Communication Technologies: Building the right connection

‘Communications’ is a pretty broad term. It takes a specialist to understand the nuances of the different appliances and industry standards related to each layer of the communications stack. You’ll appreciate peer-to-peer collaboration when you work with the Avnet team. As we learn about your strategy, we bring the right experts to the table whose hand’s-on experience lines up with your objectives.

We’ll show various techniques to reach your goal. In some cases this means different types of components to use in your board design or in others we present build versus buy server options. Our experts have developed communications products using a wide range of technologies, including:

Our design team brings the pieces together to achieve optimal performance using minimal bandwidth. We also work directly with the product developers and applications engineers at the suppliers whose products are part of your solution. As an authorized source for every product we represent, our team gets early access to new releases and is first in line for getting questions answered.
