The London Internet Exchange to deploy IP Infusion system

IP Infusion, a provider of disaggregated networking solutions and intelligent network software, has announced that London Internet Exchange (LINX) deployed IP Infusion´s OcNOSâ„¢ network operating system in their secondary London interconnect platform (LON2), the company said.

LINX, one of the largest operators of Internet Exchange Point (IXP) services connecting over 820 networks in over 75 countries, is the first IXP in the world to adopt a disaggregated model that employs EVPN over VXLAN, leaf-spine topology, full automation and is 100G ready to deliver reduced total cost of ownership and bring greater levels of service quality to their customers.

LINX is confirming that they have deployed the OcNOS network operating software on open network switches from Edgecore Networks — AS7712-32X 100 GbE and AS5812-54X 10 GbE based on Broadcom Tomahawk and Trident II+ silicon respectively — to build the disaggregated model for their LON2 network. The member migrations to LON2 are in progress and are expected to be completed in June.

OcNOS now supports a highly scalable 100G interconnection fabric for connecting multiple distributed locations. The solution uses control plane learning using EVPN, network segmentation and virtualization using VXLAN, multihoming for redundancy, ACL/QoS policies for fine grained control of member traffic, support for sFlow and management automation.

The London Internet Exchange (LINX) is a mutual membership association for operators of IP networks. It provides peering services and public policy representation to over 780 members from in excess of 75 countries. LINX has a presence at 10 London sites and operates three UK local exchanges (LINX Manchester, LINX Scotland and LINX Cardiff) plus LINX NoVA in Northern Virginia, USA. The six LINX LANs currently handle around 8Tb/sec of peak traffic over private interconnect and its public peering network.
