What has changed?
The Levl-iQ Device Context Solution
LEVL’s device context engine provides near real-time performance, quickly establishing a device’s make, model and OS version. In contrast to solutions that only use network data, LEVL-IQ uses a combination of physical layer information and machine learning to establish a device’s context. As a result, the LEVL solution is more accurate, faster, and future proofed as compared to other solutions. This unique capability also enables automated learning of new device types as they are seen on the network. No other solution today can accurately differentiate between an Apple devices that run iOS. As an example, no other solution today can accurately differentiate between an Apple devices that run iOS (Apple Watch vs. an Apple iPhone). This provides network operators increased insights on their current network operation and on what their future needs may be.
