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.

GreenSoft 2021.2 now available

The latest version of Green PI’s software (GreenSoft 2021.2) features new edge applications and services for greater speed, security, and user experience. What is new?

Talk: New Push-to-Talk (PTT) application distributed into Green PI’s edge network nodes;

Storage: The edge-based file sharing service is faster;

My Network: Offers high accuracy geo-location service;

Security: Merge with latest operating system version;

Among others…

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 creating a dynamic and self-configuring wireless edge network with quality of service (QoS). Green PI users and devices access and share a common edge cloud with edge-based services among which: Talk, Storage, Chat, IoT management tools, etc. Green Communications releases new versions of the GreenSoft regularly.

For more information on GreenSoft 2021.2 and the next coming versions, please contact us. Green PI users can request the upgrade via their customer interface.

Green PI explained in a short video

Green PI is a low carbon impact Internet and Edge Cloud platform providing digital services to users and smart devices with speed, mobility, high resiliency, and data sovereignty. Watch Green PI in action on this short video.

What is Green PI?

Green PI consists in:
1.Edge network of mobile nodes
A node is either a smart device equipped with Green PI’s software (the GreenSoft) or one of the embedded IoE platforms offered by Green Communications. Nearby nodes communicate directly and form an autonomous wireless Internet infrastructure offering high-bandwidth connectivity to end-users and devices;

2. Edge cloud distributed near users
Green PI federates the computing capacity of edge network nodes to create an edge cloud distributed near end-users and devices. An edge cloud can count tens network nodes and hundreds client devices. One may scale up the edge cloud federating edge clouds operating in multiple locations and creating an Internet of Edge (IoE);

3. A set of low carbon impact digital services
Green PI’s edge cloud hosts digital services at the data source to ensure, low latency, quick server response time and resilience to Internet interruption. Edge-based services are distributed in each Green PI’s network nodes to allow nodes’ mobility without disrupting a service. The short travel of bits of information from source to server through the edge cloud releases the Internet network from unnecessary traffic and save on datacenter resources. Thus, participating significantly to reducing Internet’s carbon footprint.

Three Fire Departments Will Deploy Green PI as a Direct Communications System

Green Communications is awarded of the Innov’up Tech & Rescue Experimentation call for projects and wins the privilege to deploy and experiment Green PI as a direct communications and edge system with firefighters of Essonne, Yvelines and Seine-et-Marne fire departments.

Since no existing solutions nor infrastructures are proposing a direct communication mode, firefighters could encounter problems to share voice, video and data during interventions. Public and private infrastructure-based networks could be destroyed, inactive, attacked or jammed. The direct multihop and edge solution proposed by Green Communications is moving along with the firefighters for facilitating rescue interventions in constrained environments.

We would like to thanks Atraksis, the Île-de-France region and Bpifrance who organized this call for projects and to congratulate all the winners McLloydMoten TechnologiesEVERSATArt Graphique & Patrimoine. We are now looking forward to starting the deployments.

For more information on the Innov’up Tech & Rescue Experimentation call for projects, please, follow the link. For more information on Green PI and its Public Safety applications please, contact us.

5G: All You Need to Know

At a time when 5G is being deployed around the world, the book “should we be afraid of 5G”, written by Guy Pujolle, Emeritus Professor at Sorbonne University, pioneer in high-speed networking and, Co-Founder and President of Green Communications, answers all the questions that arise from a technological, social, environmental and political point of view to unravel the true from the false and understand everything about 5G!

Guy Pujolle is an eminent expert in computer science and telecommunications. He was at the origin of several inventions and important patents like DPI, Wi-Fi controller, and virtual networks. Guy Pujolle received several prices for his work and publications, in particular the Grand Prix of French Academy of Sciences in 2013.

Green Communications’ Swarm of Drones Project Was Awarded a Seal of Excellence by the European Commission

Swarms of drones usually operate under the coverage of GNSS* and LTE/ Wi-Fi infrastructures. Green Communications innovates and creates fully autonomous swarms that can operate without infrastructure and in GNSS denied environment. Thus, using the Green PI technology combined with Artificial Intelligence (AI). Green Communications’ solution of swarm of autonomous drones was scored as a high-quality project and was awarded a Seal of Excellence by the European Commission.

For more information on the Green PI technology and its application on drones, please, contact us.

Green Communications connects the firefighters of Ille-et-Vilaine (France)

The call for tenders of the fire department of Ille-et-Villaine (SDIS 35) for a stand-alone Wi-Fi mesh network is attributed to Green Communications.

In a context of natural or man-made disaster, rescue forces need connectivity to make use of the SINUS application for the counting and identification of victims. Green Communications proposes a rapid deployable Wi-Fi infrastructure composed of a set of weatherproof Wi-Fi mesh nodes featuring 19 hours of battery life based on its Green PI low power and lightweight mesh devices.

Zero carbon Internet showcased at Viva Technology 2018 with Green Communications technology

Imagine a world where connectivity is everywhere and has zero impact on the environment. This is happening now. The concept will be showcased at Viva Technology 2018, May 24-26 in Paris by Orange in partnership with Green Communications.

At the entrance of VivaTech show, visitors will discover a Green PI connected station offering public WiFi hotspot and proximity services available on a local web portal.

The standalone station is solar powered, mobile and connects to Internet and with other connectivity stands wirelessly so that one can deploy one or a group of stations with no constrains.

The web portal offers local content and collaborative applications (chat, video, file sharing, etc.) hosted close to the end user to increase the navigation speed and reduce the energy resources used to reach vicinity information.

Green PI is the low carbon impact Internet infrastructure developed by Green Communications. Green PI is composed of low power mesh hotspots with edge cloud and local applications and services.
