FREDERICTON (NB, CANADA) – Kognitiv Spark is partnering with Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) to deliver their Mixed Reality remote worker support tool, RemoteSpark using HPE Edgeline Converged Edge Systems.
RemoteSpark operating on-premise on HPE’s newly released HPE Edgeline EL8000 Converged Edge System will be demoed live at the HPE booth at Microsoft Ignite in Orlando, Florida on Nov. 4 to 8.
The ruggedized HPE Edgeline Converged Edge Systems allow enterprise organizations to run the RemoteSpark holographic remote worker support platform on their own private networks. Enterprise organizations now have the choice to operate this Mixed Reality system in the public cloud or on their own networks, allowing for more flexibility when optimizing remote support processes while taking into account an organization’s data governance policies.
“Our client’s and prospect’s data can now live in the location defined by their policies without compromising processing speed, network and data bandwidth, or how the product functions,” said Ryan Groom, CTO and Co-Founder of Kognitiv Spark. “This gives them the flexibility to operate their remote support solutions in the cloud or own their own networks leveraging HPE Edgeline Converged Edge Systems. We’re looking forward to the future of our partnership as we move toward larger project deployments.”
RemoteSpark, designed to help remote workers complete complex maintenance and repair tasks, runs on the Microsoft HoloLens 1 & 2, Surface Hub 2 and Windows 10 PCs with the backend on the Azure Cloud platform, Azure Stack HCI, and HPE Edgeline Converged Edge Systems.
On-premise and edge computing solutions are often sought by organizations operating in data-sensitive industries like aerospace manufacturing, energy, telecommunications, defense and others which have data governance policies requiring data to be processed and stored on their own privately controlled networks.
These policies have been a barrier to the adoption of Mixed Reality technologies in a number of enterprise organizations due to cloud-exclusive requirements of existing solutions. RemoteSpark housed on HPE Edgeline Converged Edge Systems gives organizations the option to deploy remote worker support where they need it while at the same time ensuring ultra-low latency, reducing network costs, and avoiding issues with network connectivity.
“Partners like Kognitiv Spark and their innovative solutions like RemoteSpark are exactly why HPE created a new product category called HPE Edgeline Converged Edge Systems. Having purpose-built, edge optimized solutions that can run standard platforms like Azure Stack and Azure Stack HCI makes it much easier for our partners to offer their solutions unmodified at the edge”, said Tripp Partain, CTO of HPE Converged Servers, Edge, and IoT Systems.
The HPE Edgeline combined with RemoteSpark’s secure, low-bandwidth, Mixed Reality communications delivers a new dimension of industrial productivity and fulfills on the promise of industrial Mixed Reality or organizations of all sizes.
Kognitiv Spark is a proven leader in secure and reliable applications of Mixed Reality software for industrial enterprises. Its flagship solution, RemoteSpark, connects remote workers to subject matter experts to facilitate complex troubleshooting and task support, reducing equipment downtime and cutting costly travel. Using the Microsoft HoloLens, RemoteSpark allows for shared a voice and video connection between expert and remote users, animated holograms, task-relevant content delivery, field-of-view annotations and IoT data integrations. RemoteSpark’s backend is run on the Microsoft Azure platform.
