Digitalise safely

Our solutions for your applications

The pressure to digitalise the supply infrastructure is constantly growing. On the one hand, this is more frequently required by the relevant regulations. On the other hand, new market conditions, such as the energy transition and rising prices, require efficient grid operation and grid expansion, for which intelligent grids are needed. With the increasing digitalization of the networks, there are also new dangers that need to be considered and secured. This means that there are completely new challenges for utilities that need to be mastered.

Our areas of application

Sustainable digitalisation in all fields

Our platform can be used flexibly, making it suitable for a wide range of use cases. IoTree is already being used in many ways within the core area of supply management, as well as in the areas of Smart Facility and Smart City. In this way, we enable utilities to achieve savings, develop new business areas and additional revenues, as well as new municipal services. In combination with their own LPWAN-network, municipal utilities are becoming a driving force behind digitization in the region. With numerous partners, we have already implemented a wide variety of applications and contributed to a significant increase in resource efficiency.

What our network says

Quote 1

"With PHYSEC, we quickly and reliably set up a LoRaWAN network and put several use cases into operation on the IoTree data hub. We have been able to track short-circuit events in our medium-voltage grid since 2018 and have been monitoring the low-voltage grid since 2019"

Quote 2

"The cooperation with PHYSEC is a great enrichment for us. The seamless support and the direct exchange enable us to digitize the meter system quickly and securely. Due to the comprehensive understanding of PHYSEC with its platform loTree, the heat efficiency package was created, implemented and further developed. During the rollout, further exciting use cases were created that are being worked on continuously".
