Showcasing companies that are making the rounds in IoT manufacturing and deployment, this year’s iteration of Asia IoT Business Platform (AIBP) participated by Taiwan Excellence featured companies like Accton Technology Corp., Apacer Technology, Inc., Aver Information, ICP DAS, and IEI Integration Corp.

Accton, a best practice awardee for manufacturing quality, and Apacer, a leading producer of consumer electronics and digital storage software and hardware, both shared the latest insights in their IoT business journey.

“Accton has been in the industry for 31 years on networking. We manufacture products from Taiwan just like other product manufacturers, Cisco and Aruba. We have a go-to market which is Edgecore,” said Arnulfo Dimayuga of Accton Technology Corporation.

Dimayuga explained that recently, Accton managed to ink a partnership with Facebook with the latter granting the former a certification for Edgecore to promote across the country. Noting that the government is currently investing in big infrastructure, their company is also gearing towards that same infrastructure. 

“We’re doing IoT architecture right now, as seen in some of our products,” he added. 

The Edgecore Networks Corporation is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Accton Technology Corporation that offers both wireless and wired networking products for data centers and enterprises. Boasting its 1GbE, 10GbE, 25GbE, 40GbE, 50GbE, and 100GbE open and OCP switches that can handle either NOS or SDN software in a data center, Edgecore Networks was established in 2004 and runs HQ at the Hsinchu Science Park in Taiwan.

“This is actually our first time in the Philippines in the industrial sector. We are founded in 1997 and we have our consumer department here, that’s why some companies here know about Apacer and because our consumer products like USBs and hard drives are already selling in the Philippines,” shared Mike Wang, account manager for Apacer Technology Inc.

He further mentioned that with Apacer’s experience in the industrial sector, primarily in SSD and tier-one manufacturing, it enables them to provide more people with a reliable, cost-effective product. Aside from industrial-grade SSDs, Apacer Technologies Inc. also delivers digital consumer products as well as memory modules.

Just last month, they released the newest AC236 USB 3.1 Gen 1 portable hard drive series that has ultra-thin form factors and 1TB to 2TB large storage capacities while the larger capacity models reach up to 5TB. Apacer also upped their entries in the SSD department with the newest addition to the Apacer Gaming series roster, the Apacer AS2280P2 Pro M.22 PCIe “Panther” SSD with sequential read and write speeds of up to 1,580/950 MB/s.

With the exponential growth of Taiwanese companies invested in innovations such as IoT and many more, Taiwan is seeing an increase of technological centers and innovation clusters as well, making the country on its way to becoming a major startup hub in the region and a role model for the budding innovation industry in the Philippines.
