Simetric makes work, work better for people. As IoT deployments span thousands to millions of devices traversing global operators, traditional device connectivity platforms do not provide end-to-end visibility required for today’s dynamic management.
Our cloud-based platform Simetric abstracts operator-specific reporting differences at scale creating a symmetric layer where all disparate data attributes are normalized so the user can move beyond “sort and filter” and fragmented data into a synthesized and unified presentation layer.

You agree that the configuration and information contained in a Non-Production Instance, Apps and any information provided to you in connection with a Simetric event will be considered and referred to as “Simetric Confidential Information”). Notwithstanding the foregoing, Simetric Confidential Information shall not include: (a) information that is generally and legitimately available to the public through no fault or breach of yours; (b) information that is generally made available to the public by us; (c) information that is independently developed by you without the use of any Simetric Confidential Information; (d) information that was rightfully obtained from a third party who had the right to transfer or disclose it to you without limitation; or (e) any third-party software and/or documentation provided to you by us and accompanied by licensing terms that do not impose confidentiality obligations on the use or disclosure of such software and/or documentation.
Unless otherwise expressly agreed or permitted in writing by Simetric, you agree not to disclose, publish, or disseminate any Simetric Confidential Information to anyone.

A disclosure pursuant to the previous sentence will not relieve you of your obligations to hold such information as Simetric Confidential Information.
Certain parts of the Website may grant you access to certain proprietary content (including, without limitation, training modules, video presentations and audio recordings) that we may make available to you from time to time for a separate fee (“Paid Content”).
