Terranet

About

The company’s very first patent was filed in 2004, a technical solution with a vision to improve communications in developing countries with desolate environments . At the time, TerraNet initiated partnerships with both network operators and mobile manufacturers, including Huawei, Sony and India’s Tata DoCoMo in order to test and develop the most optimal commercial applications for our technology. Today, the company’s vision is to enable an uninterrupted user experience for everyone regardless of internet connectivity.

Several years of research and development resulted in the launch of new Wi-Fi standards such as 802.11S and Wi-Fi AwareTM, which TerraNet’s software platform is built around. The Wi-Fi AwareTM standard was first launched by the Wi-Fi Alliance in 2015 and adopted by Google in the 2017 Android O MR1 release.   The standardization accelerated the growing interest for the company and our technology.

Today TerraNet is uniquely positioned with patented software algorithms that allow intelligent machine-to-machine communication and streaming of data including bandwidth-high-definition media completely independent of mobile networks or other hotspot-dependent networks.

The company’s other focus market is on IoT, Internet of Things, the collective term for the development of devices with small chips and processors that enables communication between machines. The industry is expected to grow rapidly and analysts estimate that the spread of IoT devices will increase to well over 30 billion connected devices by 2020.
