Dell EMC committed to networking, shares product and partnership plans
November 20, 2018 / Sue Marek
Dell EMC has one of the broadest networking portfolios in the industry. What’s unique about Dell EMC’s approach is that it's a mix of its own technology, as well as network partners. Also, it offers traditional hardware products and software-only products and supports white-box implementation. As an industry watcher, I’ve always been confused by the strategy of Dell EMC Networking. I know I’m not alone in this, as other network professionals I’ve talked to have echoed this sentiment. Recently, I had an opportunity to talk with Tom Burns, senior vice president and general manager of Dell EMC Networking and Solutions, about the company's networking portfolio and asked if he could clarify what is included in it. he majority of Dell EMC's revenue come from compute infrastructures such as servers and storage. Can you tell me if Dell is committed to networking? If so, why is it important to Dell?
