LG Electronics Chooses IP Infusion's ZebOS Advanced Routing Suite for their Next Generation Broadband, Multi-Service Switch/Router

7/17/2002 - LG Electronics and IP Infusion announced today that IP Infusion's ZebOS™ Advanced Routing Suite (ZebOS) is being integrated into LG Electronic's (LGE) Next Generation Broadband, Multi-Service Edge/Core Switch and Router System. ZebOS will provide IPv4, IPv6, and MPLS traffic engineering and VPN software support for LGE's Edge/Core Switch/Routers. The family of Multi-Service Switch/Routers (MSR) from LG Electronics will provide a variety of services, including: data, video, and voice interconnection.

"To deliver on our next generation broadband, multi-service switch/router, we needed to support IPv4 and IPv6 routing protocols as well as MPLS traffic engineering and VPN solutions," said Kyoung-In Kwon, Ph.D. Senior Research Engineer at LG Electronics. "IP Infusion was clearly the leader in this space, as they not only provided scalable IPv4 and IPv6 routing protocols, but also had a complete set of MPLS solutions that fully integrated with their IPv4 and IPv6 solutions. By choosing IP Infusion's solution, LG Electronics can work with a single vendor to provide our routing and switching protocols needs."

"We are proud to have been selected by LG Electronics for their next generation broadband equipment. We are especially pleased that they have licensed our complete IPv4, IPv6, and MPLS solutions for integration into their multi-service switch/routers," said Nick Keating, President and CEO of IP Infusion. "This validates our plan to offer the most complete, scalable, integrated routing and switching solution on the market. For those vendors needing both MPLS and IPv4/IPv6 protocol solutions, IP Infusion is well placed to serve their needs without going to multiple vendors."

LG Electronics Multi-service Edge Switch (CellBit) will be ready for shipping in 4Q, 2002. Multi-service Edge/Core Switch & Router (MSR) will be ready for shipping in 2Q, 2003. The MSR is a high-performance switch that supports ATM, IP, MPLS, POS, Gigabit Ethernet, FR, and CES. In IPOA service, it can achieve data-gram termination and can connect the Gigabit backbone router to ATM or POS with STM-1 rates or higher. Because it can connect the Gigabit Ethernet and Fast Ethernet, it can also be used as an access application. The MSR also provide redundant hardware and fault-tolerant software that guarantees carrier-class performance and stability.

IP Infusion provides IS-ISv4 as well as OSPF, BGP, and RIP for both IPv4 and IPv6 routing support of the MSR. In addition, IP Infusion also provides MPLS LDP, RSVP-TE, and BGP-VPN (MPLS-VPN) extensions for use in the MSR. IP Infusion's ZebOS Advanced Routing Suite allows equipment vendors, such as LG Electronics, to quickly integrate leading edge routing and switching protocols into their communication equipment.
