Research area Networks and Identification

Networks and Identification

The technologies from the business field “Networks and Identification” build the basis for many Industry 4.0 and IoT applications. Solutions from smart objects to cyber-physical systems are part of the extensive technology and system offerings. For optimal networks and identification, we adapt our technologies individually and specifically to our customers' requirements.

Our Technologies


s-net® - Wireless networking technology

Our solutions for self-organized, bidirectional multi-hop communication with localization allow radio-based applications such as wireless asset management, local process control in production, people tracking, monitoring of logistics chains and Smart City applications.


MIOTY® - My Internet of Things

For large-area data transmission, we offer MIOTY®, a robust wireless IoT technology that sets new standards in terms of cost efficiency, transmission reliability with ranges of up to 15 kilometres and battery life. It is used, for example, to monitor large production plants and entire urban areas.


RFID - Radio frequency identification

We evaluate RFID systems in special fields of application, e.g. metallic environments, and perform reliability tests using state-of-the-art measurement technology. We also develop complete RFID systems or subsystems.


Applications & Projects

Our solutions are implemented with the help of renowned partners - this is done in order to acheive the highest level of satisfaction possible.
