Forward-thinking solutions for a changing industry
Innovation and differentiation live at the foundation of telecommunications. Pioneers in telecommunications have built and enabled some of the most revolutionary modern technology in the world, such as digital communications, digital networking, the internet and more. But now it’s harder than ever to bring those innovations to life — especially when carriers and network equipment providers (NEPs) are trying to cut costs, grow business globally and streamline operations to better meet customers’ ever-changing needs.
Only the strongest solutions survive the compelling events and demands that drive competition and allow carriers and NEPs to deliver the best services, anytime, anywhere. For years, telecommunications companies have been diverting resources into building hardware solutions including carrier grade servers to fit their own needs. Now there’s a new solution.
At Dell, we’ve been serving our customers with personal computers, workstations, business systems, networking, data center storage and more for almost 30 years, and we’ve been building affordable, smart original equipment manufacturer (OEM) solutions since 2002. Now Dell’s journey brings us to a deliberate, focused venture into the telecommunications market.
Open standards, open communications.
Dell’s OEM solution for telecommunications blends NEBS-certified reliability, cost-effective components for high volume, and Dell’s established, high-ranking services and support. These preconfigured servers are based on open standards to help maximize compatibility, scalability and expandability for the highest possible level of stability, when and where you need it most. That way, Dell’s NEBS-compliant solutions can bring you lower operational expenses, better profitability and simplified operations, so your technology leaders can focus on what matters: Truly innovating to better serve your customers and the world.
|"The great thing now is that we can focus more resources on developing new products because Dell OEM Solutions offers extensive services and support. Our personnel can concentrate on what they’re best at – building unified communications solutions."|
— Lucas Wensing, Chief Executive Officer of StartReady.

Your Pain Points:
— Driving down costs and increasing efficiencies
— Supply chain complexity
— Supplier relationships
Often carriers and NEPs don’t have time to create new solutions to enable true differentiation in the market — they’re forced to push innovation aside to work on improving service and reliability, developing over-the-top (OTT) services, simplifying operations, and driving down costs and inefficiencies.
Dell has an answer:
Dell’s services — including design, manufacturing and global support — provide you with commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) servers, storage and networking solutions that can meet the stringent requirements of telecommunications environments, along with excellent service, custom design and more.
