As businesses and organizations continue to be challenged with increasing complexities and data growth, they look for solutions that offer the right balance of performance, energy efficiency and easy-to-manage capabilities. To address these needs, Dell launched its new line of networking switch appliances with the PowerConnect series.

PowerConnect 7000

To supplement the company’s existing server and storage offerings, Dell introduced the new 5500 and 7000 PowerConnect switch. The PowerConnect 7000 family delivers superior performance for midsized business deployments, distributed offices and large server farms. It also delivers the connectivity to support Dell’s PowerEdge servers and Dell’s EqualLogic storage arrays. The PowerConnect 5500 series enables a superb solution to basic, non-managed Gigabit Ethernet switches deployed in small-to-medium offices and remote locations, which require rapid wire-speed deployment with flexible features.

Both families implement innovative technology features to streamline deployment, simplify management and help reduce operating costs with power-saving Energy Efficient Ethernet (IEEE 802.3az) design and Power-Ethernet operation.

Dell also announced the appointment of two channel partners, namely ICS (Integrated Computer Systems) and IMVI (International MicroVillage, Inc.) supporting Dell’s networking solutions business for distribution and systems integration, respectively.
