IoT.nxt and Dell have clinched a strategic partnership that aims to help companies rapidly digitalise their business operations and make IoT solutions a reality.
“IoT.nxt’s intelligent edge IoT gateway, the Raptor, has been combined with Dell Gateway technology and through this enable rapid digital transformation,” says Nico Steyn, CEO of IoT.nxt. “We call it ‘IoT in a box’ and it provides an off the shelf solution suitable for any company in any industry.
“With this solution, companies can quickly see a return on investment and achieve digital scalability. It will allow them to fast forward unlocking efficiencies and drive earnings.”
He explains that IoT is premised on the fact that almost limitless processing is available in the cloud – but, by necessity a lot of processing still has to happen at the edge, which is where Raptor comes in.
“Our first question was how can we take this technology to the mass market. Partnering with Dell and Axiz allows us to take the technology and scale.”
IoT.nxt has patented a technology called SDDI (software-defined device integration), that can extend the capability of gateway hardware to take complexity out of normalisation, security and maintenance.
“We are driving to put more intelligence to the edge; we put a fraction of the data created into the cloud. For an IoT operation, it is just not feasible to send all the data up.”
Ben Vernooij, IoT and embedded computing solutions lead at Dell EMC, says Dell has developed partnerships to help customers rapidly implement IoT solutions, and this what the Dell Raptor will deliver.
“Customers can now speed up their IoT projects and make sense of the volumes of data produced at the edge,” he says.
