Dell weaves more nets

Dell's followed up its open networking strategy with switches and software.

The company has integrated its N-Series layer 2/3 switches with its Aerohive access point HiveManager NG software, letting a single cloudy management system cover wired and wireless environments.

There's also two Open Networking top-of-rack switches, the S4048T-ON 10G copper switch and the S6010-ON 10/40GbE switch, both available now.

The Open Compute Project gets a slab of new software, with Dell putting its OS10 Open Edition into the OCP's SONiC (Software for Open Networking in the Cloud). It says this will help give customers open source components they can use to build “full-functional networking software on Linux”.

F5, Ansible and SilverPeak have signed on as Dell OS10 software partners. ®
