Dell demonstrating end-to-end IoT surveillance technology at ISC West
Dell Technologies has formed new partnerships and doubled its investment in the surveillance industry over the past year, and the company is sharing what it calls the “real-world impact of smart surveillance” at ISC West.
Edge-core-cloud-enabled solutions from Dell will be showcased at the conference with technical demonstrations and theater presentations of the new IoT Solution for Surveillance and IoT Connected Bundles, which were launched in August. The engineered, pre-integrated IoT Solution for Surveillance combines validated workloads, hardware such as sensors and cameras, and machine intelligence into a unified system, according to the announcement. Dell says many surveillance implementations are failing due to problems with system integration, performance, and leveraging back end analytics.
“Organizations are looking to integrated IoT solutions that bring together the storage, security, network, and management and orchestration,” says IDC Group Vice President Carrie MacGillivray. “Companies need to find a partner that understands these requirements and can help provide the piece parts to build out a holistic solution. Dell Technologies’ holistic portfolio of key IoT solutions and go-to-market options make them a solid partner for your IoT journey.”
Dell has partnered with leading technology, security, surveillance, software, and hardware to build a complete end-to-end infrastructure which it says leverages orchestration, automation, and virtualization. Implementation of the system is aided by support from validation labs with locations around the world, allowing Dell to be responsive to customers and partners while scaling validations.
“At the University of Southern Mississippi’s National Sports Security Laboratory, we are developing trusted practices for IoT and surveillance to support our forward-thinking 2025 initiative,” said Dr. Lou Marciani, director of the National Center for Spectator Sports Safety and Security (NCS4). “Our goal is to enhance better safety to millions of spectators who attend sports and entertainment events. The new IoT Solution for Surveillance is designed specifically to reduce the complexity of building, scaling, and managing these complex venues. We are excited to have the opportunity to test several case studies that might prove to be game changers for security in the future.”
The market for city surveillance is forecast by IHS Markit to grow at a 14.6 percent CAGR from $3 billion in 2017. Though not as comprehensive an integration as Dell’s solution, CyberExtruder and Hanwha Techwin recently announced a partnership to provide hardware and software for facial recognition surveillance systems.
