IP Infusion To Support Intel IXA Portability Framework

12/18/2002 - IP Infusion, a leading provider of intelligent network software for enhanced IP services, announced that it will support the Intel® IXA Portability Framework by continuing implementation of emerging Network Processing Forum (NPF) standards and integration with the Intel® Software Development Kit (SDK) and that it will be licensing version 3.0 of the SDK.

IP Infusion's ZebOSTM Advanced Routing Suite (ARS) is compatible with the Intel® Control Plane Platform Development Kit (CP-PDK) of the SDK. Through its NPapi interfaces, IP Infusion continues to adapt to the evolving NPF api implementation agreements as they are finalized. IP Infusion also supports the Intel® IXA network processors and Intel® IXC1100 control plane processors and has demonstrated its ZebOS ARS protocol code running on the Intel® XScaleTM technology on which these processors are based. A robust development environment is possible when IP Infusion's ZebOS ARS is integrated with Intel's SDK via emerging api specifications from the NPF.

"IP Infusion continues its long standing commitment to broad based industry standards in the network processing space. Since the creation of the NPF, Intel has shown a great deal of support for these efforts; and having worked closely with Intel, I can attest to their vigorous contributions to the Forum and its goals," stated Chuck Sannipoli, Vice President and General Manager of the Network Processing Group at IP Infusion and member of the Board of Directors of the NPF.

"By working closely with IXA Developers and fellow NPF members like IP Infusion, we can quickly enable adaptation of emerging interface specifications, allowing customers efficient development of networking applications." stated Raj Yavatkar, Chief Software Architect for the Intel Internet Exchange Architecture.

IP Infusion and Intel both have representatives on the NPF board of directors and work closely through this standards body to establish implementation agreements for the industry.
