Dell announced the opening of its Internet of Things lab in Singapore, in conjunction with Intel – the first such facility in Asia Pacific. According to Dell, the lab will focus on enabling intelligent devices, speeding up the connection of legacy IT systems to cloud computing-based ones, and analysing big data for usable information.
With interest in Internet of Things (IoT) ramping up in Singapore, so are tech vendors eager to ride the wave. One such market player is Dell, which has just announced a new test site dedicated to the technology.
The hardware vendor on Tuesday unveiled a lab here to provide a platform for customers in Asia-Pacific, including Japan, to test proof-of-concept (POCs) IoT products. Its first such facility in the region and third globally, the Dell IoT lab was launched in collaboration with Intel, which associated products and services also would be showcased.
At the test site, customers will have access to Dell’s technical consultants while the vendor’s IoT industry partners, such as developers and independent software vendors, can build new products based on Intel and Dell’s IoT technologies.
“This facility will focus on enabling intelligent devices and gateways, speeding up the connection of legacy systems to the cloud,” Dell said, adding that it would also support analytics. The lab is located within Dell’s solution centre in city-state, and joins two other global sites in the US and Ireland.
