3.3 Firmware (Operating System)
The Wicrypt firmware is a Linux Embedded Distribution Environment based software that powers the operations of the hotspot hub as a micro-node in the Wicrypt network. The firmware is a highly adaptable software built to run on billions of devices and maintain scalability. It enables traffic control, end-to-end encryption of user data, data usage, billing and security to prevent unauthorized access to the device.
The firmware syncs all information with the Wicrypt network. Routers are usually limited by low storage capacity and computing resources, but thanks to our combined proprietary hardware and firmware design, we are able to improve these features and enable them to act as micro-nodes (or micro-servers) in the Wicrypt network.
Each router measures data usage of connected users and transmits it to the cloud servers.
