IP Infusion releases OS for open packet transponder systems

IP Infusion released its new OcNOS Optical Transport software stack for modular open packet transponder systems designed for data center interconnect, long haul and service provider backhaul use cases.

OcNOS is a network operating system for white box open packet transponder systems. The first available platform for the OcNOS-based solution is the Cassini packet transponder from Edgecore Networks.

Cassini is the industry's highest capacity (3.2T) and first modular open packet transponder, offering a flexible mix of 100 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) packet switching ports and 100/200 Gbps coherent optical interfaces. The Cassini platform enables DMDM-based long haul transport and supports CFP2 ACO and DCO modules from different vendors which support L2/L3/Multicast features for metro, long haul and data center interconnect use cases. Both packet switching and optical line side can be managed via CLI, SNMP or NETCONF.

“The desire of network operators to control end-to-end solutions and components to achieve operational simplicity and open interfaces is driving the momentum towards open optical networking,” said Atsushi Ogata, CEO, IP Infusion. “The combination of the carrier-grade OcNOS networking operating system and the Cassini packet transponder from Edgecore Networks gives our network customers another example and further shows that IP Infusion is a leading software vendor for service provider network disaggregation.”

“With support for Cassini and DCSG, IP Infusion is well aligned with TIP and helping to drive disaggregated networking to service providers. We are pleased that disaggregated networking has now arrived for optical transport solutions,” said Dave Hutton, Chief Engineer, Telecom Infra Project.

IP Infusion qualifies Inphi's 100G for IPoDWDM

IP Infusion has qualified Inphi's COLORZ 100GbE DWDM Pulse Amplitude Modulation (PAM4) platform solution on the IP Infusion OcNOS network operating system. Specifically, Inphi’s COLORZ has been qualified across various white box platforms, allowing for a disaggregated networking solution supporting IPoDWDM data center connectivity.

Inphi’s COLORZ enables 100G DWDM for data center customers to connect their data centers within a metro area. COLORZ, which uses PAM4 and advanced silicon photonics, is available in the industry standard form factor QSFP28 and can be plugged directly into an open slot of a switch or router without the need for a separate transport box. COLORZ delivers up to 4 Tbps of bandwidth over a single fiber.


IP Infusion's OcNOS is a modular extensible network OS for white box open networking solutions offering switching and routing protocol support ranging from Layer2, Layer 3 to Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS), and APIs/protocols for SDN. OcNOS features hybrid, centralized or distributed network support; scalable, modular high-performance network; and a robust data plane built on merchant silicon.

“Having native COLORZ support available on the IP Infusion OcNOS operating system, will allow customers to deploy cost effective 100G DWDM connectivity using white box platforms and meet their desire for building low cost flexible disaggregated optical network infrastructure,” said Dr. Loi Nguyen, founder, senior vice president, Optical Interconnect at Inphi. “Customers can now de-couple hardware and software in their DWDM network.”

“The qualification of Inphi’s COLORZ will extend the acceptance of white box solutions based OcNOS to a greater customer base allowing multiplexing of high-speed data stream over single fiber and enabling easy scaling of network capacity for DCI,” said Atsushi Ogata, CEO and President of IP Infusion. “Inphi will continue to be a vital partner for us as we continue to expand the NOS functions and support for current and future Inphi and IP Infusion white box solution customers.”

IP Infusion Intros SDN OS for Data Centers

IP Infusion introduced its network operating system for data center and enterprise networking based on SDN.

OcNOS provides protocol support for enterprise class routing, switching and MPLS.  The company said its code can be used to build scalable network platforms that align with the Open Compute Project.

IP Infusion also announced that Dell customers are now able to purchase the OcNOS network operating system to run on Dell’s S6000 high performance Open Networking systems through a distribution agreement both companies signed in April 2015. Under this partnership, Dell worked closely with IP Infusion to help provide enterprise customers with a cost-effective and scalable Data Center Switching, enterprise class Layer 2, Layer 3 switching and MPLS-based network virtualization solution that provides secure connectivity and aggregated management. This joint solution enables enterprise customers to adopt MPLS virtualization capabilities within their data centers and campus environments at a fraction of the cost, power, space and cooling requirements as compared to today’s market offerings.
