Cumulus Networks is leading the transformation of bringing web-scale networking to enterprise cloud. Its networking switching software, Cumulus Linux, is the only solution that allows your customers to affordably build and efficiently operate their network like the world’s largest datacentre operators — unlocking vertical network stacks – without all the development time or expensive, specialised hardware.
The network is a critical part of the datacentre that has traditionally been a bottleneck for rapid deployment of applications. Cumulus believe in completely transforming the industry by enabling a web-scale IT architectural approach that brings efficiency and flexibility to the network.
Every infrastructure is built around the network and Dell EMC has revamped its networking portfolio to consist of enterprise class, open standard series of Edge 1 and 10GbE, and Core 40 and 100GbE, suitable for all of your customers’ needs and situations. Today’s applications call for new thinking about network architecture. Based on open standards, Dell EMC Networking solutions free your customers from outdated, proprietary approaches. Instead, they take control of their network’s future, and in doing so gain performance and lower costs – all while remaining flexible to adopt new innovations. Dell EMC’s innovative Open Networking approach supports the SDN (software-defined networking) model, which means the data-forwarding function of a switch is decoupled from the network control function.
Designed to deliver high performance in the largest and most demanding IT environments in the world, Dell Networking OS 9 has been tested and hardened to meet stringent requirements for reliability, scalability and serviceability. OS 9 supports the full portfolio of Dell Networking datacentre switch products and enables your customers to build cost-effective, end-to-end networks while reducing operational complexity.
Huawei provides the enterprise network market with the most comprehensive product combinations in the entire industry. These products include Ethernet switches and enterprise routers, as well as Wireless Local Area Networks (WLANs), network security, and network management. Huawei helps enterprises build integrated infrastructure network platforms – for campuses, branches, WAN interconnections, and datacentres – by coordinating services such as network and security, wired and wireless, computing, and storage.
From the information age to the present, the job of networks has evolved from providing reliable connections to offering open, simple, and secure platforms to enable digital transformation. Software-Defined Networking (SDN) is a technology enabling network transformation. It improves network usage, simplifies network O&M, automates deployment of network resources, creates simpler and wider terminal interconnections in the IoT sector, implements free mobility of campus network services, and offers on-demand enterprise interconnections. Huawei’s innovative Software-Defined Datacentre Network Solution is designed to help your customers keep pace with the quick changes of cloud services by building simple, open, and elastic cloud datacentre networks. Huawei’s Cloud Campus strategy includes their Software-Defined Campus Network Solution, which is applicable in a variety of scenarios, including office buildings, government and enterprise campuses, schools, and hospitals.
Better business starts with a better network. Accelerate your customers’ performance with 10/25/40Gb Intel Ethernet Network Adapters. The latest Intel Ethernet converged network adapters offer enterprise connectivity and backward compatibility for a seamless migration. These network adapters, alongside investing in the right combination of Intel upgrades across its SSD, Processor, and OS portfolios, can support up for 67% more VMs per single physical server. This means your customers can consolidate workloads into fewer servers to get the most out of their refresh and datacentres.
Current standards-based high performance fabrics, such as InfiniBand, were not originally designed for HPC, resulting in performance and scaling weaknesses that are currently impeding the path to Exascale computing. Intel® Omni-Path Architecture (OPA) is designed specifically to address these issues and scale cost-effectively from entry level HPC clusters to larger clusters with 10,000 nodes or more. The Intel OPA 100 Series product line is an end-to-end solution of PCIe adapters, silicon, switches, cables, and management software. As the successor to Intel True Scale Fabric, this optimised HPC fabric is built upon a combination of enhanced IP and Intel technology.

Smartoptics designs and enhances existing optical fibre optic networks through CWDM and DWDM based solutions. WDM stands for “Wavelength Division Multiplexing”, Coarse or Dense depending on the amount of data. CWDM allows up to 18 traffic channels, DWDM allows up to 80 with capability of longer distances. It’s a technology that increases bandwidth by sending different data streams at different frequencies over a single dark fibre network. Their solutions focus on providing simple and cost effective enterprise grade solutions, instead of complicated telecom grade solutions that are over the top in terms of price and complexity.
Headquartered in Oslo, Norway, Smartoptics is an international provider with thousands of installations all around the world. Their award-winning approach has helped companies from every industry sector stay ahead of expanding network demands.
