SUNNYVALE, Calif., April 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- IP Infusion, Inc., a leading provider of intelligent network software for enhanced Ethernet and IP services, today announced the company will demonstrate its ZebOS® Control Plane platform with support for OpenFlow™ at the Open Networking Summit 2012. IP Infusion will demonstrate how Software-Defined Networking (SDN) solutions can leverage the OpenFlow protocol to improve service quality for mobile video applications. Open Networking Summit 2012 will take place April 16 -18 at the Santa Clara Marriott, California. The demo configuration leverages Broadcom's StrataXGS® BCM56624 high performance switch solution, part of the Enterprise Value GbE product line. IP Infusion utilized its Advanced Hardware Integration Software (AHIS) for the Broadcom StrataXGS BCM56624 that allowed the development team to quickly and directly integrate to the Broadcom® Software Development Kit (SDK). IP Infusion provides pre-integration modules to speed time to market for several of Broadcom's networking platforms, which work with Broadcom's SDK to access advanced switch features and configurations.
IP Infusion is a pioneer in SDN with more than a decade of experience developing software-based routing and switching solutions. IP Infusion's ZebOS Control Plane—a core component of the ZebOS Network Platform Software—is built upon an SDN architecture. The demonstration exemplifies the SDN Hybrid Mode, and illustrates how OpenFlow streamlines network failover and facilitates flexible policy management. The demo configuration will include switches using merchant semiconductor switching silicon and leveraging IP Infusion's Advanced Hardware Integration Software. IP Infusion's ZebOS platform is designed for portability across a range of standard and custom control processor platforms.
"Through the OpenFlow demonstrations showcased at the Open Networking Summit, we are seeing increased interoperability, flexibility and overall agility that will soon be available in the industry," said Dan Pitt, executive director of the Open Networking Foundation. "With the support from our member companies, networking pioneers, and other industry leaders in Software-Defined Networking, OpenFlow is revolutionizing networking, not only in the future, but today."
"Broadcom's expanding ecosystem of trusted partners provides our diverse customer base with the ability to reduce design complexity and achieve faster time-to-market," said Jim McKeon, director of product marketing, Network Switch, at Broadcom. "IP Infusion's integrated platform leverages the advanced features of our StrataXGS switch solutions and OpenFlow to improve quality of service for mobile video applications."
"Video content on mobile networks is one of the most pressing issues for global network operators today," said Sandy Orlando, vice president of marketing at IP Infusion. "We believe that the future of Operator networks is software-defined networking. This real-world use case will illustrate how service providers can address the mobile video deluge impacting their networks by rethinking network architecture with an SDN mindset."
In ZebOS, IP Infusion provides a comprehensive routing and switching software that has been deployed in five 9's networks across five continents for more than a decade.
