Diggio, an internet service provider (ISP) from Austin, Texas, has chosen to implement IP Infusion’s OcNOS network operating system, coupled with Edgecore Networks hardware. The new networking solution enables Diggio to expand its network while benefiting from network disaggregation.
Diggio had to deploy new Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) peer routers, which enables the Internet to exchange routing information between autonomous systems, with industry standard capabilities in a colocation environment.
The Texas-based ISP will be using Infusion’s OcNOS solution with Edgecore AS5916-54KXS for BGP peering for its SD-WAN bonded Internet services. They will combine multiple Internet services into a single connection aimed at faster data throughput and zero downtime. The OcNOS-Edgecore platform would allow Diggio to expand its 10G connectivity service to 100G in the near future.
“After our in-depth analysis for a disaggregated network solution, the decision to select IP Infusion was easy, plus the whole implementation process has been pain free,” said Tanner Smith, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) for Diggio. “In addition to lowering our total cost of ownership, the on-boarding process for the IP Infusion solution was simple and easy thanks to very complete documentation, industry-de-facto command-line interface. In fact, we haven’t even had to contact their support services. Due to the success of this deployment, we plan to expand this model to other cities throughout the U.S.”
“Diggio is another company in a growing list of Internet Service Providers who are wanting to take the disaggregated network approach without relying on traditional networks to have more control over their network and deliver innovative services for their customers,” said Atsushi Ogata, President and CEO of IP Infusion. “They are proving that it doesn’t have to be a complicated and stressful process. IP Infusion is significantly increasing their ability to create innovative services and to accelerate more revenue while making them more agile and scalable than their competitors.”
Disaggregated networking solutions by IP Infusion enable network operators to build novel services and to speed up new income streams. Its verified operational network system, together with the choice of best-of-breed hardware, would offer a variety of scenarios for networking infrastructure setups. According to IP Infusion, their solution allows network operators to move smoothly to an end-to-end, disaggregated networking solution that provides less cost of ownership with improved support services.
“We are pleased to work with Diggio and IP Infusion on this disaggregated networking solution,” said Heimdall Siao, President, Edgecore Networks. “Our best-in-class peering router design coupled with IP Infusion’s OcNOS allowed Diggio to expand its network capacity seamlessly and take advantage of the benefits of open networking, including technology choice and lower total cost of ownership. Edgecore Networks provide open networking solutions for a wide range of use cases including optical, data center, service provider, and enterprise networks.”
