At MWC Shanghai 2019, Avnet’s intelligent IoT products and solutions are showcased in two zones — the Experiential Zone and the Technology Zone.

At the Experiential Zone, visitors get to see, touch and feel how innovative products are applied to smart monitoring and smart retail. The solutions on display in this zone include:

  • People counting solution: a smart IoT device integrating radar and narrowband IoT (NB-IoT) technologies. People counting and flow monitoring can be easily tracked from the cloud management portal to generate insights for subsequent management actions.
  • Smart plug solution: This removes connectivity limitations by changing the plug from Wi-Fi to NB-IoT, enabling the monitoring of different appliances or equipment in public areas. Through proper data training, machine failure predictions can be made via the intelligent cloud.
  • Water leakage monitoring: This solution can help protect key assets from flood-related damage. An easy-to-install water leakage monitor is connected to Avnet’s cloud portal for remote monitoring purposes, alerting the users upon any leakage detection.

In the Technology Zone, Avnet is demonstrating the latest technologies enabling intelligent connectivity. These include:

  • IoTConnect cloud-based software platform and connectivity solutions: A portfolio of smart, market-ready solutions built around the platform help organizations jump-start development of IoT-enabled systems and services. The highly scalable IoTConnect platform utilizes Microsoft’s enterprise-grade Azure hybrid cloud computing service to enable the seamless distribution and analysis of data across cloud and on-premise systems.
  • SmartEdge Agile: It is the industry’s first solution to help engineers and manufacturers deploy IoT projects on ultra-thin bandwidth networks. Enabling AI and security at the edge, the platform is ideal for developing machine learning applications such as predictive maintenance and remote monitoring devices.
  • eUICC (embedded Universal Integrated Circuit Card): It is a “plug-and-play” solution for flexible cellular connectivity. This future proof solution provides the ability to easily choose a mobile network operator (MNO) without having to manually change the embedded SIM card in their cellular connectivity-based devices, machines and sensors that are already deployed in the field.
