The technological landscape is changing, and industries are seeing new opportunities to leverage IoT data. The demand for information is being met by implementing more IoT sensors, resulting in an increased volume of data that needs to be processed. As industries adopt new sensors, they need a way to manage their data, keep it secure, and visualize it
Dell Technologies produces the necessary hardware: the Dell Gateway 5000. These can be installed in any area—from traffic lights to public transit buses—and collect data from devices operating at the edge. The data is then managed and secured by VMware Pulse IoT software, which is running on the Dell Gateway. This ensures that data from increased number of sensors is properly encrypted and managed.
The data is then pushed from the Dell Gateway and VMware Pulse IoT software to Live Earth, where it is visualized in real-time. This allows users to see a holistic picture of the data they want to manage to make their approach more effective.

The combined power of Live Earth, Dell Technologies, and VMware Pulse IoT Center enables operators to focus their attention on immediate problems and harness the power of real-time visualization to resolve issues in a timely and effective manner.
