IP Infusion Adds GMPLS, Data Center Bridging, MEF Support

IP Infusion announced a major update to its ZebOS software for network equipment suppliers. Available in April 2010, ZebOS® 7.8 adds support for Generalized Multiprotocol Label Switching (GMPLS), Data Center Bridging, Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) resiliency for wireless backhaul and Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) implementations required for Carrier Ethernet deployments.


GMPLS support delivers seamless control plane and network management capabilities for next generation packet-based optical networks. This enables automated interface-independent provisioning, simplified network administration and IP/MPLS end-to-end networks. GMPLS. ZebOS 7.8 embraces GMPLS support features and subsequent releases of the ZebOS Network Platform will continue to enhance this support.


Data Center Bridging is a unifying Ethernet-based technology for switch fabrics in the data center. Converged single technology switch fabrics in the data center can optimize traffic for cloud computing while reducing costs, power and space requirements.


The new wireless access/backhaul capabilities of ZebOS 7.8 leverage MPLS reliability features, such as Virtual Circuit Connectivity Verification (VCCV), Bi-Directional Forwarding Detection (BFD) for MPLS LSPs, and BFD for VCCV. In addition to maintaining the features of ZebOS 7.7, ZebOS 7.8 also includes:


  • MEF specifications (MEF-2,9,11,16,13,17,19,20)

  • BGP Multipath Routing

  • Policy Based Routing
