Dr Leonard Kleinrock explains motivation behind creating Nomadix.
Nomadix is a wholly owned subsidiary of DOCOMO interTouch.
Driven by the growth of mobile computing, smart mobile devices and the proliferation of WiFi connectivity, the public access market continues to be one of the fastest growing segments in networking.
According to the most recent research, WiFi enabled devices will see an increase from over 500 million in 2009 to nearly 2 billion by 20141. Complementing this growth in WiFi devices, there are over 310,000 HotSpots deployed worldwide at the end of Q2 20103. WiFi hotspot operators are now reporting significant increases in data traffic, in some case double from 2009, due to the rapid adoption of smartphones6.
Nomadix-enabled networks allow the mobile users to transparently move between different locations (office/home/on the road) creating a truly ubiquitous Internet while allowing the providers of these networks to monetize this and build profitable, sustainable business models.
Nomadix’ products provide key patented and patent pending functionality in the deployment of these networks and can operate in both wired and WiFi networks providing maximum flexibility for the operator and the end user.
