IP Infusion to Release ZebOS(R) Network Platform 7.8

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Feb. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- IP Infusion, an ACCESS company and provider of intelligent software for Next Generation Network (NGN) equipment manufacturers and converged IP services providers, today announced the release of its ZebOS Network Platform version 7.8 software. Available in April 2010, ZebOS 7.8 features support for Generalized Multiprotocol Label Switching (GMPLS), Data Center Bridging, Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) resiliency for wireless backhaul and Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) implementations required for Carrier Ethernet deployments.

GMPLS Support

Today's networks are long overdue for a major upgrade to next generation packet-based optical technology. Moving forward, NGN technology will need automated interface-independent provisioning, simplified network administration and IP/MPLS enabled end-to-end networks. GMPLS has been standardized to add control plane functionality that was missing in MPLS and will deliver a seamless control plane and network management at the performance and price-points required by equipment manufacturers today. ZebOS 7.8 is the first solution to embrace GMPLS support features, and subsequent releases of the ZebOS Network Platform will continue to enhance this support.

"Driven by the explosive growth in today's mobile devices, demand for network traffic bandwidth and capacity is doubling every year, and is now overwhelming the legacy SONET based networks," said Koichi Narasaki, president and CEO, IP Infusion. "The new, ground-breaking features included in ZebOS 7.8 will change the way network equipment manufacturers design networks, thus solidifying IP Infusion's role as an industry leader in providing the essential, market-ready solutions vendors need to rapidly deploy products in the expanding NGN markets."
