Two non-profit companies have announced plans to develop solar powered Wi-Fi mesh networks for rural areas, particularly in developing countries.

Inveneo Inc., a non-profit social enterprise, already has a portfolio of information and communications solutions for Non-Government Organizations (NGOs), local governments and private entities and the communities they serve.

Green WiFi, a non-profit wireless network products enterprise, has developed low-cost solar Wi-Fi node units called "SoFis" that incorporate an intelligent charge control system. Inveneo plans to trial Green WiFi's SoFis and incorporate them in its portfolio of technology solutions.

Green WiFi's product is planned for limited trial release sometime this month and consists of a small form factor solar powered Wi-Fi node, battery and an intelligent charge control system.

NGOs, governments and other organizations in rural locations need ICT solutions that meet their needs for operating in often challenging environments. By incorporating Green WiFi's product, Inveneo continues to improve upon its solutionthe Inveneo Communications Systemwhich has been engineered to meet these needs by integrating proven hardware and open-source software to create a rugged, resilient and simple-to-operate solution.
