Arrow Electronics, Inc., announced that it will exhibit IoT solutions at Connect Expo held April 19 - 20, 2016, at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Center in Australia.
Integrated with intelligent control and sensing capabilities and robust connectivity, Arrow's IoT solutions enable innovators and developers to simplify IoT deployment for a range of next-generation applications, including robotics, cameras, medical devices, vending machines, smart home lighting, building automation, digital signage, casino gaming consoles, and much more.
Research studies reveal that by 2021, as many as 1 million IoT devices will be purchased and installed every single hour. Australia will be among the top-five countries in the Asia-Pacific region in terms of IoT spending and penetration. This level of density of deployment and use will propel endless innovative designs and ideas that promise to improve lives.
"It is encouraging to see that Australia has intensified its focus on IoT with a regulatory framework being established by the Australian Communications Alliance," said Natarajan MM, vice president of sales, South Asia, for Arrow's Asia-Pacific components business. "With our world-class design engineering support and supply chain expertise, we look forward to working with Australian IoT pioneers, enthusiasts, practitioners and implementers in guiding IoT innovation forward and accelerating deployment."
Among the IoT offerings on display at Arrow stand #43 are energy management smart plug, Wifi-controlled smart lighting and Arrow-built Dragonboard 410c. A low-cost development board based on the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 410 processor, Arrow Dragonboard 410c is certified compatible with Microsoft Azure IoT Suite, and bundled with Amazon's IoT Software Development Kit. This credit card-sized kit makes it quicker and easier for embedded developer communities, makers and hobbyists to develop product prototypes for IoT applications.
