The Dell N Series is a family of energy-efficient, cost-effective 1GbE and 10GbE switches designed for modernising and scaling network infrastructure. Dell Networking N Series switches utilize a comprehensive enterprise-class feature set and deliver simplified management. The Dell N1500 switch series has options for 24 or 48 ports of PoE+ to deliver clean power to network devices such as wireless access points, Voice-over-IP handsets, video conferencing systems, and security cameras. PoE+ is useful in older buildings where installing power to multiple locations can be expensive.

If the switches malfunction or do not respond, then, data may not be transmitted from the data centers at a faster pace which would directly have an impact on the end users. Administrators should therefore monitor the switches in their environment 24*7. Let us now deep-dive into the procedure to monitor the Dell Switch N Series monitoring model in the forthcoming chapters.
