Dell changes economics of IoT with new Edge Gateway for small spaces
Dell Technologies has announced the new Dell Edge Gateway 3000 Series, offering customers flexibility, connectivity and real-time intelligence from harsh environments and small spaces. The 3000 Series includes three unique models targeted specifically for use cases and embedded solutions in the industrial automation, energy, transportation, and digital signage. With the 3000 Series Gateway, customers will be able to securely transfer and analyse important data at the edge of the network to glean real-time intelligence from the physical world. Ideal deployments include locations such as a vehicle, a refrigerated trailer, a remote oil pump in the desert, digital signs in an elevator or inside a roof-top HVAC unit.
Customers are looking for faster, real-time analysis of the massive amount of data produced by devices on their networks, to perform immediate, smart decision-making. For some, it’s too expensive to move all the data from the edge of the network near the devices to the data centre. Computing at the edge helps determine which data is interesting, relevant and needs to be sent back to the data centre or the cloud for further analytics and longer term storage, saving bandwidth and reducing costs and security concerns. Dell offers a complete edge to core to cloud portfolio of infrastructure for Industrial IoT solutions that includes everything from Edge Gateways, security and manageability solutions, data centre infrastructure and connectivity.
The Gateway 3000 Series joins Dell’s line of IoT-enabling hardware, including the Edge Gateway 5000 Series and Embedded Box PC 3000 and 5000 Series. All solutions benefit from Dell’s end-to-end support services, including the Base Hardware Warranty, or optional Dell ProSupport for up to five years, and Dell Deployment services. ProSupport on the Gateway 3000 Series includes proactive, automated support, 24×7 access to ProSupport engineers and Advanced Exchange to minimise downtime with a quick unit replacement. There’s also pre-qualification with 65+ technology and service providers in the award-winning Dell IoT Solutions Partner Program, inclusion in over 20 scalable, repeatable IoT blueprints and financing options through Dell Financial Services. The Gateway 3000 Series is designed by Dell’s expert team of rugged product engineers and put through a rigorous 10-step testing process in its IoT Labs. The product line was designed for scale per tens of thousands of hours of feedback through customer advisory councils, industry consortiums and market feedback.
The Dell Edge Gateway 3000 Series will be available in early summer 2017 in select countries, starting at €369/£319. For more information visit www.dell.com/Gateway3000 or contact your Dell EMC OEM Solutions representative.
