Pluribus Networks Extends Support for New DELL EMC Open Networking Switches


Pluribus Netvisor ONE Accelerates the Adoption of Disaggregated
Networking by Extending Distributed Fabric Intelligence from the Data
Center to the Network Edge

Pluribus Networks announced the release of Netvisor® ONE 3.1 with
support for additional Dell EMC Open Networking switches, enabling new
interface speeds, greater intelligence and the extension of its unique
software-defined network fabric architecture from the data center to the
network edge. This brings the total number of Dell EMC Open Networking
switches supported by Pluribus Networks to nine.

Building on the previous Netvisor ONE Network Operating System (OS)
integrations with the widely-deployed Dell EMC Z- and S-Series switches,
Pluribus has added support for the Dell EMC S4148F-ON, S4148T-ON,
S4128F-ON, S4128T-ON, and S5048F-ON models. These high-performance Open
Networking switches, designed for enterprise and service provider data
center and network edge deployments, deliver increased capacity and
support for 25 GbE and 100 GbE interfaces to meet the increasing demands
of virtualized and multi-cloud operations.

"Our strategy is providing customers with choice for accelerating
adoption of disaggregated network solutions that support their
next-generation networking requirements," said John Hultman, vice
president for global sales, Dell EMC Networking & Solutions. "The
Pluribus Netvisor ONE OS brings a unique set of differentiated
capabilities to Dell EMC customers with a simple, controllerless SDN
fabric architecture for scalable, distributed, multi-location

Networking disaggregation is changing the way networks are built and
enable organizations to break free from the closed legacy networking
model to take advantage of best-of-breed open technologies and challenge
incumbent vendors. The transformational Open Networking model is
predicated on a combination of a strong hardware foundation with a
robust networking OS to build next-generation networking systems. In
this new architectural model, the network operating system software
matters as it is the critical enabler of rich new services and
capabilities that enable IT transformation.

Netvisor ONE is Pluribus Networks' deployment-proven third-generation
Open Networking OS that delivers best-in-class advanced networking
services to power the next-generation, agile and programmable
software-defined network. Netvisor ONE virtualizes the network and
powers the Adaptive Cloud Fabric™ architecture to build a holistic,
distributed network that provides single-network OS to challenge Arista
and Cisco.

Simple to deploy and interoperable with existing networks to support
brownfield deployments, the Adaptive Cloud Fabric operates without a
controller to deliver a more dynamic, resilient, and elastic network
that adapts to change and streamlines operations to optimize service
delivery, improve efficiency and lower operational costs. Intrinsic
automation, API-driven programmability and deep integrations with VMware
vCenter enable integrated end-to-end management and provisioning from
compute and storage in the data center to the network edge.

"As organizations are transforming their networks to support
next-generation multi-cloud architectures, the operational value and
economic benefits of disaggregated Open Networking strategies have
become increasingly compelling," said Steven Shalita, vice president,
marketing and business development for Pluribus Networks. "As Dell EMC
continues to lead the global adoption of Open Networking, we are proud
that our combined solution enables our joint customers to build
scalable, automated, and distributed networks that improve business
agility, efficiency and operational simplicity, challenging the legacy

The Pluribus Netvisor ONE OS version 3.1 with
support for the Dell EMC Open Networking hardware is now available for
immediate deployment globally through Dell EMC and its channel partners.
