Palo Alto, Calif. – (April 1, 2015) – Instart Logic, the cloud application delivery service for performance-obsessed organizations, today debuted a new electricity-defined application delivery technology – the 110V Nanovisor™. This new device connects to a standard power outlet that discretizes standard alternating current to generate information-carrying packets that can be encoded into TCP packets – converting the power line into an Ethernet cable.

"After spending the last three years accelerating web applications over the wireless last mile, we realized that wireless is overrated. Users hate slow wireless Internet connections," said Manav Mital, Instart Logic co-founder and CEO. "While companies like Starbucks are providing wireless charging technology we are going the other way: converting the omnipresent power line into an Internet-supplying cable."

"Software is eating the world, but electricity is feeding it," said Jan Leeman, an investor in Instart Logic. "This electricity-defined application delivery solution revolutionizes how end users consume web applications."

The 110V Nanovisor is a sleek device that will be available immediately in major electronics stores such as CompUSA, Radio Shack and Circuit City. The company also plans to release a 220V version for countries that have a 220V power grid and a car adapter/extension cord with a 1-mile range.

"The 110V Nanovisor will democratize Internet access for users around the world," said David Hsieh, VP of Marketing, Instart Logic. "Anyone with access to an electricity outlet can utilize the full power of the Internet without being beholden to slow, congested wireless networks. Everyone carries around a power adapter anyway, so why not take advantage of it?"
