By focusing exclusively on research and development, and outsourcing production from only the very best suppliers, we can offer the quality and innovation that help our customers improve their productivity, respond time more quickly to their own customers’ needs and expand their operations.
Internet of Things (IoT)
Internet of Things (also commonly referred to as “IoT”) is often used interchangeably with terms such as “Internet of Everything (IoE),” “Web of Things,” “Embedded Web,” “Machine to Machine (M2M)”, and “Industry 4.0.” IoT has been a hot term over the last few years, but few have managed to visualize it simply.
The u‑blox vision is to be the leading, industry‑quality supplier of communications and positioning components in the Internet of Things that Really Matter.
We bring to the table our core competencies as well as the synergies between our core product areas: cellular, short range radio and positioning modules and chips. Thus we can offer the answers to the questions of “what,” “where,” and “when.”
