IP Infusion announces OcNOS™, the first, full-featured network operating system for data center and enterprise networking, including advanced capabilities such as extensive protocol support for MPLS (Multiprotocol Label Switching), which will help to accelerate adoption of the Open Compute Project in data networks. OcNOS brings the power of the Open Compute Project, an open hardware movement and foundation, to data networking to reduce operational complexity.
OcNOS provides the crucial enterprise and carrier grade network operating system that fills the void for a standalone networking system that fast, easy and affordable. Customers can take advantage of the price/performance of the “bare- metal” hardware as well as the agility and automation of the new generation of “software-defined” enterprise and data center software and the power of native Linux-based toolsets to create flexible network architectures.
With the flexibility, extensive feature set, high degree of scalability and modularity that OcNOS offers, network carriers will be able to more easily implement large-scale IT deployments based on the Open Compute Project, which curbs CapEx and OpEx costs. OcNOS brings support for common software for multiple deployments and hardware; extensive protocol feature set; interoperation and ease of use; modular software design; support for disruptive networking technologies; and redundancy.

OcNOS sets a new approach to networking solutions
With decreasing hardware costs and new age solutions on the verge of revolutionizing the networking industry, the primary challenge still is the adoption of these disruptive technologies.
Few components are holding back broad adoption including investment protection, adaptability, as well as a roadmap to technology transition. This applies equally to captive networking solutions as well as to public networks run by service providers on various scales. Only a networking solution with components which can fit into legacy systems and networks with sufficient future proof technologies and reduced costs, can fit the bill.
IP Infusion’s new OcNOS network operating system, which has been built using Zebra OS, carries forward its robust technologies which has matured over the years. It provides industry standard configuration mechanisms and interops with all standards-supported networking vendors. This allows for an OcNOS solution that fits easily into existing networks. Being a forerunner in the networking sphere, OcNOS has many features which incorporate disruptive technologies to change the way networking is deployed and used.
