Wirepas in brief

Wirepas is focused on providing the most reliable, optimized, scalable and simple to use connectivity for large-scale IoT applications. With Wirepas Connectivity there is no need for traditional repeaters, because every wireless device is a smart router of the network. The connected devices form the network – easy as that. 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, South Korea and the United States.
