Dell expands its end-to-end edge portfolio with Project Frontier for operations

Dell Technologies has announced the expansion of its end-to-end edge portfolio with the availability of Project Frontier, an edge operations software platform. The software platform aims to scale edge applications and infrastructure securely. It supports various software applications, IoT frameworks, operations technologies, multi-cloud environments and future technologies, the company says.

Dell also introduced new edge products to help enterprise customers scale and manage edge deployments. For example, the tech company introduced Dell PowerEdge XR4000, a rugged edge server built to withstand harsh conditions, and Dell Latitude 7230, a rugged tablet.

“We’re seeing exponential growth in applications running at the edge, making edge the next frontier of business transformation — where devices, infrastructure, and data come together to deliver real-time insights at scale,” said Gil Shneorson, senior vice president of edge solutions, Dell Technologies. “With this growth comes complexity. It’s not feasible to have IT staff deployed at every edge location.”

According to the company, Dell’s Project Frontier provides its customers with Zero Trust-enabled security protection for their edge applications, data and infrastructure. Users can expect their choice of software applications and IoT frameworks supported by an open design concept that combines existing and new enterprise edge use cases. Through centralized management and zero-touch deployment, businesses can achieve greater efficiency and reliability for their end-to-end edge operations, the company says.

“Our decades of edge experience combined with our new solutions help customers simplify their edge and streamline their data to gain insights ranging from factory safety and the speed and precision of patient care in hospitals, while providing more choice in how they realize their edge and multi-cloud technologies,” Shneorson further added.

Dell further simplifies the edge deployment and monitoring process through its enhanced Dell Validated Design for Manufacturing Edge, the company says. This solution enables manufacturers to reduce edge complexities and streamline edge deployment. The solution also includes Dell-validated partner applications to improve factory processes and reduce waste for more sustainable operations.

The Dell PowerEdge XR4000 is a compact, rugged edge service that can fit into small spaces. It offers high performance and can support a wide range of edge workloads with its Intel Xeon D processors, multi-operating systems and optional GPU support. Meanwhile, the Dell Latitude 7230 rugged extreme tablet is a 12-inch machine designed to operate in both frigid and hot environments. With its Wi-Fi 6E capability, the rugged tablet provides reliable connectivity. It equips itself with optional integrated features, such as a barcode scanner, GPU module and a smart card reader.

Dell and Fujitsu recently collaborated to provide innovative OpenRAN technology for enterprises. These OpenRAN initiatives help communication service providers adopt Open RAN solutions more quickly so that they can stay competitive.

Dell also recently teamed up with Wind River to make it easier for communication service providers to move their networks into the cloud. They’ve developed a telecom cloud infrastructure that will cut down on deployment complications and help with the transition.
