Dell recently joined the IoT bandwagon with its first product for industrial IoT, an IoT gateway to collect and process sensor data while keeping it secure.
- The gateway supports analytics at the edge of the network. Processing data sitting at the network edge allows making decisions faster, for instance, triggering a call for proactive equipment maintenance. This reduces the time and cost associated with transferring data to the cloud or to a datacenter.
- Dell also offers new big data and analytics solutions including its advanced analytics software platform and new Analytics-as-a-Service targeting banking, healthcare and insurance.

GainSpan is a semiconductor firm which has demonstrated expertise in low-power Wi-Fi modules and chips geared up for the fast-growing IoT segment. The company’s wireless connectivity solutions are already incorporated in millions of everyday products including weight scales, heart rate monitors, thermostats, door locks, refrigerators, ceiling fans, lighting, wireless speakers, security cameras, and more.
• GainSpan’s solutions are built around its ultra low power Wi-Fi chip (SoC), the GS2000, which the firm claims as the lowest power Wi-Fi solution for the IoT. The technology, according to GainSpan, ‘sleeps’ better and ‘wakes up’ faster than anyone else’s Wi-Fi making it ideal for battery operated devices.
• Gainspan announced a low-cost, compact Wi-Fi Minimodule for the IoT, the GS2200MIZ, which allows developers to add connectivity to their smart products, including industrial devices, smart home, and audio/video applications, such as battery-powered cameras and security systems.
• The company also offers application development kits (ADK) or reference designs which make it easy to add audio and video streaming capabilities to the ever growing number of IoT devices such as Wi-Fi doorbells, IP cameras, car back-up cameras, etc.
• GainSpan recently announced the Apple HomeKit Reference Design for developing Wi-Fi-Enabled, battery-operated Smart Home accessories. The IoT platform is based on the new GS2200M mini module featuring GainSpan’s custom Wi-Fi system-on-chip (SoC).
