By Ken Briodagh December 07, 2018

According to a recent release, Cypress Semiconductor recently expanded its portfolio of Internet of Things (IoT) solutions with the addition of Cirrent, a provider of software and cloud services for consumer Wi-Fi products. IoT companies use Cirrent’s software and cloud services to make their products easier to use, more reliable, and more secure.

“Cirrent helps users bring their IoT products online quickly and keep them connected, solving two of the biggest barriers to the broader proliferation of IoT products,” said Hassane El-Khoury, president and CEO, Cypress. “Providing valuable and differentiated software is a core part of Cypress’ strategy. The addition of Cirrent strengthens our position to expand our software services revenue by bringing on their talented team of engineers, building on their scalable cloud platform, and embracing their relationships with the large internet-service providers and leading IoT product companies.” 

Cirrent’s software is designed to allow IoT products to more easily connect to a customer’s home network and stay connected, providing an better user experience and return on investment to product manufacturers by reducing support costs and product returns.

Cirrent’s ZipKey Wi-Fi Onboarding and IoT Network Intelligence solutions are available today for companies making connected products with a wide variety of Wi-Fi chips and operating systems.

“We started Cirrent to improve the Wi-Fi experience for connected products, and with partners like Comcast and Electrolux, we’ve built momentum towards achieving this vision,” said Rob Conant, founder and GM, Cirrent. “Joining Cypress through an acquisition back in August was the next step on our mission to bring these capabilities to more products across more markets. Cypress shares our desire to continually improve the end-user experience and has decades of experience making technology simple and mainstream.”


The IoT Evolution Expo, and collocated events, IoT Evolution Health, LPWAN Expo, The Smart City Event, and IIoT Conference, will take place Jan. 29 to Feb 1 in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Visit IoTEvolutionExpo.com to register now.
