KYOCERA AVX, a manufacturer of antennas and RF chipsets, has joined the IoT M2M Council (IMC), the largest trade association dedicated to the IoT sector.

The company aims to improve speed-to-market for IoT adopters with a holistic approach to hardware and connectivity in product design. For its part, the IMC will provide the company with access to its rank-and-file membership of product makers and enterprise users that deploy IoT technology.

“We are pleased to join the IMC ecosystem, the largest and fastest-growing IoT and M2M organisation in the world,” said Carmen Redondo, KYOCERA AVX’s director of global marketing for antennas. “IMC’s membership profile is heavy with people creating products with connectivity, which suits us very well. Whether it is through standard hardware, customisation or pre-certification services, our objective is to improve the development cycle and provide superior connectivity.”

Also of interest is the IMC’s varied footprint, with membership all over the world and from 27 different vertical markets.

KYOCERA AVX produces antennas that cover all major frequency bands, using a wide array of materials from PCB to LDS and more for embedded or external use.

“We believe that our product line, combined with our online tools, reference designs with major RF module manufacturers, and experienced engineering teams around the world, can support any IoT application,” said Redondo.

KYOCERA AVX will join the IMC’s IoT Infrastructure Pavilion to exhibit at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) next month in Las Vegas. The show attracts tens of thousands of attendees from crucial IoT sectors such as automotive, health and wellness, smart home, and smart cities.

As part of IoT Week at CES, the IMC will also be producing conference programming and organising networking and press events during the week, where Redondo will be participating.

The IMC is the largest trade group dedicated to the global IoT and M2M sector with over 25,000 IoT enterprise users, product makers, designers and apps developers that buy IoT products and services as members.
