IP Infusion and Hardware Nation

We build flexible and cost effective disaggregated networks powered by IP Infusion's production-hardened OcNOS software.

What is IP Infusion OcNOS?

IP Infusion OcNOS, also known as Open Compute Network Operating System, is an open network operating system designed to run on white box/bare metal network infrastructure. Widely deployed in access, aggregation, transport, and data center use cases, OcNOS-based solutions streamline operations and enable automation. The platform boasts extensive programmability, facilitating end-to-end network management and orchestration. With a single software image compatible with the entire range of Open Compute platforms from top-tier vendors, OcNOS ensures uniform operations, automated workflows, and high availability, all while substantially cutting operational costs. Below are some of the benefits of OcNOS:

Lower TCO by 65-75%

Proven in real-world use cases, OcNOS effectively reduces the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) by 65-75%, demonstrating its cost-efficiency and practicality for a wide range of applications.

Cisco-like CLI

Featuring a standard Cisco-like CLI, OcNOS minimizes the learning curve for users, allowing seamless integration and quick adoption within existing network environments.

Hardened and Field-Tested NOS

OcNOS stands out as one of the most comprehensive, mature, hardened, and field-tested disaggregated network software platforms available in the market, setting the benchmark for reliability and performance.

IP Infusion Use Cases

IP Infusion OcNOS use cases include access networks, aggregation services, data centers, and transport services. 

Access Networks

The OcNOS Cell Site Router delivers software compatible with a variety of hardware platforms, adhering to both the Open Compute Project (OCP) and Telecom Infra Project (TIP) Disaggregated Cell Site Gateway (DCSG) requirements.

Aggregation Services

The OcNOS Aggregation Router effortlessly integrates with conventional services such as L2VPN, L3VPN, VPWS, and VPLS while offering advanced options like EVPN alongside traditional and cutting-edge transport like MPLS, VxLAN, SR, and SRv6. This enables seamless transition between traditional and next-gen transports and services.

Data Centers

OcNOS DC is a field-hardened disaggregated networking product that has fully migrated a Tier-1 Internet Exchange. It delivers exceptional flexibility in scaling while maintaining a small footprint, thanks to its optimized design. Supported use cases encompass DC-CLOS, multi-tenant DC (Underlay + Overlay), BGP Peering Router, and Data Center Interconnect.

Transport Services

OcNOS RON is a consolidated carrier-grade NOS for aggregation, metro, long-haul transport, and data center interconnect applications, validated by TIP community labs. The compact 1.5 RU Cassini-based product offers 100/200G OLS with a 6.4 Tbps switch fabric. It supports 400G ZR/ZR+ optics for longhaul use cases, seamlessly integrating with existing aggregation products.

Telcos and ISPs are increasingly adopting the open networking model due to improved hardware availability, lower TCO, enhanced flexibility, and the ability to future-proof their networks against technological obsolescence.
