Distributor signs up to IoT world tour
Arrow Electronics is participating in the NXP Smarter World Tour for the Internet of Things as a top level, Platinum sponsor. Arrow’s involvement will build on its own recently completed IoT in Focus seminar series, which ran in eight countries across Europe.

All the demos highlight applications and functionality that is key to the operation and growth of the Internet of Things (IoT).
Arrow’s exhibition area will include a system on module based on the QorIQ processor that simplifies IoT and smart device development.
Arrow is well positioned to advise and deliver end-to-end solutions for the IoT that are secure and scalable. Its engineering teams are trained to provide guidance on the aspects of IoT systems including sensors, low power microcontrollers, wireless connectivity, networking protocols, gateways, operating systems and security.
Arrow also has experience in big data platform management and Cloud solutions including device management, data analytics and visualisation.
Andrew Bickley, Arrow Technology Marketing Director – EMEA, commented: “The NXP Smarter World Tour is a fantastic way to bring demonstrations of IoT enabling technologies directly to engineers. Through it, we can show exactly how NXP and Arrow can help accelerate the development and adoption of IoT solutions and services.”
There will be dedicated Arrow stops on the NXP Smarter World Tour in Eindhoven, Netherlands (May); Stuttgart, Germany (June); and Bologna, Italy (June).
