Arrow Electronics has announced an EMEA distribution agreement with The Things Industries, a full-service LoRaWAN (Long Range Wide Area Network) solutions provider.

Building on the synergies between The Things Industries' LoRaWAN network server, The Things Stack Cloud, and Arrow’s suite of related products, the collaboration will help reduce the total cost of ownership for LoRaWAN projects.

Through the agreement, Arrow will provide all three essential elements for a successful LoRaWAN project – components, LoRaWAN connectivity, and engineering services – from a single source. This integrated approach offers customers significant advantages, including cost savings, time efficiency, simplified procurement, and efficient support.

Vitali Damasevich, Director of Engineering, Eastern Europe & ESC EMEA, Arrow Electronics, said: “Customers can accelerate and streamline their LoRaWAN-enabled product development by pairing Arrow’s high level of support, from design, development and production and The Things Industries secure cloud provisioning.”

As a well-established LoRaWAN connectivity and services provider, The Things Industries assumes a leading role in the global LoRaWAN ecosystem. With a global installed base of over 50,000 gateways, 1.5 million connected devices and 500 enterprise customers, the company’s mission is to break down the complexities of LoRaWAN development, allowing for integration and interoperability across the supply chain and lower the total cost of ownership. The company envisions a platform for anyone who wants to become a LoRaWAN expert and build competitive LoRaWAN solutions.

Wienke Giezeman, CEO, The Things Industries, said: “Our LoRaWAN solution, The Things Stack Cloud, along with Arrow’s IoT hardware and software expertise, will help companies save significantly on upfront development and ongoing IoT operational costs, as well as reduce time-to-market.”
