Edge analytics for mobile and field applications
Dell Edge Gateways are intelligent devices designed to aggregate, secure, analyze and relay data from diverse sensors and equipment at the edge of the network. These gateways bridge both legacy systems and modern sensors to the internet, helping you to get business insights from the real-time, pervasive data in your machines and equipment. Headless, fanless and around 1 kg (2.2lbs), the 3000 Series is our compact gateway for challenging IoT mobile and field situations: single-application processing on manufacturing lines, cargo tracking and other truck/bus/train/marine transportation, retail kiosks, HVAC systems in building automation, managing green energy assets and more. Place them in challenging situations at the network edge.
Small footprint but big connectivity
Engineered with an industrial-grade form factor and solid-state drive, the Dell gateway can reliably run 24×7 with long life at extended temperatures. The right-sized 3000 series offers wide connectivity via Wi-fi, Bluetooth LE, optional cellular mobile broadband 3G or 4G LTE for select countries, or 10/100 Ethernet, including Power over Ethernet (PoE)
Easy on power usage
While designed for 24×7 use for many years, the new 3000. Series offers several features for reducing power usage, especially for transportation uses. By targeting I/O and single-application computing, we reduced power use in the 3000. The 3000 series offers an ignition wake pin and wake on LAN, with Power On/Standby/Hibernate when using DC power and can support power volt fluctuations down to 6 V. Wake-up events can include alarm, LAN, USB, ignition or direct ignition.
I/O and protocols targeted for use case
All models include a GPS, accelerometer and atmospheric pressure sensor for transportation and geo-referenced asset management. They also have 10/100 Ethernet and PoE. Depending on the targeted model, gateways may support wired (serial or USB) and wireless connections, like a GPIO, video/audio, CAN bus, dual Ethernet and zigbee for wireless mesh networks. Plus, all Dell gateways feature a TPM chip for hardware root of trust, secure boot, BIOS-level lock down of unused I/O ports and watchdog timer to provide device-level security.
Flexibility and manageability
Dell edge gateways are designed for the flexible manageability that IT requires. You can choose from Dell Edge Device Manager (EDM) or a third-party on-premise console such as Microsoft System Center, backed by the Dell Command Client Suite for both Linux and Windows.
