Brand’s Apollo ‘Pocket PC’ solution delivers superior performance to the mobile user, by using compression techniques. Brand compresses the data being sent and received, which substantially increases connection speeds and reduces the amount of data being sent. This also results in significant cost savings. Brand can improve speeds up to tenfold, significantly improving internet access and file downloads. The performance and usability are also dramatically improved by the unique recovery protocol, which intelligently re-connects the session if the call is lost or broken.
