How to Use Pause and Resume Feature of SmartIO

In the past, Telcos, retail and end customers have shown concern regarding the amount of time it took to transfer large files; as it was frustrating to clone pictures and videos in a bulk amount while you are sitting in a retail store or at home. The user had to stay with the devices till the transfer is finished that could potentially tie him up for several minutes or even hours. This situation was chiefly undesirable for the mobile phone retailers because the salesperson would monitor the data transfer in the service room for several minutes without getting a chance to interact with more customers. Among a multitude of innovative and unique features, SmartIO has also addressed this specific customer need.

Our engineering team went to the design board and came up with a simple solution to let user pause the content transfer at any time and later resume it at the time and place of their convenience. With this feature, SmartIO customers do not need to stay in the same WiFi or Cellular network. Instead you can pause the transfer in one network and resume it in another. SmartIO also frees up the geographical limitations that a hardware based content transfer solution may pose. Our customers are able to use this software anytime, anywhere as long as they have some network connectivity.
