Dell Debuts Edge Gateway for IoT

Dell launched a new Edge Gateway 5000 Series designed for IoT aggregation for the building and factory automation sectors.

The Dell Edge Gateway sits at the edge of the network (near the devices and sensors) with local analytics and other middleware to receive, aggregate, analyze and relay data, then minimizes expensive bandwidth by relaying only meaningful data to the cloud or datacenter.

The unit can be mounted on the wall and can operate in locations with extreme temperatures like boiler rooms and deserts. It can bridge both legacy serial connections (RS-422/485, CAN bus) and modern wireless networks (Wi-Fi, 802.15.4 mesh).  Operating system options include Ubuntu Snappy, Wind River Linux, Windows 10 IoT Enterprise.
