Dell on Tuesday announced new networking solutions for campus and data centers.
The launch of new cloud-managed wired and wireless solutions powered by Dell and Aerohive, Operating System 10 milestones and in-rack platforms for the data center is part of Dell strategy to strengthen its presence in enterprise business.
Tom Burns, vice president and general manager, Dell Networking and Enterprise Infrastructure, said: “These new Dell Networking solutions help our customers navigate changes with future-ready architectures, open technology and hyper-scale inspired efficiency.”
Dell Networking has tied up with Aerohive to deliver new cloud-managed solution that integrates and manages wired and wireless infrastructure.
David Flynn, CEO, Aerohive Networks, said: “HiveManager NG sets the standard for building and managing networks.”
The co-branded solution incorporates Dell N-Series switches and Aerohive access points into Aerohive’s HiveManager NG, a cloud-based management solution, to simplify end-user access to the public or private cloud.
HiveManager NG allows for in-depth views of Dell and Aerohive networking devices including applications, users, policy management and switch port status. Dell has also expanded its ProSupport to provide users with a single point of contact for unified network support.
Movement Mortgage, which has more than 300 branches across the United States, is one of the Dell customers.
Will Simons, IT director, Movement Mortgage, said: “To have a unified wireless platform across all operations and branch offices, and have it just work has undeniably advanced the efficiency and productivity for our employees, as well as streamlined operations for our IT staff.”
Dell also announced new in-rack platforms — the S4048T-ON and S6010-ON — optimized to accelerate 10G deployments. There will be a significant migration to 10G in the next four years as enterprise customers begin to retire 1G speeds in the data center.
“10 GE, specifically 10G Base-T, is going to ramp significantly in the enterprise as customers upgrade servers to 10 GE but also look for investment protection for their existing 1 GE infrastructure. 10G Base-T shipment will nearly quadruple by 2017 driving much of the 10 GE growth over the next two years,” Alan Weckel, Ethernet Switch Analyst at Dell’Oro Group.
Dell Networking S4048T is purpose-built 10G Base-T switch for copper-based server and storage connectivity to offer customers investment protection. The switch supports high-capacity port configurations in a compact, 1RU form factor.
Dell Networking S6010-ON is designed for demanding data center environments to provide optimum density and price point. Dell S6010-ON delivers line-rate performance with a non-blocking switching fabric, improved packet buffering and reduced oversubscription.
