WorldVue Announces Partnership With OpenWiFi

HOUSTON—WorldVue announced a partnership with OpenWiFi to enable global deployment of Telecom Infra Project (TIP) OpenWiFi solutions. Through this partnership, WorldVue will integrate OpenWiFi’s open-source technology into its WiFi solutions, allowing for flexibility and the ability to streamline network operations. This is done using TIP OpenWiFi-certified software and hardware, as well as additional hardware from other manufacturers.

“We believe wireless connectivity is a major catalyst for economic growth and industry development,” said Robert Grosz, president and COO of WorldVue. “Embracing OpenWiFi allows us to break free from vendor lock, rapidly innovate in the wireless space developing deep integrations with mission-critical applications, and offer our clients the most flexible and lowest total cost of ownership.”

Launched in 2021, OpenWiFi is a community-developed open-source platform designed to lower the cost of developing and operating WiFi networks. The platform’s approach to WiFi creates an open-source disaggregated technology stack without vendor lock-in, creating a cost-effective way to deploy connectivity in use cases. OpenWiFi was created through the Telecom Infra Project (TIP), a global community of companies and organizations driving open and disaggregated infrastructure solutions to advance global connectivity. The OpenWiFi community currently includes more than 300 participants, including service providers, OEMs, ODMs, software ISVs, system integrators, silicon vendors, and industry organizations.

“We’re proud to partner with an industry leader like WorldVue to amplify our impact further and achieve our mission of closing the digital divide,” adds Jack Raynor, chairman, OpenWiFi Program Group. “The WiFi industry benefits from disruptors like WorldVue who go above and beyond to enhance their offerings with an open-source solution.”
