Software

Filament provides firmware and software for provisioning and managing network deployments in any environment. Our technology stack enables secure communications and private exchanges between devices, making it possible for machines to interact with any other device or endpoint.

Simple Software for Network Management

Filament offers a lightweight interface for managing integrations, provisioning devices (via BLE) and monitoring network health. This interface is also accessible via mobile phones and tablets for network setups in the field.

Built-In, Always-On Security

The Patch features secure, hardware-backed key storage for on-device cryptography and authentication. Network communications are 100% end-to-end encrypted at all times. The protocols enforce strict privacy so that no content, identity, or metadata is ever revealed to third parties.

Data Where It's Needed

Devices can run basic scripting functions to optimize network operations, data sensing, and actuation. Filament's real-time REST/streaming API integrates with most cloud-based analytics and logging services, making it easy for applications to access data from the mesh network through a private cloud or over the Internet.
