Today, the networking industry consists of a small number of industry players producing single-source software and hardware. Consequently, innovations are stifled and operations are fragile, complex and expensive. Meanwhile, data centers, campuses and carrier environments have highly dynamic computing and storage needs which are driving trends like mobility, cloud services and big data and as a result, new models have started to emerge in order to address the changing needs of business. This white paper outlines Dell’s point of view on software defined networking and open networking and offers an overview of the operational benefits of these emerging paradigms.
