ASSIA announced its official involvement in the prpl Foundation, an open-source, not-for-profit consortium with a focus on enabling the security and interoperability of embedded devices. ASSIA's technology is intended to make it possible for service providers' WiFi management solutions to work with any WiFi router and middleware solution and interoperate, scale, and evolve with technology and standards.

"Reliable broadband and WiFi connectivity are fundamental to a resilient economy worldwide. ASSIA's contribution to prpl will leverage the company's decade-long pioneering work deploying advanced WiFi management solutions at the world's largest carriers and creating industry standards for internet connectivity," said Tuncay Cil, ASSIA chief strategy officer. "ASSIA gives service providers advanced WiFi management capabilities without getting locked into a vendor-specific data collection/control middle layer."

Robert Ferreira, president of the prpl Foundation, said: "ASSIA invests heavily in creating industry standards and contributed to the interoperability of the WiFi ecosystem by being instrumental in developing the Wi-Fi Alliance's WiFi CERTIFIED Data Elements standard, and the Broadband Forum TR-181 WiFi data model. ASSIA's involvement in the prpl Foundation will bring interoperability with the prpl family of solutions to its large carrier customer base and will contribute to future prpl feature development for advanced WiFi management technologies."

ASSIA has been an active contributor to open industry standards bodies since its inception. ASSIA contributes to the prpl Foundation, Broadband Forum, Wi-Fi Alliance, Wireless Broadband Alliance, NICC, ITU-T, and ETSI Network Functions Virtualization Industry Specification Group in creating industry standards.
