IP Infusion Releases OcNOS; Enables Network Operators to Design Cost-Effective Data Centers
By apacciooutlook | Monday, December 03, 2018
SANTA CLARA, CA: IP Infusion, a provider of intelligent network software for telecom and data communications services, announces the latest release of OcNOS, a full-featured network operating system for data center and enterprise networking. The latest version, OcNOS v 1.1, is a fast, easy and affordable network operating system with extensive protocol support for enterprise class routing, switching and MPLS (Multiprotocol Label Switching), to help build scalable network platforms
OcNOS brings the power of the Open Compute Project, an open hardware movement and foundation, to data networking to reduce operational complexity. OcNOS (Open Compute Network Operating System), Linux-based network operating system is a robust, programmable and innovative operating system, featuring a single software image that runs across the entire portfolio of Open Compute platforms from leading network device vendors.
OcNOS Release 1.1 gives network operators and service providers the advanced L2/L3 technology (OSI Layerfor data link and network layer respectively) to re-design their data centers for large and small enterprises. The combination of the added Layer 2, Layer 3 and MPLS (Multiprotocol Label Switching) features within OcNOS Release 1.1 and the new open standards allows network operators to design extendable, cost-effective data centers.
The new Layer 2, Layer 3 and MPLS features in Release 1.1 include MC-LAG (Multi-Chassis Link Aggregation Group) that allows for node level redundancy along with link redundancy using link aggregation. TRILL which provides bandwidth scaling and an underlay fabric suitable across data center. Uplink Failure Detection/Trigger Failover (UFD/TFO) for faster link failure detection and faster convergence. Multiple VR Support for VRRP, VRF Lite and BGP Selective FIB Install within Layer 3. MPLS Support, including use of RSVP with IETF Integrated Services, support of differentiated services, protocol extensions for support of Diff-Serve-aware MPLS Traffic Engineering, VPWS and VPLS Services with RSVP FRR. These features help for tighter SLAs from the network, for both bandwidth and redundancy, which is critical in transport networks. Support BGP-EVPN with VxLAN for a modern hybrid Layer2/Layer3 data center solution (beta version). Security features including automatic error disable with auto recovery and control plane DOS protection.
“When network operators design new data centers or expand their network with more remote locations for improved redundancy, they have the challenge of keeping pace with greater performance needs while still lowering costs,” says Kiyo Oishi, CEO and president of IP Infusion. “With the latest OcNOS release they have field-proven tools in their development toolbox to build scalable network platforms that provide for faster time-to-deployment, increased agility and cost effectiveness.”
