The Internet Waypoint: IpLContent Presents Near Real-Time, High-Bandwidth Access

IpLearn´s affiliate, IpLContent, has presented the Enhanced Network Access Point (ENAP), a near real-time, high-bandwidth accessing device, applicable for multi-access edge computing, the company said.

An ENAP can provide content from the Internet via a local area network (LAN). By storing content from the Internet on a local device, people can quickly and easily access content without having to shoulder their way through a cluttered network.

The available content can be determined by various parameters the host chooses. Perhaps a local coffee shop likes to keep local news available. Perhaps the store decides instead to defer to its customers, so that the most requested materials remain available as long as they are routinely accessed.

This technology´s applications are limitless. The store can provide digital bulletin boards of sorts, with announcements from customers and pinned coupons. A clothing store could provide a digital fitting room. A school teacher can provide materials for the day´s lesson and inhibit student access to inappropriate content, making bandwidth-intensive learning, such as interactive video and virtual-reality contents, possible.
