Electrical and communication network infrastructure distributor Wesco forms its Innovation Partner Ecosystem, while announcing the expansion of its IoT Advisory Services.

Wesco International (NYSE: WCC) last month announced an expanded portfolio of technology services designed to help customers, suppliers and partners navigate an increasingly dynamic global marketplace.

Complementing its existing products and services portfolio, the distributor's newly expanded capabilities include the formation of an Innovation Partner Ecosystem; the expansion of internet of things (IoT) Advisory Services; and the opening of a new solutions innovation center in Glenview, IL.

Per a May 24 press release, Wesco's newly formed Innovation Partner Ecosystem will work together to develop solutions to help customers achieve aggressive goals around electrification, automation and IoT, grid modernization, security, supply chain consolidation and digitalization.

Comprising a premier group of product and software companies, the distributor's consortium currently includes: APC, Arcules, Axis Communications, Belden, Bosch, Cisco Meraki, Commscope, Corning, Crestron, DMI, Eaton, Leviton Manufacturing and Panduit.

Plus, in its newly opened center-of-excellence facility, located in Glenview, Illinois, Wesco will develop, co-innovate and demonstrate technologies and connected solutions from strategic suppliers and its Innovation Partner Ecosystem.

In expanding its global IoT Advisory Services program, the distributor noted:

"As information technology (IT) and operations technology (OT) come together, customers across every sector are looking to gain real-time, data-driven insights into their businesses. Through our combination of IT and OT expertise, deployment support, installation enhancement services, broad portfolio of products and supply chain expertise, Wesco and its partners help integrators and end-user customers define a clear path to solving their most important operational challenges by harnessing IoT."

"Wesco's innovative digital solutions are another synergy resulting from the transformational combination of Wesco and Anixter and represent a key milestone in achieving our vision of being the best tech-enabled supply chain solutions provider in the world," remarked Wesco chairman, president and CEO, John Engel.
