OCP Summit Week in San Jose: IP Infusion OcNOS Supports a Wide Spectrum of Broadcom Silicon

This week is OCP Summit in San Jose, CA, which makes us think about why platform choice is so important in disaggregated networking.

Your legacy technology is like an anchor. It’s hard to move very fast or get very far without it weighing you down. If you cut the line without a replacement, though, you might lose some of your vital functions. During the current supply chain situation, it is important to have options, and that is one of the main values of disaggregated networking.

Separating networking equipment into functional components allows operators to deploy each component individually. Open networking gives you your choice of hardware and much more flexibility compared to a traditional ecosystem from a single vendor. When a business can diversify the supply chain and avoid vendor lock-in, keeping costs low is much easier.

The Only NOS Supporting a Wide Spectrum of Broadcom Chipsets

IP Infusion’s OcNOS® is the only network operating system that supports a wide spectrum of Broadcom chipsets.

benefits of network disaggregation are within reach

IP Infusion-enabled network elements work across access, aggregation, transport, and data center. Components with various data rates keep the entire network connected without being so codependent. High interchangeability between components allows for faster pivots and greater flexibility. From mobile access to the public cloud, open networking allows for incremental progress instead of the “rip and replace” approach.
