IP Infusion Starts Licensing VirNOS Virtual Network Platform to Bring NFV to Customers Worldwide

IP Infusion, Inc., a leading provider of intelligent network software for enhanced Ethernet and IP services, today announced that IP Infusion has started licensing its VirNOS virtual network platform based on Network Functions Virtualization (NFV). IP Infusion has been granting licenses to introduce and demonstrate the VirNOS solution to customers seeking network implementation solutions.

Prior to this announcement, NEC, who is one of world-leading ICT vendors, had been licensed by IP Infusion to demonstrate VirNOS. IP Infusion and NEC collaboratively and successfully conducted extensive evaluation of the VirNOS software cooperating with NEC’s NFV solutions inclusive of its Virtualized Evolved Packet Core (vEPC) under multi-vendors’ network environments. NEC and IP Infusion have already been placing NFV evaluations at major telecom carriers globally.

“With NEC’s wealth of experience in large-scale network implementation, combined with IP Infusion’s new VirNOS platform, customers can realize how they will be able to offer new network services more readily, and scale services up and down to support their changing business requirements,” said Kiyo Oishi, CEO and president of IP Infusion.

The VirNOS NFV-based software platform virtualizes network functions to give network operators a cost-effective approach to deploy and manage their networking services. With VirNOS, network service development can benefit from:

  • Supports flow switching via OpenFlow for easy deployment of innovative routing and switching protocols
  • Ideal for virtual machines, high-security networks and next generation IP-based mobile networks
  • Uses Intel DPDK to provide programming framework that scales and enables faster development of high speed data packet networking applications
  • Supports IPv4 and IPv6 dynamic routing protocols (BGP4+, OSPF v2/v3, ISIS, Static)
  • Supports MPLS signaling protocols (LDP, RSVP, BGP Labeled Unicast)
  • Provides support for MPLS based VPNv4 and VPNv6.
  • Supports VRF (Virtual Routing Forwarding), enabling activations of protocols such as BGP4+, OSPFv2/v3, VRRP and BFD
  • Supports ACL enabled filtering and QoS (available by end of December 2014)
