Entropy Solution is now a proud member of the OpenAirInterface Software Alliance as an Associate Member to work on Emergency Communications.
Quoting Entropy Solution, “In emergency situations, communication is crucial. But when disasters like typhoons or earthquakes compromise important infrastructures such as electrical grid or cell sites, it is a miracle to coordinate.” Entropy Solution provides coordination capabilities through products such as eREACH.
The OSA extends a warm welcome to Entropy Solution on joining the Alliance and look forward to doing joint work in creating solutions for this critical use-case.
Entropy Solution joining the OSA is an important step for the Alliance in its drive to promote use of OpenAirinterface software as building block for solutions build by small and medium-size enterprises. This is also in precise accordance with with the Alliance’s vision of facilitating OpenAirInterface adoption and in turn democratizing wireless innovation.
eReach Emergency Base Station used in the 2018 Shake Drill. In partnership with Globe, Entropy showcased the eReach Emergency Base Station is flown in from Plaridel Airport to VMMC and Camp Aguinaldo.
In anticipation of The Big One, the Metro Manila Development Authority aims to prepare the people of the possible dangers of the earthquake. The annual #MMShakeDrill drill is geared towards assessing and strengthening the capacity of individuals, households, and local government units in responding to the “Big One.” In the staging and planning of the earthquake drill, the MMDA has divided Metro Manila into 4 quadrants.
In partnership with the various agencies and other stakeholders, MMDA has organized a composite team of representatives from the MMDA, Metro Manila Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council, Philippine National Police, Armed Forces of the Philippines, and local DRRMOs in each quadrant. They are expected to simulate particular earthquake scenarios in their respective areas.
“No one can predict when an earthquake will happen. We must be prepared at all times so we want the shake drill unannounced,” said MMDA General Manager Jojo Garcia.
So how does eReach play in all of the events?
eReach is expected to be utilized during the worst conditions, where all communications systems are down assuming that it has been destroyed by the earthquake, the rescuers or telco providers just need to boot up the base station and provide service to the people. It will help for easier coordination and rescue.

Tech industry visitors tour inside Entropy Labs, a newly inaugurated hardware research and development facility in Cabuyao, Laguna yesterday. The space is intended for the testing and development of telecommunication equipment and the Internet of Things.
Entropy Solution is known for developing and deploying the intelligence behind the National Wi-Fi Program using its broadband management platform, Gridloc. In 2016, the company developed eReach, a portable, plug-and-play cellular network intended for emergencies, when power and conventional telco networks may be unavailable.
Present during the inauguration are Sam Consorte, CEO of Entropy Solution ; Francis Goh, Venture Capitalist Partner of Entropy Solution; and Alan Silor, Assistant Secretary of Department of Information and Communications Technology.

June 12, 2017, the Philippines Independence Day marks another milestone that would give more Filipinos more “Freedom” in their use of the Free WiFi initiative of the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT).
“To make the EDSA project happen, the DICT employed strategies, which include providing access points in all MRT stations and in between stations and enhancing infrastructures for cellular services along EDSA,” PCOO said.
Entropy Solution, an expert in the telco industry in collaboration with Abratique & Associates Inc. has shared their experience and knowledge in the Free WiFi initiative of the DICT. Entropy is the company behind the broadband management solution – Gridloc, a state-of-the-art system that helps in the management of users connecting to the access points deployed all through Edsa to ensure that everyone has a smooth, and fair usage connectivity.

Entropy Solution has launched the captive portal for the DICT EDSA WiFi in partnership with Abratique and Associates, the service provider for the Nationwide WiFi Project – Pipol Konek!. The free WiFi service is 30 minutes per device per day.
How do one use it?
Just connect to “FREE EDSA WiFi” SSID within the specific areas of the MRT and then click “ENTER”. Its that easy!
