"BT helps multinational organizations deliver great user experience by managing and integrating services globally and at scale," said
"Partnering with BT on its wide-reaching Dynamic Network Services program will help provide customers more choice, security, resilience, service and agility in the roll-out of networks based on the latest software defined networking (SDN) and edge networking technologies," said
Dell EMC Virtual Edge Platform
Built with advanced intelligence for network virtualization and software-defined architecture, the Dell EMC VEP family helps both service providers and enterprises modernize and future-proof WAN operations. The VEP features
The VEP is available in two model series, each with a range of configurations to help customers in both large and small locations:
- VEP4600 series - a higher-performance, modular version that can handle the virtualization of several network functions — ideal for central locations
- VEP1405 series – a compact, low-cost, low power consumption fixed-form factor option ideal for remote locations
For large operators and enterprises with multiple locations, Dell EMC can help smooth procurement, deployment and support through its global supply chain, manufacturing scale, logistics and support services with a single point of contact and accountability.
