How to Deliver Wi-Fi as a Service


We are pleased and proud to once more invite industry colleagues, vendors, and partners to come together in a professional, but informal setting over two days in Oslo, Norway.

As always, the program will be a blend of Norwegian and international speakers on stage, well-known and lesser-known technologies on display, and something you might not have expected.

The Shared Insights event is both a professional and a social venue, and a place to share practical advice and experiences. You will have plenty of time to discuss with industry colleagues, presenters, and vendors in between talks and presentations and after the main program on our first day.

This year we return to Månefisken in Sagveien, Oslo. Participation and meals are free, but any travel and accommodation costs must be covered by the participants or their employers.



Wi-Fi & Beer: Those who are in town and want to meet up, join us from 7PM and onwards for a Wi-Fi chat and refreshments at Brygg, Storgata 7 in central Oslo..

Dr. Eren Soyak, CEO and co-founder, Lifemote
Keynote: The Three Pillars of Clear Home Wi-Fi
WiFi has increasingly become the bottleneck for home Internet access, in most cases being far outpaced by increasing broadband speed. Obtaining and leveraging visibility within the home is a growing concern among high speed ISPs. In this talk we will discuss how home WiFi can be optimized via machine learning processing data from three sources: granular CPE data flow, support center supervision and user self-care.
Bio: Eren Soyak received his BS/MS/PhD in Electrical Engineering from Northwestern University, Evanston, IL with research in wireless video optimization for computer vision systems. Soyak has led the design and implementation of video processing systems for telecoms infrastructure, set-top boxes and consumer electronics at Ingenient Technologies and was the Director of Systems Engineering and Research for Airties Wireless Networks from 2011-2015. In 2015-2017 he was the co-founder for Lifemote Technologies, which developed computer vision systems for health analytics. In 2017, Soyak co-founded Lifemote Networks, which develops home WiFi analytics and management systems for ISPs.

Big data in basic science - creating opportunities or triggering crisis?
Using examples from physics, I will illustrate how recent trends like big data and open science create opportunities and challenges established practices. Opening science by sharing data and analysis tools accelerates progress and builds confidence. On the other hand, results not being reproduced seems counterproductive.
Bio: Researcher Gry Tveten prøver å finne ut hvordan how atomkjerner oppfører seg i varme stjernemiljøer ved å gjøre laboratorieeksperimenter her på jorda.

Code of Conduct

Our motivation for hosting this event is to be a venue for mutual learning and socialization within the industry, in an informal, yet professional setting. We want the event to be inclusive to everyone regardless of gender, orientation, or ethnicity.

We have chosen to clearly communicate these values by having a simple code of conduct.

We are doing this to let everyone know where we stand, not because we have reason to expect problems. Experience from past events is that most participants already follow this code of conduct.

The short version is simple: Be nice, inclusive, and professional. Respect the boundaries of others.

The long version is also simple:

  1. Derogatory comments adressing someone's gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, body shape, religion or disability are not welcome at our event, on or off stage, presented humoristically or not.
  2. Don't be physically or verbally intrusive. Not sure what topic of discussion or level of physical contact is OK with your discussion partner? Ask, and respect getting a "no".
  3. If you experience or observe behavior that violates the code of conduct, notify Eye Networks staff.
