Collaboration Enhances Partners’ Ecosystem with Scalable Solutions to Enable Open Networking
SANTA CLARA, Calif., Aug. 30, 2022 – IP Infusion, a leading provider of open network software and solutions for wireline and mobile network operators, announced today its strategic alliance with Fujitsu Network Communications, a leading provider of digital transformation solutions for network operators and service providers. Under the agreement, Fujitsu Network Communications will augment its optical and packet networking portfolio with IP Infusion’s bundle of OcNOS® software and whitebox hardware. This collaboration will allow network owners to further enable openness and scalability across a wide range of use cases throughout their packet networks.
Fujitsu Network Communications’ transport portfolio additions, powered by IP Infusion’s OcNOS software, provide an open, cost-effective and scalable edge transport system to network operators and service providers.
