Join us for this public event, held on 13 May 2017, at 1 pm in Vancouver Hack Space, where Luka Mustafa, a Slovenian based, London educated Shuttleworth Foundation Fellow, founder of open hardware Institute IRNAS, will be presenting open source open hardware networking solution KORUZA and other open hardware projects he and his team have been developing in the past few years.
KORUZA is first open source, easily scalable wireless optical communication system for urban environments, which is circumventing a whole set of limiting factors: cable laying expenses, regulations, territory ownership, frequency congestion etc. Using transceivers ten times cheaper than other optical connectors, KORUZA can be set-up cheap and in a matter of hours. It can connect locations up to 150 m apart, empowering last-mile networking with 1 Gbps and 10 Gbps throughputs.
Luka Mustafa is a Shuttleworth Foundation Fellow, working full-time on wireless optical system KORUZA development at Institute IRNAS Rače in Slovenia that he founded in 2014, as well as being a PhD student at University College London. He leads a multidisciplinary team developing open systems ranging from CNC machines to electronics and fibre optic systems, promotes and deploys open wireless networks in wlan slovenia project and manages national and international wireless backbones.
At Institute IRNAS Rače we strive to apply the vast scientific knowledge to everyday reality by creating effective and affordable systems. We believe in an open-source world and sharing and we aim to empower the world with technologies that improve lives, let that be an advanced communication system or a simple everyday utensil. We are non-profit, rewarding the ones that create, always exploring new projects and ideas. All our work is published under open-source open-hardware licenses.
