Avnet’s (Nasdaq: AVT) second release of IoTConnect on Amazon Web Services (AWS) allows Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) to build intelligent Internet of Things (IoT) devices faster. This full-featured release now incorporates key features such as support for AWS IoT Greengrass, built-in dynamic dashboards, a smart rules engine, and Artificial Intelligence (AI) model management and deployment. These features benefit OEMs by allowing them to focus on the development of features and applications that truly elevate their connected products.
Building on the first release of IoTConnect on AWS launched in February, this second release helps OEMs of IoT solutions design their products more efficiently and reduce their time to market by more than 50%.
Avnet’s IoTConnect platform is created to seamlessly connect devices and gain insights from the collected data to make better business decisions. This full-fledged platform as a Service (PaaS) allows for device communication and management, data storage, app creation and enablement of robust security protocols.
Clear-Vu, a market leader in the design, development, and manufacturing of innovative LED lighting, is embracing Avnet’s IoTConnect. “We are excited to work with Avnet and leverage the power of AWS, as their robust hardware and cloud capabilities are poised to accelerate our continual journey towards creating innovative lighting solutions,” said Nick Russo, national director of Sales at Clear-Vu. “Their combined expertise in creating connected solutions and scalable infrastructure should enable us to enhance our product offerings and create transformative experiences for our customers.”
