With the explosive growth in digital technologies, the demands on the network have grown exponentially and network operators are challenged every day with the need to deliver massive scale and new services—all at lower costs. Traditional ways of building and operating the network are no longer sufficient, and a new approach is needed to meet the challenges.
As a leading provider of network solutions for telecom and data communications operators, IP Infusion is breaking the bottleneck by accelerating network disaggregation. Our innovative solutions enable operators to build flexible, high-capacity infrastructure that allows them to introduce new services with agility, while reducing total cost of ownership.
We deliver open, standards-based solutions that span from the edge of the network, through the transport layer to multi-cloud environments.
With more than 20 years of expertise in network operating systems, we are a proven leader in delivering validated, carrier-grade solutions, with hundreds of customers and thousands of deployments. Our advanced support services allow you to make the transition with a high degree of confidence and reassurance.
Our network OS can be used on white box platforms across multiple use cases such as Universal CPE, data centers, disaggregated Cell Site Routers and gateways for 5G deployments, provider edge, and optical and packet transport applications. IP Infusion has a full range of network OS options to address these use-cases.
IP Infusion has been delivering enterprise and carrier-grade software solutions with Advanced Network Services, allowing network operators to reduce network costs, increase flexibility, and to deploy new features and services quickly. Customers choose IP Infusion because we provide seamless migration to disaggregated networking without compromising functionality, enabling them to accelerate their time to revenue.
GigaOm, an independent technology and analysis firm, has recognized IP Infusion as a leader in its GigaOm Radar Report for Network Operating Systems, rating IP Infusion as a leader and fast mover due to its completeness of portfolio, innovation and maturity of solution.
