In a move which bolsters its Internet of Things offering to customers Digi-Key Electronics has added Senet’s LoRaWAN developer tools and connectivity offerings to it’s Internet of Things Resource Center.
The partnership simplifies the process for IoT application developers to access a full complement of Low Power Wide Area development kits, gateways, end sensor devices, connectivity services and other resources through a single online resource.
“Our customers demand the highest quality components and development tools for both prototyping and production deployments,” said Robbie Paul, Director, IoT Business Development at Digi-Key. “By partnering with a recognised market leader such as Senet to deliver LoRaWAN developer resources and connectivity services, we are able to confidently address the rapidly growing Low Power Wide Area segment of the IoT market.”
The announcement confirms the trend of electronics component distributors expanding beyond their traditional hardware sales models to provide access to rapid application development tools and network connectivity.
This approach allows IoT application and solution developers to drastically shorten their development cycles knowing they are working with components, development tools and network connectivity that have been pre-qualified to be interoperable.
“Access to Senet’s Network-as-a-Service and IoT application enablement tools through Digi-Key provides a true one-stop-shop for developers looking to bring scalable and secure IoT solutions to market,” said Bruce Chatterley, CEO at Senet. “We are proud to be working closely with Digi-Key to support their evolving business model and to provide customers with a proven set of development resources to speed time to market.”
Senet resources available on the Digi-Key web portal include access to pre-qualified LoRaWAN development kits, gateways and end sensor devices, direct access to a free developer account Senet Developer Portal, Senet product documentation, LoRaWAN use cases and customer case studies and webinar recordings
