How to Utilize Pause and Resume Feature on “SmartIO”

March 6, 2015

Our Telco retail customers as well as end consumers frequently mentioned their frustration while transferring pictures and videos in retail stores or at homes. The biggest concern had always been the amount of time it takes to transfer large files. Once the transfer was started, the user had to stay with the devices till the transfer is finished which could potentially tie up the user for several minutes. This situation was especially undesireable for 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.
