EMC in partnership with Vodafone Ireland has developed a state-of-the-art innovation platform known as INFINITE with an initial investment of €2 million in Ireland for the development of industrial Internet-of-Things(IoT). The IoT Innovation platform, which is spread across three data centres at€“ EMC, Vodafone and datacentre and cloud provider, Cork Internet eXchange (CIX) in Cork, will provide users with the ability to leverage and benefit from the emerging field of IoT whereby everyday processes such as manufacturing or fleet management to everyday objects, like machinery, household appliances and even clothing, contain sensors that are connected to the internet and are generating data for analysis.

INFINITE will encompass all the significant technologies, domains and platforms to support businesses to introduce major advancements in cloud, networks, mobile, wireless, edge gateways, sensors and analytics that are defining IoT globally, said EMC. The platform can be used simultaneously by companies in multiple fields including healthcare, transport, and financial services, to support applications with a need for mobile communication and dynamic configuration, it added.
