IP Infusion Releases IPI DC-BOX, a Ready-to-Deploy Data Center in a Bundle

IP Infusion, a leading provider of intelligent network software for telecom and data communications services, announced that the company is releasing IPI DC-BOX, a ready-to-deploy data center in a bundle, making it easier to build a data center Point of Delivery (POD) with software, open networking switches and configurations or to build their own configuration from individual switches loaded with software.

IPI DC-BOX, a pre-validated solution, gives data center operators the benefits of faster deployment and improved time-to-market in an easy-to-order bundle which includes the required software, hardware support and cables. The IPI DC-BOX bundle includes two leaf switches (AS5812-54X) and two spine switches (AS7712-32X) from Edgecore Networks running OcNOS network operating system from IP Infusion. With this pre-validated bundle, data center operators are now able to deploy an Internet Exchange solution or CLOS Fabric for faster cloud data center roll-outs.

IPI DC-BOX supports common data center architectures such as Leaf Spine architecture, CLOS Fabric, Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC), and Multi-tenant cloud data centers. As an example, The London Internet Exchange (LINX) uses the combination of OcNOS and Edgecore switches in their LINX LON2 network, the world's first disaggregated network using EVPN technology and an extended data center leaf-spine architecture spread over 10 locations.

The pre-configured IPI DC-BOX bundle is installed with the carrier-grade OcNOS network operating system on white box switches to give data center operators the benefits of disaggregated networking. The DC solution supports key features such as L3 fabric, controllerless management using EVPN, network segmentation and virtualization using VXLAN, multihoming for redundancy, BFD for faster convergence, ACL/QoS policies for fine grained control, support for sFlow and management automation.

"IPI DC-BOX accelerates the move to next generation data center architectures with open networking switches and delivers carrier-grade performance," said Atsushi Ogata, President and CEO of IP Infusion. "With the DC-BOX bundle, IPI serves as a single point of contact for our customers seeking to leverage the benefits of disaggregated networks with the goal of making the ordering and support process simpler."

IP Infusion's hardware and technology partners who support IPI DC-BOX include:

"We conducted very thorough research on the various disaggregated options, addressed the challenges and validated this solution for use by others in the industry who are considering the implementation of a disaggregated model. LINX deployed OcNOS on open network switches from Edgecore Networks based on Broadcom Tomahawk and Trident II+ silicon to build the disaggregated model for our LON2 network. This solution is delivering reduced total cost of ownership and greater levels of service quality to our members." - Richard Petrie, Chief Technology Officer of The London Internet Exchange (LINX).

"Edgecore industry-leading open network switches, along with IP Infusion's robust, high function OcNOS network operating system makes the IPI DC-BOX a convenient package to build modern data centers. Open network architectures allow data center operators to build capacity to meet demand, using standard components that can scale and at a lower cost than traditional designs. Data center operators will now be delivering more services, at lower costs, with the flexibility and performance of an open network architecture at 100G." - George Tchaparian, CEO, Edgecore Networks.

"We are pleased to work with IPI to support OcNOS carrier grade network operating system on Broadcom's switching silicon. OcNOS' rich feature set including VxLAN and BGP EVPN combined with Broadcom's market-leading switches is a powerful combination for modern cloud data center use cases." - Eli Karpilovski, Director, Product Management and Marketing - Switch Software, Switch Products, Broadcom.
