Dell EMC Networking N1108P-ON review
#DellEMC is on a mission to bring #opennetworking (ON) to all walks of life and its #N1108P-ON switch delivers it to campus and SMB networks. The concept behind ON is to do away with vendor lock-in by giving businesses the choice of which OS and apps they want to run on their switches. Switches with proprietary firmware leave businesses at the mercy of vendors, as they’ll release upgrades and new features whenever the mood takes them. @DellEMC removes this reliance; its rapidly-growing family of ON-ready switches support a wide range of 3rd-party @Linux OSes. The N1100 series of Layer 2 switches comprises six members, all supporting ON in hardware and offering a choice of Gigabit port densities. They currently come preloaded with Dell EMC’s DNOS v6 firmware but are ready to run other Linux-based OSes as they become available.
