Dell's NativeEdge Simplifies Edge Deployments

Dell Technologies showed its NativeEdge platform. It helps remote-focused businesses deploy and manage their edge devices with less hassle. Dell also updated its Private Wireless program. It has a fresh software partner.

Dell's Project Frontier was replaced by NativeEdge. It was released in the fall. This platform simplifies edge infrastructure management through software, IoT, multi-cloud tools, and operational technology. It offers customers more choice. NativeEdge is an edge computing platform.

Dell's Gil Shneorson talked about the NativeEdge platform. It can add devices securely and manage them. It can also help with cloud application arrangement. The platform is good for edge devices. It makes sure everything is set up correctly.

Companies get a bunch of services managed by Dell or other accepted equipment. It's always the same, whether you plug into the edge devices or not. It works everywhere, even in factories, shops, and cell towers. It can handle lots of technology like Kubernetes and stuff. And it keeps everything safe with zero-trust architecture.

Shneorson explained that Dell has a catalog for customers to choose service options. Dell will send the hardware to the customer's location and mark it as the customer's property. The applications the customer chooses are automatically sent to and set up on the hardware.

We want to make things easier for our customers. We will use new technology to automate many things, from starting up devices to managing applications. This will save time and effort. It will also reduce the need for testing different concepts. We can combine lots of applications together but keep everything flexible. We can work with lots of different technologies and even team up with other companies. The customer can choose what hardware they want.

Dell's ProDeploy service has a "Flex" option for application deployment. Businesses can customize their edge deployment service needs using Dell's ProDeploy model and Edge Partner Certification Program.

Dell focused on the vertical market and targeting their pain points to sell edge solutions. The industries that mostly use edge solutions are industrial, retail, energy and defense. A problem and solution are similar across these industries. The solution is based on a distributed architecture with workloads deployed to remote devices that have networking and security challenges. There's a lack of skilled management for these devices.

Dell believes that big clients who buy NativeEdge for three years, having 25 sites, could gain advantages like this: managing 75% of their manufacturing edge assets.

In August, NativeEdge will be in 50 countries.

Dell Brings Druid Software To Its Private Wireless

Dell has added Druid Software to its Private Wireless program. The program was launched by Dell earlier this year. They have prevalidated private wireless products which provide options for operators and businesses that should work in a commercial environment without any issues.

Dell is teaming up with Airspan and Expeto for 4G LTE and 5G technology for bigger businesses. They're also collaborating with Athonet for small and medium businesses to pick their own network and wireless product.

Shneorson said that the update is for people who need to connect to many edge devices. You can use it as a service from a cloud provider or communication provider.

Dell made a deal with VMware and AT&T. The deal is about 5G mobile edge compute (MEC) package. It's for enterprise-focused on-premises private wireless services. AT&T will provide its cellular and 5G connectivity. Dell will provide its edge processing and infrastructure. VMware will offer its virtualization platform for telco.

Enterprises want results, not experiments. That's according to Doug Lieberman from Dell's Telecom Systems Business. They want a complete solution that they can build on to drive their business forward.
