Partnership aims to bridge gap between existing industrial assets and infrastructure, and the digital world of mobile, cloud and IT.

Industrial automation manufacturer Opto 22 has joined the Dell IoT Solutions Partner Program—billed as a product and solution ecosystem for connecting real-world signals and industrial “things” to the digital world of information technology, mobile, and cloud computing.

The program brings together technology and services companies to help customers adapt to advancements in technology. Dell IoT partners are qualified to integrate industrial IoT hardware such as edge gateways and embedded PCs into full IoT solutions, and many also work with other Dell and Dell EMC technologies such as server, storage, and networking hardware, and software tools for security, manageability, data integration, and analytics.

The addition of Opto 22 to the Dell IoT Solution Partner Program aims to create an industrially ruggedized hardware platform, data visualization for mobile and web clients, robust industrial automation protocol support including Modbus/TCP and OPC UA, and advanced data flow processing with software development environments like Node-RED.

“Dell believes curated partnerships are critical in building the bridge between the exciting industry potential of IoT and profitable market reality,” said Jason Shepherd, director, IoT Strategy and Partnerships, Dell. “We are excited about our relationship with Opto 22, the industrial and process controls expertise they’ll bring to our customers, and look forward to our continued collaboration.”
