A Mojo Customer Story: Merseyrail's Seamless WiFi Experience for Passengers
Posted by Erika Hashemi on Jun 29, 2017

Merseyrail is one of the most punctual and reliable railway networks in the UK, running 800 trains and carrying over 100,000 passengers daily.
Merseyrail is currently 14 years into a 25-year concession managed by local transport authority, Merseytravel. Concession reviews are undertaken every five years, and it was between two review dates that Kevin Lindsay, Business Systems Support Analyst for Merseyrail became aware of the spike in passenger demand for WiFi access and recognized that something had to be done.

Getting on the WiFi Freedom Trail with Open AP Standards
Posted by Hemant Chaskar on Feb 10, 2017

In the past, the “open revolution” became ingrained in our lives in the form of open source software. Now it is coming to infrastructure components in the form of hardware-software disaggregation.

What is Hardware-Software Disaggregation?

Disaggregation breaks vendor lock-in between infrastructure hardware and function-enabling software. The approach is to standardize interfaces between the two. Standardization of disaggregation started with OCP (Open Compute Project) founded by Facebook. Now, OCP has vendors across the industry as active participants. OCP’s first focus areas was scale computing. Disaggregation for data center compute and storage turned out to be a big success as many vendors today provide OCP based server technologies.

The Impact of Cognitive WiFi™
Posted by Rick Wilmer on Feb 6, 2017

Today we announced the launch of Mojo Aware™, which is based on a technology we invented called “cognitive WiFi”. It is a core technology that goes beyond anything previously devised to create a network with independent cognitive ability. Aware is a network that thinks, and drives itself to provide faultless never ending high performance connectivity. Aware exploits the limitless resources of the cloud to serve a singular purpose: to make the network run better.

Sound impossible? It’s not.

Aware harnesses the power of cloud, big data analytics, automation, and self-awareness to deliver a pristine experience to your WiFi users – all the time, in every location, regardless of what devices and applications they’re using. Cognitive WiFi visualizes the quality of experience for every one of your users and automates root cause analysis if network problems do occur. It helps you resolve problems rapidly instead of turning them into a wild goose chase. It even proactively fixes WiFi issues before they happen, but if a user does call the helpdesk with a “WiFi problem,” it tells you exactly what's going on – even if it has nothing to do with WiFi.

Why should network admins be chained to the network? Why should users have to flag WiFi issues? They shouldn’t. We think that networks should be intelligent and self-healing, which is exactly what we’ve built.

Low Power IoT Integration with WiFi Access Points
Posted by Hemant Chaskar on Jan 5, 2017

Local wireless connectivity is critical for IoT. Early IoT applications such as appliances remote control have used WiFi due to its prevalence in homes and offices. That said, WiFi is not suitable for many other IoT applications, particularly those requiring low power operation on coin batteries. Also for many IoT applications, WiFi data rates are much higher than needed. WiFi also does not provide elegant approach to create self-organizing mesh network of IoT nodes. These gaps are filled by Zigbee, Thread and BLE.

Like Peanut Butter and Chocolate… Performance and Rogue Detection is Always Better Together
Posted by Sean Blanton on Nov 18, 2016

We all know performance testing is as important a task as any in the WiFi business. We need to know the limits of our access points after all, and it certainly helps you to have all the information at hand to make the most informed decision you can. But performance testing focused soley on speed? Well, while it's important, it doesn't give you all the information you need. Because you, dear reader, are not just upgrading your WiFi for speed. You want all the bells and whistles that come standard with enterprise WiFi platforms today. And you want to turn them all on. And most importantly, you want to know if and how they affect speed.

Higher Education Case Study: Improving the WiFi Student Experience
Posted by Erika Hashemi on Nov 9, 2016

Walsh, a Catholic University of Distinction, is well known for its outstanding academic facilities, chapel, residence halls and unique educational programs. Over the last fifteen years, Walsh has seen an 80 percent growth in student enrollment; they soon discovered that their student capacity was growing too fast for their wireless network to keep up, and they needed to clear up the bottleneck. The Office of IT quickly found that their Cisco, controller-based wireless network was a significant contributing factor and could not maintain adequate throughput for the growing number of devices connecting to it. More importantly, they began to see that students and faculty were unable to stay connected at all.

What are the Realities of WiFi Troubleshooting?
Posted by Sean Blanton on Oct 18, 2016

It goes without saying that WiFi can be, how should I put it, a bit temperamental at times. To be fair, any mode of digital communication that occurs over-the-air is subject to subtle and invisible fluctuations that pop up in the surrounding environment at any time. But when you add on top of that the necessity that WiFi provide an uninterrupted, easy-to-access and (above all else) fast experience, you can begin to imagine the tremendous stress WiFi administrators must feel every day. But imagination doesn’t help us quantify the problem, nor fix it. That’s where a brand new survey by ZK Research comes into play.
