NEC and Dell EMC Bring Network Virtualization to Enterprise Environments


NEC Corporation of America (NEC), a leading provider and integrator of advanced IT, communications, networking and biometric solutions, and Dell EMC announced the general availability of a software defined local area network (SD-LAN) solution that delivers simplified management, higher performance and better security for enterprise networks.

In recent years, network virtualization has played a key role in simplifying the management of datacenter networks. NEC and Dell are now bringing the same benefits of network virtualization, such as secure isolation between network tenants, ease of network policy administration, and elimination of cumbersome and complex networking protocols to achieve these benefits campus-wide.

"The combined enterprise network virtualization solution from NEC and Dell speaks directly to the kind of operational efficiency benefits IT users can achieve from open networking and the flexibility of leveraging any operating system," said Don Clark, Director, Software Defined Networking, NEC Corporation of America. "NEC has successfully deployed hundreds of software defined local area networks, delivering on the promise of network agility and security for customers globally."

"The SDN era has arrived, bringing greater choice and capability to data center and campus networks alike," said Adnan Bhutta, marketing director, Dell EMC Networking. "The new version of NEC's SDN Controller with support for Dell EMC networking platforms greatly enhances the functionality of SDN-based enterprise branch networks with features to simplify management and lower operational expenditures."

The NEC ProgrammableFlow 6800 v7.2 Controller provides network automation and virtualization managed through an easy-to-use browser based interface. PF6800 simplifies day to day network management with drag-and-drop network configuration and high-availability with network visibility. When deployed with Dell's S-Series switches, which offer compatibility with open architectures and operating systems, the result is a powerful, flexible and centrally configurable enterprise network.
