Carrier-Class Quality and Security With the Ultimate in User Configurability

Medio’s third-generation platform enables mobile operators, handset OEMs, and publishers to launch and manage a broad set of new applications, content, and service offerings quickly and easily, while retaining carrier-class reliability and performance.

The Medio platform ensures the optimal presentation of mobile and Internet content, links, and other functionality based upon screen size, browser, operating system, and other device capabilities, leading to an optimal experience for the mobile device an individual customer is using.

Consumer-driven configuration of content, websites, and services has more than doubled since the rollout of the Medio platform.

“Fueled by America’s largest 4G network and faster, more compelling experiences on T-Mobile’s smartphones, our customers’ use of content, apps, and websites is exploding through their ability to find the content they desire precisely when they need it,” said Brad Duea, senior vice president, value added services, T-Mobile USA. “And we’re seeing over three times the level of engagement from customers who have taken advantage of the advanced T-Mobile services powered by Medio.”
