Avnet and ON Semiconductor Accelerate IoT Innovation with New Development Framework


Complete cloud-based ecosystem removes development obstacles for IoT device OEMs through trusted partners and state-of-the-art building blocks


 – 8 February 2020 – Leading
global technology solutions provider Avnet (Nasdaq: AVT) and ON Semiconductor (Nasdaq: ON), driving energy efficient innovations, have
joined forces to create a framework that helps OEMs more rapidly
develop end-to-end Internet of Things (IoT) devices. The collaboration simplifies
the process of building IoT-enabled devices through rapid prototyping system solutions
from ON Semiconductor that are preconfigured to connect to IoT application
developers and service providers through the cloud. Avnet’s IoTConnect® Platform,
powered by Microsoft® Azure and the associated Avnet IoT Partner Program
facilitate this connection. The first supported solution from ON Semiconductor
is the RSL10 Sensor Development Kit, which features the industry’s lowest power
Flash-based Bluetooth® Low Energy radio and an array of advanced environmental


Through this collaboration, Avnet and
ON Semiconductor remove as much complexity from the IoT development process as
possible. This allows OEMs to easily build products and experiences around
those products and bring them to market faster, while at the same time lowering
risk. Avnet and ON Semiconductor offer a selection of pre-integrated hardware
and software solutions with a range of connectivity options. Guidance on
building the solution is also provided for the purposes of simplifying and
speeding development and allowing the OEM to focus on building
market-differentiated solutions.


“With innovative, low-power system solutions
from ON Semiconductor alongside the robust IoTConnect platform, Avnet and ON
Semiconductor provide a secure development environment for jumpstarting any IoT
initiative,” said Wiren Perera, who heads IoT at ON Semiconductor. “IoT
presents a huge opportunity for OEMs to add autonomy to their products via
sensing, connectivity and actuation, which can create new revenue streams and
improve efficiencies. ON Semiconductor and Avnet can help OEMs drive innovation
forward by building smarter devices that address their customers’ needs.”


In addition, an OEM may need many new
skillsets just to get an IoT project started, making it challenging for one
company to get all the pieces to work together seamlessly. This includes
dealing with the complexity of a diverse and global supply chain required to
build then deliver IoT solutions.


“Avnet and ON Semiconductor are offering
solutions to meet the changing needs of OEMs and their customers,” said Lou
Lutostanski, vice president of IoT, Avnet. “We’re providing ways to help OEMs
stay competitive, maximize revenue potential, and design with the right
technologies to create secure IoT solutions.”

Webb Fontaine Announces Official Launch of Far-reaching Nepal National Single Window Trade and Customs project


DUBAI, UAE – EQS Newswire – 9 February 2021 – Webb Fontaine and the Nepal Government have officially launched the Nepal National Single Window system (NNSW). The Nepal Department of Customs, who are the lead agency in this project, choose as a launch date Jan 26th which is WCO (World Customs Organisation) International Customs Day to emphasise the synergy between the Trade Single Window platform and Customs clearance processes.    

Recently brought online the platform will interconnect 40 government and private agencies involved in Nepal international trade cycle. The new NNSW system will have a substantial impact on the country’s end-to-end logistics supply chain network and will boost its competitiveness regionally and on the global stage.

As the provider of the solution, Webb Fontaine worked closely with Nepal’s Department of Customs (DoC) and other major government bodies and stakeholders to set up the NNSW project.

A fully digitised online system, the NNSW significantly thrusts the operations associated with import and export practices through the use of AI and advanced technologies.

Powered by Webb Fontaine’s tried and tested technologies and network solutions, the NNSW system securely integrates a wide range of processes related to the smooth operation of the Trade and Customs cycle involving governmental and private organisations. 

The project is strategically aligned with a number of key initiatives, including World Bank sponsored Nepal India Regional Trade and Transport Project (NIRTTP).

The NNSW will dramatically reduce the processing time and costs associated with bringing goods in and out of the country. The NNSW system will propel Trade movements and will streamline processes by doing away with the need for traders to visit various government offices. Instead, all of the required registrations and fees can be processed via one centralised online portal.

Led by Webb Fontaine, the NNSW system has created a ‘one-stop-shop’ where Traders and Customs stakeholders can easily access services such as licenses submission and ePayments digitally.

The NNSW also offers officials in Nepal greater information about imports and exports, reduces any shortfalls in revenue collection and considerably boosts the financial viability and success of Customs operations. 

The NNSW will support the NIRTTP by completely restructuring the trade supply chain between Nepal and India. All of the NNSW’s key processes and procedures are applicable to the full scope of Nepal’s current cross-border trade commitments and future growth plans.

Webb Fontaine’s expert information handling and distribution technologies has laid a solid foundation for the continuing success of the NNSW system, which will facilitate ease of Trade, streamline border management and solve issues impacting transportation, timescales and logistics.

Singapore is the latest in DHL Global Forwarding Asia Pacific’s network to once again be recognized by IATA for the highest standards met by logistics providers for life science and healthcare (LSH) shipments


 – 9 February 2021 – As the furor around
the availability of Covid-19 vaccines grew late last year, the spotlight
quickly turned to the logistics sector and its capabilities in delivering more
than ten billion doses under stringent
temperature requirements worldwide. Concerns are well-founded, as the
bio-pharmaceutical sector reportedly suffers from an estimated USD35
billion loss annually

compliance, standardization, accountability and transparency across the air
transport supply chain. “Singapore is the latest in our Asia Pacific network,
along with Japan and China, to receive the IATA CEIV Pharma re-certification.
This is especially timely as several countries try to secure Covid-19 vaccines
to put a halt to the economic and social impact of the pandemic,” said Kelvin
Leung, CEO, DHL Global Forwarding Asia Pacific.


our teams continue to work closely with our customers to deliver these
vaccines, we appreciate that the accreditation is not only a quality mark of
our service and network, but is equally a recognition of the hard work and
dedication of our LSH specialists who work seamlessly across the world to
deliver best-in-class logistics services to our customers,” he added.  


 DHL has been actively involved with IATA’s
continuous efforts to adequately answer to the regulatory demands of the
pharmaceutical industry. At each location, IATA examines and compares the
station’s correspondence to its Temperature Control Regulations (TCR) as well
as GDP (Good Distribution Practices) guidelines from the European Union, World
Health Organization and other regulatory bodies.


the freight forwarder that was involved with bringing in Singapore’s first batch of Covid-19
vaccines, DHL Global Forwarding places a huge emphasis on delivering the
highest supply chain standards for our LSH customers. The re-certification of
the IATA CEIV Pharma on a corporate level and for our air freight station at
Changi Airport stands testament to our commitment to support governments and
the LSH sector during this crucial recovery period,” said Christopher Lim,
Managing Director, DHL Global Forwarding Singapore and Malaysia.

the DHL Air GxP (good practice) facility in Singapore successfully renewed the
quality label by exceeding the usual quality standards for transportation and
storage of pharmaceutical goods.


provides its worldwide employees with vital tools to understand and meet customers’
and regulatory expectations. In addition to implementing specialized training
program by IATA regulation standards across its key GxP (good practice) facilities,
DHL’s CIF Certified Life Sciences Specialist (CLSS) program equally provides
a comprehensive curriculum of mandatory trainings, functional courses, and
material to unlock the knowledge of this specialized industry. Like at all
temperature-controlled locations of DHL, every designated employee in Singapore
involved in such shipments have successfully completed the training and are
certified LSH Specialists. This ensures that sensitive shipments are handled
with utmost care and in compliance with the highest industry standards.


its international network, DHL offers a wide-ranging product portfolio at its Air
GxP locations that covers all client needs for time and temperature sensitive airfreight
shipments and provides seamless temperature visibility along the supply chain.

Courier”, the express service “Medical Express” with a fixed delivery time, and
“DHL Clinical Trial Logistics”, a logistics solution designed for clinical
