Embedded Wireless Mesh IoT Development

Core IoT Platform

Synapse's core competency is wireless networking. Our patented wireless MESH technology is Synapse Networking Application Platform (SNAP), which scales to thousands of nodes per network (5x that of standard Zigbee). With a Python and C-level application architecture, SNAP can be deployed in a wide range of applications. There are over 4 million SNAP nodes in operation today.

It Just Works
  • SimplySNAP uses proprietary 802.15.4 @ 2.4 GHz SNAP
  • Nodes automatically create a full mesh, self-healing network
  • Single gateway can manage up to 1,000 devices (500 lights w/ sensors)
  • Range up to 1,000 ft for internal, 3,000 for external
  • SNAP communication is 100% local
  • 128-bit AES Encryption

A Thing Platform ... Perfect to Pair with IoT Platforms

Perfect to Pair with IoT Platforms!

It will “take a village” to develop end-to-end IoT Applications. APIs, platforms of various types, and open-source tools are required to “plumb” the system

Connect

First, connect the end-to-end devices in the edge network to each other and the edge gateways. This is where you make your technology decision. SNAP products include SNAPcore and SNAPmesh running on modules, E20 and E12 gateways, SNAPconnect custom programs, SNAP Things Services - data collector, and Portal IDE.

Develop

The next step is to DEVELOP the intended application on top of the connected infrastructure. This gives each thing purpose by distributing intelligence across the edge network. It is also where you make your vendor/platform choices.

  • SNAPpy scripts running on modules
  • SNAPconnect custom programs
  • SNAP Things Services
  • Portal IDE

Deploy

Once the application is complete, specialty tools are required to DEPLOY the solution into the final environment (at scale and without needing experts at every step).

  • SNAP Things Services: Site Doctor
  • Custom SNAPconnect-based programs and tools

Where SNAP fits in the Internet of Things (IoT):

  • Remote Management Layer: Software to help interface SNAP to the IoT platform
  • Gateway Layer: SNAP Connect & Things Services
  • Node & Network Layer: SNAP Core, Portal, Toolbelt
