“Designing and producing an IoT solution is only half the battle. Successfully deploying these devices requires a reliable, flexible, yet cost-effective cellular network,” said John Salemme, vice president and general manager of Avnet Embedded. “Aeris recognises that there are fundamental differences between connecting ‘things’ and connecting people. Adding their built-for-devices network offerings to our embedded solutions will help our customers maximise the IoT value proposition as they take their new M2M products and solutions to market.”

We know that Avnet’s new service, together with Aeris’ platform and support, will not only simplify creating an IoT solution, but also help Avnet customers to bring those solutions to market much faster,” said Andy Greig, vice president of sales, North America of Aeris.
