Targo Chooses IP Infusion For Upgraded Backbone Network

Targo Chooses IP Infusion

Canadian Internet Service Provider uses OcNOS to ensure interoperability with deployed Cisco, Mikrotik and Ubiquiti network equipment

SANTA CLARA, Calif., November 13, 2023 – IP Infusion, the market leader in carrier-grade networking software systems, announced today that Montreal-based Internet service provider Targo has implemented IP Infusion OcNOS® software and hardware from UfiSpace and Edgecore Networks to upgrade and service their backbone network. Logistics and support is provided by open networking specialist E.C.I. Networks, also based in Montreal.

Targo is a rapidly growing service provider with roots in providing wireless ISP services. Strong demand spurred its evolution from being a wireless provider to providing fiber services and expansion to residential service. Targo built their fiber network with Gigabit Passive Optical Networking (GPON).

To accommodate increased demand and new services, Targo is using OcNOS for BGP router and edge services with VXLAN as an overlay. OcNOS provides seamless interoperability with their existing Cisco, Mikrotik and Ubiquiti networking equipment and provides a robust platform for any future expansion needs, with E.C.I. Networks guiding the seamless integration and providing continuous support throughout Targo’s network modernization journey. As a valued integrator, E.C.I. Networks assists in the selection, design, sourcing and deployment of open networking solutions, tailoring them to meet Targo’s unique requirements. 

“OcNOS has been a little surprising with its combination of features and cost,” said Michel Blais, Network Architect for Targo. “An open networking strategy has been an effective alternative to our usual vendors in reducing capital expenses, and we’re on track to benefit from a great reduction in operating expenses ongoing.”

“Open networking has fast moved from being a market novelty to a viable and cost-sensitive alternative to major vendors’ offerings,” said Atsushi Ogata, President and CEO of IP Infusion. “IP Infusion continues to offer a feature list on par with other networking vendors without sacrificing performance for immediate ROI.”
