Extending the Reach of Wi-Fi HaLow: Morse Micro Expands Global Presence, Establishes New Branch Office in Taiwan


Renowned IoT connectivity and interoperability solutions provider Morse Micro has been on IoT Evolution’s radar for quite some time. We’ve covered its respective partnerships with Synergy Associates, Silex Technology, Mouser Electronics and Quectel (I’ve included each story here; just click on those partners’ names), and we also paid attention to its staging of an impressive (and record-setting) field test. This test showcased some of the latest enhancements Morse Micro made to its Wi-Fi HaLow technology and range capabilities therein. By adding what was deemed “the world’s first live demonstration of Wi-Fi CERTIFIED HaLow technology extending three kilometers,” in San Francisco’s Ocean Beach neighborhood, Morse Micro proved its IoT ecosystem portfolio is rife with transformative solutions that push the boundaries of wireless connectivity.

Given that Morse Micro looks to cement itself as *the Wi-Fi HaLow silicon vendor, it makes sense why the company announced yesterday that its expanding operations even further.

But this time, we’re not detailing specific partnerships.

Instead, we’re talking about a different way Morse Micro is expanding its global reach:

Morse Micro officially announced the official opening of its new branch in Taiwan, a country in which the company has operated for several years (during which it strengthened existing relationships with Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company, or TSMC, for its manufacturing and Weikeng, ASEC and Alltek for the distribution of its Wi-Fi CERTIFIED HaLow chips in Greater China). Opening this Taiwan branch is being called, per the announcement itself, “a customer-centric move that reinforces Morse Micro’s commitment to bringing Wi-Fi HaLow solutions to market worldwide.”

Robert Fergusson, the company’s Australian representative in Taiwan, attended the office’s grand opening and had this to say:

“Morse Micro’s new office space brings Australian innovation to the heart of Taipei. Its investment in a new office is a testament to the growing trade opportunities between Australia and Taiwan. We want to strengthen existing trade links further and deepen our economic partnerships. We look forward to further collaboration and mutual prosperity in the years ahead.”

Michael De Nil, Morse Micro’s co-founder and CEO, also expressed his excitement, saying “This expansion underscores our dedication to meeting the evolving needs of our customers in Taiwan and China. We’re thrilled to establish a larger presence here, knowing that by being closer to our customers, we can enhance collaboration, better understand their needs, and continue innovating to exceed their expectations.”
