Capitalizing on successful tests & learning from failures.

ADLINK Technology has launched its DXS IoT Digital Experiments as-a-Service offering for testing IoT-based endeavours to determine the viability of possible solutions with none of the upfront costs and risk associated with a full-solution commitment.

According to ADLINK, DXS provides all the resources required to get digital experiments up and running, including pre-validated hardware, client/asset connection, data-movement consolidation to bridge the IT/OT gap, enterprise sharing, endpoint management and field and professional services.

The DXS approach is built on the experience of building military-grade solutions optimized for real-world limitations including security, latency and power. Solutions are designed to take maximum advantage of cloud, data center and edge processing.

“ADLINK DXS IoT digital Experiments as-a-Service allows organisations to think big, start small and work fast when integrating IoT-based functionality within new business models or processes,” says Andy Penfold, director of offering management, ADLINK IoT Solutions and Technology. “Digital experiments combine existing elements in new ways, and the more experiments that are implemented, the more innovations are created. We believe strongly that digital experiments will form the basis of the next generation of business models and processes shaping industry landscapes. Digital experiments, whether successful or unsuccessful, are key to an effective culture of innovation.”

“As successful digital experiments are completed, stakeholder confidence grows, supporting the investment needed for large-scale rollouts,” adds Penfold. “But, unsuccessful experiments can also provide significant value, whether uncovering design issues or revealing where to avoid further investment.”

ADLINK DXS approaches each project individually to determine which areas are likely to be affected by the solution, from ground-level operations to admin/resource allocation. Each digital experiment is defined at the intersection of people, places and affected assets, where most value can be created.

“Our service leverages technologies through all layers of the required hardware, software and network stacks to create viable, scalable and secure IoT solutions,” says Penfold. “These solutions span not only capabilities from ADLINK, but also from partners throughout our ecosystem, and are therefore agnostic in nature.”
