IP Infusion’s strong disaggregation experience and extensive industry ecosystem

gives CSPs a successful path to open networking


SANTA CLARA, Calif., August 25, 2021 IP Infusion, a leading provider of network disaggregation solutions for telecom and data communications operators, today announced that Analysys Mason, a global leader in TMT management consulting, has recognized IP Infusion as the leading communications service provider (CSP) network operating system (NOS) vendor, with strong hardware abstraction capabilities and open-source credentials.

In its “CSP IP network disaggregation: understanding the vendor landscape” report, Analysys Mason analyzed selected hardware and software vendors that play a vital role in the telecom network disaggregation value chain. It outlines the vendors’ relative strengths and weaknesses, based on interviews with key stakeholders in the CSP network disaggregation landscape. The report assessed the network disaggregation vendors on their use case support, cloud-based platform architecture, CSP customer traction, and ecosystem and industry standards.

According to the report, network disaggregation has the potential to transform the IP networking value chain, and is reshaping the CSP IP routing market, resulting in a new, diverse ecosystem of vendors and is redefining the relationship between CSPs and incumbent vendors. The report helps CSPs evaluate which domains they should target with disaggregation and which vendors are best-positioned to help with their deployments.

“IP Infusion is the market leader in terms of disaggregation capabilities, experience, open-source credentials and the number of CSP customers that are deploying their solutions,” said Gorkem Yigit, Principal Analyst at Analysys Mason. “IP Infusion has a broad range of use case deployments in CSPs of all sizes. It has a rich heritage of open-source routing, broad hardware and silicon support, carrier-grade products and production deployments.”

“Our strong traction with CSP customers is a result of our more than 20 years of experience in providing carrier-grade open networking software solutions including our OcNOS®, DANOS-Vyatta edition and the commercial SONiC distribution,” said Atsushi Ogata, President and CEO of IP Infusion. “We’ve built an extensive industry ecosystem thanks to our participation in Telecom Infra Project (TIP) initiatives, several hardware vendor and system integrator relationships, and the launch of our PartnerInfusion reseller program.”
