ZebOS Advanced Routing Suite Preloads on Greenfield Packetry Products

5/12/2004 - IP Infusion, a leading provider of intelligent network software for enhanced IP services platforms, and Greenfield Networks, the emerging leader in world-class Ethernet switch silicon technology, announced the availability of the IP Infusion ZebOS® Advanced Routing Suite software for the Greenfield Packetry switching family and its reference design systems, GH3032 and GH6000. The combination of Greenfield’s PacketryTM architecture and IP Infusion’s software allows system manufacturers to introduce fully tested Gigabit Ethernet enterprise and metropolitan switching solutions, while lowering development risks and accelerating time-to-market.

The GH3032 is a complete 32-port Gigabit Ethernet Layer 2/3/4 switch development system. The GH6000 is a 128-port high-density Gigabit Ethernet reference chassis platform. These reference designs are based on Greenfield Networks’ high-performance and scalable Packetry family of switching products and are preloaded with an evaluation version of IP Infusion ZebOS Advanced Routing Suite, supporting a variety of layer 2 and layer 3 protocols, including IPv4, IPv6, and MPLS.

IP Infusion’s ZebOS software is a scalable, robust, and fully integrated Layer 2 and Layer 3 routing and switching software solution that allows OEMs to quickly add networking capabilities to their new and existing lines of switching products. The Packetry architecture coupled with ZebOS software enables customers to rapidly develop a wide range of fixed and chassis-based switching solutions with advanced features such as IPv4/IPv6 unicast and multicast routing, MPLS switching, and layer 2/3 VPNs.

“The ZebOS Advanced Routing Suite, preloaded on the Greenfield Packetry products, provides Gigabit Ethernet Enterprise and metropolitan switching equipment vendors with a powerful solution that reduces their development expenditures and speeds time-to-market, “said Gary Hemminger, vice president of marketing, at IP Infusion. “We are delighted to be working with Greenfield and are pleased to offer our customers highly competitive and interoperable solutions.”

“The ZebOS Advanced Routing suite enables us to showcase the industry leading feature set of the Packetry silicon including IPv6 routing, MPLS switching and layer 2 & 3 VPNs – in addition to layer 2 switching and IPv4 routing”, said Richard Heaton, vice president, software engineering and co-founder of Greenfield Networks. “The GH3032 and GH6000 with ZebOS gives OEMs and ODMs unprecedented ability to quickly bring advanced switching and routing solutions to market.”

Greenfield Networks will be demonstrating this combined solution during the week of May 10-13 in a suite at the Las Vegas Hilton, in conjunction with Networld + Interop at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
