The new reseller agreement further extends Arrow’s ability to support industrial companies embarking on the journey to full IoT integration and Industry 4.0. Arrow addresses every layer of an IoT solution stack, ranging from electronic components to IT solutions, including consultancy and development. Arrow’s portfolio includes sensors, connectivity, cloud, analytics, security and IT infrastructure.
