Tail-f and IP Infusion Team on Networking Protocols

IP Infusion and Tail-f Systems announced a strategic alliance to provide advanced communications software configured by a single carrier-grade management system with support for CLI, Web, SNMP, and NETCONF management interfaces.

The alliance between the two companies includes collaboration on product integration, sales and marketing initiatives. IP Infusion will integrate and license Tail-f Systems' ConfD on-device management software with its ZebOS networking protocol stacks.

IP Infusion's ZebOS Networking Platform is a scalable, robust and standards-based Layer 2 and Layer 3 carrier-class switching, routing and data center bridging software solution, which allows OEMs to rapidly add networking capabilities to their new or existing lines of communications products. With ConfD, IP Infusion's customers will be able to choose from additional management interfaces including Cisco and Juniper Networks-style CLIs, Web UI and NETCONF Agent. They will also benefit from support for capabilities such as transaction management, high availability, security and role-based access control.
