Delivering AI and security at the edge

Gateways can be as varied as the devices they help connect, with each gateway needing different protocols, connection methodologies and energy requirements to bring together the myriad of distributed parts that make up the IoT whole. Gateways serve critical functions such as data filtering and security and up to application code. Whether an app on a mobile device, a demo board, or even a connected sensor, gateways are critical to the functioning of the IoT—and Avnet’s deep hardware experience help connect your solutions to the cloud smartly and with security in mind.

SmartEdge Industrial IoT Gateway

SmartEdge Industrial IoT Gateway, powered by Raspberry Pi, helps simplify and accelerate adoption of IIoT applications. The gateway provides versatile connectivity with data intelligence for a wide range of industrial 4.0 applications.


An IoT gateway is a device or software program that bridges the cloud to controllers, sensors, and smart devices. All the data that moves to the cloud has to pass through the IoT gateway. While a sensor produces multiple thousands of data points at a time, the IoT gateway gives an edge to mine the data before it reaches the cloud.

IoT gateways also help protect data flowing in both directions from malware attacks like tamper detection, encryption, and crypto engines. We build IoT gateways that are capable of all these strengths along with the ability to minimize the volume of data that reaches the cloud. We also build sensors that talk to the IoT gateways that, in turn, communicate with the cloud.
