Quick Hits: Bradley Chambers Blog, FrontRow Update, Ventev, Edgewater Wireless

As I’ve mentioned in the past, I’m not a huge fan of “aggregation” blogs. At the same time, every now and then you find yourself with an interesting mix of topics that you want to share, so what the heck. See if you find value in any of these…

Bradley Chambers Blog

I’ve never met Bradley Chambers, but he seems like a nice bloke. Brad is nice enough to occasionally respond to the daily #WIFIQ exercise on Twitter, and always has well-reasoned input (he’s @bradleychambers on Twitter).  For that, I thank him- but I also just found Brad’s blog Chambers Daily, and it’s worth reading if you are unfamiliar but have an interest in technology.

FrontRow Wearable Camera Gets a Neat Upgrade

Voice Memo ULabs (part of Ubiquiti) keeps making their FrontRow camera more feature-rich. yesterday, I upgraded mine to get the voice memo capability, which I’ve been waiting for. It works well, and it’s awesome that ULabs is listening to customer feedback.

There’s so much going on in this little gem, it’s pretty impressive. From a range of camera functions and live social media streaming to multi-language translation, Wi-Fi speed test, Spotify and stopwatch capabilities, it just keeps getting better.

Ventev’s VenVolt

Speaking of things getting better, Ventev has answered the demand for a new site survey battery pack nicely with it’s VenVolt product. This one is rightfully getting a lot of buzz among WLAN professionals that do active surveys, and among it’s other features it supports 802.3at PoE for latest gen access points. I’ve not used one yet, but can still safely say- well done, Ventev.


Edgewater Wireless Scores Kroger Grocery Stores as Customer

If you’re not familiar, Edgewater Wireless is a Canadian company that has actually been around for a while. They call their magic WIFI3, and I’ll admit to having struggled at times to understand some of their performance promises as I’ve read their PR announcements. But this one is easy to digest- Edgewater has landed the American grocery retailer Kroger as a customer. That’s big stuff.

And with that, I’ve emptied my buffers. Thanks for reading!.

Start the New Year With a Six-Pack of WLAN-Related Blogs You May Not Know About

Man, there are soooo many smart people out there doing wireless networking. I’m guessing that if you’re reading this, you have no trouble bubbling up at least a few names of people who are seen and heard often in the WLAN community. Maybe they are very active on social media, or frequently present at conferences, or have a podcast that you enjoy. We’re fortunate in this realm to be in the company of awesome folks that are happy to share of their knowledge and of their opinions/philosophies on matters that matter to us.

As 2018 kicks in, I’d like to direct your attention towards a half-dozen blogs that might not currently be on your radars. I’ve come to know of these from different circumstances for each, but have found value in all of them.

I hope you find some interest among these. I try to keep a lookout for interesting content that may not be getting strongly promoted. If you know of any decent blogs that may not typically be listed on the usual blogrolls. please share in the comments.
