Wirepas has opened an office in Palo Alto, CA. Youssef Kamel VP Business Development will be heading the Wirepas operations in the Americas.

“Wirepas’s business model is based on building strong partnerships with the key players in the IoT ecosystems.

In the US, Wirepas is especially targeting large-scale Industrial Internet applications in building automation, sensoring, asset tracking, logistics and lighting.
