IP Infusion, a leading provider of network disaggregation solutions for telecom and data communications operators, today announced a partnership with Larch Networks, a network system integrator, to develop cost-effective, disaggregated networking solutions for enterprise, telecom, industrial and military customers across a variety of use cases based on popular silicon platforms.
As a systems engineering, implementation and deployment company for the past 12 years, Larch Networks creates state-of-the-art, customized embedded networks equipment solutions, provides integration services and customer support. Under the agreement, Larch Networks will develop a new market offering, based on the proven IP Infusion OcNOS® network operating system and custom-tailored by Larch Networks to meet the requirements of their Tier 1, 2 and 3 customers.
Many companies are creating systems that utilize high-speed Ethernet networks at their core to get any possible added value to services. These include blade high performance computing, AI processing, data delivery, Ethernet-based Flash storage for the broad spectrum of market use cases.
Larch Networks develops tailor-made solutions that may be implemented using a full range of silicon platforms including Marvell, Intel, Xilinx, and Broadcom with IP Infusion OcNOS as managing software for these systems. Latest deployment of the OcNOS-based solution is an implementation of mesh radio network in one of the top five Israeli IT companies that consist of more than 30,000 devices.
“Working with IP Infusion, we will eliminate the barrier faced by service providers of buying the source code and creating the systems by themselves,” said Alexander Cheskis, Co-Founder and CEO at Larch Networks. “Larch Networks satisfies the needs for a growing variety of integration use cases. We are now able to lower the barriers of entry for disaggregated networking and match their requirements whether they are developing industrial-grade networks for security and military devices or data centers with high-speed requirements.
“We are excited to be working with Larch Networks to bring disaggregated networking solutions that allow for customization with standard software and hardware options at a lower cost to their worldwide customer base,” said Atsushi Ogata, President and CEO of IP Infusion. “With OcNOS, Larch Networks customers can simplify their option to network development and accelerate their development of disaggregated networks for today and for the future.”
OcNOS is the industry’s first full-featured modular extensible network OS for white box open networking solutions offering advanced capabilities that include extensive switching and routing support ranging from MPLS (Multiprotocol Label Switching), PTP (Precision Timing Protocol) and APIs/protocols for SDN (Software Defined Networking). OcNOS features hybrid, centralized,or distributed network support; scalable, modular high-performance network; and a robust data plane built on merchant silicon.
