The workforce grows more mobile by the dayThe transition to “working on the go” is unmistakable.Anytime, Anywhere, Any DeviceFlexibility is the key to success for modern workers and the IT departments that support themAgile WorkforceWorkers are migrating en masse to leading edge mobile platforms outside the boundaries of the traditional workplace and workdayData ExplosionThe wholesale transition to multimedia is testing the limits of the networks in place todayBetter ProductivityEnabling employees to use a single platform of their own choosing is a win-win.
Anytime/Anywhere Brings Real Concerns There are many considerations and decisions in the process of creating a mobile computing environment.The diverse needs of end users, LOB owners and IT Decision Makers must be reconciled with corporate legal, audit and security requirements.End users want to be assured their device will connect properly to the network and they will receive the bandwidth they need. IT departments want to be assured the network they manage won’t be swamped by users taking advantage of their newfound capabilities. They will also want assurance they maintain and prove compliance, for example, HIPAA, PCI, Sarbanes-Oxley, in support of LOB owners.LOB owners want assurance network resources are utilized appropriately with controls around access. They will also want to know that they can implement a mobility solution without a complete overhaul of their IT infrastructureAll three constituencies want to be assured that all communications and data are kept private.There are other concerns, such as mobile device management, that are being covered in the session “Bring Your Own Device: Don’t Be Afraid”

Network Consulting Services: Networks provide the simple but critical ability to share information, yet very few organizations are able to harness the full potential of their network infrastructure. Dell IT consultants factor the impact of applications as well as technologies such as storage virtualization, mobility/wireless and security on underlying infrastructure to help maximize network potential. Features• Holistic approach to design that aligns key elements of the data center infrastructure directly to business drivers. • Network planning, design, optimization, performance tuning and implementation services • Reduce cabling complexity — more bandwidth with fewer cables. • Reduce power and cooling expenses — fewer cables, switches, NICs, product lifecycle, and management points.Network Deployment Services: Network Implementation-A data center deployment done right includes proper implementation of switches and routers, not just servers and storage devices. This can ensure that your customer’s network is not overwhelmed with problems such as suboptimal traffic flow, poor database-response time, improper application-level prioritization, and inner switch and storage area network (SAN) congestion.That’s why we offer expert implementation services for switches and routers. Our network specialists are up to speed on the very latest best practices and networking technologies so that your customer can rely on them to get systems implemented quickly — and to optimize those systems for maximum return on data center investments. Features• End to end customized solutions• Low latency• Multivendor integrationNetwork Managed Services: Managed Network Services provide the proactive monitoring and management of networking devices and forms a critical component of Dell’s industry standard, best practices services. Network outages or performance problems can cause significant economic impacts to our clients; our Managed Network Services enable customers to realize reliable worldwide network operations.

Chip Ganassi Racing You need a very robust network for the challenging environment presented by race tracks. When the Ganassi NASCAR team arrives at a racing event, it joins many other teams, all using wireless communications. If signals get dropped, the team loses valuable information.the PowerConnect W-Series is designed to prioritize bandwidth based on demands in a dynamic network, enabling potentially thousands of reliable wireless access points to deliver anywhere, anytime access to informationThe PowerConnect W-Series, enabled Team Ganessi to eliminate client disruptions even in this difficult of an environment. Now, engineers and drivers can get network access anywhere within the track footprint with confidence.
Texas A&M: Users get faster, more reliable Wi-Fi service in more areas on campus Large coverage areas are a challenge to implement cost-effectively.TAMIU is delivering high availability and consistent performance in a larger coverage area, using two redundant Dell PowerConnect W-6000M3 controllers, each in a separate Dell PowerConnect W-6000 chassis. The controllers manage 285 Dell PowerConnect W-AP135 access points in classrooms and 19 Dell PowerConnect W-AP175 access points across outside areas, including sports fields. Guests access Wi-Fi in two minutes, rather than waiting up to four hours via the PowerConnect W-Series ClearPass GuestConnect 100 appliance.TAMU no longer has to update the Active Directory manually by using the Dell ClearPass Guest Connect solution. Accelerating guest access is critical because Wi-Fi is often one of the first IT tools potential students and their parents experience when visiting the campus. Dell Access solutions ensure this is not a problem.
