Ookla is a well-known Internet intelligence company behind Speedtest and Downdetector, while Mapbox is a first-class mapping and geolocation cloud platform for developers. The two companies currently Global cooperation is underway to create a breakthrough network-aware mapping solution. The two parties will cooperate on the technical level to provide their customers with new and important value.
Ookla and Mapbox are in a unique position in terms of geospatial network analysis and connectivity-aware mapping functions with their respective comprehensive capabilities and expertise.
Ookla collects hundreds of millions of network performance and quality measurement data around the world through its Speedtest platform every day. Similarly, Mapbox enables developers to build real-time location awareness in its applications, which are accessed by more than 600 million users every month.
This large audience group enables Mapbox to dynamically maintain maps around the world and continuously update them through consumer feedback. Combining the elements of these platforms can produce geospatial intelligence with precise location accuracy that can demonstrate the availability and functionality of network connections around the world.
Ookla’s unparalleled network intelligence will enhance the performance of Mapbox products
Mapbox customers will get a solution to enable connection awareness , opening up unlimited potential for complex network awareness products. Mapbox’s Navigation SDK and the recently released Mapbox Dash integrate Ookla’s network intelligence, so it will maintain operations in areas where connectivity is lacking or not available.
With Speedtest technology enabled, Mapbox will gain visibility into predictive connectivity, thereby optimizing routes, and being able to pre-load directions or other relevant data before entering areas with reduced network capabilities.
For example, Mapbox’s leading application, Straightaway , used for large-scale optimal planning of delivery routes , uses Mapbox’s Navigation SDK to pair a long list of addresses with real-time traffic data, saving several hours a day. With the increase of Ookla’s network intelligence, the route will be further optimized, thereby maximizing the network connectivity of each transportation.
Peter Sirota, CEO of Mapbox, said: “Ookla’s high-resolution network coverage data is a perfect complement to the Mapbox positioning platform. We are very happy to work with Ookla to explore the integration of its rich connectivity data into our API, SDK and The multiple methods in the app can provide drivers with a safer experience even in the environment with the highest disconnection rate and improve the work efficiency of professional couriers.”
Mapbox’s geospatial expertise and capabilities support Ookla’s enterprise solutions
Understanding and optimizing network performance is one of the most difficult challenges faced by operators and authorities. Even knowing that the network provides users with sufficient connectivity areas can often become an obstacle. This is where Ookla’s enterprise solutions come in.
It reveals the otherwise opaque network performance prospects and can help the industry analyze and improve the network. Mapbox’s world-class expertise, mapping and geographic data solutions are being widely used to develop innovative features in Ookla solutions. Imagine the scene where Mapbox’s next-generation 3D map function is integrated into the network analysis view of the Cell Analytics building .
Doug Suttles, co-founder and CEO of Ookla, said: “Mapbox is Ookla’s preferred geolocation platform. Our consumer and enterprise Speedtest solutions are accustomed to using this platform, and we are further integrating Mapbox’s functionality into our In all kinds of work, we are very happy to cooperate with such an innovative company and support its further expansion into the automotive and logistics fields.”
Mapbox is also an important partner of Ookla for Good ™, a program that aims to provide free insights and expertise to organizations seeking to improve public lives through Internet access.
In the process of cooperation, the two companies are committed to bringing maximum benefits to consumers and businesses, while maintaining the highest standards of user privacy and security. More relevant details will be announced when the partnership results.
