For OEMs that want to add secure 802.11a/b/g access point capabilities to a variety of devices, TeamFI is shipping Linux middleware with built in Wi-Fi.

TeamF1 Inc. is shipping Linux middleware for OEMs that want to add secure, managed 802.11a/b/g access point capabilities to devices of all kinds. The Air Secure Access Point (ASAP) stack supports 2.4- and 2.6-series Linux kernels, and integrates the latest security and management features, along with a flexible driver framework, the company says. According to
TeamF1 co-founder Mukesh Lulla says that despite high consumer demand, embedded vendors have been slow to add Wi-Fi capabilities. "Embedded device designers [have held back] from adding access point services not [because of a] lack of customer demand, but [due to] lingering doubts about security and the significant hurdle in supporting and managing the various generations of IEEE 802.11 security and Wi-Fi standards in operation at the typical customers site," Lulla said.
