New Book: The Internet of Edges

Green PI operating at multiple locations forms an Internet of Edges (IoE). An IoE is a vast horizontal network of edge clouds operating local data in the vicinity rather than traveling data a long way to centralized clouds. IoE is a new paradigm bringing together direct communications between edge nodes, and IT concepts from Edge Computing. What is the Internet of Edges? What are the benefits for users, enterprises, data security and carbon impact of IoT infrastructures? Can an Internet of Edges be a real alternative to centralized cloud? Green Communications answers all these questions in the book Edge Networking – Internet of Edges published by ISTE Group. The French version is available here and the English one here. You might also be interested in reading the Internet of Edges white paper.

Release: GreenSoft 2022.1

The latest version of Green PI’s software (GreenSoft 2022.1) offers new and improved network management tools such as persistent logs, faster Setup application, and new certificate management interface. With GreenSoft 2022.1, Green Communications upgrades the YOI-4G/LTE to Wi-Fi 6 and releases the YOI-6-4G/LTE among other novelties.

The GreenSoft is the key enabler of Green PI. It is a set of programs from low-level to end-user web apps that allows hardware to:
– connect with nearby Green PI devices to create a dynamic and self-configuring wireless edge network with quality of service (QoS);
– and to access and share a common edge cloud with a set of edge-based services (Push-to-Talk, chat, file sharing, blockchain, etc.).
New versions of GreenSoft are being released regularly.

Green PI users can access the release note and request the upgrade via their customer interface. For any other enquiry, kindly contact us.

New YOI-6-4G/LTE

Green Communications brings to you the new YOI-6-4G/LTE router that consists of a YOI-6 (Wi-Fi 6) with a 4G modem integrated. The YOI-6-4G/LTE provides your Green PI network with a gateway to other networks (e.g. Internet) via public or private 4G, while the Wi-Fi 6 interfaces offer a high-capacity backhaul network with other YOIs and an access point to client devices. YOI-6-4G/LTE routers are embedded mesh devices featuring 320g and ≃ 7W energy consumption which make the router ideal for stand-alone, wearable and/or mobile use cases.

SDIS 95 testing Green PI’s Direct Communications and Push2Talk Service

SDIS 95 is experimenting Green PI ‘s portable equipment to set up an alternative communication system in a context of highly degraded or non-existent network, with an embedded Push2Talk application operating without a central server.

The deployment of an on-demand communication network with embedded services allows firefighters to exchange digital communications in highly constrained environment. The foreseeable use cases will be communications in caves and quarries as well as in deep and complex infrastructures where no communication network is operational.

First part of the experiment has been conclusive. In May, a second phase of tests in natural site is scheduled.

This deployment is part of the Innov’up Experimentation Tech and Rescue call for projects launched in June 2021 by Île-de-France Region, bpifrance and Atraksis.

Find the initial article on Atraksis’s website.

New Wi-Fi 6 Platform

Green Communications releases, the YOI-6, a new low lower Wi-Fi 6 platform that provides high-throughput edge services over mesh network.

The YOI-6 platform comes with Wi-Fi 6 interfaces on 2.5 and 5Ghz. One interface to create the network with other YOIs (backhaul interface) and another to connect IoT devices, smartphone, tablets, etc. (access interface). YOI-6 design is tiny (280g) and low power (6W). It can be powered with a 10Ah battery and get 18h system lifetime while being wearable.

Find YOI-6 specifications sheet here. For more information, please, contact us.

Release: GreenSoft 2022.0

The latest version of Green PI’s software (GreenSoft 2022.0) validates Wi-Fi 6, features a blockchain service, and a new Wi-Fi Scan functionality among other novelties. 

Wi-Fi 6

The new YOI-6 platform features Wi-Fi 6 for network access and backhaul. Wi-Fi 6 increases the capacity in terms of traffic transmitted through the mesh network.

Blockchain

GreenSoft now offers a blockchain service for tracking data transmitted through Green PI network. Innovative low power consensus algorithms and chain structure make the blockchain suited to fixed, embedded, and mobile use cases (e.g. mobile radio, V2X, mobile robots).

Green Communications’ software (the GreenSoft) is the key enabler of Green PI. The GreenSoft is set of programs from low-level to end-user web apps that allows hardware to connect with nearby Green PI devices to create a dynamic and self-configuring wireless edge network with quality of service (QoS); and to access and share a common edge cloud with a set of edge-based services (Push-to-Talk, chat, file sharing, blockchain, etc.). Green Communications releases new versions of the GreenSoft regularly.

Happy New Year

We would like to wish a Happy New Year to our customers, partners and colleagues. Thanks to you all, 2021 has been very successful.

You are more and more businesses and governments using Green PI Internet and edge cloud platform for connecting IoT, users, robots, etc. and enjoying autonomous edge-based services. In 2021, new customers joined our established customer base. The Green PI’s footprint expended worldwide. Our technology integrated vast governmental programs and Green PI found new applications in the field of Industrial IoT (IIoT) and healthcare.

2021 has been also fruitful in terms of product innovation. Green Communications released 3 new versions of its software (the GreenSoft) offering more edge-based services such as a Push-to-Talk, additional support for 4.9GHz, among other new features. We created the Internet of Edge (IoE), a solution that connects Green PI platforms operating at multiple locations to create the equivalent of a large cloud distributed at the edge (Find out more on our white paper). Finally, Green Communications started the development of a blockchain service to provide traceability to Green PI users’ data (more information coming soon).

We forecast 2022 to follow the same positive trend. Green Communications is already working on the release of new innovative products and services to satisfy the increasing demand of our customers. Among the expected novelties for 2022 we can point out Wi-Fi 6, Wi-Fi Halow and blockchain.

We wish you all and your organizations a healthy, prosperous, and successful year. We are looking forward to meeting you in 2022.

Forum Innovation Defense 2021 in Paris

Green Communications will present its work on blockchain applied to tactical communications at the Forum Innovation Defense (FID), November 25 to 27, 2021 in Paris.

Blockchain technology offers a wide range of new applications to ground forces. A blockchain can provide immutable traceability to any sort of data shared among groups of people, drones, robots, and vehicles deployed on the field, from health status and geo-location to AI outputs and transmissions.

However, current blockchain technology is not suited to the dynamic, embedded and resource limited network environment of tactical communications. Green Communications, with the support of the RAPID funding programme, investigated the issue and co-designed, developed and prototyped a solution in collaboration with Sorbonne University and SQUAD.

Come and visit us at the forum to get more information on our blockchain solution for tactical communications. To meet with someone of our team during the event, please, contact us.
