I recently published a blog describing how Dell offers an open path to modernize your network from the data center to the campus environment, while leveraging the investments you’ve already made. Today I am excited to announce new advances in our comprehensive campus portfolio that further extend networking savings, efficiencies, and performance.

Modernize the wireless edge with wired-like speeds.  To provide the performance today’s networks need to meet the demands of the connected, modern workforce, Dell is introducing Dell Networking W-Series Gigabit Wireless Access Points that deliver unprecedented data rates up to 1.3 Gbps for end-to-end wireless solutions that use the 802.11ac standard.  Unlike competitive solutions that require an add-on module, these new access points were purpose-built with you in mind to simplify .ac wireless implementation, so you can enable thousands of users to enjoy desktop-like speeds wirelessly, at just $2/Mb.

Upgrade the wiring closet with enterprise-class access solutions that grow as your needs change.  I’m also pleased to announce the Dell Networking N-Series family of energy-efficient, cost-effective 1GbE and 10GbE switches that enable you to scale your campus network infrastructure as your requirements change.  The N-Series delivers 50% more unit stacking capacity and 44% more 1GbE stacked ports than the competition. And with embedded common tools and practices, you’ll be up and running quickly with 75% faster deployment times and 50% fewer people required.1

Manage expansion with confidence and optimum uptime.  The Dell Networking C-Series are modular, fully redundant 1/10/40 GbE switches that deliver high-performance aggregation and back-end infrastructure to reduce bottlenecks and congestion for dependable operation.  With up to 1.6 times the throughput and density and up to 4 times the performance scalability, you can quickly extend mobile infrastructure operation and readily support modern workloads.2
