IP Infusion Announces Partnership and Distribution Agreement with Dell


IP Infusion today announced a distribution agreement with Dell which offers OcNOS™, the first, full-featured network operating system for data center and enterprise networking, that will deliver affordable MPLS (Multiprotocol Label Switching) virtualization with Dell Open Networking switches, IP Infusion software and worldwide support. Under this partnership, Dell will resell the OcNOS network operating system running on Dell’s high performance Open Networking switches.

Enterprises and service providers operating modern data centers are demanding open networking infrastructures with higher capacity, less complexity and the opportunity to add new services quickly and affordably. Dell’s reseller agreement with IP Infusion helps fill the current void in the networking industry of a full-featured networking operating system for service providers and enterprises.

For this new approach to traditional MPLS virtualization, Dell worked closely with IP Infusion to help provide enterprise customers with a cost-effective and scalableMPLS-based network virtualization solution that provides secure connectivity and aggregated management. This joint solution will enable enterprise customers to adopt MPLS virtualization capabilities within their data centers and campus environments at a fraction of the cost, power, space and cooling requirements as compared to today’s market offerings.
