Synapse Registers 500th SNAP(R) User

Accelerating Growth of SNAP, an Internet-Enabled Mesh Network Standard

HUNTSVILLE, AL -- (Marketwire) -- 09/17/09 -- After announcing revenue doubling in the previous two quarters, Synapse Wireless®, the leader in Internet-enabled, wireless machine-to-machine (M2M) communication, today announced it has passed the 500th registered SNAP user milestone. SNAP is an auto-forming, multi-hop, mesh network, software solution that "works as advertised" according to Tom Cantrell of Circuit Cellar magazine.

"The simplicity of SNAP may mean that the promise of 802.15.4 can finally be realized. You no longer have to be a network expert to make use of wireless technology, and can develop an application in a matter of days," said Tom Starnes, Processor Analyst, Objective Analysis.

SNAP customers are getting their wireless products out the door many times faster than their competitors while also enjoying a cost advantage.

International initiatives like Smart Grid, which seek to modernize electric utilities, will look to standards like SNAP to support the rapid deployment of a reliable overlay of wireless digital communication. Synapse SNAP is proving to be the solution for these and many other applications, such as medical, asset management and industrial automation.

SNAP is the industry's only solution that was designed from the ground up for seamless connection to the Internet. "What's really cool about Synapse's SNAPconnect is not only that it brings the Internet to this realm, but that it makes it 'easy' for application developers. That's why we designated it as a best new product," said Jason McDonald, Senior Editor, eg3.com.

A concern for many companies is getting locked into a sole source for hardware. "Not so with SNAP," explains Tom Cantrell. "...interestingly (and, I'd say, wisely) they're more than willing to get SNAP up and running on other vendors' hardware." SNAP-based products from Panasonic, California Eastern Laboratories (CEL) and Synapse's own Freescale-based modules can all reside on the same, interoperable SNAP network and communicate seamlessly. "We are very excited about our collaboration with Synapse as we believe SNAP is the best software standard for Personal Area Networks," said Richard Trueman, Senior Product Manager, Panasonic Industrial Company.

Now over 500 registered SNAP users have formed an interactive community at the Synapse SNAP Forum (http://forums.synapse-wireless.com). The Forum provides a global, 24/7 home for answers to technical questions and a growing library of complete, open source code for commonly used routines. Sample applications, such as battery monitoring, interfacing into GPS systems and keypads, multi-drop serial applications and more are accessible without cost.
