Sierra Wireless designs modems that enable PCs, notebook computers, and vehicles to communicate wirelessly. Its products are used for Internet access, e-mail, database access, vehicle dispatch, and a range of machine-to-machine applications. Its product lines include AirPrime (embedded wireless modules), AirLink (intelligent gateways), and AirVantage (machine-to-machine cloud products). The company sells directly and through resellers, primarily to customers in North America. Manufacturers also embed the company's wireless modules into their computing products.

IoT Solutions

There exists an almost bewildering choice of connectivity options for electronics engineers and application developers working on products and systems for the Internet of Things (IoT). Many communication technologies are well known such as WiFi, Bluetooth, Zigbee and 2G/3G/4G cellular, but there are also several new emerging networking options such as Thread as an alternative for home automation applications, and Whitespace TV technologies being implemented in major cities for wider area IoT-based use cases. Depending on the application, factors such as range, data requirements, security and power demands and battery life will dictate the choice of one or some form of combination of technologies. HMS manufactures and markets industrial communication products under the following brands: Anybus, IXXAT and eWON. Anybus Solutions offers embedded network cards and stand-alone gateways which connect different industrial devices to industrial networks. IXXAT Solutions provides connectivity solutions especially for CAN, automotive and test systems while eWON Remote Solutions specialize in remote access, monitoring and management of field devices over the web.

Advantech has always been an innovator in the development and manufacture of high-quality, high-performance computing platforms. They cooperate closely with our partners to help provide complete solutions for a wide array of applications across a diverse range of industries. To realize our corporate vision of Enabling an Intelligent Planet, Advantech will continue collaborating and Partnering for Smart City & IoT Solutions.

NXP sees the Internet of Things (IoT) as billions of intelligent connections that will encompass every aspect of our lives and make our world smarter, greener and safer. They believe that the biggest opportunities within the IoT will be in the transformational shift from the computing nexus to highly intelligent nodes - when intelligence massively scales, and the nodes have the power to learn, adapt and communicate. NXP are a market leader in microcontrollers with a broad portfolio of ARM-based MCUs with a low power, high security and small footprint – all ideal for IoT. They are a leader in IoT infrastructure with embedded processors for wired and wireless applications. From the end node to the cloud, NXP provides an unrivaled portfolio for supporting the incredible growth of smart, connected solutions including microcontrollers and microprocessors, security, connectivity, analog and sensors, and RF.

Adaptive Wireless Solutions believes that wireless mesh sensor networks are starting to revolutionise the way industrial and commercial organisations monitor, manage and understand their processes and environment. By cost-effectively collecting, evaluating and analysing more relevant data, companies are able to: reduce operating costs, improve productivity, more readily comply with regulatory requirements. The Netbiter EC310 communication gateway connects to field equipment via several connection methods: Serial RS-232/485, Modbus RTU, Modbus-TCP or EtherNet/IP. The gateway sends data to the cloud-based Netbiter Argos data center via Ethernet communication. On-board I/O ports on the EC310 gateway provides the option to connect sensors and additional equipment to the system.

Building the Internet of Things requires more than brain power. Tapping into the promise of the IoT requires experienced partners, the right device-to-cloud solutions, and knowledge and tools from innovative thought leaders. The industry’s first platform to combine cloud, hardware, and managed connectivity services to support worldwide IoT deployments. Sierra Wireless provides all the services you need including pre-integrated IoT hardware, managed connectivity services and the AirVantage® Cloud, vastly simplifying the management and administration of your complex deployments. No other platform can get your IoT service to market faster.
