Edge Gateway 5000/5100
Collect, analyze, relay and act on Internet of Things data
Dell IOT Edge Gateway 5000 Series
The Dell Edge Gateway 5000 Series is designed to aggregate, secure and relay data from diverse sensors and equipment.
Using Software AG's Apama Streaming Analytics, the Intel® Atom™ processor provides capacity to perform local analytics so only meaningful information is sent to the next tier, which could be another gateway, the datacenter or the cloud. This minimizes consumption of expensive network bandwidth and reduces overall solution latency.
Features and Benefits
|Flexible branding options or end-to-end||Specifically designed for original equipment manufacturers, an OEM-Ready version of the gateway is available, or ask us to enable a full IoT system for your specific business need. Talk to us about our cloud, servers, storage, networking and mobility solutions for IoT. We are experts in manageability, security, data integration, analytics and services for end-to-end IoT solutions.|
|Security built in||You can depend on Dell’s broad IT security portfolio. Dell’s gateways feature a TPM chip for hardware root of trust, secure boot and BIOS-level lockdown of unused I/O ports. Security is as much about best practices as it is features and Dell offers expertise to build security measures throughout your solution.|
|Flexibility and manageability||Dell IoT gateways are designed for the flexible manageability that IT requires. WindRiver is supported by Helix Device Cloud and Ubuntu and Windows IoT customers get their choice of Dell Edge Device Manager (EDM) or a third-party on-premise console such as Microsoft System Center, backed by the Dell Command Client Suite for both Linux and Windows.|
|Expanded I/O and communication protocols||Make the most of the equipment you already have and expand capabilities with new technologies. Connect broadly with the physical world using Dell IoT gateways, bridging both legacy systems and modern sensors to the internet. With the right physical I/O and our certified ISV middleware, you can aggregate and normalize virtually any data source, ranging from industry-standard protocols such as BACNet, Modbus and CANbus, to modern wireless mesh networks like ZigBee and 6LoWPAN.|
Use IoT to deliver maintenance efficiency
Gain a blueprint for your PdM deployment
Dell has developed a flexible architecture centered around the Edge Gateway 5000 with qualified partners for a complete solution. The Dell Edge Gateway 5000 enables you to collect, analyze, relay, and act on real-time data from machine sensors and generate accurate, dynamic predictions.
Features and Benefits
|Easily collect selected data||The Dell Edge Gateway is an industrial-grade, scalable solution for the Edge which works with a variety of critical protocols, data sources, and types of data.|
|Reduce the burden of streaming perishable PdM data on your cloud deployment||The Dell Edge Gateway can analyze streaming data in memory for real time response and filter out unnecessary data rather than relaying it to the cloud.|
|Combine and analyze data to gain precise insights quickly||Start by analyzing available data to define the parameters of normal operation for a machine. This enables the creation of rules through condition monitoring for analyzing the real-time data coming directly from machine sensors on the Dell Edge Gateway. With the Edge Gateway, analytics can happen as close to the machine as possible with the native I/O to collect data from industrial equipment and the ability to operate in harsh environments. After analyzing the real-time data, add historical and third party data such as reliability models and logs to uncover meaningful correlations, patterns and trends with the anomalies generated by the real-time data rules, to signal potential failures. The patterns can be used to further refine your rules and offer actionable insights in real time.|
With Kepware’s KEPServerEX® connectivity solution you get protocol translation that provides visibility to diverse data sets from PLCs, RTUs, meters, and SCADA systems which provides the foundation for PdM applications. KEPServerEX® feeds the data to the Software AG Apama® Edge Agent running on the Intel® Atom™ processor in the Edge Gateway and then on to the Software AG Digital Business Platform®. This ensures that perishable data is acted on immediately by generating alerts, and also makes certain that only meaningful data is sent to the cloud to minimize consumption of expensive network bandwidth.
|Software AG Digital Business Platform||You can complete your PdM deployment with only real-time data utilizing these edge elements, but Dell recommends that you also integrate structured and unstructured data to refine your PdM model. In the cloud or data center the Software AG Digital Business Platform® solution enables you to run big data analytics on the structured and unstructured data to identify even more granular patterns to predict failures earlier. The Software AG Digital Business Platform® also provides integration into your Enterprise Asset Management system for reporting, generating alerts, and automating maintenance dispatching.|
