Avnet Expands its Internet of Things Portfolio with relayr Solutions

PHOENIX, AZ --- Avnet, Inc. announces an agreement with relayr to deliver world-class internet of things (IOT) solutions in the U.S. and Canada. Through this agreement, partners will have access to relayr’s enterprise middleware platform, and powerful, simple-to-use tools that enable fast and cost-effective development of new solutions, equipment and services for IOT. Partners will be able to leverage relayr’s technology innovations and starter kit to help develop IOT solutions for their customers from prototype to roll-out, along with end-to-end support.

Now available through Avnet, the cloud-based enterprise middleware platform from relayr allows communications from any service, any software, any platform, and any sensor. Additionally, Avnet will provide its partners with relayr’s open source software development kits and industrial-grade sensor kits for rapid customer prototyping. For example, relayr’s Cisco IOT starter kit will be available through Avnet, which is designed to provide partners with a quick and affordable proof of concept to allow their customers to experience the advantages of IOT fog software for industrial deployments.

Principally addressing markets in manufacturing, smart buildings, retail, government, healthcare and energy, partners will have access to relayr’s solutions, which provide a unique full-service, end-to-end stack with an open API, streaming services and open source libraries for both hardware and software, facilitated by a step-by-step acceleration method. Additionally, partners can leverage relayr’s middleware toolset, consulting services, connections capabilities to different devices from different manufacturers, and abilities to provision software for building new sensor-based retrofitting solutions across any device and any “thing.”

Developing and deploying end-to-end IOT solutions can be complex and challenging. Avnet provides partners with a wide range of resources from the edge to the enterprise to develop IOT solutions that effectively gather information, connect to the internet, and securely manage and analyze data. Avnet will also provide extensive sales enablement and hands-on trainings for partners around relayr’s Cisco gateway product offering, relayr middleware, consumer-grade and industrial sensors.

Avnet’s approach to IOT exemplifies how Avnet is helping partners excel through specialization while capitalizing on the high-growth, next-generation technologies that are redefining the future. In addition to IOT, partners can leverage Avnet’s in-depth expertise in complementary technology market segments, including the cloud, cognitive computing, the data center, data analytics, mobility, security and enterprise networking.
