Avnet Introduces IoTConnect Software Platform

Published On: January 15, 2018Categories: Buzz, Uncategorized

Avnet, a Phoenix-based technology distributor, has rolled out “IoTConnect,” a cloud-based software platform with a portfolio of market-ready connectivity solutions built around that platform to help organizations jump-start development of IoT-enabled systems and services.

The platform is designed for distribution and analysis of data across cloud and on-premise systems, thereby enabling the development and deployment of a wide range of apps and solutions, based on the user’s choice of tools, applications and frameworks.

“Built on Azure services, Avnet’s versatile IoTConnect platform and its new Smart Industry solutions include powerful analytics, cognitive services, artificial intelligence and machine learning,” said Rodney Clark, vice president, IoT, Microsoft. “With these repeatable Edge to Cloud solutions both partners and customers will be able to take full advantage of the digital transformation opportunities IoT represents.”

In collaboration with 14 suppliers, Avnet has also developed a broad selection of connectivity solutions that leverage the IoTConnect platform. Targeted verticals include manufacturing, medical, environmental, construction, retail, food processing and smart city. These digital solutions can be deployed out of the box or tailored to meet segment-specific requirements.

“Avnet recognizes that concerns such as security risk, unexpected downtime, low efficiency and information latency frequently hinder organizations’ ability to capture the full potential of digitization,” said Lou Lutostanski, Avnet vice president, Internet of Things. “IoTConnect, supported by Microsoft Azure, not only helps mitigate these risks, but enables enterprises to generate intelligence that will make their organizations more productive, secure and competitive in the digital age.”

Avnet is planning a series of customer training sessions to help simplify the complexity of building IoT solutions and scaling them for mass distribution.
