IP Infusion Extends Advanced IPv6 Routing and PIM-SM Multicast Support to Servers and Appliances

11/6/2002 - IP Infusion, a leading provider of intelligent network software for enhanced IP services, announced that ZebOSTM Server Routing Suite (SRS) version 1.2 introduces RIPng, OSPFv3, BGP-4+ and PIM-SM support, expanding IP Infusion's comprehensive product offerings to support next generation IPv6 and multicast routing. ZebOS SRS is an easy-to-install application that offers IPv4 and IPv6 routing and switching for servers and appliances. Targeted at enterprises, telecommunication companies and service providers, the scalable ZebOS SRS software provides dynamic route updates, load balancing, high availability, route monitoring, and flexible integration with other server applications.

The new IPv6 routing suite provides a simple and cost-effective means for organizations to evaluate and deploy IPv6 routing technology. The IPv6 ZebOS SRS implementation supports native IPv6 or IPv4/IPv6 dual routing stack solutions. IP Infusion's routing products were designed from the ground up to support both IPv4 and IPv6, so the IPv6 routing software utilizes memory and processing resources as efficiently as the IPv4 implementation and the IPv6 routing protocols can seamlessly communicate with the IPv4 routing protocols and with other IPv6 routing protocols. IP Infusion's robust IPv6 routing solution allows organizations to test and implement IPv6 routing without purchasing dedicated equipment or disrupting their production networks.

IP Infusion's new Protocol Independent Multicast-Sparse Mode (PIM-SM) routing suite allows organizations to provision scalable multicast routing on standard servers and appliances. PIM-SM routes multicast packets to selected groups and distributes content efficiently across wide area networks. The PIM-SM ZebOS SRS supports Static Rendezvous Point configuration, Reverse Path Forwarding algorithm, rooted multicast delivery trees, IGMPv2, neighbor discovery, Bootstrap Router election, Candidate-RP advertisements, and SNMP management support through PIM-SM MIBs. It also provides a flexible, inexpensive way for organizations to deploy a PIM-SM multicast network or to support PIM-SM pass-through on firewalls or other network devices.

In addition to IPv6 routing and PIM-SM multicast support, the ZebOS Server Routing Suite delivers RIP, OSPF, and BGP routing functionality. The scalable, modular architecture of the ZebOS SRS allows all of the routing protocols to operate independently, enabling new routing protocols to be added or upgraded without affecting other routing processes. IP Infusion's ZebOS SRS software is ideally suited for organizations seeking a flexible, scalable, and cost-effective means to evaluate and provision IPv4, IPv6, MPLS-VPN and PIM-SM multicast routing and switching technologies.

The ZebOS Server Routing Suite is available immediately. For further details, please send an email to info@ipinfusion.com, or call 408.794.1500.
