Kerlink and Electronica Elemon Join Forces to Accelerate IoT in Latin America

By Ken Briodagh

In a recent release, Kerlink, a specialist in solutions dedicated to the Internet of Things (IoT), and Electronica Elemon, an electronic components distributor in Argentina, have announced that Electronica Elemon is selling and installing Kerlink’s IoT solutions in Argentina.

Established in 1975 and based in Buenos Aires, Electronica Elemon serves the country’s largest cities, where it focuses on manufacturers and large businesses, and 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 Electronica Elemon with a strong base for developing a LoRaWAN-oriented business model. In addition to smart-cities, the company is focusing on multiple verticals, such as smart parking, smart lighting, smart agriculture, smart buildings, smart metering and waste management.

Electronica Elemon has installed more than 250 Kerlink gateways, primarily the Wirnet iBTS Compact, a highly scalable, outdoor LoRaWAN gateway, in Argentina and major cities of Latin America. 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, Electronica Elemon is well positioned to accelerate adoption of the Internet of Things in our markets,” said Daniel M. Garbarino, president, Electronica Elemon. “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.”

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