Under the Hood of Vendor Unlocked Whitebox APs
Posted by Sudhan Kayarkar on Apr 17, 2017

The data center industry has embraced hardware/software disaggregation promoted by Open Compute Project (OCP) in servers and switches. It brings benefits of cost, flexibility and innovation. OCP has now started a working group called Campus, Branch and Wireless (CBW) to extend disaggregation concept to enterprise networking. For additional details on OCP/CBW whitebox WLAN AP, see this #wlpc 2017 video presentation by @CHemantC. Mojo Networks has been an active contributor to the CBW group. At the recently concluded Open Compute Summit in Santa Clara, we demonstrated open install of Mojo WLAN software on the latest Qualcomm 802.11ac Wave 2 AP platforms manufactured by 3 different hardware vendors (ODMs).

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 Future of WiFi Starts Here

I am thrilled to share that following a successful trial with Global 2000 customers over the past year, Mojo is rolling out its new business strategy for enterprise WiFi to all users. Through our esteemed channel partners, our customers can now purchase our state-of-the-art WiFi hardware without a pricey markup...none, zero, no mark up...period. Customers can buy our access points just the way they always have – from Mojo partners – along with our leading cloud service to manage those access points. The access points, and thus the overall solution, is now (a lot) less costly. This revolutionary direct-to-market business model lets users save up to 50% over traditional WiFi vendors.

Accton heralds the future as they open networking standards for WiFi

Since launching in 2003, we’ve been committed to advancing innovation and integrity in the digital age. We take pride in creating — and constantly improving upon — cloud-managed WiFi that can meet the world’s increasing demand for seamless connectivity. We recognize that the industry has many hurdles to overcome, and as such are always excited to see fellow tech visionaries sharing our values and goals — enterprises that are focused on the present and the future needs of an increasingly cloud-first world.
