Internet of Things Infrastructure
The challenge with IoT is to securely and efficiently capture massive amounts of data for analytics and actionable insights to improve your business. Dell enables the flexibility to architect an IoT ecosystem appropriate for your specific business case with analytics distributed from the network’s edge to the cloud.
Dell Edge Gateway
Combined with our traditional endpoints, powerful servers and storage ready to handle the big data influx of IoT, and flexibility to run analytics in the right place, Dell is your partner for IoT infrastructure. Now Dell has innovated intelligent purpose-built Edge gateways with specific I/O, form factor and environmental specifications to enable capture, aggregation and analysis of data at the edge from a wide variety of sensors and equipment, and then to send only high-value information to the cloud or data center. The Dell Edge Gateway offers security and manageability tools along with unique features to help track and integrate data from legacy network protocols, control systems and machines.

Dell Embedded Box PCs
Embedded computers must run reliably 24x7 for extended deployments, and withstand higher and lower temperatures than ordinary PCs. Industrial, telecom, vehicular other use cases can bring high amounts of shock, vibration, moisture and high electromagnetic radiation. Dell has almost 10 years’ engineering experience in rugged devices. Dell Embedded Box PCs are fanless, highly reliable devices that can be used “headless” or with a keyboard, mouse and monitor. Flexible and powerful, with many input/output options, they run on powerful multi-core Intel® processors, which allow them to perform analysis, control and data aggregation and graphical display at the edge of the network. They communicate securely with back-end or closed-loop control systems.
