We founded Asimmetric to help IT and network professionals make WiFi, and the Internet, better for everyone. Millions of people run WiFi networks across the world, but most existing network tools are complex, intimidating, and aimed only at experts. We wanted a simple way to assure WiFi is working perfectly and help troubleshoot when it isn't. So we've spent tens of thousands of hours making our Sensors and Dashboards super easy to setup, easy to learn, and easy to use.
We changed our name to Cape because we want our name to reflect the simplicity we're working towards every day with our product. Cape also honors our origin. We founded our company in Cape Town, South Africa, where we spent more than a year designing, coding and soldering in a friend's basement, and where we continue to grow our engineering teams. Finally, a cape symbolizes heroism. As WiFi becomes ever more critical we're all relying on IT and network pros working behind the scenes, often without thanks, to fix problems, improve quality and make the Internet work better for all of us. We think that's heroic.
