Home / Company


Our company ubisys technologies GmbH was founded in 2006 as a hardware and software design house specializing in wireless communication and embedded systems. Ubisys was initially formed in December of 2005, as an individual company. The name is a combination of the words “ubiquitous”(everywhere, omnipresent, pervasive; latin ubique = everywhere) and “system” and stands for smart wireless systems in our surroundings.

In recent years ubisys has become a supplier of industrial networking solutions nowadays focusing on developing and manufacturing innovative home and building automation for energy-conscious customers and companies, who do not want to dispense with quality and comfort. Controlled by apps for smartphones and tablets these system are developed against the background of the future development of an intelligent power network (“Smart Grid”).

Even prior to its founding, based on a concept paper from 2005, the ubisys team was already being supported by the German Ministry of Education and Research [BMBF] by participating in the EXIST-SEED programm. The development of a radically new product range for intelligent building automation between 2009-2011 was yet another project being separately funded by the Central Innovation Programm for mid-sized companies (ZIM) based on a resolution introduced by the German Parliament.

ubisys RFID & NFC

ubisys has developed a series of innovative read/write devices utilizing the frequency at 13,56 MHz especially for industrial and commercial environments. Sophisticated technology and highest quality ensures a reliable and uncomplicated operation combined with easy handling.
In a nutshell: „RFID & NFC Made in Germany.”

The RFID & NFC products by ubisys offer unique features, e.g. different USB functions in one device. These devices are suited for the „Cloud” supporting web based applications or rather desktop virtualization solutions not requiring any driver installation, neither on the clients nor on the servers side. What makes this really interesting for industrial solutions besides high reliability and speed is its bulk reading capabilities and also the link quality indication (RSSI) between reading device and transponder.

Our in-house engineering team has realized various RFID and NFC custom solutions even in the 125kHz band. One can also add to that the integration of sophisticated ubisys technology into products of our customers.

Large enterprises such as BASF, Deutsche Solar and SSI Schäfer place their trust in products by ubisys as well as small and medium-sized enterprises, banks and even research facilities such as CERN.

ubisys Engineering

Engineering services by ubisys: Profit from the innovative powers a team of international engineers and designers with years of experience can offer you.

We have participated in various projects focused on developing the future power grid by consulting and supporting global players such as Renesas Electronics on designing powerline modems and protocol stacks, or having developed modern digital signature algorithms for EMH metering, a renowned manufacturer of smart meters.

The Gesellschaft für Schwerionenforschung (GSI) in Darmstadt picked ubisys as developing partner for the remote maintenance solution of their next generation ring collider “Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research (FAIR)” receiving fully assembled, tested and plug and play ready components from ubisys a supplier.

As the exclusive technology partner of Protegon we at ubisys took on the task of realizing the worldwide first, most modern emergency call system combining both tracking and photo features for smartphones and tablets — inlcuding iPhone and Android Apps, customer portal, accounting& payment transactions, linking it to a VdS-approved security centre throuh a special Client-application and setting up the neccessary IT-infrastructure.

These are only a few of the projects ubisys successfully solved in the past. No matter if analysis, concepts, hardware design, software developments or systems engineering: When partnering up with ubisys you do not have to worry about “development risks” any more. Due to our experience factors that might jeopardize your project will be pointed out to you from an early stage on.

We have also compiled a few products in the category engineering. Software libraries for cryptography, an IEEE 802.15.4 netzwork stack for 32-bit ARM controllers by Atmel and the matching ZigBee PRO stack. A very usefull tool for developers and installers of IEEE 802.15.4 systems at 2,4 GHz is our high performing yet at the same time also very affordable capture solution for Wireshark..
