RESEARCH PAPER: Dell Technologies Is Open for Networking

By Will Townsend, Patrick Moorhead - July 27, 2021

The deployment and management of enterprise networking can be a daunting task for IT operators. Disaggregation of hardware and software and the adoption of software- defined networking (SDN) tools aim to lower capital and operational expenses. However, these new architectural approaches tend to introduce networking complexities. The need to support both campus and remote workers post-pandemic will also require massive connectivity scale-out and improved operational efficiencies. Open source and cloudification have the potential to bridge the gap, but enterprises demand a networking infrastructure provider that possesses the experience and necessary resources to deliver a complete solution.
