AUSTIN, TX: Dell announces the launch of new Edge Gateway 5000 series for building and factory automation sectors. The latest offering can deliver powerful analytics capabilities, expansive input/output (I/O) options and ability to operate in extreme environments.
The purpose built solution is designed for austere conditions of building and factory automation sectors. Dell’s Edge analytics leverages versatile gateways to determine necessary actions on data quickly. The Dell Edge Gateway is located at the edge of the network with local analytics and other middleware to receive, analyze and relay meaningful data to the cloud or datacenter, thereby, reducing the bandwidth consumption. With the announcement of Dell Statistica data analytics, organizations can extend cloud computing benefits to their network edge for faster and secure business insights.
The Edge Gateway 5000 is the latest entrant to Dell’s end-to-end portfolio of IoT enabling solutions and services that empower customers with choice and flexibility to architect IoT ecosystems with analytics at the edge, the cloud or the data center. Original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) can build their solutions on the company’s gateway. Building and factory automation users can leverage the solution to craft their IoT strategy which can span data center solution, advanced analytics and digital services.
The solution can be operated in locations with severe weather conditions such as deserts and boiler rooms. It hosts expansive I/O structure that is designed to bridge serial connectors and modern wireless networks to internet with expansion capabilities. It boasts security features such as secure boot and BIOS level lockdown of I/O ports and is compatible on operating systems such as Ubuntu Snappy, Wind River Linux, and Windows 10 IoT Enterprise.
“Organizations are struggling to make the best decisions regarding the data volume and complexity created by the vast numbers of sensors, embedded systems and connected devices now on the network,” says Andy Rhodes, ED, Commercial IoT Solutions, Dell. “As more of the data is processed in real time at the edge of the network, the gateway becomes the spam filter for IoT.”
