Industry 4.0 Launches in Las Vegas
The INZONE program is designed to catalyze innovative services and create a virtuous cycle of investment in an opportunistic location in the Las Vegas markets. INZONE Las Vegas will serve as an economic catalyst for bridging the digital divide and accelerating industry 4.0 transformation. The near premises opportunity provides a cost effective transformational service that is now available to accelerate the Industry 4.0 Journey for the Las Vegas Business and public programs.
Announcing INZONE Las Vegas!
The city of Las Vegas, Nevada and surrounding Clark County will host the first INZONE, encompassing the Las Vegas Strip and nearby industrial areas. The Las Vegas INZONE™ will host applications and services designed to benefit manufacturers, retailers, hospitals, hotels, convention centers, casinos, telecom service providers and other nearby businesses, as well as to local governmental entities and schools.
The first technology stack we deploy in the Vegas INZONE will be targeted to support real-time video analytics over 5G wireless. Video analytics applications span law enforcement, logistics, security, warehousing, loss prevention, smart retail, etc, and is also a good use case for 5G RAN and spectrum optimization. We will use 5G plus video analytics to define KPIs that will drive the first MCSG stack definition
We are building a TAM model for video analytics services in the Vegas metro, and we will use this model to excite our partners and help them justify their participation.
INZONE leverages Vapor IO’s Kinetic Grid architecture, which locates neutral-host infrastructure near high-density industrial and retail zones. Enterprises within an INZONE can leverage Open Grid technologies to implement Industry 4.0 solutions—including private 5G, IoT, video analytics, smart retail, and cloud robotics among others.
Public Private Partnerships
The first INZONE being deployed in Las Vegas, Nevada will be served initially from three sites, spanning both the city of Las Vegas as well as areas in surrounding Clark County, including the Las Vegas strip. As detailed in Tolaga Research’s Total Economic Impact of INZONE to Las Vegas and Surrounding Clark County, the INZONE program is expected to contribute $115.8 Billion in total economic impact over the next n years.
Definition of an INZONE
“It all comes down to delivering infrastructure within microseconds of the target facilities, then enabling that infrastructure with last mile networks combined with the intelligence of software APIs and real-time telemetry,”
said Cole Crawford, founder and CEO of Vapor IO.
“We call this unique combination of technologies INZONE™ because it enables Industry 4.0 application within a physical geography without requiring on-premises data centers.”
Amazon Web Services (AWS)
Will provide AWS Outposts (a service that offers the same AWS infrastructure, AWS services, APIs, and tools to virtually any datacenter, co-location space, or on-premises facility for a truly consistent hybrid experience) as part of the INZONE™ testbed environment in Las Vegas, making it possible to run AWS workloads as if they were on-premises.
Guavus (a Thales company)
Will provide its SQLstream real-time analytics technology to drive 5G telco, Industry 4.0 and other vertical industry use cases — enabling distributed data collection, AI-based analytics deployed at the network edge , and low-code/no-code dashboards for customer ease of use.
Will provide bare metal provisioning and private cloud services atop ITRenew servers, making it easy for enterprise customers to provision and manage servers on a pay-as-you-go basis.
Will provide hyperscale-grade, bare metal rack solutions in INZONE™ environments, delivering breakthrough TCO and sustainability, while enabling enterprises in a near-prem environment to leverage the same best-in-class hardware used by the world’s largest cloud companies.
Will provide edge servers designed specifically for edge environments and use cases. These edge servers offer VMware’s vSphere, vSAN and Tanzu Kubernetes platform in a small, secure and ruggedized form factor.
Will provide edge-based handling of IoT data moving between vehicles, devices and various end systems. Terbine’s IoT Data Exchange Platform will run on servers close to where data is acquired and consumed, supporting advanced applications in augmented reality, autonomous vehicle guidance, city-scale digital twins, localized traffic management, public safety and security.
Will provide last mile wireless for digital divide initiatives such as remote learning as well as for a variety of smart city applications.
Will provide its Telco Cloud Platform in support of 5G connectivity and its Multi-Cloud Services Grid for hypercomposition of edge-native applications spanning the user to core edge continuum.
