We are proud of our strong network of partners and projects within research, development, and innovation.
Connection Technology Systems (CTS) is a leading vendor of fiber products with a complete portfolio.
Norwegian Enivest is one of our oldest customers and a key partner for us in developing new services and user experiences for the ISP and end user, and testing services and functionality.
Turkish startup Lifemote is a close development partner for Eye Networks in developing the next generation of management and monitoring services. Lifemote develops AI for customer care in telecommunications, products and services that identify network issues and lets ISPs address them proactively.
Zyxel is our main CPE vendor and has been a close collaboration partner for Eye Networks since the very beginning. Together with Zyxel we identify the best solutions and configurations for each customer.
Through the Department of Technology Systems (ITS) the University of Oslo focuses on sustainable infrastructures for a digital society. Key activities address renewable energy, autonomous systems and free access to information.
More than 800 million people throughout the world have no access to the Internet and the information there. The Basic Internet Foundation works for free access to the Internet for all.
Creating trust in wireless solutions and increasing their social acceptance are the goals of the European project SCOTT—Secure COnnected Trustable Things. SCOTT gathers 57 key partners from 12 countries (EU and Brazil) through EU's ECSEL Joint Undertaking, and will provide comprehensive cost-efficient solutions of wireless, end-to-end secure, trustworthy connectivity and interoperability.
SCOTT will not just deal with 'things that are connected', but with 'trustable things that securely communicate'—that is, things interconnected by dependable wireless technology that values the end-users' privacy rules. EyeSaaS has taken the lead on “Managed Wifi for Trustable Services”, expecting that future applications need much stricter security and privacy requirements than today. Examples of such applications are alarm services in the home, health services, and software updates for safety-critical devices such as cars. We expect that our involvement, together with the 7 other Norwegian partners, will lead to a showcase on Managed Wifi.
IoTSec—Security in IoT for Smart Grids—was created in 2015 to promote the development of a secure infrastructure for the Internet of Things (IoT).
The IoTSec research project has received funding from the Norwegian Research Council for contributions to a safe information society. IoTSec addresses the fundamental need for a reliable and efficient power grid with no interruptions, with dynamic configuration and secure properties. It also addresses the needs of organizations and users for new IoT services by exploring use cases for value-adding services. The purpose is to shape the building blocks for future services; services that take all necessary precautions regarding security and privacy to success with large scale deployment.
Eye Networks joined the IoTSec initiative through EyeSaaS to contribute expertise regarding managed smart services, applications, and devices in the home. Although smart meters will be able to communicate with home infrastructure, most home electronics will connect via Wi-Fi, which is where our services are relevant.
The research of the IoTSec initiative will be used by the planned Norwegian security center for smart grids, placed in a Norwegian Centre of Excellence (NCE).
For all the talk of smart homes and IoT: Today's Wi-Fi in the home is barely keeping up with current needs and uses. It is definitely not delivering the stable and reliable access that will be required by, for instance, health technologies in the home.
The [email protected] project was launched as part of the development and tuning of the EyeSaaS service platform and the EyeSaaS Pearl service.
The goal for EyeSaaS is to allow ISPs to develop and deliver tomorrow's services, adjusted to the needs of users. We want to do this by giving the the tools to gather and interpret large quantities of data in real time. The main partners in the [email protected] project were:
Thanks to the close relationship between Enivest and their customers and our own close collaboration with our Wi-Fi equipment vendor at the time, this project gathered representatives for every part of the home Wi-Fi value chain. A select group of Enivest customers were equipped with mesh access points. The access points were managed through EyeSaaS Pearl, made available to Enivest technical staff and customer support for better insight into the home networks. In collaboration with the other project partners, Eye Networks explored data quality, data requirements, and how data can be transformed to information that can form the basis for decisions and actions.
