Atalum's IC partners are able to provide clients with a low-cost of entry to the ZigBee marketplace while OEM partners can accelerate time-to-market of ZigBee products by compressing the ZigBee learning curve and corresponding cost.

"We 'get' ZigBee and how to drive forward its adoption because we've always focused on this industry standard and not on trying to make proprietary systems fit a standard," says Sandra L. Wear, CEO & President, Atalum. "Making a standard ubiquitous means removing barriers, decreasing costs and understanding marketplace needs to provide a complete solution, and that's what we're doing."

Since starting in 2004, Atalum has maintained a singular focus on ZigBee with a corresponding long-term vision of providing software tools to control and manage ZigBee networks. In 2005 Atalum accomplished a number of goals that included completion of the ZigBee protocol on its own reference platform, launch of its ZigBee Starter Kit with API, partnering with a number of companies along with successful close of its first round of venture financing.
