A strategic partnership between South African innovator in Internet of Things (IoT) technology, IoT.nxt, and global technology and computing hardware giant Dell will allow companies to rapidly digitise their business operations and make IoT solutions a reality.

This partnership combines the superior, robust Dell engineering with IoT.nxt’s world-leading innovation in IoT technology – known for its exceptional interoperability features – and is expected to become the new standard at the edge.

“IoT.nxt’s intelligent edge IoT gateway, the Raptor™, has been combined with Dell Gateway technology and through this enable rapid digital transformation. We call it ‘IoT in a box’ and it provides an off the shelf solution suitable for any company in any industry,” says IoT.nxt CEO Nico Steyn.

“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.”

The association with the trusted international Dell brand is likely to drive rapid adoption as companies know that their implementation will be supported by the vast and established Dell support offering.

“This Raptor in a box solution gives companies the ability to scale quickly as the Dell Raptor™ is already configured to be rolled out, yet comes with the support of Dell’s global network which offers warranties and superior service,” Steyn adds.

The IoT in a box will be distributed by Axiz, an industry leading value added distribution business that serves eight countries in Southern and East Africa. “This is an innovative offering for industry and we expect strong demand in our distribution networks,” says Axiz Executive Terence Barter.
