Notwithstanding the various technological developments that have involved the world of telecommunications over recent years, Guglielmo has always remained faithful to its own vision of WiFi technology, as a strategic and all-embracing means of supplying Internet access on a mobile basis. The simultaneous and relatively recent spread of mobile devices has borne out this vision, confirming this trend to an exponential degree. Guglielmo invests regularly in R&D with an internal full time basis team.

The research activities have generated some of the products currently on the market as well as academic publications of international interest in the field of new applications connected with Wi-Fi technology.
