Was the Death Star Suffering from Bad WiFi? SecurEdge Investigates.

 When the Death Star blew up… all seemed lost for the empire, but what if a reliable and secure Wi-Fi network was the only thing that stood in the way of the Rebel Alliance that fateful day.

When the Death Star blew up… all seemed lost for the empire, but what if a reliable and secure Wi-Fi network was the only thing that stood in the way of the Rebel Alliance that fateful day.

Maybe if the Emperor had deployed a large scale dynamic wireless network…their station wouldn’t have been brought down so easily…Oh, if you haven’t seen A New Hope…spoiler alert…

Here are some reasons why bad Wi-Fi failed the Death Star:

Obviously they weren’t utilizing any type of Network Access Control (NAC) since R2-D2 was able to plug into any terminal and access all the floor plans and control systems station wide.

 

The Wi-Fi must have been poor at this end of the station since the door control failed partway during the opening causing a really good friend of mine to hit the right side of his head.

Maintenance droids which are extremely annoying would often lose Wi-Fi connectivity, lose their navigation, drive into walls or people, or wind up in the wrong place on the station.

A lot of people don’t realize that Vader wasn’t force choking that guy because his lack of faith was disturbing… that was actually the guy responsible for all of the Wi-Fi in the death star…go figure.

TK-421, which by the way was a good friend of mine was experiencing poor Wi-Fi connectivity and could not properly report the ambush in the Millennium Falcon.

It wasn’t all bad for us, the Rebels had some challenges with poor Wi-Fi as experienced with communicating from the garbage masher.

Alerts to abandon the Death Star during the Rebel’s attack were missed on Imperial personnel’s mobile communicators station wide due to spotty Wi-Fi.

God love him, the man gave me a job but the Emperor and his executive staff were extremely over confident in the impenetrability and security of the Death Star and they used some cheap, consumer Wi-Fi gear which failed them time and time again.

Well there you have it Padawans….reasons why the Death Star would still be around if not for a poor performing Wi-Fi network…

Now the only thing we’re left wondering…. is how Boba Fett’s Wi-Fi needs are being met in the Sarlacc Pit…

Until next time SecurEdge fans…See you soon in a galaxy not so far away…
