Founded in Italy in 2012 Wiicom is a start-up company of I3P, the Innovative Enterprise Incubator of the Politecnico of Torino, Italy’s main university-based technology incubator. The company builds on its intellectual property (IP) and experience in the design and manufacture of compact and robust control and monitoring systems to offer a highly specialised IEEE 802.11bgn Wi-Fi consultancy spanning product research, product design & development and product manufacturing.
The Italian company has a four-stage client engagement process; Concept, Feasibility, Prototype and Production phases. In the third of these, p re-production models are assembled and tested, ensuring that all relevant EMI and safety standards are fully complied with, before β-samples are produced for client and end customer(s) evaluation. In the transfer to production, the company establishes the optimum production/assembly process and if required, advises on the use of automatic test equipment.
“A client can choose to entrust Wiicom with the entire design & development process or to employ Wiicom’s skills and capabilities in a particular part(s) of the engagement process to complement its own in-house design and development team,” said Gary Plumley, Ismosys DPP Business Development Manager.
“Ismosys plays a major role in the sales and marketing success of major application specific silicon vendors,” said Paolo Landolfo, Wiicom’s Sales & Marketing Manager. “The Ismosys DPP is pro-actively supported by Altera and Semtech - which in itself makes the company a very appealing partner for us - but also represents among others Airgain, a leading embedded ‘smart’ Wi-Fi antenna wireless systems developer, and so already enjoys close business relationship with much of our target demographic.”
