HPE launches new innovations as part of IoT portfolio
The company will partner with Nokia to for cross-marketing and selling
HPE has announced new innovations to help organisations embrace the power of the IoT, specifically in industrial and enterprise environments.
HPE Mobile Virtual Network Enabler allows businesses to take better control of IoT devices that require a connection to mobile networks to operate. HPE predicts this will result in the emergence of new MVNOs specialising in IoT technologies that will resell their services to businesses at a reduced price and a reduction in provisioning costs of up to 80%.
HPE Universal IoT Platform has been designed for larger-scale, multi-vendor and multi-network support using the oneM2M interoperability standard. It offers monitoring, reporting, and analytics services for multi-vendor IoT applications across a wide range of devices.
"Cost-prohibitive economics and the lack of a holistic solution are key barriers for mass adoption of IoT," said Keerti Melkote, senior vice president and general manager at Hewlett Packard Enterprise.
"By approaching IoT with innovations to expand our comprehensive framework built on edge infrastructure solutions, software platforms and technology ecosystem partners, HPE is addressing the cost, complexity and security concerns of organizations looking to enable a new class of services that will transform workplace and operational experiences."
As part of its drive to become a leader in IoT, HPE has teamed up with a variety of technology companies to cross-market solutions. At its Discover Europe conference in London yesterday, the company announced a strategic partnership with Nokia, which will see both companies focus on the industrial/manufacturing and smart city sectors, helping businesses embrace digital transformation.
The two companies will cross-market and cross-sell solutions to their customers to help improve productivity in the production process and supply chain and improve operational efficiency in smart cities.
"We are pleased to extend our partnership with HPE to the IoT space," said Kathrin Buvac, chief strategy officer at Nokia. "HPE's market presence offers Nokia expedited and increased access to the enterprise market and target verticals along with a complementary portfolio of products and services."
