IP Infusion, which is known for its ZebOS Network Platform software and its domain expertise in network protocols, network appliances and IP-aware applications, is now offering turnkey Network Solutions Services to help telecommunications suppliers achieve the fastest time-to-market. The services include network consulting, network equipment customization and testing.

In addition to licensing, maintenance and support, IP Infusion provides consultation on network software architectures, design, technologies, protocols and product development. IP Infusion's Network Solutions Services are available across the entire product development lifecycle. The company said its Q/A testing lab provides an extensive range of testing scenarios, which can include more than 12,000 test scripts and interoperability use cases, many of which are not generally made available to customers in this industry.
