Companies Team up to Bring Innovation and Choice to the Service Provider Market
SANTA CLARA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#Ethernet—IP Infusion, a leading provider of open network software solutions for wireline and mobile network operators, today announced it is collaborating with Marvell Technology, Inc., a leader in data infrastructure semiconductor solutions, to develop new Ethernet switching solutions to intelligently enable secure and efficient data transport in Service Provider networks.
With the proliferation of 5G, including its growing use in private networks, edge cloud and industrial IoT, network architectures have evolved to a more distributed and virtualized model. To operate within this new model, software and hardware network components must be more flexible than in the past. The new solutions, which include IP Infusion’s OcNOS software and Marvell’s switch silicon, will be built with the flexibility and feature depth needed to fulfill the imminent needs of the radio access and carrier edge networks to support 5G transformation.
“IP Infusion is a strong partner for Marvell given our common interest and leadership in disaggregated Service Provider solutions,” said John DaCosta, vice president of product marketing of Marvell. “Across multiple domains, we’ve optimized our Prestera® switch silicon for carrier requirements. Together, we will deliver improved network intelligence and performance for disaggregated network buildouts.”
The companies’ offerings will bolster the development of open and disaggregated solutions, in line with the principles of Telecom Infra Project, adding new merchant silicon options while reducing deployment CapEx and OpEx, compared to alternatives. Telecom Infra Project is a global community of companies and organizations that are driving infrastructure solutions to advance global connectivity.
“The IP Infusion and Marvell collaboration will help to bring more technological diversity to the telecom ecosystem,” said Kristian Toivo, Executive Director of Telecom Infra Project. “Marvell’s silicon advances integrated with IP Infusion’s robust software will help accelerate the move to disaggregated and open solutions, which are essential for delivering more choice, flexibility and innovation in the way networks are built.”
“Technology collaborations by industry leaders ensure timely innovation in an always fast-moving marketplace,” said Atsushi Ogata, President and CEO of IP Infusion. “IP Infusion’s OcNOS software with Marvell silicon promises to help any Service Providers’ go-to-market strategy for products to service 5G networks, and beyond.”
