10 Hot Emerging Vendors For February 2011


Company: Peep Wireless Technology

Tech Sector: Wireless Networking
Key Product: PeepApp

The Lowdown: Peep Wireless is looking to shake up the wireless market by creating a mesh network of connected mobile phones. Instead of relying on cell phone towers, Peep Wireless-powered mobile phones can connect to one another and piggy-back off of their respective wireless signals. Therefore, the company’s PeepApp software turns a user’s mobile phone into a sort of miniature wireless access point and creates a peer-to-peer network. If the technology works as stated, Peep is sure to get the attention of the major wireless carriers.
