The agreement will enable organisations to take advantage of latest technologies to execute connected device strategies, using secure cellular services at scale
Arrow Electronics, a leading provider of technology solutions, announced that it has entered onto a global agreement with Arkessa and Infineon in order to further extend its ability to support customers with cellular communications for Internet of Things (IoT).
By working with Arrow, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), system integrators (SIs) and enterprises can get all the required technology and service elements to provide consistent connectivity for their IoT devices globally, supported by flexible network access and provisioning by Arkessa and security features from Infineon.
eSIMs offer greater reliability and security in multiple IoT applications. In addition, eSIMs can be flexibly coupled with cellular, LTE-M and narrowband (NB)-IoT solutions from Arkessa.
Leveraging latest technologies
Commenting on the development, Aiden Mitchell, Vice President – IoT, Arrow Electronics, said, “Cellular communication is an increasingly important strand of IoT. This new agreement will enable organisations to take advantage of the latest technologies to execute connected device strategies, using secure cellular services at scale, while staying focused on their own strengths and differentiators to create better outcomes for their customers and without being dependent on their clients’ networks.”
Andrew Orrock, CEO, Arkessa, commented, “The strength of this collaboration lies in bringing together market-leading technology partners to offer Arrow customers a world-class and future-proof connectivity solution. We are delighted to be working with Arrow and Infineon to deliver the secure global connectivity that allows customers to deploy their IoT applications easily, efficiently, and at scale, wherever their devices are in the world.”
Benefits to customers
Lars Wemme, Senior Director – Mobile Security, Infineon Technologies, said, “Deploying high-quality eSIMs from Infineon brings a number of advantages for a smooth adoption of cellular connectivity in IoT applications. Manufacturers of connected devices and industrial machines can optimise their product designs and simplify manufacturing processes, as well as global distribution, without compromising on quality and security.”
Arrow’s expertise in the IoT runs from modules, components and software that consist of the edge of IoT right through to cloud services and analytics that leverage the data created. It includes all the connectivity in between and the required security to protect the integrity of network and its data.
