Founded in 2007 and backed by the 144-year-old McWane family of companies, Synapse Wireless, Inc. invented SNAP®: the Things Platform to make it easier for solution architects, developers, designers and other IoT professionals to connect, develop, deploy and manage their IoT solution(s). Our engineers and developers desired to create software and hardware that easily supports the out-of-the-box development and true distributed processing at the edge of a mesh network. SNAP enables millions of diverse devices, fitted with Synapse sensor technology for wireless communication, to effectively communicate in a way that makes each sensor and device part of an intelligent system that can both sense and respond (to) data.
Just as smartphones enabled the explosion of useful applications and new businesses, Synapse’s SNAP technology elevates yesterday’s device monitoring to a place where organizations can reinvent their business models based on new analytics gathered by the intelligent devices managed by the SNAP network.
Quickly and easily deployed, Synapse created SNAP with the flexibility to seamlessly interface with the Internet, run concurrently with existing network infrastructures, and allow for upgrades to processors and other technologies — extending its scalability to existing and future technology.
