About 25 years ago, Cees Links and a large group of the current GreenPeak team designed and developed the first wireless networking technology – WiFi.
Apple’s Steve Jobs was the first to see that wireless internet was what he needed to make the laptops special. Once Steve Jobs put WiFi in the laptop, all the other computer makers followed suit. Today, WiFi is everywhere.
Today, Cees Links and his team have developed the next generation wireless home network, ZigBee. Similar to WiFi, it is designed to connect together all the various HVAC, energy, security, home health, etc. sensor devices in the home and let the homeowner monitor and control them over the web.
In April 2016 GreenPeak was acquired by Qorvo a leading American semiconductor company.
