London, UK, March 24, 2014 – The International M2M Council has announced that its newest sustaining member is Synapse Wireless, a leader in developing proven, scalable M2M connectivity solutions based on their award-winning SNAP® wireless mesh technology.
The US-based company delivers comprehensive solutions that provide game-changing analytics to businesses looking to implement wireless capabilities, making it a good fit for the IMC, a new trade association serving the IoT industry.
