The market potential for IoT products in this industry is huge. From the areas of critical infrastructures, remote meter reading and submetering, to unregulated use cases, economic added value can be sustainably realized. Not all IoT products in this industry are subject to BSI regulation and the relevant industry-specific regulations (FFVAV, Heat Cost Ordinance, Metering Point Operation Act, etc.) or "EU Security Assurance Levels High" for critical infrastructures.
The proliferation of edge computing structures will enable a wide range of new potentials to be exploited. However, new challenges and dangers are not absent from this development. Protection of the individual hardware components is an elementary aspect of the security concept and is required in standards and certifications such as FIPS 140-2, ISO27001 and the basic IT protection catalogs of the BSI. For use in critical infrastructures, the products must also meet the basic requirements of the BSI and the "EU Security Assurance Level High". We offer you the solution to ensure your IT security even for decentralized locations.
There is currently a real race to digitize production processes. A particular obstacle for European companies is the risk of data leaks, which can make production vulnerable and destroy special competitive advantages. In order not to lose the race and at the same time to avoid dangerous data leaks, secure IoT connectivity of all deployed products and components is more important than ever. Efficient implementation of the requirements of the "EU Security Assurance Levels Substanable" is the key to a strong competitive position and sustainable services.
Smart home objects make households intelligent and facilitate everyday life for residents. For example, users can control their heating system via a cell phone app or call up recordings from their surveillance camera on the go. But it's not just users who benefit - the technology approaches also offer manufacturers new opportunities, for example for remote maintenance by installers and in after-sales. The market research institute Juniper Research expects at least one billion networked devices worldwide by 2022.
IoT products for private applications are generally subject to high cost pressure and low technical user expertise. Efficient implementation of the requirements of the "EU Security Assurance Levels Basic" is the key to a strong competitive position and sustainable services.
"The cooperation between Gelsenwasser AG and PHYSEC GmbH is always constructive, characterized by a very high level of technical competence and an open, trusting relationship with each other. With this background, we have already successfully implemented the LoRa®TLS project for efficient remote meter reading, which we will continue to develop together in the future."
Stadtwerke Bochum Netz GmbH
"We have been working and developing together with PHYSEC in the field of Internet of Things since 2018. Together, we have quickly and reliably established an area-wide LoRaWAN® network within Bochum and use the data hub IoTree® to visualize and evaluate received data - without compromising on IT security."

"In the future of loT and edge computing, it will be more and more difficult to ensure that physical assets are protected by their operational environment. So we clearly see the need for a self-defending system based on PHYSEC's innovative surveillance technology."
