KodaCloud's Wireless Veteran Explains What AI Brings to WiFi

Bernard Herscovici has a great deal of expertise in the wireless arena.  He founded BelAir Networks and served as its CEO until the company became part of Ericsson (News - Alert) in 2012.  He was president at Breezecom, is a patent holder, and now he is CEO of KodaCloud, a company he also established.

KodaCloud provides AI-enabled WiFi (News - Alert)-as-a-cloud subscription services.  These services rely on the company's patented technology and leverages artificial intelligence to monitor interactions with all devices attached to every WiFi access point.  That information is then used to automatically optimize users’ WiFi experiences and to troubleshoot WiFi infrastructure issues.

Herscovici says he founded KodaCloud to address the complexity and scalability challenges introduced by the rise of the Internet of Things.  That called for a solution that uses automation, the cloud, and software to control and optimize the network.

Extreme Networks (News - Alert) is KodaCloud’s largest customer.  The company licenses KodaCloud’s solutions and provides them to its customers in the academic and business verticals.  KodaCloud also sells its solutions direct to such customers as a staffing company, a supermarket chain, and others.

Herscovici explains the staffing company has hundreds of locations, but each location is small and doesn’t have its own IT teams.  KodaCloud provides WiFi management for those locations.

Meanwhile, the supermarket chain uses WiFi devices for inventory management and point of sale.  KodaCloud provides the company with remote management of its WiFi networks using automation as well.

AI and related technologies are enabling network operators to automate and operate their networks in new and more efficient ways.  To learn more about what’s possible in networking using AI, join us Jan. 30-Feb. 1 in Fort Lauderdale for the AIOps event and the Adaptive & Intent-Based Networking expo.

Our Call for Speakers for these events is open through July 31 at this link.
