9/4/2003 - IP Infusion, a leading provider of intelligent network software for enhanced IP services, announced the availability of ZebOS® Access Products Suite (APS) version 1.2, an integrated networking and management software solution for the access equipment market. The ZebOS APS enables equipment vendors to rapidly design and build home gateways, SOHO routers, security appliances, and wireless LAN and WAN devices.

The ZebOS Access Products Suite delivers a comprehensive set of configuration tools that combine IP Infusion’s advanced IPv4 and IPv6 routing software with DHCP client and server, NAT, stateful packet inspection firewall, PPPoE client, and virtual server. The ZebOS APS provides an industry-standard command line interface (CLI) and an intuitive web user interface to manage IP Infusion’s routing protocols and Linux network applications. ZebOS APS version 1.2 introduces OSPFv2 routing and a customizable management interface API that allows equipment vendors to easily add, remove, or change CLI commands.

ZebOS APS is designed for MontaVista® Linux® Professional Edition with the Intel® IXP425 Network Processor and Red Hat Linux with the Intel Pentium processor. The Intel IXP425 is the ideal platform for high performance devices because it includes an XScaleTM core and optimized microengine architecture custom built for networking applications.

The expansion of broadband access to homes and small businesses has generated a new class of networking products that enable Internet connectivity to a wide range of devices and provide simple, intuitive management for residential users. Many new TV set-top boxes, home media servers and theater systems, Internet access modems, printers, and game consoles require networking functionality. In addition, the growing number of small enterprises with Internet access needs affordable, easy-to-configure routing and security devices.

“The widespread adoption of residential DSL and cable broadband access has driven demand for intelligent home and SOHO networking products. And this demand continues to increase; while other telecommunication industries have diminished since 2000, the home networking equipment market continues to enjoy strong revenue growth. Both startup and established hardware manufacturers want to take advantage of this unique opportunity,” said Gary Hemminger, Vice President, Marketing at IP Infusion. “The ZebOS Access Products Suite allows equipment vendors to quickly and easily integrate networking and management capabilities to their access devices.”
