By Zenobia Hegde

Avnet, a global technology distributor, announced its IoTConnect cloud-based software platform and a portfolio of smart, market-ready connectivity solutions built around the platform to help organisations jump-start development of IoT-enabled systems and services. Avnet will showcase the IoTConnect platform and a selection of innovative smart solutions at CES 2018, January 9-12 in Las Vegas, booth 2609, at Tech East, Westgate.

The highly scalable IoTConnect platform utilises Microsoft’s enterprise-grade Azure hybrid cloud computing service to enable the seamless distribution and analysis of data across cloud and on-premise systems. Azure’s powerful security and connectivity protocols give IoTConnect users the flexibility to develop and deploy apps and solutions using their choice of tools, applications and frameworks.

In collaboration with 14 leading suppliers across its comprehensive IoT partner ecosystem, Avnet has also developed a broad selection of smart, market-ready connectivity solutions that leverage the IoTConnect platform to tackle business challenges common to many industry verticals, including manufacturing, medical, environmental, construction, retail, food processing and smart city.

These digital solutions – Smart Factory, Smart Asset Monitoring, Smart Connected Worker, Smart Building, Smart Healthcare, Smart Retail, Smart Office, Smart Fleet Management and Smart Warehouse – can be deployed out of the box or tailored to meet segment-specific requirements. Avnet’s smart solutions combine advanced software capability with state-of-the-art silicon component technologies to transform real-time operational data into insightful information enabling more informed, strategic decision-making.

Loyalty or lock-in? Most smart speaker users won’t budge from Amazon or Google

By Zenobia Hegde

More than two thirds of current owners of Amazon Echo and Google Home smart speakers are planning to buy another smart speaker within the next six months, according to the latest research from Strategy Analytics.

The report, Smart Speaker User Survey: Brand Awareness and Ownership, also found that 75% of Amazon smart speaker owners would choose another Amazon speaker, and 69% of Google owners would choose another Google product. The report concludes that “this may simply suggest high levels of satisfaction, or a recognition that the technical platforms are different and that switching would involve unwanted complexity”.

Other key findings from the research include:

24% of respondents already own at least one smart speaker
Amazon and Google account for 94% of all smart speakers in use
More than a quarter of all respondents intend to buy a smart speaker in the next 6 months

“The early runners in the fast-growing smart speaker market look set to dominate for some time,” says David Mercer, principal analyst and the report’s author. “High customer satisfaction levels and the possibility of platform ‘lock-in’ will make it challenging for competitor platforms to carve out significant market share in the near term.”

“At this early stage it appears that Amazon and Google are successfully meeting customer needs, in spite of adopting contrasting strategies,” comments David Watkins, director of Strategy Analytics’ Smart Speakers service. “This is good and bad news for competitors: it will be tough to dislodge Amazon and Google; but new approaches to smart speaker design and user experience can help win over new customers.”

Strategy Analytics will be attending CES in Las Vegas January 9-12 where analysts will be available to discuss the company’s smart speaker research in more detail.

By Erin Scherer

2017 was an amazing year here at TeamARIN! We collaborated with guest bloggers from the community and subject matter experts inside ARIN to bring you lots of great content. As we look forward to a brand new year, we wanted to take a moment to look back at some of the most popular posts from 2017.

We’re always looking to improve what we do here and we wanted to share what we’re doing right – according to you! So, we rounded up the top ten posts our readers found to be the most helpful or interesting from this past year on TeamARIN. Enjoy!


16 Years with IPv6 – Torbjörn Eklöv, Co-Founder and Owner of Interlan, was an early adopter of IPv6. He shares the benefits of IPv6 adoption and offers advice to anyone who wants to enable IPv6 in their network with a static configuration from an ISP.

Tech industry Takes Strides Toward IPv6 – Looking back over the past year, we’ve seen some exciting news of increased IPv6 activity from major tech companies. While 2015 marked the year the ARIN region ran out of IPv4, 2016 marked the year more companies made a push toward its successor.

12 Steps to Enable IPv6 in an ISP Network – Jordi Palet Martinez summarizes the 12 fundamental steps necessary to achieve native IPv6 support and maintain IPv4 as a transparent service.

IPv6 is Not Optional – Mattias Lindgren, Senior Network Engineer at the University of Colorado Denver, details how he spearheaded the effort to enable IPv6 across two campuses and explains why adopting IPv6 is no longer optional.

Stop Procrastinating and Do IPv6 – Mike Milne of Carleton University takes us through the IPv6 planning process, highlighting why working on a complete end-to-end network design is enjoyable.

Let’s Talk About Quick and Easy Way to SWIP – James Ricewick, Resource Analyst, talks about a new, quick and easy method of submitting reassignments from your ARIN Online account.

Stay on the Cutting Edge with IPv6 – Rob Carsey explains how Monmouth University went from IPv6 zero to IPv6 hero in less than one summer and why IPv6 is important to stay on the cutting edge in the education field.

Using the Market to Obtain or Release IPv4 – A few pointers on how to navigate the IPv4 transfer market, whether you are interested in obtaining or releasing IPv4 address space.

Why Does DNS Security Matter? – Securing DNS is critical to ensuring online safety. We discuss the importance of DNSSEC and share the services ARIN offers to help you secure your reverse zones.

Implementing RPKI: It’s Easier Than You Think – Andrew Gallo, Principal IT Architect and Network Engineer at George Washington University, explains the importance of implementing RPKI and why it may be easier than you think.

We hope that if you don’t already have IPv6, you are including it in your plans for 2018. We have plenty of resources to help you achieve your organization’s goal in the new year. Check out our Get6 page to learn more. And if you are interested in contributing a guest post on TeamARIN, get in touch with us. We love collaborating with our readers and community. Happy New Year!
