Arrow Electronics has announced a team-up with AT&T Internet of Things (IoT) Foundry to leverage its whole range of “sensor-to-sunset” technology solutions and help customers get their products to market quickly.
Aiden Mitchell, VP of IoT global solutions at Arrow, said: “The AT&T IoT Foundry is a world-class facility designed to help companies bridge the technology gap and simplify the process of bringing connected products to market. Arrow’s capabilities, ranging from engineering to manufacturing and product deployment, are an ideal complement to AT&T’s work at the IoT Foundry. Arrow is proud to be part of the AT&T IoT Foundry program.”
Igal Elbaz, SVP of wireless network architecture and design at AT&T, said: “At the AT&T IoT Foundry, we help refine companies’ concepts for connected solutions, then convert them into tangible products and services through rapid prototyping. Working with Arrow will enable us to bring together some of the best people in the industry to innovate quickly and turn these ideas into economical, market-ready solutions. We welcome Arrow to the Foundry and are excited to create new products with our mutual customers."
AT&T has certainly been in the news around IoT in recent months. Back in November, the operator approved Altair Semiconductor’s ALT1210 LTE-M chipset to run on its IoT network. The approval furthers Altair’s commitment to AT&T and broadens the device and module partner ecosystem supporting LTE-M deployments. Earlier this month, Gemalto announced that its Cinterion LTE-M IoT module has won AT&T certification. The certification helps Gemalto in expanding the cellular connectivity possibilities for solutions related to IoT.
