Hewlett Packard Enterprise Drives Intelligence at ‘The Edge’ with New IoT Solutions

New HPE Edgeline IoT Systems and Aruba Sensors expand IoT capabilities at the edge

PALO ALTO, CA and LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM – Dec. 2, 2015 – Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) today announced new Internet of Things (IoT) systems and networking solutions that enable customers to more efficiently collect, process and analyze IoT data.

“Hewlett Packard Enterprise has one of the industry’s most comprehensive portfolios of IoT solutions and services, offering compute, connectivity, data analysis, security and a strong ecosystem, all aimed at simplifying IoT for customers and driving business outcomes,” said Antonio Neri, Executive Vice President and General Manager of the Enterprise Group at Hewlett Packard Enterprise. “The new solutions today are important elements of our strategy of delivering more connectivity and computing power at ‘the edge,’ and helping customers maximize the value and minimize the risks from IoT at the speed of business.”

Gartner says 6.4 billion connected “things” will be in use in 2016, up 30 percent from 20151. The rapid proliferation of IoT devices, data and connectivity has the power to enable the creation of new offerings, improved efficiency, better decision making, and more effective risk management across organizations.

Increased Intelligence and Compute Processing at the Network Edge
Today, delivering business outcomes quickly and securely requires intelligence to enable real-time decisions at the edge. Moving computing power, data acquisition and data management to the edge of an organization’s network, outside of the traditional data center, allows faster access to relevant data, requires less bandwidth to transport useless data, and ultimately accelerates the time to insight for organizations.

As part of today’s announcement, HPE is introducing the first in a series of new systems. The new HPE Edgeline IoT Systems are the result of a joint partnership between HPE and Intel to help deliver proven, open solutions for the IoT market. The HPE Edgeline IoT Systems 10 and 20 sit at the network edge, enabling customers to securely aggregate and analyze data in real-time and control devices and things. Available in ruggedized, mobile and rack-mounted versions, the systems have been certified to work with Microsoft Azure IoT Suite and will run Windows 10 IoT for a wide spectrum of industrial, logistics, transportation, healthcare, government and retail applications.

The first new HPE Edgeline IoT Systems are available now and unify IoT data access with device management, configuration and control. Products include:

  • HPE IoT System EL10 – A rugged price/performance-optimized edge gateway designed for entry level deployments and built with long lifecycle components.
  • HPE IoT System EL20 – A rugged performance-optimized edge gateway with additional features for higher compute capabilities and ease of installation, designed for more demanding high volume deployments and built with long life cycle components.

Future members of the Edgeline family will offer investment protection and scalability, as they incorporate HPE’s proven Moonshot system architecture. Moonshot technology offers powerful computing capability while using significantly less energy and space than typical servers, which are important advantages for IoT.

A Guiding Beacon for Connectivity
Today Aruba, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company, is announcing the industry’s first cloud-based beacon management solution for multivendor Wi-Fi networks. The new, enterprise-grade IoT Aruba Sensor is the next wave of the Aruba Mobile Engagement solutions.

The sensors combine a small Wi-Fi client and BLE radio, which enables organizations to remotely monitor and manage Aruba Beacons across existing multivendor Wi-Fi networks from a central location using the Meridian cloud service. The new Sensors are designed to allow any company to introduce location-based services, using Aruba Beacons and Sensors at the edge, and the Meridian cloud service to interface with business and analytics applications.
