IP Infusion Announces Partnership Agreement with Infinera

SANTA CLARA, Calif., February 21, 2019IP Infusion, a leading provider of intelligent network software for telecom and data communications services, today announced a partnership agreement with Infinera, a provider of Intelligent Transport Networks. As part of the agreement, Infinera will use IP Infusion’s OcNOS™ networking operating system to enhance its IP-based white box offerings targeting a broad range of transport applications, including packet-optimized Data Center Interconnect (DCI).

“In today’s fast paced and dynamic communications environment, open ecosystem partnerships play an important role in complementing our disaggregated and software-driven networking capabilities,” said Mikko Hannula, Vice President, Product Management, Infinera. “Extending a long-standing technology collaboration and leveraging IP Infusion’s OcNOS CP as part of our 8600 Smart Router and Converged NOS software, OcNOS will enable us to bring value-add capabilities for additional applications such as packet DCI and edge gateways.”

New initiatives such as the Telecom Infra Project (TIP) Distributed Cell Site Gateway and ONF’s CORD reference designs are looking to disaggregated open infrastructures that offer choice, innovation and cost efficiencies. IP Infusion supports such gateways on open white box switches that leverage commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) silicon. OcNOS for service providers complements Infinera’s broader solutions for telco and network service providers in building next-generation network infrastructure that will enable not just phones and tablets to connect to the mobile 5G network, but new emerging IoT technologies for utilities, autonomous cars, augmented reality, smart cities and factories.

“We are excited to partner with Infinera, a company with a distinguished track record of innovation in packet optical networking and a leader in open and disaggregated solutions for carriers, ICPs, and data center operators worldwide,” said Atsushi Ogata, President and CEO of IP Infusion. “Combined with Infinera’s global reach in support and services, our OcNOS solution provides the tools to ensure seamless transition from traditional to open networks with investment protection, while enabling our customers to rapidly deploy new networking features optimized for agile, high-performance interconnect applications.”
