Lenovo Data Center Group accelerates Telecom infrastructure, IoT focus

Lenovo (HKSE:992) has announced an expansion plan to deliver customer-centric, disruptive software-defined solutions to support telecom and IoT infrastructure, the company said.

Building on the momentum of the highest revenue quarter in two years, Lenovo Data Center Group (DCG) continues to accelerate its transformation journey to develop customer-centric innovation and disrupt the status quo of expensive legacy solutions.

Lenovo has seen significant progress as it shifted its data center focus to meet the needs of hyperscale customers, high performance computing (HPC) customers and enterprise customers by accelerating their cloud and artificial intelligence initiatives with the latest technologies — resulting in new levels of operational simplicity. The next phase of the transformation is focused on the telecom infrastructure and global IoT requirements.

The expanded Lenovo telecom organization will focus on creating joint innovation platforms to deliver customer-centric solutions, building on Lenovo´s unparalleled expertise in reliable standards-based hardware. As 5G deployment plans further solidify across the globe, Lenovo will build and partner on NFV hardware and software solutions based on The Open Compute Project and other standards.

In the newly created IoT division, Lenovo will help customers turn their traditional end-points into smart and connected devices, transforming them into analytical engines to further drive productivity and efficiency. Lenovo will focus on embedding server-class equipment in IoT solutions to enhance connectivity and build a set of edge platforms that can analyze massive amounts of data for real time decision making — all while tightly aligning with system integrators and other Lenovo partners to bring full vertical solutions to market.
