Koruza: for organic growth of wireless optical networks SL


We are happy to introduce the development of a wireless optical network system KORUZA, an innovative open-source open-hardware wireless communication system, employing a new low-cost approach to designing free-space optical network systems, enabling building-to-building connectivity with a highly collimated light beam at a capacity of 1 Gbps (1000 Mbps) at distances up to 100 m. It is designed to be suitable for home as well as professional users, enabling organic bottom-up growth of networks by eliminating the need for wired fiber connections and associated high installation costs. The simplicity of use, low-cost and compact size, allow the system to be deployed in any network.

The project will is also presented in a scientific paper Nineteenth Americas Conference on Information Systems: Mustafa, L., Thomsen, B., Reintroducing Free-space Optical Technology to Community Wireless Networks. Its author Luka Mustafa - Musti is appealing to foundations and other organizations to support him with a travel grant to attend the AMCIS2013 conference in Chicago in August 2013 and present the paper, as well as to support the project development. We are appealing to you for help in obtaining this support.
