ACKme Networks - a Sensors.com brand

Wi-Fi Technology

Wi-Fi

ACKme Networks prides itself on providing quality technology solutions to customers, so it is only natural that we are very selective when it comes to choosing partners and suppliers.

ACKme Wi-Fi products are based exclusively on Broadcom technology. Founded in 1991, Broadcom is a fabless semiconductor provider headquartered in Irvine, California. Over the past 23+ years, Broadcom has become one of the largest suppliers of wireless and broadband communication ICs in the world.

The relationship between ACKme and Broadcom runs deep. ACKme senior management includes a selection of individuals that were key to the genesis and development of Broadcom WICED technology.

Introducing WICED™, by Broadcom

WICED Logo

Broadcom's Wireless Internet Connectivity for Embedded Devices (WICED™) platform (pronounced "wik-id") eases development effort and simplifies the implementation of Internet connectivity in an array of consumer devices, especially those without existing support for networking.

ACKme provides certified module solutions and feature-rich easy-to-use software applications that are fully compatible with WICED. The powerful combination of Broadcom WICED and industry-proven ACKme solutions, in concert with legendary ACKme support, eases development effort enabling you to beat your competitors to market with a highly-reliable and cost-effective product.

Introducing WiConnect, by ACKme

YOUR DEVICE. CONNECTED.

Connect your device in no time flat using an ACKme Wi-Fi module and WiConnect - the intuitive Wi-Fi networking application with user friendly serial commands.

While an ACKme Wi-Fi module avoids the cost and complexities of RF board design, WiConnect similarly avoids the cost and complexity of Wi-Fi and networking software development. As an added bonus, WiConnect also includes the Sensors.com API providing integrated cloud connectivity for device remote control and sensing.

WiConnect? Because ACKme makes it easy!
