IP Infusion releases Optical Transport solution for data center interconnect

IP Infusion, a provider of intelligent network software for telecom and data communications services, has announced general availability of their new OcNOS® Optical Transport solution will enable support for modular open packet transponder systems for data center interconnect, long haul and service provider backhaul use cases, the company said.

OcNOS is the industry´s first full-featured network operating system for seamless transition from traditional networks to white box implementations.

The first available platform for the OcNOS-based solution is the Cassini packet transponder from Edgecore Networks. Cassini is the industry´s highest capacity (3.2T) and first modular open packet transponder, offering a flexible mix of 100 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) packet switching ports and 100/200 Gbps coherent optical interfaces.

The Cassini platform enables DMDM-based long haul transport and supports CFP2 ACO and DCO modules from different vendors which support L2/L3/Multicast features for metro, long haul and data center interconnect use cases. Both packet switching and optical line side can be managed via CLI, SNMP or NETCONF.

As part of the Telecom Infra Project´s (TIP) Open Optical & Packet Transport project group, IP Infusion is coordinating the integration of all the elements of the fully disaggregated transport network, including the Transponder Abstraction Interface (TAI) API for uniform management of optical modules from different vendors.

IP Infusion enables disaggregated networking solutions for carriers, service providers and data center operators. Additional information can be found at http://www.ipinfusion.com
