HARTS includes a set of solutions that are based on the HARTS Reference Model. Solutions are specified as including a communications profile and a data profile. Solutions are affiliated with the geopolitical region in which they are relevant.

Each solution identifies the standards related to each area of the HARTS Reference Model. A single solution may identify sets of alternative standards for a given area of the HARTS Reference Model. For example, this allows the production of a single solution to support any physical access media for Internet-based communications.
