The direct coupling of technical systems with the help of suitable communication solutions enables modern and fully digitalised processes. Devices communicate autonomously and exchange information with each other or with the control centre. Under the name Machine-to-Machine (M2M) or Internet of Things (IoT), these processes form the basis for increased efficiency, cost savings and operational optimisation.
Fully digitalised processes can be realised with the M2M communication solutions from Axpo WZ-Systems and form the basis for modern IoT solutions. These include, among other things:
Axpo WZ-Systems offers M2M connectivity via its own crisis-proof fibre-optic network (FO), DSL connections, Long Range Wide Area Network (LoRaWAN) or 4G/LTE mobile access technologies. Depending on the requirements, the right technology is thus available for nationwide connectivity.
The M2M services include, for example, fast 4G mobile connectivity with prioritised data traffic and guaranteed bandwidth or narrowband LoRa connectivity via a proprietary LoRa WAN infrastructure consisting of gateways (RF/IP) and backend application systems.
Axpo WZ-Systems also offers needs-based security solutions through secure Layer3 connections, link encryption options, redundant connections via independent paths and other security solutions.
With its M2M services, Axpo WZ-Systems guarantees reliable, secure solutions tailored to individual customer requirements.
Machine-to-Machine (M2M) stands for the automated exchange of information between terminal devices such as machines, vending machines or vehicles or between them and a central control centre, increasingly using the Internet and various access networks (mobile network or fixed network). The M2M technology combines information and communication technology. Communication between end devices, without direct human influence, enables companies to simplify processes efficiently. The number of devices communicating with each other is constantly increasing and efficient M2M solutions are more important than ever for the future of companies.
