Wirepas opens office in the UK

Wirepas has opened an office in London, UK. The company is especially targeting large-scale Industrial Internet applications such as smart metering, sensoring, asset tracking, logistics and lighting.

  • I am very excited to be heading-up Wirepas operations in the UK. I firmly believe that success in the IoT space is based upon strong co-operation between companies; each bringing their own business and technology experience to the table. The magic is in the ecosystems. My main mission in the UK is, therefore, to build partnerships which help simplify the IoT for the end customer and maximize their return on investment, Alan Sillito says.

Alan Sillito is an experienced sales and technology professional with a diverse background covering IoT, Industrial and Mobile Phone applications. Before joining Wirepas Alan held, among others, key Sales and Business Development positions in the UK, Switzerland, China and Finland in leading companies such as Nokia, NXP Semiconductors and Atmel.

  • Our technology is especially strong when we discussing large-scale deployments with millions of installed devices. Our protocol enables massive IoT and it is easy to use and to integrate as a part of partners offering. The IoT ecosystems are active and strong in the UK and we see that we can add value when it comes to large scale industrial IoT applications, Teppo Hemiä summarizes.

Wirepas will be exhibiting at the Energy Event in Birmingham 13-15 Sep (Stand G36-H39) and in the Smart Summit in London 21-22 Sep.

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, Germany, South Korea, the UK and the United States.
