What's New


2017 the year of the smart meter?

Today, with the number of devices forecasted to be connected to the internet, alternate networks need to be considered to anticipate how we can manage and track all the new assets that will be interconnected.


The IoT at home: NFC makes it easier to create smart environments.

The Internet of Things (IoT) isn’t just one technology – it’s many technologies working together to increase the automation, safety, and efficiency of everyday tasks. In smart cities, for example, the IoT involves a mix of technologies that create a greener, more connected urban environment.
