IP Infusion, a provider of open network software solutions for wireline and mobile network operators, has announced a deal with Extreme Labs, an internet exchange point (IXP) focused on internet optimization that operates the largest internet exchange in India.
Extreme Labs has chosen IP Infusion’s OcNOS (a modular, multi-tasking network operating system) to diversify and strengthen its network disaggregation strategy. IP Infusion says that its software, running on Edgecore’s aggregation hardware, is now an integral part of the Extreme Labs infrastructure, supporting a more agile, cost-effective connectivity while increasing security.
Extreme Labs operates the Extreme IX Internet Exchange for more than 35 data centres across six major regions of India. Distribution partner EPS Global worked with IP Infusion to coordinate the platform strategy for entering the country and enabled Extreme Labs’ migration to OcNOS.
Focusing on Layer 2 connectivity, Extreme Labs says its fabric architecture brings high efficiency and low latency to the network by reducing the distance between endpoints. IP Infusion’s OcNOS solution enables Extreme Labs to deploy advanced connectivity features including virtual extensible LAN (VxLAN) for scalability and resiliency, as well as hardened security protocols that provide strong and restricted port security, traffic shaping and DDoS-protection storm control.
"IP Infusion’s OcNOS was selected for its modular and open structure that freed Extreme Labs from vendor lock-in to deliver a seamless migration towards its goal of total network disaggregation,” explains Atsushi Ogata, President and CEO of IP Infusion, adding: “This open architecture encourages innovation and faster time to market with new services.”
