SECURE, EFFICIENT AND EASY INFORMATION MANAGEMENT elfCLOUD secure information platform and server-hosting infrastructure services allow you to secure your data and manage it with ease and efficiency.

DEVICES FOR SECURE IDENTIFICATION SYSTEMS Do you enter your workplace by showing a card to a reader by the door or enroll work hours in a time and attendance system? Do you visit a library afterhours, showing your library card to a reader then typing a pin code? Any one of these uses RFID in systems that automate access and collect data.


desco Oy has been developing and manufacturing RFID readers in Oulu for over 30 years. Finland’s market leader, Idesco provides a large percentage of domestically-installed access control readers. Our readers are also found in many other kinds of RFID applications, in Finland and over the world. Approximately 40 Idesco employees work in Teknologiakylä Oulu, and in sales offices across Finland. Any Idesco manufacturing not Oulu-based is still kept in the EU, ensuring superior product quality. Indeed, reader reliability and durability through inclement weather is one of Idesco’s hallmarks. Some of our earliest customers still use Idesco readers they installed when we began in 1989, as one of the few pioneers developing and commercializing RFID. Today, while RFID’s beneficial principle has remained the same, its transponder memory capacity, data speed,



flexibility and other features have improved a lot. For example, years ago Idesco had already anticipated the industry’s recent focus on security concerns. Idesco had already been integrating powerful encryption algorithms and high security interfaces to defeat the most sophisticated transponder cloning or credential skimming attacks. It is why today, Idesco confidently offers readers not merely able to transact with users’ mobile phones, but do so while still meeting a very robust high security threshold with 128 bit AES-encrypted transactions and encrypted credentials buried deeply in users’ mobile phones. This lets Idesco provide both users and site managers a balance of the best: unmatched convenience and reliable high security. » idesco.fi

INTERNET OF THINGS IoLiving is a pioneering company to apply the IoT (Internet of Things) to several sectors of life. Tens of thousands of IoT devices have collected more than 1 billion data items in the cloud service. Small things are connected to the cloud by Bluetooth and LoRa wireless communication.


he power of IoLiving is proven by several use cases from various sectors, such as the following.

Food Safety: Temperature monitoring is used in restaurants. Information is always available through web browsers and alarms are sent to the user. As a result, productivity, food safety and food quality have improved. Construction Quality: Construction sites use the IoLiving service to ensure that concrete is properly dried. The concrete slab has to be sufficiently dry before the surface is covered; otherwise, moisture damage will develop in the building over time. Medication Control: A French mother had been wondering why her son, who had type 1 diabetes, was not feeling well despite taking medication. IoLiving



revealed that the temperature of the fridge had momentarily dropped below 0°C. This was important because insulin deteriorates when frozen. Potato Farming: A Polish potato farmer was aware that during the harvesting and grading of his crop, he inflicted more surface damage on it than did his colleagues in Holland. Using the IoLiving application, he measured the effects of his harvesting machine on the tubers and was able to identify the stages in the process that caused the damage. This resulted in improved productivity and a higher income.  www.ioliving.com

RADIO FOR GLOBAL COMMUNICATION KNL radio is designed for operational security, data transfer or just basic email. Satellite is the workhorse of maritime data communications, but at times, the data bandwidth is so crowded that existing applications suffer from poor service quality. In more remote locations, it might be missing altogether.


NL is a communications company that has created the first real alternative to satellite systems for maritime data communications. While at sea, the KNL radio transmits data over thousands of kilometres through its digital high-frequency radio to connect ships to shore. Once it is closer to land, the radio switches seamlessly to the KNL broadband service, using the local cellular services to provide an even faster connection. Each KNL radio forms part of a global mesh network, which provides truly global coverage – even in polar regions where satellite is subject to poor availability or where the satellite signal is congested from too much traffic. KNL’s communication system can therefore be seen as an enabler of new applications and business opportunities. It offers reliable, low-cost data streaming



of on-board data, improved route optimization with realtime global data and high-security communications through traffic encryption. » www.knlnetworks.com
