Dell has opened its first dedicated Internet of Things (IoT) lab in the Asia Pacific and Japan (APJ) region, based within the Dell Solution Centre in Singapore.
The new facility, launched in collaboration with Intel, features Dell and Intel IoT solutions with end-to-end platform facilities allowing customers to test the products and consult with Dell technical experts.
This is Dell’s third IoT lab globally, following the successful launch of its labs in Silicon Valley in the United States and Limerick, Ireland.
The Singapore facility will focus on enabling intelligent devices and gateways, speeding up the connection of legacy systems to the cloud and enabling end-to-end analytics to turn big data into actionable information. It will allow customers to build, modify and architect new IoT solutions on active bench space within the lab and have access to Dell technical experts, while capitalizing on Dell’s ability to span edge to the data center.
Other partners within the IoT ecosystem, from developers to independent software vendors (ISVs) will also be able to benefit from the lab by having a working space to innovate using Dell and Intel IoT solutions.
“We see vast opportunities from IoT with companies benefiting by identifying new business models, increasing operational efficiency and fueling innovation,” said Glen Burrows, area VP for Dell OEM in Asia Pacific and Japan. “With a strong connectivity infrastructure and the government’s vision to create a Smart Nation, Singapore is the ideal choice for the location of our first IoT lab in the region.”
Prakash Mallya, managing director for Intel Southeast Asia, said the lab systems will be able to provide a solid blueprint for delivering innovations to market faster by reducing complexity and defining how smart devices will securely connect and share trusted data to the cloud.
