Dynabook Europe has announced an update to its dynaEdge AR (Assisted Reality) solution with the launch of the dynaEdge DE200, the next generation of its Windows 10/11 Pro mobile edge computing device.
The edge computing market has accelerated substantially over the past year, driven by factors including COVID-19, and as a result over half (52%) of IT decision-makers regard purchasing decisions around edge computing to be more important now than pre-pandemic. At the same time, most employees (70%) believe that AR will cause either slight or significant disruption to their industry. It is perceived as the most disruptive emerging technology, ahead of AI, the IoT, and cybersecurity (GlobalData). This in turn is driving innovation and adoption around edge infrastructure, with IDC projecting an 800 per cent increase in the number of apps at the edge by 2024.
The new dynaEdge AR solution is designed to provide lightweight, hands-free functionality for mobile working, and improve efficiency, connectivity, and security for the enterprise. It accelerates diagnostic and repair scenarios, information sharing and collaboration, information capture and data processing.
dynaEdge AR was developed for industries with a strong focus on frontline and field-based workers, including manufacturing, inspection, logistics, maintenance, emergency services, healthcare, and education. Now with 4G LTE integration, the solution provides an opportunity to drive digital transformation in even more remote working environments such as first responders, field service, visitor attractions and national parks.
Damian Jaume, President, Dynabook Europe GmbH said, “over the last 20 months, mobile edge computing and smart glasses solutions have become integral to many industries. Indeed, our latest research has found that 63 per cent of IT decision-makers plan to deploy smart glasses in their organisation over the course of the next three years, suggesting that widespread adoption will continue to rise. Work trends are evolving rapidly, and the latest dynaEdge AR solution is evidence that we understand what our customers need to operate in a hybrid working world.”
