Arrow Electronics introduced a cloud-based energy management solution. The new solution from Arrow electronics is known to be powered by the narrowband Internet of Things (NB IoT) connectivity along with eight other IoT technology solutions
The electronic components distributor giant is said to cater the utilities and telecommunications sectors as they rev-up towards IoT-based technologies to optimize asset utilization, operation efficiency, and energy usage.
Arrow is aggregating a host of ready-to-deploy, cloud-based energy management and monitoring IoT solutions via a low-cost, long-range, power-efficient, secure, and connectivity powered by the narrowband IoT (NB-IoT) technology.
Arrow Electronics touts that the new cloud-based energy management solution brings many benefits from the use of IoT and sensor technologies for assets such as telecommunication towers, distribution transformers, and generators include reduced downtime, better predictive maintenance, and creating new consumption-based billing models.
NB-IoT is a standards-based licensed spectrum low-power wide-area (LPWA) technology using licensed cellular telecommunications bands, specifically designed for enabling a massive number of connected IoT edge devices or gateways.
Arrow VP Natarajan MM said, “Public utilities and telecommunications companies are facing challenges with their IoT deployments in difficult environments such as long distances, low throughput, long device lifespans, and deep penetration characteristics.
“Our ‘sensor to sunset’ IoT product lifecycle capabilities enable us to work with a vast network of developers and solution providers to effectively and accurately integrate and aggregate the key IoT building blocks and the optimal connectivity layer to put ready-to-deploy solutions together for delivering IoT benefits.”
