ensuring the correct functioning and a stable connection for your users.

In addition, QoD Mobiles Unified API Access feature guarantees you access to the network capabilities of different carriers through a single, standardised interface.

CUSTOMER NETWORK OPTIMISATION

The QoD Mobile service enables you to activate the network configuration that best suits the needs of your applications in real time. This means, for example, the ability to trigger a short pulse with high throughput or temporary control over jitter or maximum latency.

SEAMLESS USER EXPERIENCE

Your customers will enjoy the enhanced services you build with the capabilities offered by the QoD Mobile service without noticing that their network has been modified. This allows you to sell advanced functionalities making it easier for users to avoid unwanted network problems.

INCREASED CUSTOMER SATISFACTION

Integrating the QoD Mobile API allows you to offer a service that reduces the number of complaints from your customers due to network problems, as you can control and monitor network conditions and adapt to them whenever your applications are used. This will improve the relationship you have with your customers, avoiding bad experiences and complicated procedures.

SIMPLIFIED INTEGRATION

As it is a standardised API, you can integrate the QoD Mobile service into your applications without the need to customise implementations for each carrier. This simplifies the development process and reduces time to market.

QUICK AND EASY INTEGRATION

With the QoD service, you can easily configure your clients network with just a couple of lines of code. You wont have to guess and discover the network capabilities available to your users and you can focus on whats most important to your business.

DEVELOPMENT TOOLS

The channel partners distributing the QoD service have worked with the telcos to unify the development experience, so that you can consume the service in the same way you are used to with other services. They have all the SDKs, management, monitoring and troubleshooting tools you may need.

Digitalisation of industry 4.0

Industry and the manufacturing sector have shown a continuous growth trend in recent years, thanks to digitalisation and automation. These processes pose many challenges to this type of business, such as the flexible production of customised products, electrification of industries, reliable supply chain tracking or drone delivery. Video playback capability and constant real-time connectivity are key to the successful development of such processes, applied, for example, to the evolution of digital twins, drone control and automated surveillance systems with robots and AGVs. The QoD Mobile API provides the ability to interact with the network in real time to facilitate better traffic quality and more reliable and consistent connectivity.

New design and construction models

Augmented reality offers significant value in the fields of construction and design, as it facilitates the visualisation of architectural designs superimposed on real environments, improving project understanding and decision making. It also allows construction teams to detect potential problems before construction starts, reducing errors and costs; or to streamline communication and collaboration between architects, engineers and contractors. It also improves the safety of construction processes by providing accurate instructions and hazard alerts.

The integration of the QoD Mobile API in different services designed to improve these processes, facilitates the ability to deliver high throughput to devices by improving the user experience and ensuring application performance.

Streaming with AI

Cinfo is a company specialising in artificial intelligence, 5G and video technologies that aims to democratise the production of all types of events. With this vision, it wanted to create an affordable system for high-quality streaming, using AI-controlled cameras to simplify workflows and reduce errors and costs. These solutions are very sensitive to connectivity, latency of quality parameters and jitter. By integrating the QoD Mobile API, it makes it easy for its AI to process frames at the FPS rate of the capture stream during a live event. The result is a live sports broadcast, captured by AI, with no video freeze and no loss of pixels or frames.
