Connection Manager

Send Feedback

Connection Manager manages network connections for CellCore-enabled devices, regardless of the service provider used for establishing the connection. Connection Manager provides a fast and transparent way of making connection choices for an application. Users do not have to know which connection path is chosen, yet they can be assured that the most optimal path is used all the time.

Connection Manager handles many different types of connections, including connections using Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP), Remote Access Service (RAS), and Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol (PPTP). The manager can also configure proxy server settings to allow network resources through a firewall or Wireless Application Protocol (WAP) gateway.

CellCore-enabled devices can access many types of data networks, such as the Internet or a corporate network. A device can connect to each of these networks through multiple connection paths. The choice of path for a particular connection depends on cost, security, and specific network considerations for the client application.
