In nature, things are communicating and making autonomous decisions based on de-centralized protocols that fulfill the need as efficiently as possible – nothing more, nothing less. This is also what Wirepas is all about. Wirepas has its headquarters in Tampere, Finland and offices in Brazil, France, Germany, South Korea and the United States.
