Sirin Software’s embedded developers accelerate release of a new technology that makes the internet of things vision a reality.

Cirrent, a Silicon Valley startup, had a breakthrough technology to address two of the most critical aspects of connected products: ease of use and security. The urgent need for this technology was visible in the market, and Cirrent needed to rapidly develop a solution to help product companies make their products easier to use and more secure.

Cirrent had a small team of highly talented engineers, but needed to grow quickly to build a robust solution and hit the market window. With the labor market tight in Silicon Valley, and with the need for top-tier talent to make a high-quality solution, Cirrent needed a solution to scale quickly.

Cirrent evaluated a number of technology development partners to expand the team. After trials with a few different vendors, Cirrent was impressed with the quality, speed, and cost of the work by Sirin Software, and chose Sirin Software as its sole embedded development partner. From that time on, Sirin Software’s engineers have been a core part of Cirrent: committing and reviewing code, testing, architecting, designing, and talking with Cirrent’s in-house developers on Slack, email, and skype.

The Sirin Software team contributed to the design and implementation of the Cirrent Wireless Connection Manager (WCM) that helps to connect devices instantly and securely with no setup on the user side. There is no need for an I/O interface, keyboard, or monitor - products connect automatically and securely. All required setup is done during the manufacturing process so users just plug and play.

Cirrent launched the Automatic Internet Connection Service for Smart Wi-Fi products in May 2016, and continues to have the Sirin Software team as a core part of development for new features, bug fixes, testing, and solution expansion. Check the case study for more details.

Sirin Software’s engineering team was a core contributor to implementation and testing of Cirrent’s WCM (Wireless Connection manager), specifically working on:
● C programming for embedded
● Integration with dhcpcd, dhclient, wpa_supplicant, hostapd, and httpd
● API design and implementation
● Unit and module testing

Sirin Software accelerated Cirrent’s product release, and continues to be a core part of Cirrent’s embedded development team as Cirrent’s continues to scale to meet global demand.
