Hewlett Packard Enterprise has opened its new Global IoT Innovation Lab - Asia Pacific at its APAC headquarters in Singapore.

The new lab - be one of HPE's four such labs worldwide - will offer immersive Edge Experience Zones to demonstrate practical IoT use cases for industries such as oil and gas, manufacturing, engineering, healthcare, retail, smart cities and more.

The lab also provides a proof of concept environment to test the newest IoT technologies that best analyze data and develop solutions where data is generated at the edge.

Digital workplaces, intelligent spaces and the Internet of Things (IoT) are creating a leap in magnitude of the amount of data that will need to be processed. All of that data and the resultant action is taking place at the edge – a construct HPE calls the Intelligent Edge.

As the first and only Global IoT Innovation Lab in this region, the APAC lab houses co-developed technology solutions with local start-ups from the InnovateNext program, such as gridComm’s smart street lighting solution and XJERA Labs’ Artificial Intelligence-based image and video analytics solution.

“Intelligent processes and data analysis are being done today in places that are not bound to the confines of data centers or within clouds,” HPE VP and GM for servers and IoT systems Dr Tom Bradicich said.

“For companies to reach the full potential of the Internet of Things and edge computing, software-defined solutions that integrate both IT and OT are essential. At HPE’s Global IoT Innovation Lab - APAC, we will look to prototype, benchmark and test edge deployments confidently with our partner ecosystem, so as to enable smarter industries across the region.”
