Together, the companies plan to bring “smarter physical infrastructure capabilities to market” by enabling public sector authorities to securely gather, process, and analyze data collected through IoT devices. Their solution leverages Pitney Bowes’ cloud-based Confirm Intelligent Infrastructure Management solution and the Arrow Connect platform to quickly, efficiently, and securely process and analyze IoT-generated data captured through Arrow’s infrastructure sensors.

Arrow Connect offers a technology-agnostic, universal data-ingestion platform, while Confirm, which recently launched in the U.S., provides visibility of infrastructure conditions in real time, generates alerts, and issues work orders automatically to streamline management of infrastructure assets. For example, Confirm can receive communications from Arrow-enabled IoT deployments, such as storm drain sensors, to monitor the water and silt levels in the drainage network for a given area, and, if needed, automatically notify and send crews to investigate and resolve any issues.

“Arrow’s IoT capability spans design, build and device management across purpose-built IoT solutions and employs some of the best engineers in the world for connected technologies,” says Mark Taylor, Senior Vice President of Software Channels, Pitney Bowes. “This collaboration with Arrow allows Pitney Bowes to offer a more robust, IoT-ready infrastructure management solution on a global scale. This is a strategic move for both organizations, as our clients continue to demand innovation that collects real-time data and drives efficiency and responsiveness to their organizations.”

“The Pitney Bowes Confirm Intelligent Infrastructure Management solution already services 45 percent of the U.K. road network and 140 million citizens worldwide,” says Aiden Mitchell, Vice President of Global IoT Solutions, Arrow Electronics. “Pitney Bowes has a proven track record in Infrastructure Management and our partnership will bring scale to their ability to collect and process IoT data and turn it into real insight. Our alliance will create a pathway for our clients to create a truly smarter world to live in.”
