“Utilizing the nPhase ONE developer platform, DHWS is creating a custom Wireless Network Services (WNS) portal for Tru-Fast Wireless to enhance usability and management across their client network,” said Ed Mann, CEO for Tru-Fast. “The portal will be offered as a value-add for Tru-Fast Wireless’s clients to allow better management and monitoring of lines of service and M2M device usage. DHWS is the first to offer building custom portals based on client needs. WNS will allow Tru-Fast Wireless’s clients access to mass configuration of Verizon rate plans and related services, monitoring of cellular data usage, and access to a wide variety of service related data and change needs.”
