Kerlink, Electrónica Elemon Partner to Accelerate IoT Adoption in Latin America

Kerlink, a provider of Internet of Things (IoT) solutions, and Electrónica Elemon, an electronic components distributor in Argentina, have announced that Electrónica Elemon is selling and installing Kerlink's IoT solutions in that nation.

Established in 1975 and based in Buenos Aires, Electrónica Elemon serves the country's largest cities, where it focuses on manufacturers and large businesses, as well as municipalities deploying smart-city solutions. The company also has sales offices in Miami to serve customers in other Latin American countries. With the second-largest economy in South America, Argentina provides Electrónica Elemon with a strong base for developing a LoRaWAN-oriented business model. In addition to smart cities, the company is focusing on multiple vertical markets, such as smart parking, smart lighting, smart agriculture, smart buildings, smart metering and waste management.

Electrónica Elemon has installed more than 250 Kerlink gateways, primarily the Wirnet iBTS Compact, a scalable, outdoor LoRaWAN gateway, in Argentina and throughout several major Latin American cities. Its LoRaWAN IoT coverage area in Argentina accounts for more than 70 percent of the country's GDP.

"Building on more than 43 years of experience supplying major industries with high-quality electronic components and equipment, Electrónica Elemon is well positioned to accelerate adoption of the Internet of Things in our markets," said Daniel M. Garbarino, the company's president, in a prepared statement. "Our experience with Kerlink in the City of Buenos Aires confirmed for our customers and us why Kerlink is a leading global provider of LoRaWAN networks, and why partnering with them will help both our companies."

"Electrónica Elemon is recognized as a very reliable business partner and supplier of high-quality equipment in Argentina," said Ermeline Lebon, Kerlink's head of channel sales, in the prepared statement. "Their thorough understanding of the vertical business sectors and their contacts will help position Kerlink as a leading provider of LoRaWAN solutions in what is becoming a very dynamic IoT market."
