Fog Works | September 23, 2022
W3 Storage Lab announced today it has changed its name to Fog Works. The new name better reflects the company’s positioning, has greater brand-building potential, and is more indicative of the company’s vision of being a key builder of Web3 infrastructure, applications, and devices.
The name Fog Works is derived from the term fog computing which was coined by Cisco. Fog computing is an extension of cloud computing: a network architecture where computing and storage is mostly decentralized and pushed to the edge of the network, but a cloud still exists in the center. Web3 is a fully decentralized, blockchain-enabled iteration of the internet. By being entirely decentralized, Web3 is essentially the ultimate fog computing architecture with no cloud in the center.
“Our goal is to make Web3 a reality for everyday consumers. “Because we’re making Web3 work for everyone, the name Fog Works really encapsulates our vision. We’re excited to build a brand around it.”
Xinglu Lin, CEO of Fog Works
Fog Works has co-developed a next generation distributed storage ecosystem that is based on the public blockchain, CYFS, and the Datamall Coin. CYFS is a next-generation protocol that re-invents basic Web protocols – TCP/IP, DNS, and HTTP – to create the infrastructure necessary for the complete decentralization of Web3. It has been in development for over seven years, practically eliminates latency in file retrieval – a huge problem with current decentralized storage solutions – and has infinite scalability. Fog Works is developing a series of killer applications for both consumers and enterprises that will use both CYFS and the Datamall Coin, which facilitates a more efficient market for decentralized storage.
To further the development of decentralized applications (dApps) on CYFS, Fog Works is co-sponsoring the CodeDAO Web3 Hackathon. CodeDAO is the world’s first fully decentralized code hosting platform in the world. During the hackathon, developers will compete for prizes by developing dApps using CYFS. Teams will have seven days to develop their projects. The CodeDAO Hackathon runs October 15, 2022, to October 21, 2022. For more information, please visit https://codedao.ai/hackathon.html.

AmpliTech Group | September 22, 2022
AmpliTech Group, Inc., a designer, developer, and manufacturer of state-of-the-art signal-processing components for satellite, 5G, and other communications networks and a worldwide distributor of packages and lids for integrated circuit assembly, and designer of complete 5G/6G systems, today announced that it has been awarded membership into the Telecom Infra Project (TIP), a telecom focused organization formed by Meta Platforms.
TIP was formed to align industry leaders in the telecom space as an engineering-focused initiative that brings operators, infrastructure providers, system integrators, and other technology companies together to collaborate on the development of new technologies as well as reimagine traditional approaches to building and deploying telecom network infrastructure.
AmpliTech is joining the project shortly after the launch of its new division, TGSS, which is focused on designing, building, integrating, deploying, and maintaining complete 5G systems as a managed service. The Company also manufactures leading low noise amplifier designs that increase throughput and reliability, leading to higher data transmission throughput and decreased network downtime.
“AmpliTech is proud to join the prestigious TIP organization and be recognized as a leading enabler of next-gen telecom networks that will power the future of mobile networking technology. AmpliTech was founded with the mission of enabling human connectivity like never before. From the start, we anticipated the day when telecom networks would simply not be able to support the increased data transmission rates required by the broader industry. Everything we have built has been to address this impending challenge.”
Founder and CEO Fawad Maqbool
“Meta established the TIP program to draw attention to the lack of performant telecom infrastructure that enables developments like augmented reality/ virtual reality, metaverse, and high-resolution video streaming, and collaborate with industry leaders to develop solutions to this problem. AmpliTech currently offers solutions which include our leading edge performance Low Noise Amplifiers that enable data transfer to occur at higher speeds. We’re also working to develop key partnerships and offering our technical support to others in our constant search to be designed into programs that require AmpliTech’s differentiating and proven low noise technology. Joining TIP brings us into a group of like-minded contributors focused on improving the world’s telecom infrastructure. We’re excited to be in a position to contribute to this cause as we all work together to meet the challenges the industry is facing today,” concluded Mr. Maqbool.
