Projects / SmartBOX


SmartBOX is an easy-to-install, easy-to-manage, resilient, and feature-rich network server with an emphasis on ease of use and data security and with minimal hardware requirements. The design of this system is entirely based upon research into the voluntary and community organization (VCO) sector by team members of the Illuminate ICT project.
