Arrow Electronics has announced a global agreement with Infineon and Arkessa to further extend Arrow’s ability to support customers with cellular communications for the Internet of Things (IoT).
Currently, security remains one of the top concerns for organizations for connected devices. Keeping that as a priority, Infineon provides the secured hardware controllers based on GSMA’s Embedded Subscriber Identity Module (eSIM) specification that underpins the new service while Arkessa provides secured mobile data services with the ability to provision and manage IoT devices from the factory into the field easily and effectively.
With the new collaboration with Arrow, OEMs, system integrators and enterprises can obtain all the technology and service elements required to provide consistent connectivity for their IoT devices anywhere in the world, underpinned by security features from Infineon and flexible network access and provisioning by Arkessa. eSIMs provide for greater security and reliability in multiple IoT applications and can be flexibly coupled with cellular, NB-IoT, and LTE-M services from Arkessa.
Andrew Orrock, CEO Arkessa, said, “The strength of this collaboration lies in bringing together market-leading technology partners to offer Arrow customers a world-class and future-proof connectivity solution. We are delighted to be working with Arrow and Infineon to deliver the secure global connectivity that allows customers to deploy their IoT applications easily, efficiently, and at scale, wherever their devices are in the world. “
Lars Wemme, senior director of mobile security, Infineon Technologies, said, “Deploying high-quality eSIMs from Infineon brings a number of advantages for a smooth adoption of cellular connectivity in IoT applications. Manufacturers of connected devices and industrial machines can optimize their product designs and simplify manufacturing processes, as well as global distribution, without compromising on quality and security.”
Aiden Mitchell, vice president IoT, Arrow Electronics, said, “Cellular communication is an increasingly important strand of IoT. This new agreement will enable organizations to take advantage of the latest technologies to execute connected device strategies, using secure cellular services at scale, while staying focused on their own strengths and differentiators to create better outcomes for their customers and without being dependent on their clients’ networks.”
