Avnet Opens Registration for Visible Things Industrial IoT SpeedWay Design Workshop Series

Phoenix – June 14, 2017 – Avnet, a leading global technology distributor, today announced that registration is now open for a series of interactive SpeedWay Design Workshops™ for designers of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) applications using Avnet’s SK002 Visible Things™ IIoT Starter Kit. The one-day, hands-on “Edge to Enterprise IoT Platform Speedway” training events, hosted by Avnet in ten cities across North America, will include a mix of technical instruction and labs developed by experts from Avnet and members of Avnet’s extended IIoT partner ecosystem.

The SK002 Visible Things IIoT Starter Kit, debuted at the Internet of Things World event last month, combines secure, integrated hardware and embedded software to connect smart sensors and embedded devices, via gateway solutions or low-power wide area networking technologies, to the cloud and smart enterprise software.

Each SpeedWay Design Workshop will feature technical experts from Avnet and Avnet’s preferred ODM partner FDI, who will provide attendees with training and hands-on product experience designing with wireless protocols and software to make connecting to the cloud easier.

“Avnet’s Visible Things technology ecosystem enables designers to begin product development at the API level, thereby eliminating many of the time and budget obstacles engineers face as they develop embedded products,” said Michael Lamp, director of IoT Solutions, Avnet. “This SpeedWay Design Workshop series will provide customers with practical experience using tools from leaders in the IIoT space to build secure, cloud-ready smart devices and systems for a range of industrial applications.”
