Google Goggles: What's this thing with no name on it?

Every time I came home, I wondered what was this thing nailed to the wall in the hall of my building.
I couldn't anything written on it either. And I didn't want to take it off to read the back of it.
All I could make out of it was this logo on it.

Enter "Google Goggles"
Install it on your Android phone, then snap a picture with Google Goggles.

That's how I found out that this was some kind of Ubiquiti Wifi bridge. Just by taking a picture of the logo.
I opened a maintenance closet in the staircase, and found a Power-over-ethernet module to power this device, along with an ethernet cable running one floor up.
Someone running a big wifi network around here ;-)
