ABOUT THE EDGE CONGRESS 2018
Learn how computing data at the Edge will connect everything.
We believe in a truly connected world. This can only be facilitated by an all-encompassing edge ecosystem. This edge will be the most transformative opportunity for the next decade.
The trend for a more distributed IT architecture will multiply and expand with the convergence of new technologies and developments such as IoT, 5G, AI, autonomous cars and smart cities, connected things, micro-datacenters and Edge facilities. This will enable new ways of analysing and managing the data needed to connect society and drive change.
With strong market drivers, the shift to Edge represents the most profound change that will impact possibly for decades to come. Early deployment particularly evident in North America is expected to achieve significant growth over the next 5 years globally with industry predictions of connections to 25 billion devices, and 50 billion installed or embedded sensors.
Unlike traditional IT electrical distribution systems, today’s extremely high density environments require a systems approach at the micro-electrical engineering level to mitigate issues that could arise. Issues with inrush currents, system impedances and short circuit currents can lead to failures and arc flash risks. Lacking the unique skills to address these issues can lead to downtime, unnecessary costs and loss of revenue.
Energy Station™ PDUs mitigate serious electrical distribution interruptions for mission critical applications, and are equipped with engineered solutions with advanced configurations for specialty applications.
Furthermore, Powersmiths’ lineup of Energy Station™ PDUs are designed and developed with data centre operators to deliver exceptional performance and include innovative solutions like touch-protected breakers, cold tapping, outdoor rated units and more.
