So far this year Blu Network has been busy exhibiting at the BETT show, Venturefest, and the upcoming Mobile Learning Week. At every event we have had such fantastic response following face to face demonstration’s of the technology. The Blu Network team have therefore created a video demonstrating the technology in action for wider audiences. Led by our Founding Director, Prof. Mike Santer; understand the five key principles Blu Network was founded on and see how Blu Network empowers not only smart devices but basic phones and FM radios.
Blu Network’s five key principles:
- The content will work on devices that people have in their pockets.Even devices which don’t support Internet connectivity. Today, in sub-Saharan Africa seventy-seven percent of mobile devices are basic phones, unable to browse the internet. Blu Network bridges this digital divide. It allows even basic phones to display digital content.
- Blu Network will work even in areas where the Internet doesn’t exist.Blu Network takes a slice of the Internet, as chosen by our customers, and offlines it onto Blu Network Hubs. Deployed as a single hub, or a collection of hubs that form a wireless network.
- Blu Network hubs will work in areas with intermittent or no electricity.The efficient hubs can be solar powered or run off other renewable sources. A car battery will even power a hub. This enables easy mobility, hubs can travel to the remotest communities.
- The digital content on the hub will be completely free at the point of use.Anyone can access, browse and download the content with no charge. Removing barriers caused by expensive data and broadband. Blu Network hubs are faster than mobile providers, delivering multimedia content faster than 4G.
- Content on the hubs is safe, secure and focused.Blu Network hubs deliver a walled garden of content, focused to the needs of the community. This increase’s focus with limited resources to browse. Users will not be subject to harmful content or marketing agendas.
