14 November 2019 at imec, Leuven. The “Wireless Community”, an initiative created by imec, had its 10 years celebration. ORCA project showed the openwifi demo successfully during the workshop of “The Future of Wireless Technology”.
The openwifi demo had many visitors, such as Airbus, Proximus (biggest mobile operator in Belgium), many imec and KU Leuven researchers and SMEs. Visitors used their cellphone to connect our openwifi AP and accessed internet smoothly.
People expressed strong interests and believed openwifi could be very useful on many research topics, since it will be the 1st “open source Wi-Fi chip design”. They are looking forward to the day of openwifi open source code going online, and eager to try it out in their Wi-Fi related research activities.
