Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) on Wednesday announced new Internet of Things (IoT) systems and networking solutions – to analyze data in real-time.
HPE Edgeline IoT Systems is currently available in the U.S., Europe, the U.K. and Japan.
The enterprise networking major is relying on Intel for the latest IoT Systems announced today in the U.K. and the U.S. In future, HPE will rely on its own Moonshot system architecture. The future IoT systems will come with more features and investment protection.
“The new solutions today are important elements of our strategy of delivering more connectivity and computing power at ‘the edge,’ and helping customers maximize the value and minimize the risks from IoT at the speed of business,” said Antonio Neri, executive vice president and general manager of the Enterprise Group at Hewlett Packard Enterprise.
According to IT market research agency Gartner, the number of connected things will grow 30 percent to 6.4 billion in 2016.
HPE says it created the latest IoT systems in association with US-based technology major Intel in order to achieve the following.
“Moving computing power, data acquisition and data management to the edge of an organization’s network, outside of the traditional data center, allows faster access to relevant data, requires less bandwidth to transport useless data, and accelerates the time to insight for organizations,” said HPE in a statement.
HPE Edgeline IoT Systems 10 and 20 sit at the network edge, enabling customers to aggregate and analyze data in real-time and control devices and things.
The enterprise IT company is offering the latest IoT solutions in mobile and rack-mounted versions. The company has received certification to work with Microsoft Azure IoT Suite and will run Windows 10 IoT for industrial, logistics, transportation, healthcare, government and retail applications, said HPE.
HPE Edgeline IoT Systems products include:
HPE IoT System EL10 is a rugged price / performance-optimized edge gateway designed for entry level deployments and built with long lifecycle components.
HPE IoT System EL20 is a rugged performance-optimized edge gateway with additional features for higher compute capabilities and ease of installation, designed for more demanding high volume deployments and built with long life cycle components.
Future members of the Edgeline family will offer investment protection and scalability, as they incorporate HPE’s Moonshot system architecture.
