Digi signs global distribution agreement with Arrow Electronics

Managed services player Digi International has expanded its distribution agreement with Arrow Electronics to cover the global market.

The companies had previously had an agreement addressing the North American region but will now be able to service large multinational projects.

“This extension to our relationship supports Arrow's strategy to offer the very best products and services to its global customer base,” said David West, vice president of semiconductor marketing for Arrow (Englewood, CO, USA). “Digi [Minnetonka, MN, USA] offers end-to-end M2M solutions, from embedded products to cloud solutions, that enable customers to remotely manage all machines in their system.”

“Having access to the right mix of products and services is a leading advantage for anybody working to create M2M systems,” he added.

A statement released by Digi indicates that Arrow will distribute its embedded products as well as its Device Cloud by Etherion platform, which is designed to let any device communicate with any application anywhere in the world.

“This agreement is a great opportunity to raise awareness of Internet of Things and M2M around the world,” said Kevin Riley, the senior vice president of global sales for Digi.

“We believe this extension of our relationship will greatly strengthen our international reach, offering our joint clients the technology and services they require to build innovative products.”
