Market specific approach to IoT

The Avnet team never sees IoT as a technology or service unto itself. We see a number of technologies and services that are integrated around a specific market application. Using this approach our team understands the different standards and protocols that fit with the market. Our deep supplier relationships give us insight into which of our partners is best suited to support your requirements.

There’s no shortage of industry standards making their way into, or arising as a result of, IoT. Some standards are established and others are emerging. Some are competing and others have become the de facto one to follow. In all of these scenarios, you’ll never be alone trying to learn them yourself and figure which is best for you. The Avnet team is a part of many of the committees shaping these standards across communication, security and interoperability. Our team will share their experience, giving you the insight on which ones to align your solution with.

Our flexible approach also means we understand there is usually more than one way to accomplish your objectives. We’ll show you the various options and guide you to the one that aligns with the skills of your team, your business model and your time to market objectives. We can show you how to design a circuit board with sensing, processing and connectivity features or integrate off the shelf boards and modules into an embedded appliance.
