This course will be led by Łukasz Łukowski, a stalwart of open networking and an experienced IT professional with multiple roles across various organizations. Łukasz has been at the heart of the open networking revolution from its inception, making him an invaluable guide for this course.
Currently, Łukasz serves as the CSMO Officer at STORDIS, a leading open networking expert company. He is also the Chief Technology and Knowledge Transfer Officer at route2open, a platform dedicated to empowering businesses and individuals to embrace the future of networking. His roles extend to being the OCP European Project Lead at the Open Compute Project Foundation and an ONF Ambassador at the Open Networking Foundation (ONF).
While working with Edgecore Networks, Łukasz had the opportunity to be a part of pioneering wireless disaggregation even before the OpenWiFi project was initiated in 2019. Edgecore Networks’ vision of leveraging the Open Network Install Environment (ONIE) to create Bare-Access Points started taking shape with the OpenWiFi project’s advent and its OpenWRT-based software. Łukasz was also a key contributor to Edgecore Networks’ OCP-accepted hardware designs, including various indoor and outdoor wireless access points.
In 2019, Łukasz found himself at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, where the OpenWiFi project was first unveiled. This revolutionary concept marked the beginning of a new era in open-source network solutions, and Łukasz, representing Edgecore Networks, was right at the heart of it.
With his passion for open networking, vast experience, and first-hand involvement in the birth and growth of OpenWiFi, Łukasz is an ideal guide for this journey into TIP OpenWiFi and Edgecore’s OpenWiFi Solution.
