Single Digits, a managed network provider, and OpenWiFi, a solution developed through the Telecom Infra Project (TIP), a global community of companies and organizations working together to advance global connectivity, deployed an OpenWiFi network at the Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) of Greater Charlotte.
The open source-based Wi-Fi network supports RMHC's mission to embrace families of sick or injured children by providing the comfort and support of home during their greatest time of need.
RMHC of Greater Charlotte's mission aligns with Single Digits' commitment to creating connected experiences that enhance the quality of life. This Wi-Fi deployment will offer families seamless internet connectivity, ensuring they can stay in touch with loved ones and access vital information during their stay.
"The Single Digits Wi-Fi network deployment process was exceptional. We're grateful to collaborate with forward-thinking organizations like them to significantly enhance our ability to provide comfort and convenience for the families we serve," said Vicky Seksinsky, representative office administrator at RMHC of Greater Charlotte. "Staying connected with loved ones is paramount during a stay, and our new OpenWiFi network enables children and their families to do just that."
Leveraging community-driven OpenWiFi architecture to enable part multivendor, managed Wi-Fi networks, Single Digits integrates its managed services through The Connected Life Platform™.
The program facilitates the easy installation and zero-touch provisioning of access points from Edgecore and NetExperience's cloud controller, resulting in what it says is an efficient and effective setup process for RMHC of Greater Charlotte.
"We are delighted to partner with industry leader Single Digits to bring the benefits of OpenWiFi to the RMHC of Greater Charlotte. The OpenWiFi solution is perfectly suited for the public good, with lower costs, better access and an open platform," said Bernard Herscovici, CEO of NetExperience.
In the spirit of Wi-Fi for good, Single Digits, OpenWiFi, NetExperience and Edgecore all partnered on a fundraiser — Raise Love #forRMHC. For every like, comment, repost, or share on LinkedIn, the companies will donate to ensure that funds raised can fill a pantry with snacks in the RMCH of Greater Charlotte's Ronald McDonald Family Room.
