About Fältcom

We connect the world through the IoT. Our smart system makes it possible for customers to monitor and control devices in one place on the globe from another. We help our customers save money and resources as a result, while also contributing to a better world.

Our technology can be used for an incredible number of different things. Only the imagination limits what you can do. With our open MIIPS platform and its apps, everything from vehicles to signs and buildings can be controlled, monitored, and analyzed. For our customers, this means reduced costs, better utilization of information, or entirely new functionality. Because our products are open, third parties are free to develop applications for our platform.

Today, we have over 160,000 installations, 40,000 of which are online, in buildings, vehicles, and customized IoT solutions. We are the market leader in Scandinavia for mobile platforms on buses, and every speed camera in Sweden is equipped with our technology. If you step into an elevator, it is probably Fältcom that ensures you can travel safely with a functioning alarm system.

We have tremendously knowledgeable and committed employees who often find solutions beyond the ordinary, all based on the customer’s reality. All development is done in cooperation with our customers and we take full responsibility for our solutions, from concept to finished product, all with top IT security in focus.

Fältcom started in 1998 in Umeå, where we have our headquarters. We are certified according to ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 and have a AAA credit rating.

1998  Fält Communications AB was founded by the entrepreneur Bo Stenberg, who previously worked with the development of Carephones in Telelarm Care. Bo brought safety alarm technology to a whole new industry: elevator phones.

2000 – The first MIIPS unit is being developed at Fältcom in cooperation with Ericsson, who supplied the GSM module for the unit. The origin of MIIPS was a prototype of a wireless IP router developed as part of the thesis work of the newly hired Michael Långström, now CEO of Fältcom. The idea was to create a wireless communication system for alarms. The idea to use the product for communication between machines to facilitate and streamline many other industries, such as public transportation, industrial automation and security, had already been formulated. The vision to use the technology to contribute to a better world was born.

2002 – The first cloud-based solution was delivered. Fältcom connected buses to secure timetables and positioning in Copenhagen. The same year, the first MIIPS unit was launched at the Cebit-exhibition in Hanover as a new item in Sony Ericsson’s booth.

2003 – In January 2003, Sony Ericsson asked Fältcom to demonstrate real-time positioning at the Comdex-exhibition in Gothenburg. During the summer of the same year, Fältcom launched MLAN in vehicles, now called Internet Onboard.

2004 – the first wireless elevator phone solution started being delivered.

2006 – MIIPS Generation 2 was launched, which came to be used in transport solutions, silo-on-line, real-time information in public transportation, and for positioning of vehicles for sanding and salting municipal roads.

2013  – Fältcom became the market leader in Scandinavia for mobile platforms on buses, and we opened a sales office in the U.K., Fältcom UK Ltd.

2014 – Reached SEK 100 million SEK in sales.

2014 – Fältcom was listed as one of the 50 most promising companies in the world in the Internet of Things by technology magazine CIO Review in the U.S.
