SHANGHAI, CHINA - Media OutReach - 26 June 2019 - Avnet Asia Pacific is showcasing its innovative Internet of Things
(IoT) solutions and applications at MWC Shanghai 2019 from June 26-28, ranging
from hardware to software-to-cloud connectivity solutions that enable the
development of IoT applications. With its comprehensive suite of IoT services
and technologies, Avnet helps its customers realize IoT business opportunities in
this new era of intelligent connectivity.
"China maintains high double-digit growth in the IoT market, which is
expected to reach 1.8 trillion RMB1 by 2020," said
Frederick Fu, president of Avnet Asia Pacific. "As a leading global technology
solutions provider, Avnet is committed to being the one partner for our
customers throughout the consult, develop and deployment steps of the IoT ecosystem
to bring their ideas to life. In the case of intelligent connectivity for instance,
Avnet collaborates with our ecosystem partners to develop customized
solutions that support an array of vertical industries including:
manufacturing, environmental, construction, retail, food processing and smart
At MWC Shanghai 2019, Avnet's intelligent IoT products and solutions are
showcased in two zones -- the Experiential Zone and the Technology Zone.
Visitors will get to see, touch and feel how innovative products are
applied to Smart Monitoring and Smart Retail at the Experiential Zone.
- 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: 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: Protects 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.
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. Azure's powerful security and connectivity protocols
give IoTConnect users the flexibility to develop and deploy apps and
solutions using their choice of tools, applications and frameworks.
Agile: 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): 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.
