Smart Manufacturingiotm2m-industry4.0

Smart manufacturing represents the next step in the digital revolution of manufacturing and automation. IOT / M2M technology is embedded into materials, parts and the machines building these, each “thing” has its own digital information now. Big data analysis and high speed communication will become more crucial than ever for evaluating the increasing amount of data. Companies have the possibility to become more efficient. Production can be further automated and this paves the way for self-optimization, self-configuration, self-diagnosis of machines, parts and material. Submit your solution and be part of the change, helping smart manufacturing to become even smarter.


New technologies are transforming the automotive industry, logistics and transportation processes with major implications for industry players and consumers alike. Whether it´s an innovative connected car solution, a logistics solutions connecting companies with their containers or trucks for easier and safer cross-border
trading, or navigation applications, tracking your objects live via GPS. New vehicle-to-mobile connections, vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure connections will revolutionize mobility. Let´s find these new ideas for the mobility sector.

Smart City embraces ICT solutions for the management of public affairs aiming to boost performance and comfort, reduce cost as well as the city´s resources consumption, and finally to be involved more effectively and actively with its residents. By implementing IOT into urban infrastructures, a wide range of benefits in the management and optimization of public services such as the structural health of buildings, waste management, air quality, traffic management and smart parking, energy consumption and smart lighting, can be reached. Be a part of the change and submit your breakthrough solution for smarter cities.


In the Internet of Things era security is a very challenging issue. Security solutions have to protect each and every asset, transaction, data access and API to guarantee data integrity and trust across the IOT environment. Additionally, a lot of security application fields can be addressed by Internet of Things / M2M solutions. From the surveillance of buildings, cars and public transportation to monitoring workers in risky environments, or early warning systems for earthquakes – IOT / M2M solutions provide the opportunity to improve security systems.


The Internet of Things and M2M communications play an important role in a wide range of healthcare applications, making possible not only to monitor the patient´s health but also to send the collected data to the physician´s, hospital`s and/or the family´s devices instantly. The demand for new and improved remote health and monitoring systems as well as the need to monitor and share fitness data is growing rapidly. Be part of the IOT / M2M healthcare revolution and present us your innovative solution.

Connected Home

Over the next years, homes are about to become even smarter– whether it´s thermostat, lighting, hi-fi system, blinds or your doorlock: they all communicate wirelessly with each other – at home, via smartphone, tablet, smartwatch or even with your car. Thus, connected smart homes become an increasing market booster for consumer electronics, telecommunications, building and the electronic industry. It´s a great chance but also a challenge for the industry. Reliable and smart IOT / M2M solutions for connected homes have a promising future.
