Communications Service Providers (CSPs) must adapt to a rapidly changing digital world. And many seek an architectural change away from proprietary and towards open systems to do so. Dell EMC has been leading the Open Networking charge, enabling this strategic shift by providing a path to greater service agility combined with break-through economics.ACG Research published a report today validating a new breed of infrastructure rollouts and Network Function Virtualization (NFV) modernization projects.The study findingsThe findings overwhelmingly demonstrate the value of open, disaggregated and best-of-breed solutions compared to tightly integrated single-vendor systems. The study showcases the Dell EMC product portfolio as deployed in a production environment by a large Tier 1 CSP. Specifically, the ACG report highlights:Up to 3X faster for service agility, enabled at 65% less costUp to 43 percent and 53 percent lower OPEX and CAPEX respectivelyUp to 47 percent lower overall TCOWe view these figures as clear proof of the dramatic benefits of Open Networking, and should provide you with the confidence knowing that service innovation and agility plus profitability can be achieved as you invest to modernize your infrastructure.The Dell EMC portfolio in actionThis report is also an opportunity for us to highlight that the Dell EMC portfolio showcased; specifically the S6000-series and S4000-series Open Networking switches equipped with Big Switch Networks Big Cloud Fabric TM software; the PowerEdge R630, and the PowerVault MD3460; have met some of the most stringent Telco requirements for robustness, uncompromised performance; including, for example, NEBS Level 3 certification, combined with some of the most stringent security standards compliance for mission-critical verticals/applicationsSummary and next stepsThis study independently validates our strategy of delivering openness, service agility and break-through economics through infrastructure modernization. At Dell EMC, we offer a continuum of deployment options with various degrees of integration, from “do-it-yourself” best-in class compute, storage and networking platforms, to fully-validated end-to-end solutions that can unlock new revenue streams.I am confident that we can greatly enhance your ability to drive revenue, innovate faster and transform the economics of your infrastructure; while better preparing you for a wave of new applications, revenue and connectivity models.Please visit our 2017 Mobile World Congress (MWC) site for more on related solutions and additional presentations on ACG Research’s findings.
2020 accelerated longstanding trends and adoption of the technologies that will shape the next decade. What was once a vision for 2030, will now become a reality in 2025. We’ll see wide-scale connectivity with 5G, data-driven insights, automation and embedded intelligence. As a result, the edge is becoming a center of gravity for digital transformation – paving the way for smart factories, cities, hospitals and schools.This digital future requires agile IT, supported by hybrid cloud operating models that enable data visibility and management everywhere data exists. And as organizations accelerate their digital transformation agenda, they’re realizing just how complicated their IT strategy is. Multiple clouds, SLAs, operating models – legacy systems competing to keep up with new apps and services – all of it draining financial capital.Like I said, complicated. So, we’re going to make it simple with Project APEX.Project APEX Project APEX is our strategy for delivering a radically simplified as-a-Service and cloud experience to our customers and partners. This spans PCs and IT infrastructure and it’s all from one trusted partner—unmatched in the industry.“Project APEX builds upon our long history of offering on-demand technology to give customers the freedom to scale resources so they can quickly react to changes in the business environment.ShareProject APEX builds upon our long history of offering on-demand technology to give customers the freedom to scale resources so they can quickly react to changes in the business environment. They can focus less on IT and more on their business needs.

Project APEX is as-a-Service as it should be:A simple cloud experience – turnkey, fully-managed through the Dell Technologies Cloud Console.A consistent experience across private, public and edge cloud operating models – with consistent management and operations.More choice – you choose how you pay and consume: pay as you go, pay as you use or subscription; and you choose what you consume with elastic capacity and performance that can be scaled up or down.as-a-Service unravels the complexity of digital transformation. In fact, IDC is predicting that by 2024, over 75% of infrastructure at the edge locations will be consumed as-a-Service, as will more than half of data center infrastructure.¹ That timing lines up nicely with the digital future I mentioned earlier.First available in the first half of next year is Storage-as-a-Service, with infrastructure resources from our industry-leading Power portfolio. Overtime, we’ll expand it across servers, networking, hyperconverged infrastructure, PCs and broader solutions.Project APEX is the future of how we’ll deliver our technology and services. It brings together our as-a-Service and cloud strategy, offerings and go-to-market under a single effort. Work is underway across every team in our organization. This is big – it’s bold – and it’s our way of proving we’ll stop at nothing to ensure our customers can run full speed ahead into the next Data Decade.¹ prediction 7” from IDC’s Datacenter FutureScape from October 2019Statements in this material that relate to future results and events are forward-looking statements and are based on Dell Technologies’ current expectations.

KYIV, Ukraine (AP) — Hungary’s top diplomat has visited Ukraine to try and defuse a rift over the rights of Ukraine’s Hungarian minority, which has clouded bilateral relations for years. Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto suggested Wednesday that the two countries set up a working group to solve a dispute over Ukraine’s education law. The measure approved in 2017 effectively eliminated the use of Hungarian and other minority languages in schools after the 4th grade. Hungary saw the law as discriminatory against the ethnic Hungarian community of 120,000 in western Ukraine. Tensions also have erupted over the legality of the community members acquiring Hungarian, as well as Ukrainian, citizenship.
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The city of Minneapolis has settled the first lawsuit by a demonstrator injured by a police projectile in violent protests that followed the death of George Floyd. Twenty-two-year-old Graciela Cisneros will receive a payment of $57,900 for injuries to her face when a police officer fired a non-lethal round at her May 29 as she walked home from a demonstration. Cisneros’ cheekbone was broken and her injury required stitches. She was not arrested. Major civil unrest followed the May 25 death of Floyd, a Black man, at the hands of Minneapolis police. Four officers have been charged in his death, including Derek Chauvin, who is white and who knelt on his neck while he was handcuffed in the street.
