IP Infusion is the de facto standard for software-defined networking. For more than a decade, tier one and two network equipment manufacturers (NEMs) have relied on IP Infusion's ZebOS® network software platform and global professional services to bring products to market faster, improve ROI, and to differentiate them from competitors. Products built on IP Infusion technology are deployed in networks with five-nine’s reliability across five continents, transport billions of mobile messages, and provide the foundation for today’s public, private, and hybrid clouds. IP Infusion is headquartered in Sunnyvale, Calif., and is a wholly owned and independently operated subsidiary of ACCESS CO., LTD.
IP Infusion was founded in 1999 by Kunihiro Ishiguro and Yoshinari Yoshikawa as a commercial-grade, hardware-independent network software for IPv4 and IPv6. The vision for IP Infusion comes from Mr. Ishiguro’s background as the co-founder and developer of open source Zebra and his experience running the first IPv6 network in Tokyo in 1995. IP Infusion was acquired by ACCESS in 2006, and since then has grown to have support and development operations on three continents, serving more than 250 customers across the fast-growing mobile backhaul, Carrier Ethernet, and Cloud markets with its robust, scalable, platform-independent ZebOS Network Platform software.
As the pace of innovation in the connected world increases, network equipment manufacturers must innovate rapidly to accommodate billions of new mobile users, the tsunami of Big Data, and the explosive growth in Cloud services. The future of networking is software, and IP Infusion’s software-defined networking (SDN) architecture, with its ability to adapt quickly to new situations and higher workloads, is the ideal approach to meet these scalability issues, streamline development, reduce costs, and accelerate time-to-market.
IP Infusion is at the forefront of the SDN revolution. Our ZebOS routing and switching software has become a core platform for mobile backhaul, carrier transport, and data center networks. The ZebOS Network Platform features scalable and modular architecture that provides the industry’s broadest suite of communications protocols, enabling you to deliver high-value-per- bit, low-cost-per-bit networking solutions. We also provide Advanced Hardware Integration Software (AHIS) to enable you to isolate hardware development from software development and allow rapid portability of new networking services across a wide-range of merchant silicon. The ZebOS portfolio includes:
- Platform for Mobile Backhaul: a complete control plane solution for building next generation Mobile Backhaul equipment.
- Platform for Carrier Ethernet: comprehensive control plane software for building high-performing, high availability Carrier Ethernet equipment.
- Platform for Cloud: advanced control plane solution to build equipment for public, private, and hybrid clouds.
To help network equipment manufacturers accelerate equipment delivery, IP Infusion offers professional services and training, from architecture design to field trials and deployment. IP Infusion professional services can help you design, develop, test, and deploy your new network equipment.
