Discover Your Next Software-Defined Network Solution

Challenges for university and college IT organizations have become increasingly complex. Between an explosion in the volume of online instructional course content, an increase in research activities, and ever-growing network bandwidth, CIOs are facing increasing demands for access to important academic and administrative applications.

An important foundation to addressing these growing demands is having a modern high-performance software-defined network (SDN) solution. A SDN can address the ever-expanding number of connected devices, support advanced research projects, and address wide-area networking demands from multiple campus locations.

Still, educational institutions are often encumbered with legacy networks that are difficult to configure, manage and secure. Software-defined networks using virtualization are central to escaping the legacy networking constraints of the past.

Dell Technologies and VMware have co-engineered next generation network fabric solutions designed with campuses in mind. Their Smart Switch solutions with Dell EMC SmartFabric Director greatly simplify network configuration, improve service velocity and elevate network security practices.
