Dell Technologies and PTC have partnered to develop this repeatable reference architecture of best practices at the edge to transform business and accelerate deployment of Industry 4.0 initiatives. Industry 4.0, or the fourth industrial revolution, is the ongoing automation of traditional manufacturing and industrial practices. By bringing together a world-leading infrastructure and a world-leading IIoT solutions platform to create a scalable and repeatable solution, global manufacturers realize the incredible savings and efficiencies that Industry 4.0 and smart factories provide.
The Dell Validated Design for Manufacturing Edge with PTC addresses the most pressing challenges faced in industrial automation today. These challenges include the need for an extensible platform that runs today's diverse smart manufacturing applications, consolidation of existing servers into a common platform, and the ability to scale out to enable new use cases and future applications.
This design guide highlights a combined Dell Technologies infrastructure and PTC IIoT solutions platform, highlighting design considerations for digitized and modernized industrial operations.
