To support the solution, the environment must include:
- An existing Ethernet infrastructure with which to integrate. Dell EMC Networking S5248F switches support 10/25 GB and 40/100 GB uplinks to the network core switches. Additional components, such as Dell network cables and transceivers, are needed. Ensure that you have all necessary components to facilitate connecting to the existing network prior to beginning deployment.
- Domain Name System (DNS) and Network Time Protocol (NTP) services on the management network. A Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server is recommended but not required.
- Sufficient power and cooling to support all components. To determine accurate power and cooling needs, see the product documentation.
