Light Reading, Mike Dano, February 18, 2020
Dell Technologies today released a handful of new products specifically targeted at edge computing operations in the telecom industry. "We think the edge is an opportunity," Dell Technologies' Kevin Shatzkamer told Light Reading. Dell announced a new server (PowerEdge XE2420), a new mini data center module (Modular Data Center Micro 415), new controller software (iDRAC9) and a new ingestion and analysis offering (Streaming Data Platform) that are all designed to allow service providers to quickly and easily build edge computing operations. Dell's Shatzkamer explained that the company decided to target the telco space roughly three years ago. He said the company saw an opportunity there as operators moved their network operations from dedicated hardware to virtualized, software-powered systems that could work on off-the-shelf hardware. He said the first phase of the company's efforts involved working with telecom suppliers like Nokia and Ericsosn, but is now evolving to include direct sales of Dell hardware and software to telecom operators directly. Dell already highlights Orange and AT&T as telecom operator "partners." Shatzkamer admitted that, with its new products, Dell would compete directly with companies that also sell edge computing hardware, including Nokia, Erisson and others.
