Dell has announced an enhanced networking portfolio designed specifically to meet the needs of small to medium-sized businesses.
Distributed, global workforces have given rise to increased mobile and cloud computing. This, combined with the rise in data analytics, has caused businesses to experience a data deluge. IT departments of all sizes are looking to create a network infrastructure that is able to manage this new generation of computing and workload processing but are often constrained by limited resources. To provide small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) with a competitive edge and the ability to grow their networks at a flexible and affordable rate, Dell has introduced these innovative networking solutions that combine cost effective, enterprise-level network control with consumer like ease.
“Dell brings decades of experience delivering enterprise-class features in technology solutions specifically designed for small and medium-sized customers,” said Arpit Joshipura, Vice President, Strategy and Product Management, Dell Networking. “Today’s announcement is another example of our commitment to enable customers to break free of outdated networking paradigms.”
The Dell Networking X-Series is a family of smart web-managed 1 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) and 10GbE switches specifically designed for SMBs that offer intuitive, enterprise-class features, as well as multiple flexible configurations. The Dell Networking N1500 family offers fully managed 1GbE switches optimised for smaller networks. To reassure wireless customers and partners, Dell announced extended support for the W-series family of wireless access points and controllers.
