June Tech Roundup from EPS Global
#WorldWiFiDay 2023 celebrated innovations and new projects that help bridge the digital divide worldwide. One such innovation is OpenWiFi, a groundbreaking initiative from the Telecom Infra Project. It's more than just a technology; it's a movement that aims to democratize internet access, particularly in areas lacking broadband connectivity, in both developed and developing countries.
Electrical co-ops were initially established to bring electricity to rural areas overlooked by larger utility companies. Now, through the power of open disaggregated networking, they are leveraging existing infrastructure to turn their hands to providing broadband. Together with IP Infusion and IP ArchiTechs, we sat down in April to discuss this topic on an episode of the Critical Lowdown, mentioned here in this insightful blog.
In Part 2, our panel of experts emphasizes the importance of making IoT security more accessible and consumable for engineers and designers, as well as the need for collaboration among industry players to tackle security challenges for connected devices. This episode covers the increasing number of cybersecurity regulations worldwide, the need for a proactive approach, and the key role organizations like EPS Global, NXP, IAR, and Future Electronics are playing in providing practical and accessible security solutions for volume production of connected devices.
In recent times, we've observed intriguing trends impacting the development of data center strategies. Building on an earlier article by UfiSpace about data center transformations adapting to the needs of the modern digital consumer, it's now fitting to explore how advanced technologies are catalyzing change in data center design and construction.
OpenWiFi is an open sourced, community-developed, disaggregated Wi-Fi software system. The system includes a cloud controller SDK and an Enterprise-grade Access Point (AP) firmware, designed and validated to work seamlessly together.
