Why Keyssa Built a Better Connector: Part 4 – Security

Steve Venuti
VP Marketing, Keyssa

There is nothing inherently secure about metal or mechanical connectors. In fact, they are notoriously unsecure: highly visible on the face of a compute product, more than likely standardized in their size and configuration, ripe for probing and extracting data.

The Case for Wireless Connectors in LED Video Walls

By Wade Wei, general manager of product at NovaStar and Steve Venuti, VP Marketing at Keyssa

Very few products have as many connections as an LED video wall. Cabinets connected to cabinets running Ethernet through RJ45 connectors. LED display modules connected to cabinets or backplanes with B2B connectors running parallel RGB and a number of control signals. And with each of these hundreds of connectors comes the very real possibility that one will fail.

Device-to-device Connections in a 5G World Need a 5G Connector: Why I Decided to Join Keyssa

By Rubén Caballero
Chief Wireless Strategist, Keyssa
Formerly VP Engineering at Apple, Inc

5G is the fifth generation of mobile internet connectivity and the feature set is promising: faster data download and upload speeds, wider coverage, more stable connections and lower latency for mission critical operations (think autonomous vehicles, robotics, etc.). Of course, faster speeds are always desirable, but lower latency may be of higher importance for mission critical applications. The processing time required for both sender and receiver using traditional wireless technologies cannot meet the latency requirements of mission critical use cases. It’s all about making better use of the radio spectrum and enabling far more devices to access the mobile internet at the same time.

The Fragility of Metal (you can hear the kids screaming)

By Steve Venuti
VP Marketing, Keyssa

This week saw ominous words for Switch gamers coming out of Nintendo:

‘We are aware of recent reports that some Joy-Con controllers are not responding correctly’

As focused as Nintendo is with an unparalleled user experience, everything can fall apart at that potential single point of failure….the mechanical connector.

Hardware Is No Longer Hard

Steve Venuti, VP Marketing, Keyssa

For the longest time, hardware was exactly as the name suggests: hard, rigid, inflexible. Purchasing an HDTV or a cell phone meant first choosing a screen size…features were the next level of decision making. Why? Because the physical form factor, whether on your wall or in your pocket or purse, was not going to change. It was immutable. But all that is changing.

New Advancements in Medical Connector Technology

Andrew N. Goldberg, MD, MSCE
Professor and Director, Division of Rhinology and Sinus Surgery
Department of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery, University of California, San Francisco

The first line in a recent article published in (“Infection Control by Sterilizing Medical Connectors & Equipment”) says it all:

“The importance of sterilizing medical connectors and equipment is impossible to overstate.”

It’s been 50 years since Gordon Moore published his prophetic observation, and as we all know, it has had a seminal impact on the development of solid-state devices. It’s been the basis for the speed of development of processors. It’s had a similar impact on the development of SSDs. But there is one key area of computing that has not seen the benefits of Moore’s Law.
