IoT Gateways

Benefit from the advantages of digitalization.
With intelligent IoT gateways.

The networking of machines plays a key role in the implementation of Industry 4.0 concepts. Industrial IoT gateways help to integrate the various devices, sensors and protocols into a system and incorporate them into existing networks: OT meets IT.
Industrial IoT gateways enable a digital retrofit of machines and systems and form the foundation for applications such as predictive maintenance or digital twins. New devices or sensors can be integrated quickly and easily.

IoT gateways customized to your needs

Customized IoT gateways

Our Industrial IoT gateways have been specially developed for use in industrial environments. They enable simple integration and ensure security during operation.

We gladly develop a customized IoT gateway for you. Take advantage of our experience in the areas of hardware development, radio technologies, architecture, housing, storage and interfaces.

Rely on strong IoT manufacturers

Our portfolio also includes IoT devices that are ready for series production. Thanks to our technological expertise, we can help you find the best possible hardware solution. In addition to our tried-and-tested Janz Tec portfolio, we can also draw on the extensive portfolios of our long-standing partners.

One smart option is our powerful Janz Tec Raspberry Pi 4 with LTE option.

We cooperate with strong partners who provide intelligent IoT gateway solutions:

  • Teltonika
  • Kontron
  • Advantech

Networked charging stations

With Janz Tec’s IoT edge gateways, the charging stations are reliably connected to the company headquarters via mobile networks. In addition to the payment process, updates to the user interface, the display of advertising banners, and software updates are also handled. We also take care of SIM card management with optimised data tariffs, thus providing additional relief for the customer’s day-to-day business.


The status of the coffee machines is recorded and analysed using Janz Tec’s sensors and IoT gateways. This allows faults to be quickly identified and rectified in a targeted manner. Continuous monitoring also facilitates reliable maintenance and the timely refilling of vending machines.
With our solution, operators can recognize technical and logistical problems more quickly and react immediately. The Janz Tec IoT gateways ensure maximum availability of the devices.

Machine data acquisition

Machine data such as oil pressures and sensor values for mechanical wear are transmitted to a cloud platform via mobile communications. This data is transmitted in encrypted form to ensure that third parties cannot access the data. The customer benefits from an overview of current data and avoids previous manual work. In addition to the advantage of the automatic early warning system, the prerequisites for condition monitoring and predictive maintenance have been created.

Advantages of industrial IoT gateways

Our IIoT gateways have been specially developed for use in industrial environments. They enable simple integration and ensure a high level of security during operation:

  • Robust, industrial-grade hardware for particularly demanding requirements
  • Translating, pre-processing or buffering data
  • Support for industrial protocols such as serial (RS232/485) or M2M protocols such as MQTT or OPC-UA
  • High scalability thanks to long availability and easy retrofitting
  • Seamless integration of new machines and sensors
  • Secure data communication, guaranteed by e.g. digital certificates, individually configurable firewalls and other attack prevention options
  • VPN management
  • Data analysis and evaluation for process optimization and control.
