Today’s applications call for new thinking about network architecture. Based on open standards, Dell Networking solutions free you from outdated, proprietary approaches. Instead, you take control of your network’s future, and in doing so gain performance and lower costs — all while remaining flexible to adopt new innovations.
For your data center, this means the addition of powerful capabilities to virtualize and converge infrastructure and services with flexible platforms, several supported paths to software-defined networking (SDN), as well as the freedom to choose from open operating systems. We can do for your network what we did with open-standards servers — break vendor lock-in and allow you to innovate on your schedule, with world class support along the way.
Check out this white paper to learn how Dell's strategy for open networking can dramatically transform your business.
Open, agile and flexible switching solutions
Start simple and scale as you grow with open, high-density switches. Deploy at the bandwidth you need now — 1, 10, 25, 40, 50 or 100GbE — and easily reconfigure as workload demands change. Your choice of network OS and software means even more flexibility. Our expanded lineup of switches and partnerships makes it easy to bring open networking to your data center.
Lay the foundation for a future-ready network
A modern network evolves with your organization. Dell helps you lay the foundation for an open-networking environment with software-defined solutions that utilize open source, standards-based tools and applications.

* The Future of Data Center Network Switches Looks ‘Brite’ - Gartner Report, 1 December 2014. According to Gartner, “In providing a solution that resides in between traditional and white-box switching, brite-box switching will appeal to a broader and more mainstream audience via reducing capex by 25% to 65% in comparison with a traditional switch; current and anticipated pricing is in the range of $150 to $300 per 10 Gbps ToR port, including software.”
