Hewlett Packard Enterprise or HPE (formerly HP) makes IT environments more efficient, productive and secure, enabling fast, flexible responses to a rapidly changing competitive landscape. They enable organizations to act quickly on ideas by delivering infrastructure that can be easily composed and recomposed to meet shifting demands, so they can lead in today’s marketplace of disruptive innovation. Year founded: 2015 (1939) Revenue: $53.0 billion (2014) NYSE: HPE
The Internet of Things (IoT) is exactly what it sounds like: a network of physical things that are connected to the Internet, whether the “thing” is a watering system, a baby monitor, a thermostat, a factory conveyor belt or anything in between. Every device and application you can think of can be connected through IoT, and when combined with the cloud. At HP, they are thinking about what this means for communications service providers. HP’s new IoT architecture for Communications Service Providers is designed to deliver a standardized end-to-end platform that will help create new services and drive value from the data they manage. HPE is accelerating the path to data monetization in the IoT market through a combination of our field-proven IoT Platform, world-class IP, and expert IoT services. HPE addresses the automotive industry challenges, helping to develop the car of the future quicker. HPE Mobile Virtual Network Enabler -- The new HPE Mobile Virtual Network Enabler gives customers greater control over IoT devices that need cellular connectivity and services. It will foster the emergence of new, specialized IoT Mobile Virtual Network Operators (MVNOs) that resell IoT connectivity directly to customers at price points optimized for large scale machine-to-machine (M2M) and IoT deployments. HPE MVNE provisioning, configuration, administration and billing services -- paired with wide area mobile network operator coverage -- change the economics of large-scale deployments by reducing IoT provisioning costs by up to 80 percent. HPE Universal IoT Platform Designed for massive scale, multi-vendor and multi-network support using the oneM2M Interoperability standard, the HPE Universal IoT Platform manages the HPE MVNE devices and provides multivendor IoT monitoring, reporting, and analytics services with carrier-grade reliability and scale. The platform supports long-range, low-power connectivity deployments such as LoRa and SIGFOX, as well as devices that use cellular, radio, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. New enhancements include: • Lightweight M2M standards support -- Delivers plug-and-play Interoperability between IoT devices and UIoT services. • Expanded device management -- Allows management of both SIM and non-SIM based devices across different systems, devices, and applications. • Increased LoRa gateway support -- Enables the use of multiple LoRa gateways with a common set of applications to simplify Device Provisioning and control in heterogeneous LoRa environments The Aruba ClearPass Universal Profiler and the Aruba 2540 Series Switches identify and inventory all IoT devices as they connect to the network, and drive down the per-port cost of wired IoT connectivity. The new ClearPass Universal Profiler automatically identifies the attributes of IoT devices as they attempt to connect to the network. This enables IT managers to catalog what IoT devices are on wired and wireless networks and assign the appropriate policies to each one. The Universal Profiler provides visibility and context regarding risk and performance issues derived via IoT devices. The Aruba 2540 Series Switches further protect IoT devices with unified role-based access. This feature identifies and assigns roles to IoT devices as they connect, prioritizing business-critical applications and controlling which network resources the devices can access. The 2540 Series Switches are optimized for small-to-medium density IoT enterprise edge deployments. Factory Asset Anomaly Detection and Remediation -- In collaboration with PTC and National Instruments, this Edgeline Systems offering enables early warning of potential failures, allowing maintenance techs to correct an issue before it becomes a major problem. Data Management at the Edge -- Developed with OSIsoft, this Edgeline Systems solution is designed for storing, managing and accessing time series data that is readily present in the operational technology and IoT world.
