Amsterdam, February 6th, 2017: The DE7400XE is set to add greater capability to the digital signage market and conquer verticals which include video surveillance, data storage and Edge/Fog processing.
The massive amount of data being created by IoT applications are overwhelming legacy networks, centralized data centers and today’s cloud computing infrastructure. Real time decision making is key with incurring high network round trip cost and is rapidly driving demand for localized data analytics, data storage, video surveillance and data processing that cannot be met by legacy cloud technologies.
Thus, the IoT Market began seeking ways to extend cloud functionalities at the edge with new market requirements like rich media streaming & recoding, remote management, analytics and hi-performance computing. All can significantly maximize business investments in commercial space by bringing new immersive customer experiences.
