Dell Technologies develops IoT surveillance solutions.

Dell Technologies' Edge and IoT Solutions Division has

announced new solutions to simplify the deployment of edge computing and IoT use


The new solutions combine technologies from Dell, Intel and

partners in the Dell Technologies IoT Solutions Partner Program. The solutions

are focused on computer vision using imaging sensors and machine intelligence

using analytics technologies and structured telemetry.

The solution set is intended to enable customers to make

business sense from large volumes of data from visual sensors, by using AI and

machine learning to develop automated analysis and insights.

The new solution set marks a collaboration with Intel, which

has helped advance these solutions with its computer vision and analytics technologies.

"Workloads and use cases for computer vision and machine

intelligence require different combinations of tools, but the computing

infrastructure elements are the same," said Joyce Mullen, president, Global

Channel, OEM and IOT Solutions at Dell Technologies. "Dell Technologies provides a scalable, secure,

manageable and open infrastructure - spanning edge to cloud - so customers and

partners can realise value today and build a foundation to support these

workloads and case studies in the future."

Cameras provide rich information about the physical world,

but the deluge of video data creates too much data for humans to cost-effectively

monitor for real-time decision making. Applying analytics, such as Artificial

Intelligence, to these data streams automates powerful, actionable insights. Events

driven by computer vision and analysed together with telemetry from machines -

including data that imaging sensors cannot provide, such as voltage, current

and pressure - results in even more powerful insights.

Because of rapid evolution in the IoT market and the fast pace

of innovation required to stay competitive, many customers now require an 'IT

grade' infrastructure. This should include a security-first perspective to

support scalability, data diversity and the increasingly complex needs of

connected devices.

By enabling computer vision with Dell Technologies IoT

solutions, customers can more accurately, efficiently and effectively 'see'

relevant information pertaining to areas such as public safety, customer

experience, and product inventory and quality. Surveillance is the first use

case to which Dell Technologies has applied computer vision, so customers can more

cost-effectively monitor events in the physical world and automate decisionC...making.

The IoT Solution for Surveillance is specifically built to

transform and simplify how surveillance technology is delivered with an easy to

deploy and manage hyper-converged, software-defined solution. Available later

this year to purchase as a package, the engineered, pre-integrated solution will

provide a consistent foundation from edge to distributed core to cloud. It will

also be ready to run on day one with customer data to speed the return on

investment. The solution is currently available as a reference architecture to

align systems and build a framework for computer vision learning and adoption

for other use cases.

Dell said that the new solution set also presents

opportunities to partners, and will be supported through the Dell Technologies

IoT Solutions Partner Program.

Through this program, Dell Technologies has identified

several partners demonstrating strong use case focus and clear return on

investment to create the new Dell Technologies IoT Connected Bundles.

The bundles include sensors and licensed software from

partners tailored for specific customer use cases, together with various

combinations of Dell Technologies infrastructure spanning edge gateway,

embedded PC and server hardware. This is in addition to complimentary software

like VMware Pulse IoT Center for securing, managing and monitoring these

solutions at scale.
