CAMBRIDGE, England and BOSTON, Massachusetts, February 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Ember, a leading provider of low-power, wireless mesh networking technology, today announced the appointment of Texim Europe and Ismosys as channel partners for its ZigBee networking systems.

According to Bert Lutje Berenbroek, Ember's vice president of sales for EMEA, Ember is poised for significant growth in Europe fueled in part by smart grid regulations and climate change initiatives which are going to change the way utility companies and their customers manage energy and water consumption in residential and commercial buildings. The appointment of Texim Europe and Ismosys reflects a strategic realignment of Ember's sales channels to meet customer needs and to efficiently and effectively cover the entire process from customer acquisition to fulfillment and technical support, Berenbroek said.

In addition Watts asserted, acclaimed technological leadership has established Ember as the most deployed ZigBee platform globally. My team is looking forward to working with Texim Europe to propagate Ember's unique technology and extend its service levels to a rapidly expanding EMEA customer base.
