Dell EMC Networking solutions are based on an open ecosystem, enabling organizations to choose from industry-standard network applications, network operating systems and network hardware. These Open Networking solutions enable IT managers to build an application-agnostic infrastructure and simplify data center management with standard automation tools, like Ansible and standards-based open platforms.

The Ansible modules and collections for Dell EMC Networking solutions enable IT administrators to configure and maintain the state of network platforms running OS10, OS9 and OS6. Working with Ansible underscores Dell Technologies vision of creating a more efficient and agile infrastructure through network automation.

The Ansible modules and collections for Dell EMC Networking solutions allow organizations to use open-source tools such as Ansible to minimize costly engineering overhead and help reduce the time and effort required to design, provision and manage networks in the following ways:

Dell Networking solutions are designed to manage systems that integrate seamlessly with one another, making it easy for SMBs to manage their network. Dell Networking is very flexible and can support a wide range of services and platforms. It also gives SMBs the freedom to choose from multiple open operating systems from Dell EMC and selected third-party partners.

Dell Networking and Dell PowerConnect Switches are available in a variety of port sizes (and costs), and all deliver high-performance networking through high-density, versatile, feature-rich designs. The total cost of ownership is also relatively low, making it ideal for smaller businesses on a limited budget.

Which Choice Is Right for You?When it comes to upgrading or replacing your networking components, ask yourself these important questions: What do you need your network to do? How important is price? How many total devices are on your network?

Dell empowers countries, communities, customers and people everywhere to use technology to realize their dreams. Customers trust them to deliver technology solutions that help them do and achieve more, whether they are at home, work, school or anywhere in their world.

The data center and cloud networking vendors covered in this market provide hardware and/or software solutions to deliver connectivity primarily within enterprise data centers. This includes data center core/spine switches, access switches (top of rack [ToR], leaf), virtual switching, Ethernet fabrics, network operating systems (NOSs) and network overlays, and the requisite management, automation and orchestration of those components.

Recently, a new office building was completed, and a new office network was required. Based on our experience in using Huawei switches, we preferred Huawei products and solutions. Huawei's solution has proved to be the best fit for us. Huawei recently launched a simplified network architecture solution that simplifies a traditional Layer 3 network to a Layer 2 network. A building required only one central switch. Terminals can access the network through remote units and APs on each floor. The remote unit functions as the extension port of the central switch, which is convenient for plug-and-play.

Dell today announced new enterprise technology to help customers architect new data centers and modernize campus networks, while meeting increasing IT performance and network access demands. The new solutions include the highest-performing Dell EqualLogic storage solutions to date and higher-speed wireless and simplified campus networking switches. The new products announced today help customers architect and build future-ready data centers which address customer expectations for instant access to information no matter if they are in the office or working remotely.

Dell W-Series Gigabit Wireless Access Points deliver unprecedented data rates up to 1.3 Gigabits per second (Gbps) for end-to-end wireless infrastructure solutions utilizing the 802.11ac standard. Unlike other solutions that require an add-on module, these new access points were designed to simplify .ac wireless implementations.

No matter what stage of desktop virtualization you're in or what platform you prefer, our fully customizable, end-to-end cloud client-computing solutions can help you realize a heightened level of security, speed and management across Citrix, Microsoft, VMware or Dell-based platforms.

In a landscape traditionally dominated by Cisco, it is often easy to default to the industry favourite for networking without first considering the alternative solutions. Cisco may well be a networking powerhouse, but fundamentally their technology is equalled by other vendors e.g. Dell EMC. Both simplify their networks, to make them faster and easier to manage with a seamless and reliable user experience; one just happens to be more well-known for it (few companies market themselves as well as Cisco).

Whilst Dell EMC and Cisco follow different strategies for their networking solutions and therefore bring varying benefits and disadvantages, it is this difference in approach for arguably comparable technologies that provides your business with the opportunity to tailor your network to your own particular needs.

Cisco offer a wide range of switching portfolios, as well as software overlays, which fully integrate with each other and provide additional functionality that benefits the overall network. Their specialism is demonstrable as they do this technology so well, with solutions such as Cisco DNA adding the benefit of a single pane of glass.

VMWare, Ruckus, Aerohive and SonicWALL sit in an extensive ecosystem of products and solutions from Dell Technologies. Whilst this can be difficult to unify into a single pane of glass solution, there is arguably a solution for any situation due to the amount of products on offer. A business can pick and choose a solution that is truly tailored to their needs, whilst delivering simplified support contracts as well as minimal points of contact. Whilst this is indeed possible with Cisco too, the sheer range of options available with Dell Technologies make this an important factor in the decision-making process, particularly for businesses who have complex requirements.

It is inevitable that in a discussion comparing Cisco and Dell Technologies, the topic of diminishing budgets will eventually lead to the recognition that on average, Dell come in at a much more aggressive price-point (up to 60% saving) despite their comparable technology, and the plethora of other value-add solutions. For many businesses, a reduction in cost must be weighed-up against the work required to move from an embedded solution which has been in place for years to a new one.

Fundamentally, with technologies that are of a very similar standard this comparison really does hinge on the way Cisco and Dell Technologies are marketing their solutions. Cisco paved the way with pioneering and innovation that became industry standard, whilst Dell have taken that standard and developed a portfolio of products and solutions ripe for the picking.

Whilst Dell Technologies networking division has been established and proven for many years, particularly in conjunction with servers and storage (top of rack), it is only in recent years that they have more publicly demonstrated their capabilities in the campus and datacentre spectrums. Dell are now a formidable alternative to Cisco (and other competing technologies), if not providing enhanced solutions.

Talking of innovation, it would be remiss not to touch on the topic of future technologies and the direction of networking in the coming years. Whilst Cisco may have laid the foundations of networking standards, software defined networking, open networking and big data is arguably taking a lead from Dell Technologies. We will look to provide additional information regarding the benefits of these in future posts.

Customers will be provided with support for full-stack solutions with enterprise capabilities, as well as access to production-tested services which previously required extensive internal investment tech support teams.

As Dell continues to help customers with its open networking portfolio, its SONiC solution provides those organisations that have lacked the resources to adopt open source solutions the ability to take advantage of flexible, open source architectures.
