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.

Internet of Things (IoT)

Under the designation Machine-to-Machine (M2M) or Internet of Things (IoT), these processes form the basis for efficiency increases, cost savings and operational optimisation. Fully digitalised processes can be realised with the M2M communication solutions of Axpo Systems and form the basis for modern IoT solutions.

  • Real-time data transfers between SCADA systems
  • Control centre couplings
  • Meter data transfers from meter data to processing system
  • Automated monitoring of data centres

Various applications


Axpo Systems offers M2M connectivity via its own crisis-proof fibre optic network (FOC), DSL connections, Long Range Wide Area Network (LoRaWAN) or via 4G/LTE mobile access technologies. Depending on the requirements, the appropriate technology is available for connectivity throughout Switzerland.

The M2M services include, for example, fast 4G mobile connectivity with prioritised data traffic and guaranteed bandwidth or narrowband LoRa connectivity via its own LoRa WAN infrastructure consisting of gateways (RF/IP) and backend application systems.

Axpo Systems also offers needs-based solutions in terms of security through secure Layer3 connections, link encryption options, redundant connection via independent paths and other security solutions.

With its M2M services, Axpo Systems guarantees reliable, secure solutions that are individually tailored to customer needs.

Machine-to-Machine (M2M)

Machine-to-machine (M2M) stands for the automated exchange of information between end devices such as machines, automats or vehicles with each other or with a central control centre, increasingly using the internet and various access networks (mobile or fixed network). M2M technology links information and communication technology. Communication between end devices, without direct human influence, enables companies to efficiently simplify processes. The number of end devices communicating with each other is constantly increasing and efficient M2M solutions are more important than ever for the future of companies.
