 Project objective

It is forecasted that by 2021, 53% of users will access internet through Wi-Fi. This exponential growth in demand for wireless internet connectivity has led to the need, for companies in most business environments, to upgrade their Wi-Fi networking infrastructure.

Today, such upgrade requires extremely large budgets, which are mainly allocated to purchase vertically integrated, proprietary solutions provided by incumbent hardware vendors. Companies such as Cisco, Aruba and Ruckus/ARRIS aim at establishing lock-in barriers with high switching costs in order to make their customers dependent on them. This approach progressively increases Wi-Fi deployment costs for organizations, slows down innovation and ultimately ruins the Wi-Fi user experience.

However, this is going to change, as proprietary closed stacks that lock-in customers are destined to die out like it happened in other industries, such as computer hardware in the 80s or mobile devices more recently: Windows OS could run on cheap or expensive laptops, desktops, servers. In a similar way, Android OS can run on both low range smartphones or on high-end devices. Sooner or later the open paradigm gets through, breaks the vendor lock-in and hardware becomes a pure commodity.

Tanaza thinks that the current market conditions allow the disaggregation of hardware and software to occur also in the Wi-Fi networking market and make the same disruption happen.

In this H2020 project proposal, Tanaza introduces its latest innovation, TanazaOS: a Linux-based operating system for Wi-Fi networking devices. This Operating System runs on any white-box and open-hardware networking device, giving enterprises and carriers an unprecedented possibility to decouple their hardware choice from their software choice, with considerable cost savings and efficiency advantages.

TanazaOS has forecasted revenues for over €10M in the first two years, and over €70M in the fourth year after the project ends.
