The OcNOS Flex solution simplifies and accelerates your entire product development lifecycle to protect investments in your installed base, satisfy current requirements, and future-proof your roadmap.
The OcNOS networking software platform may be leveraged across your entire product line to enhance new product introduction and reduce support and carrying costs. Common management interfaces and APIs enable integration of your management portfolio, and end-customer environment.
Another advantage is out-of-the-box support for pre-qualified IP Infusion applications that may be readily ported to your custom hardware (on select Broadcom and Marvell silicon);
- Mobile Networking: Cell Site Routing/TIP DCSG; Packet Optical and Optical Transport
- Carrier Routing: Aggregation Routing, Provider Edge (PE) Routing
- Data Center Switching: Spine Switch, Super Spine Switch, Leaf Switch
OcNOS Flex has been architected to integrate with your custom hardware, and support your user applications and network functions. Extensive support for multi-vendor merchant network silicon, processors, and optics (many qualified out of the box) accelerate time to market and revenues.
IP Infusion’s carrier-grade networking stack offers a broad range of standard protocols, packet timing, routing VPN, etc. that enable seamless migration from legacy services. Refer to the OcNOS Features Matrix for a list of capabilities.
OcNOS Flex provides a robust facility for adding user applications, hosted on both VMs and containers. A robust management plane is also provided that supports a wide range of standard management interfaces and APIs, along with resiliency and high-availability features that are field proven.
The commercial arrangement for OcNOS Flex is designed to significantly reduce Total Cost Of Ownership (TCO), yet achieve simplicity and predictability. The pricing model consists of a fixed upfront Non-Recurring Engineering (NRE) charge, along with pre-paid, per-unit product licensing and support.
OcNOS Flex Success Story: Ceragon Networks Ltd.
Ceragon Networks Ltd. (NASDAQ: CRNT) is the global innovator and leading solutions provider of 5G wireless transport. Ceragon helps operators and other service providers worldwide increase operational efficiency and enhance end customers’ quality of experience with innovative wireless backhaul and fronthaul solutions.
Ceragon and IP Infusion
Ceragon Networks Ltd. has chosen IP Infusion’s OcNOS Flex to launch its IP-50FX, a platform of open disaggregated wireless transport solutions and cell site routing solutions.
An industry’s first, the radio-aware disaggregated cell site router concept is realized by integrating OcNOS with Ceragon’s new TIP-compliant router hardware. A key advantage of this configuration is disaggregation, which allows different hardware and software elements to operate together. Thus, this solution is not only extremely cost-effective but also eliminates vendor lock-in.
“Through this important partnership, we are able to implement the open network concept as a key driver, helping operators to dramatically increase their operational efficiency with our RAON software layer, providing them far higher quality of experience to subscribers, and allowing them to achieve significantly faster time-to-market for new services and technologies. IP Infusion supplies the powerful network operating system to help us deliver new wireless transport routing hardware and software solutions, allowing our customers to easily enter and leverage the 5G era as well as opening up a new addressable market for us,” said Doron Arazi, CEO of Ceragon Networks.
IP Infusion provides Ceragon with a customized open-architecture OcNOS version with unique features that enable Ceragon to build a highly differentiated and flexible solution to address the growing wireless transport and the cell site routing (CSR) markets. Ceragon also takes advantage of IP Infusion’s world-class maintenance and technical support.
“We are excited to partner strategically with Ceragon to deliver cutting-edge innovation in the wireless transport and cell site router markets. With our customized offering of a feature-rich OcNOS, Ceragon can accelerate the introduction of disruptive solutions. The containerized and virtualized architecture of OcNOS, hands-on support, and ongoing development of features enable Ceragon to shorten their integration cycles and time to market,” said Atsushi Ogata, President and CEO of IP Infusion.
