Research at Nextworks

Our company was born out of a wealth of know-how acquired through research, innovation and development of solutions in the field of telecommunications networks (at that time QoS in packet networks, MPLS, VoIP), providing specialised consultancy and software development for equipment vendors and telecommunications operators.

Over time, we have established a virtuous R&D&I cycle entirely in-house, through participation in a growing number of co-funded and collaborative projects, mainly in the European Commission's Research & Development Framework Programmes. We know that no know-how is of lasting value, which is why we continue to nurture it.



Research, development and innovation

Since 2006, we have independently designed and developed an IoT platform under our Symphony and Sealux brands. These products manage the infrastructure that enables the complete control and automation of intelligent structures in complex technological environments such as mega yachts, luxury villas and smart buildings. 

They support a wide range of sensors, actuators and fieldbuses, and implement rule-based control logic that interacts with a fully customised graphical user interface.

Public funding has always allowed us to maintain our independence in the choice of topics to innovate and develop, as opposed to any private investment.
European and collaborative
we believe in the value generated, especially at the level of innovation and recognition when dealing with innovation and recognition with other partners (both industrial and academic) of European and global value.

Virtuous circle

The brand of Nextworks as a reliable R&D partner has been consolidated on a European level, and the know-how we have generated since then has allowed us to keep our offer of specialised consultancy alive and attractive, and to inject new ideas and new life into our product portfolio.

Continuous updates

The internal activities are based on and coordinated with our R&D activities but are carried out exclusively with internal funding to give us maximum freedom in the choice of technology areas, level of innovation and final technological maturity.  R&D involving our internal activities, well selected and focused, is mainly aimed at the development of future products or the innovation of our Symphony and SeaLux
