“IP Infusion continues to listen to the growing needs and demands of the communications equipment vendors, enabling them to develop highly functional and competitive products for next generation IP networks,” said Perry Constantine, President and CEO of IP Infusion. “Our additions of PIM-SM for IPv6, advanced Layer 2 support for the Broadcom StrataXGS, and RSVP-TE Fast Reroute shows our commitment to being the leader in the networking software market and helping our customers deliver cutting-edge products to market faster, while reducing their overall expenditures.”

About ZebOS Advanced Routing Suite Version 7.1 Features

Layer 2 Advanced Software for the Broadcom StrataXGS Switch Development Kit
The ZebOS Layer 2 Advanced Switching & VLAN software is a family of Ethernet bridging, Spanning Tree, Multicast, and VLAN packages that provide advanced L2 functionality for vendors building routing and switching equipment. IP Infusion has integrated and optimized its ZebOS Layer 2 switching software on the Broadcom StrataXGS Switch Development Kit. Using Broadcom’s switch development kit and the ZebOS L2 switching and VLAN software, original device manufacturers (ODMs) and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) can rapidly bring full Ethernet switching solutions to market without the costly software and hardware development normally associated with complex device development.

IP Infusion's Protocol Independent Multicast-Sparse Mode (PIM-SM) Module for IPv6 routes multicast packets to multicast groups, and is designed to efficiently establish distribution trees across wide area networks (WANs). PIM-SM is called "protocol independent" because it can use the route information that any routing protocol enters into the multicast Routing Information Base (RIB). The PIM-SM v6 Module is fully integrated and tested with ZebOS Network Services Module (NSM) and other ZebOS IPv6 protocol modules and is written in ANSI C.

RSVP-TE Fast Reroute
Fast Reroute is a mechanism that facilitates fast local repair of LSPs in case of link or node failures. It extends RSVP to request link or node protection by appending a Fast Reroute object in the Path message, which indicates to downstream LSRs that a locally generated backup LSP should be setup to backup this Protected LSP in case the downstream link or node fails.

ZebOS ARS version 7.1 is available immediately for delivery. For further details, please visit our web site at www.ipinfusion.com, send an email to info@ipinfusion.com, or call 408.794.1500.
