Ammbr has been growing at a steady rate in recent months and we are excited to let you know about our progress and the hard work being put in by our ever-expanding team.
After extensive collaboration last year, the Ammbr Foundation licensed AmmbrTech to develop and manufacture the first Ammbr blockchain mesh wifi routers. AmmbrTech has demonstrated its abilities and the team has grown significantly, as we recruited experts from around the world that are committed to Ammbr’s vision.
Our team comprises of industry leaders with a wealth of experience in our various fields. But, even more importantly, our team believes in Ammbr’s vision and have already demonstrated their expertise, as well as their drive to ensure that we succeed and meet our goals with distinction, both in developing our state of the art technology as well as using that technology to empower billions of people around the world.
The hardware and software development of the Ammbr router is ongoing. To better support the strategy of collaboration with academia and existing community networks, Ammbr Research Labs has been established as a subsidiary of AmmbrTech, under the management of Dr. Arjuna Sathiaseelan in Cambridge, UK. Ammbr Research Labs brings together existing, peer-reviewed and widely acknowledged work from the diverse R&D team. The team has collectively released over a thousand peer-reviewed research publications and open source technologies. They are steadfast in setting the benchmark for blockchain based mesh networks. Several pilot trials of the technology are scheduled for Europe, Africa and Asia starting in Q2 of 2018.
We are also releasing the first commercial piece of hardware shortly – a hardware wallet capable of storing cryptographic tokens. The new device – a bitcoin hardware wallet in its first release – is scheduled for launch in Q2 2018. This hardware wallet represents the first in a line of private key management tools to ensure security and a comprehensive, self-sovereign digital identity and digital asset framework for Ammbr users.
Beyond our technological aspirations, the Ammbr Foundation is as determined as ever to engage with all stakeholders to ensure that our product finds its way into the hands of those who truly need it – the 4.1 billion people without access to reliable internet. Our governmental interactions, as well as grassroots community support for early deployment trials are going extremely well, and we are receiving wholehearted support.
Looking ahead, Ammbr is working on laying the proper foundations for the creation of a fully decentralized telecommunications network, with edge computing capabilities at scale, and an overlaying economic framework that supports a wide variety of applications across multiple sectors.
As we work towards that, we will continue to make use of our existing partnerships with several community networks. We are already working with these communities in co-designing our core platform offering. Through these networks, we hope to ensure rapid early adoption across half a million potential users within the first year.
