Using NuvlaBox® to Enable Technology in Emerging Markets: Bridging the Digital Divide

SixSq, a cloud solution provider based in Geneva, Switzerland, has been selected as an ALPHA exhibitor at the Web Summit 2014. The company will use the occasion to showcase the production model of its private cloud-in-a-box solution, NuvlaBox®. The solution, billed as with an affordable cloud-in-a-box that's child play to use and manage, addresses the problems faced in developing countries, such as unreliable network, power supply, harsh environment and affordability.

“We are really excited about being in Dublin with the top players from our industry,” said Marc-Elian Bégin, CEO of SixSq, “But more importantly, we see a way to finally address the massive problems involved in delivering helpful applications in emerging countries. It’s about making possible what was not.”

The SixSq solution can help communities to deploy a tailor-made IT infrastructure to operate in rural environments. Applications can be pre-installed and its autonomous Wi-Fi network allows connection to any device to access application services.

“NuvlaBox® will open up opportunities for schools, medical facilities, micro businesses and field operations. In fact the possibilities are endless,” added Juliane Frömmter, SixSq’s Business Development Manager. “Showcasing at the WebSummit is a great opportunity for SixSq to find partners who want to invest to building an eco-system determined to make a change for rural communities and assist with distribution in developing countries.”

With over 20,000 attendees, the Web Summit has become one of the world’s biggest and best technology conferences. In 2013, 10,242 attendees came from all over the globe including business leaders from Google, Microsoft, Facebook, Box and over 60% of the Fortune 500. The Summit takes place in Dublin from 4 to 6 November 2014. SixSq will be exhibiting on November 4th at stand ETP111, Enterprise Area, Simmonscourt.
