IoT Strategy

Starting from a Brainstorming & your Ideas, we analyse your current situation and goals. As a starting point of our collaboration, we formalize this analysis in a IoT strategy to connect your products and services to the world.

IoT Design

The next step is to convert the IoT Strategy into a IoT System Design. The design will be split into major and minor building blocks. For each building block, the best hardware, software and communication solution will be selected.

IoT development

Each building block from the IoT design will be carefully implemented. This implementation stretches the whole development spectrum: PCB desig, embedded software, mobile apps, desktop applications, webapplications, serverside processes and the set-up of teh cloud system.

IoT prototype, proof of concept & testing

The first physical IoT devices will be produced and each software part will be installed. This whole proof of concept set-up will be extensively tested and adapted untill all requirements are met.

IoT production

Now it is time to start the production process of your IoT devices. Together with our assembly partners your IoT devices will be carefully procued, tested and boxed.

IoT operations

Now it is time to run your IoT system. Our team of engineers can fully manage your IoT infrastructure. We will ensure that operate reliable and securely. We can provide you with 24/7 support and can even manage your device shipments.

  • Software
  • Cloud
  • Communication


A complete IoT ecosystems requires a wide range of technologies to seamlessly work together:


Electronics (hardware): Depending on your processing, communication and (low)power requirements, the best microcontroller design will be selected for your IoT device.


Software: Each system in the IoT development process is covered: embedded (firmware), desktop (Windows and mac os X), mobile (iOS and Android), web applications and server side Linux


Cloud: The cloud infrastructure to host your IoT application will be set-up depending on your availability and scalability needs.


Communication: We select the right type of communicatino for your product: ethernet, Cellular (GPRS, 2G, 3G, 4G), wifi, Bluetooth, Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), Zigbee, SigFox, LoRa, LoRaWAN, ...

21 Billion "Things" will be connected by 2020

Gartner indicates the market for Internet of Things devices is set to explode and will reach nearly 21 billion connected devices by 2020.
