Our RapidConnect hardware and software makes it easy to add market-ready ZigBee, Thread, and other IoT connectivity to your products and access customers across multiple channels and platforms.
One Solution, Multiple Markets
Getting your product to the largest possible market means ensuring support for a wide variety of platforms. RapidConnect automatically adapts to different networks, enabling you to market and support a single SKU through multiple channels
Make Your Own Connections
You don’t have to choose between creating a solution for third-party platforms, and creating your own off-the-shelf product. With RapidConnect device connectivity, mobile app libraries, and a low cost bridge compatible with major cloud platforms, we have everything you need to offer your own direct-to-consumer connected experience.
Not just another wireless module.
Not just another design shop.
MMB Networks provides a best-of-both-worlds experience: the time-to-market advantages of an out-of-the-box hardware and software platform, with the expertise and customization of a full-service design shop.
All of our hardware solutions include MMB’s RapidConnect embedded software platform, and are backed by MMB’s integration support and design services.
Our goal is to get you connected quickly, affordably and reliably, to the markets you’re pursuing today — and tomorrow.
THE RAPIDCONNECT ADVANTAGE
Sell to multiple platforms, markets, and channels, with minimum SKUs.
Add connectivity to your devices within weeks.
Dramatically cut down the costs of product development.
Ensure market acceptance with proven connectivity and support
We've worked to create a solution that is as universal as possible. But we know that no two customers have the same needs.
Customers looking to integrate RapidConnect can do so completely independently, with MMB's assistance — or somewhere in between. Options include:
DIY with a RapidConnect Development Kit
RapidConnect Development Kits provide the tools and support to integrate RapidConnect into your products with your own development resources. This is ideal for customers with embedded development expertise, and new products that can make use of the RapidConnect serial protocol or Java API.
You can also take advantage of our hardware, software, and firmware developers to assist with your integration. From adapting RapidConnect to your device's existing protocol, to designing customized hardware, to full integration and application development.
MMB Networks offers additional support, providing access to the support and software maintenance services, including troubleshooting and identification of communications issues, diagnostics, RF capture reviews, liaising with test houses and partners, and interoperability testing support.
