IOTA and Dell Secure Future of IoT with New Patent

• Dell Technologies recently published a patent using IOTA Tangle technology for its Data Confidence Fabric View Models.
• The new patent will allow interaction with a wide range of ledgers, and ledger types that can natively support event streaming, such as IOTA Streams.
• Dell and IOTA have previously partnered on multiple initiatives ranging from measuring carbon footprint to transforming urban mobility.

Dell and IOTA Partnership

Dell Technologies and the IOTA Foundation have come together to work on various initiatives related to smart cities, reducing carbon footprints and more. These two tech giants are now taking their partnership even further with the recent introduction of a new patent that proposes the use of IOTA’s Tangle technology for its Data Confidence Fabric View Models.

Data Confidence Fabric View Model

The patent explains the construction of a view model facilitated through abstraction and providing a stream-like interface. This approach will allow interaction with a wide range of ledgers, and ledger types that can natively support event streaming such as IOTA Streams or smart contracts which can be wrapped by a library to mimic the streaming behavior. With this new technology, data at nodes in the confidence fabric will be annotated along with data confidence information being received at the ledger stream when represented in data structure associated with the ledger along with view node which corresponds to it.

Previous Projects

This is not the first time Dell is talking about leveraging upon power of IOTA ecosystem; both these players have worked on many projects prior to this one from measuring carbon footprint to transforming urban mobility etcetera. Organizations facing challenges in measuring their carbon footprint were aided by Dell Technologies, ZEDEDA, IOTA Foundation and ClimateCHECK who collaborated together making use of Project Alvarium’s Data Confidence Fabric (DCF) framework & Project EVE’s capabilities for cloud computing solutions in remote areas.

Sustainable Energy Use Cases

IOTA & Dell Technologies also combined forces to bring forth sustainable energy use cases in digital cities of future. Several organizations are adopting this technology solution because it provides them an efficient way to measure their impact on environment while providing resources that could potentially reduce emissions & other associated costs arising due to energy consumption worldwide.

Conclusion

The recent development between Dell & IOTA is expected to revolutionize how we think about IoT applications & how they might interact within our environment as well as how we store/access data related thereto. The new patent suggests that using Tangle technology could provide us cost effective & secure methods for capturing data points from various sources & then process them according to user preferences which could lead us into more efficient decision making processes across numerous industries thereby ultimately leading us into smarter cities powered by sustainable energy sources.
