GreenPeak: one of the fastest growing technology vendors in the ZigBee space

Recognized by key industry players and integrated in a wide range of products

Utrecht, 31 May 2012 - GreenPeak Technologies, a leading ultra-low power RF semiconductor company today announced that its 2012 year-to-date shipments already doubled the volumes from 2011, proving that the company is one of the fastest growing technology providers for the ZigBee market addressing an overall multi-billion market opportunity in the Internet of Things.


With the high volume shipments of ZigBee chipsets in the Operator market, GreenPeak is rapidly becoming one of the larger players in ZigBee. ZigBee-based gateways and set-top boxes pave the road for Operators to offer new services in the Internet of Things market like security, home care and energy management.

"RF is clearly going to play a central role as the core technology connecting sense and control devices with set-top boxes and similar equipment," said Craig Mathias, a Principal with the wireless and mobile advisory firm Farpoint Group (Ashland, MA). "ZigBee RF4CE is the clear leader in establishing this vision as reality. The team at GreenPeak has broad wireless expertise stretching back to the early days of wireless LANs, so their leadership in ZigBee today comes as no surprise. There are some great days ahead for both GreenPeak and ZigBee overall."

With GreenPeak's leading ultra-low power ZigBee chips, applications become easy to install and maintenance free (no battery replacement) which reduces support cost. Also, the superior range of GreenPeak's technology with patented antenna diversity technology enables covering a complete house and makes it ideally suited for an in-home environment where the set-top box becomes a Home Control Box, effortlessly connecting numerous home control devices in one integrated set of home control applications.

Cees Links, Founder and CEO of GreenPeak Technologies explains: "Operators are quickly adopting ZigBee for their set-top boxes and are in the driving seat for making the connected home a reality. We have the best solution available in the market with the best range, the longest battery life and practically insensitive for Wi-Fi interference. This makes GreenPeak the logical choice for many Operators to add new home automation applications to their offerings and makes us one of the fastest growing technology vendors in the rapidly developing ZigBee market space."

Cees Links continues: "GreenPeak has a wealth of RF experience for home automation. We are the team that has invented Wi-Fi and we have expanded our leadership in low power sense and control networking, recognized by key industry players."
