Avnet Asia, a leading global distributor and technology solutions provider, will be showcasing industry-leading smart city IoT solutions at this year’s IoT Asia 2018 event in Singapore with an exhibit at Booth CO2; and, with Lou Lutostanski, Avnet’s vice president, Internet of Things, speaking at the event on the topic of “De-risking IoT for the broad market: The role of the solution provider in aligning the ecosystem for success in IoT”.
The democratization of technology in IoT applications is bringing a wave of digital transformation and disruption. Lutostanski commented, “While this presents vast potential economic value in IoT projects, many organizations struggle to get their projects off the ground. Avnet helps customers to realize their IoT potential from the start, enabling the seamless delivery of innovative solutions to market through each stage of the IoT lifecycle.”
He added, “The IoT ecosystem comprises a broad range of players; from system integrators, service providers, and device manufacturers to cloud platform providers and components suppliers working independently.”
Avnet’s connected ecosystem effectively addresses this challenge by bringing these key players together, and by providing a holistic approach to drive future-ready innovation and sustainable smart city initiatives. Avnet’s full suite of IoT services helps customers overcome challenges related to design, connectivity, delivery, data analytics, project complexity and other issues.
