The Connection Manager API is used to centralize and automate the establishment and management of the network connections for applications on a Windows Mobile device. Applications use Connection Manager to establish or schedule a network connection, and Connection Manager handles the details of the connection. The application informs Connection Manager of the network type, such as the Internet, to use for the connection.

When an application requests a network connection, Connection Manager first retrieves all of the possible connections from a set of Connection Service Providers. Then, Connection Manager configures a set of costs with these routes and ultimately determines the optimal connection based on cost, latency, bandwidth, and other factors. Finally, Connection Manager queues the requested connection and uses the Connection Service Providers to establish the connection at the appropriate time.
