NEC, Dell EMC bring network virtualization to enterprise environments

NEC Corporation of America (NEC), a leading provider of communications solutions, and Dell EMC have 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, the companies said.

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 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.
