Nicola De Carne
CEO – Wi-Next
Speaks at ID WORLD on Wireless Identification
After several important rules in Digital Comunication Agencies, Nicola De Carne started IpWorld in January 2003.
From 2003 until now, IpWorld has designed and developed several digital communication platforms and solutions for big companies, such as Philip Morris, Unilever, Coca Cola, WIND Telecomunications, and McDonald’s.
In January 2007, as a result of the scientific collaboration with the Polytechnic of Turin, he started Wi-Next, a company specialized in Wi-Fi Mesh solutions that was acquired in January 2010 from Carpaneto Sati Group.
De Carne is now the CEO and Head of Business Strategy of Wi-Next. He is also a teacher at Il Sole 24 ore Business School.
“WIRELESS SENSOR MESH NETWORK, FROM CARRIER OF DATA TO AN ECOSYSTEM OF SERVICES ON WIRELESS NETWORKS”
In the last 15 years, the telecommunications market has witnessed a relentless spread of Wi-Fi networks driven in one hand from the worldwide standardization of technology and in the other hand from the impressive diffusion of end user devices (smartphone, cameras, tablet, TV, etc. ) able to connect easily to Wi-Fi networks.
With the LTE technologies, intended to impose itself on the market within the next 10 years, the Wi-Fi will play an important role in the creation of specialized local wireless broadband networks.
An important opportunity will be given from Wi-Fi solutions able to interact with the surrounding environment and with users in order to modify and modular services on the network on the basis of the real operational requirements and layout.
This is the Wi-Fi Sensor Mesh Network, intelligent wireless solutions able to integrate short/medium range wireless technologies (bluetooth and zigbee) as long-haul ( 3G and 4G ) for environmental monitoring through meshes of sensors and switches for several advanced application, for example, access control, security and energy control.
The Wi-Fi Sensor Mesh Network is the perfect support for applications of energy savings by allowing important cost reductions and improving the Return on Investment (Roi) of Wireless Networks.
