"FMAB" is Fujitsu's architecture concept for blockchain technology.

The FMAB concept involves the use of different layers, such as data management layer for a blockchain and a business function layer for a business. The layers are seamlessly linked such that the blockchain can be easily used in an enterprise domain. The Hyperledger Fabric Framework is implemented in the data management layer while the business function layer includes data access control and participating members management in which a consortium can be easily established and used. These function aid in solving privacy issues and long standing challenges for the technology, and they reinforce trust among the consortium participants.

More robust security technology - Blockchain technology is characterized by ensuring security through verification of the transaction information by all network participants, thus preventing illegal activity. 

Faster processing speed - A blockchain transaction takes more time to process than a conventional transaction as validation by all network participation is required. 

Hardware
Processors provide the intelligence behind IoT systems and are often integrated into system-on-a-chip designs.
Sensors transform energy into electrical data; they are the eyes and ears of IoT. Actuators transform electrical data into energy; they are the muscle of IoT.
Technologies that enable legacy devices and other systems to connect to the IoT. They integrate technologies and protocols for networking.
Software
APIs are the market enabler for IoT. They allow users to manage devices, enable data transfer between software, and provide access capabilities.
Middleware integrates the diverse components of an IoT application by structuring communication, workflows, and business rules.
Data management solutions capture, index and store data in traditional database, cloud platforms, and fog systems for future use.
Security software provides encryption, access control, and identity protection to IoT solutions from data collection through end-user applications.
Services
System integrators link IoT component subsystems, customize solutions, and ensure that IoT systems communicate with existing operational systems.
IoT data management consultancies help to make sense of big data, decide which data to maintain and for how long, and troubleshoot IT issues.
Examples of business consulting services include go-to-market design and execution, business model development, channel development, and corporate M&A.
