The promise of 802.11ax – What should we expect?
Posted by Jatin Parekh on Jun 18, 2018

What is new in 802.11ax
802.11ax promises a lateral progression of the WiFi standard. Until now, all new WiFi specifications were focused on improving the peak data rates. 802.11ax takes a side step and promises higher efficiency rather than higher peak rates. It promises to improve the total throughput in a cell and deliver more data to the clients rather than try to improve the speed at which the data is transmitted. 802.11ax features will be available in 2.4 GHz band as well (as opposed to 802.11ac which was available only in 5GHz).

Open WiFi Success at OCP Summit 2018
Posted by Robin Jellum on Mar 23, 2018

I have been around the networking business long enough to remember the early days of the InterOp trade show, before it became N+I and the other variants. The two things I remember most about it was laying out a thick Ethernet cable the length of the show for the network backbone, and the excitement that we were part of changing the world.

Wireless LAN Pros - Phoenix 2018
Posted by Robin Jellum on Mar 1, 2018

The Wireless LAN Pros conference in Phoenix last week was a great event. Thank you Keith Parsons for routinely organizing some of the smartest minds in WLAN.  I was lucky enough to be selected to present to that august group on why I believe every access point should include a 3rd, non-access, WiFi radio. 

Natural Language Interface for Mojo Cognitive WiFi
Posted by Murthy Jvr on Feb 20, 2018

You may have experience asking the digital assistant on your smartphone to schedule a meeting or provide weather update. What if you could have a similar assistant to ask about the overall health of the network, debug client issues or take corrective actions?  

Telugu bug impacting WiFi
How the iOS Telugu bug impacts WiFi 
Posted by Bhupinder Misra on Feb 15, 2018

The latest Apple bug, in which one Telugu character can crash a user's Messages app on any iOS device, also affects WiFi networks.  

If a malicious user creates a WiFi network with the specific Telugu character in the SSID (network name), it crashes the WiFi app (Settings --> WiFi) on iPhones, iPads, and other iOS devices. In our testing, it also renders the menu bar WiFi settings unusable on Macbook laptops. 

It Just Works!
Posted by Robin Jellum on Feb 12, 2018

I just watched the Marysville Schools video case study. "It just works", "Plug and play" were the words that the IT Director and Network Administrator used to describe Mojo Networks WiFi. It is great to see an amazing vision come to fruition.

It reminded me of the Steve Jobs quote: “Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it’s worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains.”

I fell in love with Chattanooga 
Posted by Lisa Garvey on Jan 22, 2018

Was it the seriously good chicken-fried steak at the all-night CityCafe after 12 hours of delayed ice-storm travel? (Just me and the nice cops at 4am.)  Was it being featured on the local ABC news broadcast because I was there to judge the Alexathon? Was it the abundance of great locally-brewed IPAs, or the number of friendly people who smiled and said “hi,” just walking down the street? Or maybe the fact that almost every restaurant serves fried pickles?
