Vodafone, Arrow Electronics Link Up With IoT Agreement
Vodafone has announced that Arrow Electronics will become the first electronics components distributor to integrate Vodafone's Internet of Things technology into its IoT Things eVolved initiative, as well as Arrow's range of dedicated IoT modules and developer kits globally.

Arrow Electronics will sell Vodafone's global IoT SIM and offer Vodafone-managed connectivity as part of its eVolve IoT initiative. Arrow's eVolve offering combines hardware and software capabilities to simplify how original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), enterprises and suppliers build, deploy and manage connected and intelligent systems. eVolve is an end-to-end framework enabling businesses to deploy, manage, monitor, analyze and monetize secure connected devices throughout their life cycle.

According to the companies, the combination of Arrow and Vodafone solutions provides global network coverage, wireless and embedded edge technologies, systems integration, data platform and cloud integration, enterprise computing, IoT edge device connectivity and application enablement for millions of connected devices. The agreement will allow Arrow to market and resell network services tailored to customer applications.

"A strong ecosystem will be a significant driver to the future success of the IoT, and we believe that relationships like this with Arrow Electronics will help to shape the sector," said Ivo Rook, Vodafone's Internet of Things director, in a prepared statement. "The global reach of Arrow is matched by the world-class IoT capabilities of Vodafone."

Aiden Mitchell, Arrow Electronics' VP of IoT global solutions, added in the statement, "We are all about providing the best components and the best service to our customers. Vodafone is a committed leader in IoT. We believe that this will be a relationship that will go from strength to strength."
