Dell continues to build up its networking arsenal with the news that it is using its acquisition last year of networking vendor Force10 Networks, to add new hardware and software to its open networking platform.
This includes a 40 Gigabit Ethernet-enabled switch for its PowerEdge M1000e blade system.
Dell also is unveiling enhancements to its networking operating system and new management capabilities that offer greater automation and a single console for all management needs on new and existing Dell networking infrastructures.
The new and enhanced offerings were announced 24 April, and many will be on display at the Interop 2012 show in Las Vegas 7-10 May. Dell also will demonstrate its capabilities in the burgeoning area of software-defined networking (SDN), including interoperability with Big Switch Networks’ Open SDN architecture.
