Dell Updates its Switching Portfolio

Dell rolled out a number of big expansions to its networking portfolio.  For the campus, Dell introduced a new unified-campus architecture powered by the new Dell Networking C9010 Network Director switch and companion C1048P Rapid Access Node. In the data center, Dell debuted the Dell Networking S6100-ON, combining multi-rate connectivity, modularity and open networking.

"At Dell, we’re taking a holistic, end-to-end approach to networking from connecting server storage and workloads together in the data center to connecting desktops and mobile devices in the campus," said Tom Burns, vice president and general manager, Dell Networking and Enterprise Infrastructure. "We’re excited about these new products and capabilities and the new levels of simplicity and flexibility to help our customers become future ready."

Some highlights:

  • Dell Networking C9010 Network Director and C1048P Rapid Access Nodes -- Dell's new unified-campus architecture provides a single management view for the entire campus from access to core, enabling a single point of control for quality of service, policy provisioning and software upgrades, as well as for programming software-defined attributes. The new Dell Networking C9010 Network Director is a next-generation multi-rate capable modular switch and is the first platform based on the new Dell campus network architecture. It delivers optimum scalability for up to 4,000 virtual ports managed centrally, a lifetime of flexibility with support for 10 and 40 gigabit Ethernet (GbE) today, and a tool-free upgrade to 100GbE in the future to meet the growing bandwidth requirements of a diverse campus of end-users and end-points. For initial deployments, the C9010 can be deployed as a traditional campus switching platform without the Dell Networking C1048P Rapid Access Node, serving to aggregate legacy switching platforms in wiring closets.

    The new Dell C1048P Rapid Access Node extends the capabilities of the C9010 Network Director by providing enhanced power over Ethernet well as user access and connectivity back to the C9010. The C1048P can be deployed either stand-alone or in a stacked configuration.
  • Dell Networking S6100-ON Multi-Rate Modular In-Rack Switch -- this data center switch combines multi-rate connectivity with chassis-level modularity and open networking. Multiple expansion modules support port speeds ranging from 10 – 100GbE with both QSFP28 and CXP port choices.
