Securifi Announces Almond, the World's First Wireless Router for the Rest of Us

(PR Web Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) (PRWEB) February 23, 2012 Tech startup Securifi announced the world’s first touch screen Wireless router, Almond.

Slated to become available in North America in Spring 2012, Securifi’s Almond houses a 320 x 240 pixel 2.8” full-color touch screen display capable of handling all router setup and maintenance. Almond not only removes the need for the intimidating web-driven interfaces consumers have struggled with for over a decade, it removes the need for operating through a PC or Macintosh entirely. Securifi calls it the first router for the post-PC era.

“Few people would buy a microwave that can only be set up using a computer, but everyone quietly submits to this chore when setting up their wireless routers,” says Securifi CEO Rammohan Malasani. “We set out to design a full-featured WiFi access point the average person can set up and enjoy in a minute or two. The falling cost of touch screen technology has finally made it possible.” Mr. Malasani insists users of Securifi’s Almond router would never have to memorize or even write down its IP address. He also notes they’re welcome to secure the device with a password they can display as ordinary text. The result of this is that those who forget how they arrived at an exotic password like tlpWENT2m (short for “this little piggy went to market”) can simply log in via the touch screen to check it. Moreover, they can easily modify the password or other settings using the touch screen’s full QWERTY keyboard.

For all its simplicity, under the hood the Almond router sports a robust feature set. Its two internal antennas, 300Mbps MIMO throughput, full 802.11b/g/n compatibility, industry-standard WPA/WPA2 security, and basement-to-bedroom range match specs from major brands like Linksys or Netgear. Even IT departments and power users may fall in love with Almond’s blend of power, flexibility, and PC-free configuration.

Final pricing has yet to be set, but Securifi states Almond will launch at under $70.

The company believes consumers will quickly embrace Almond as the most cost-effective, user-friendly way to create and run a reliable, trouble-free N-class WiFi home network.

The Macintosh and Mac are trademarks of Apple Inc, which has no relation to Securifi or Almond. Other trademarks belong to their respective owners.

About Securifi: Founded in 2011, Securifi is an innovative global tech startup combining developer know-how from India with manufacturing expertise from Taiwan to create Routers for Humans.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.

Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services


The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.

ORACLE COMMUNICATIONS WEBRTC SESSION CONTROLLER SOLUTION

Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
