Energous Announces Cisper Electronics B.V. as Distribution Partner in the Netherlands
Partnership with Cisper will expand Energous’ ability to reach more potential customers with its WattUp wireless power network technology for IoT deployments
SAN JOSE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Energous Corporation (NASDAQ: WATT), a leading developer of RF-based charging for wireless power networks, today announced Cisper, an international distributor of Automatic Identification and Data Capture (AIDC) products and systems including RFID, as a value-added distribution partner in Europe. Through its partnership with Cisper, Energous gains access to more system integrators, solutions providers, independent software vendors and OEMs building RFID-based IoT deployments across a wide range of applications.
“IoT deployments are expanding in every corner of the globe, bringing with them challenges around how to provide them with reliable power sources,” said Cesar Johnston, CEO of Energous. “As a value-added partner in the Netherlands, Cisper will help open new markets, new applications and new customers for our RF-based WattUp technology.”
IDC projects the global IoT ecosystem to grow more than threefold over the next few years, from 12 billion devices today to 39.3 billion by 2025. These devices will demand reliable power to function. Most, however, are currently fueled by batteries, which don’t all lose power at the same time, or by cumbersome charging cables and cords that present logistical nightmares and hidden costs to IT teams and large-scale IoT deployments.
“For over three decades, Cisper has helped global companies penetrate, promote and distribute their products across Europe,” said Arthur Fioole and Leon de Ridder, Directors at Cisper. “IoT deployments across a range of applications are quickly seeing their power needs grow, and Energous, which has been a leading company in the wireless power market for years, is well-positioned to help provide the market with a solution to this problem. We’re excited to become a value-added partner and source for their technology.”
Netherlands-based Cisper supplies RAIN RFID products to system integrators, solutions providers, independent software vendors and OEMs. RFID readers, antennas and tags are used to build RFID systems that improve processes in a wide range of applications and markets.
