CASE STUDY

Innovation in Broadband AnD The-AlwAys Connected Home

ABOUT CLIENT:
IOPSYS is a Swedish supplier of software solutions for smart connected homes that address products such as Wi-Fi, routers, Wi-Fi extenders, mesh systems, fiber termination boxes, and the majority of home IoT devices.

CLIENT NEED:
IOPSYS needed to build a team of engineers with extensive knowledge and experience in connectivity, Open-Source, Wi-fi, and hardware platforms for gateways/routers to develop the open-source operating system for IoT gateways.

Solution

Flexible and innovative software solution for IoT gateways and Wi-Fi devices based on OpenWrt. The platform works with multiple hardware vendors and operators, enabling broadband operators to offer next-generation services in the connected home.
It combines technology from the OpenWrts with carrier-class requirements from the Broadband and IoT industry. It combines technology from the OpenWrts with carrier-class requirements from the Broadband and IoT industry.





The challenge

The main challenge in developing a commercial open source operating system was assuring its platform independence and scalability. The first project challenge was adapting different SDK’s from chipset vendors to OpenWrt standards.









Our Services

We built and provided the team of embedded software developers with competencies within connectivity, open-source, VoIP, Wi-Fi and hardware platforms for gateways/routers. We started with three people team, which grew as the project developed. Now it consists of 8 embedded software developers: four engineers working with Wi-Fi and all around it, two working with VoIP, and three developers working with the platform, making the operating system run on the hardware.

The first project goal was moving the platform from the original SDK to OpenWrt. The next steps was to extend and adapt iopsysWRT system with support for new platforms. Then the team took responsibility for Hardwar Abstraction Layer, Wi-Fi, BSP, and VoIP.
