IP Infusion Participates in NetWorld+Interop 2002 MPLS Initiative

10/8/2002 - IP Infusion, a leading provider of intelligent network software for enhanced IP services, announced that it participated in the NetWorld+Interop 2002 Atlanta InteropNet Labs (iLabs) MPLS initiative. IP Infusion tested its RSVP-TE, LDP, BGP-VPN, and Layer 2 VPN software and successfully interoperated with a number of leading communications equipment vendor implementations.

"IP Infusion's participating in the NetWorld+Interop's iLabs MPLS initiative was an excellent forum for us to further test and validate our MPLS software across a wide variety of vendor implementations. This kind of test environment is ideal to verify interoperability with the latest offerings from key industry vendors before customers attempt to implement multiple vendor solutions," said Dr. Govind Desale, vice president of operations at IP Infusion. "IP Infusion was the only source code software supplier to contribute to this MPLS initiative demonstration, and we successfully tested our entire MPLS product line."

This year's MPLS iLabs mainly focused on Layer 2 and Layer 3 services running transparently and simultaneously over the MPLS core. The MPLS interoperability test included: achieving interoperable MPLS BGP VPNs (RFC2547bis), simple MPLS Layer 2 point-to-point VPNs (IETF Martini draft), MPLS multicast VPNs (IETF Rosen draft), IPv6 over MPLS, and VPLS which adds switching, MAC address learning and support for building point-to-multipoint and mesh topologies.

The MPLS interoperability initiative allowed vendors to test against a number of leading MPLS solutions, including those from: Cisco Systems, Extreme Networks, Foundry Networks, Juniper Networks, Laurel Networks, and Riverstone Networks. IP Infusion provided RSVP-TE, BGP-VPN, and LDP solutions.

IP Infusion designs, develops, and markets its ZebOSTM family of advanced IP routing suites, which are based on a unique, modular, multi-process architecture featuring control-plane components that provide route redistribution and conversion, management services, and an OS/processor abstraction layer for routing and switching modules. This high-performance routing software features OSPF, BGP, RIP, PIM-SM, and IS-IS routing protocols; MPLS, BGP-VPN, RSVP-TE, and CR-LDP switching and signaling protocols; and Mobile IP, routing redundancy, multicast, virtual routing, and Layer 2 VPN (MPLS Layer 2 Virtual Circuit based on draft-ietf-l2circuit-trans-mpls-08.txt and draft-ietf-l2circuit-encap-mpls-04.txt support. ZebOS software suites can be delivered as either portable, platform-independent source code or in server solutions.
