Securing K-12 WiFi - A Scary Movie Blog
Posted by Louise Peter on Oct 31, 2017

It is a classic urban legend horror scene - a young woman is home alone (she is usually a babysitter). She receives creepy phone calls asking "Have you checked the kids?" The babysitter calls the police and the police set up watch outside the house to keep the babysitter safe. The police trace the phone calls and to their horror, they discover that the calls are not coming from another location, but they are coming from inside the house.

Witnessing ethical train wreck after train wreck in Silicon Valley, it’s easy to conclude that the quest for success at all costs is a recent phenomenon and one limited to startups.

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.

Bringing True Disaggregation to the Network
Posted by Rick Wilmer on Oct 13, 2016

Disaggregation is a hot topic, and a major trend for data centers. Many large enterprises look for flexibility, choice, rapid deployment and cost efficiencies that disaggregation brings technology. By separating the costs of hardware from the costs of cloud software, enterprise organizations are able to find the best solutions.

Speed Wins… and Feels Really Good, Too
Posted by Rick Wilmer on Aug 10, 2016

I have a friend in Hong Kong who bought a new Lamborghini. As an automotive enthusiast I was inquisitive. Hong Kong traffic is horrendous, thus I was particularly curious about where he could actually drive his Lambo. I asked: “Where can you go fast?” In all seriousness he replied: “Why would I want to go fast? Nobody would ever see me!”

Targeting WiFi Dinosaurs
Posted by Rick Wilmer on Jul 14, 2016

Imagine 65 million years ago, a Tyrannosaurus rex looking up at the night sky. (Despite what we saw in Jurassic Park, the T. rex actually had excellent eyesight.) She might enjoy looking at the stars, and maybe one night, she saw a shooting star moving across the sky. She gave it a second glance, and probably should have paid closer attention, but continued to move on into the night.

Without Classroom WiFi, STE(A)M Doesn’t Exist
Posted by Rick Wilmer on Jun 27, 2016

Since the introduction of the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) and STE(A)M (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) movements about 10 years ago, there has been a focus on making sure that our students in the United States receive a great education to stay competitive in a worldwide market.

For me, the STE(A)M movement has a deeply personal connection. My background is in engineering and technology, my degree from Cal Berkeley is in Chemistry, which lead me to a 25-plus year career in technology. My education and career path have been very “left brain” (i.e. logical, analytical) focused. What I discovered over the years is that my “right brain” (intuitive, thoughtful, creative) not only needs a release but that giving that part of my mind regular exercise makes me better at my job.

Stop Getting Ripped Off: Don’t Overpay for Enterprise Grade WiFi Access Points
Posted by Rick Wilmer on May 12, 2016

Your current WiFi vendors are making a fortune on your back. They’re overcharging you, keeping you tied to on-premise controllers, and limiting your choices. They’re doing what’s best for them and not what’s best for you, all under the premise of “enterprise grade” and “high performance” marketing jargon.

The Future of WiFi Starts Here
Posted by Rick Wilmer on Apr 28, 2016

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.

Introducing Mojo Networks
Posted by Rick Wilmer on Jan 11, 2016

After almost a year of behind-the-scenes work, I’m proud to finally introduce Mojo Networks to the world as the next evolution of our company as we say goodbye to the AirTight Networks brand. When AirTight was founded in 2003, WiFi was starting to gain traction as a critical piece of enterprise infrastructure. There were numerous concerns about WiFi and security and AirTight pioneered a Wireless Intrusion Prevention Solution (WIPS) to bring greater integrity and safety to networking. Eventually, our customers wanted AirTight to be their all-in-one wireless solution, and in 2009 we launched our cloud-managed WiFi platform that has since been used by Fortune 500s, Global 2000s and the highest levels of government.
