There exists an almost bewildering choice of connectivity options for electronics engineers and application developers working on products and systems for the Internet of Things (IoT). Many communication technologies are well known such as WiFi, Bluetooth, ZigBee and 2G/3G/4G cellular, but there are also several new emerging networking options such as Thread as an alternative for home automation applications, and Whitespace TV technologies being implemented in major cities for wider area IoT-based use cases. Depending on the application, factors such as range, data requirements, security and power demands and battery life will dictate the choice of one or some form of combination of technologies. HMS manufactures and markets industrial communication products under the following brands: Anybus, IXXAT and eWON. Anybus Solutions offers embedded network cards and stand-alone gateways which connect different industrial devices to industrial networks. IXXAT Solutions provides connectivity solutions especially for CAN, automotive and test systems while eWON Remote Solutions specialize in remote access, monitoring and management of field devices over the web.

Hardware
Hardware that enables dual directional communication for data collection and control message delivery. Examples include cellular, Ethernet, and Wi-Fi.
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.
Products used by end users that contain IoT technologies. Examples include enabled equipment, wearables, hand-held scanners, and tracking devices.
Software
Horizontal applications are standardized (e.g., asset tracking). Vertical applications are tailored to specific needs (e.g., delivery fleet management).
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
IoT hardware consultancies provide services such as solution specification, product design, connectivity setup, and partner identification.
IoT software consultancies support the development of data analytics, visualization solutions, and platforms, as well as integration into embedded systems.
Examples of business consulting services include go-to-market design and execution, business model development, channel development, and corporate M&A.
