Open X, a network operator situated in So Paulo, Brazil, has chosen IP Infusion’s disaggregated solution based on the OcNOS network operating system and Edgecore Networks hardware to extend its 100G backbone infrastructure.
Open X required 100G high-density solutions, IP transit delivery, and network connectivity. Edgecore AS7712-32X, AS7726-32X, and AS7816-64X switches are used to run the OcNOS solution.
As a consequence, during the first three weeks of the pandemic, which began in March 2020, Open X was able to expand its traffic bandwidth by 100 percent and deliver exponential capacity expansion of reliable services to all of their clients.
IP Infusion’s carrier-grade disaggregated networking technologies would enable network operators to develop new income streams and offer innovative services. It supports a wide range of networking use cases thanks to its verified network operating system and best-of-breed hardware. Network operators may effortlessly move to an end-to-end disaggregated networking solution with lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) thanks to IP Infusion’s enhanced support services.
“The disaggregation between software and hardware is the future of networks. With this new way to deploying our network environment we have the right to choose our software and hardware options instead of settling with vendor lock. That is, as the backbones evolve, we can choose the best software that meets our demands over time through the full support of IP Infusion and its OcNOS network operating system,” said Renato Ornelas, President, Open X. “We are totally satisfied with the high-quality software development provided by IP Infusion, which met the unique needs of Open X. Plus, Open Globe, our service integrator, provided crucial support starting from fully support at the Proof-of-Concept stage to having the agility in the solution delivery time.”

“Open X was able to expand its network capacity seamlessly and to take advantage of the benefits of open networking, including technology choices and lower total cost of ownership,” said Atsushi Ogata, President and CEO of IP Infusion. “With the IP Infusion and Edgecore solution, they were able to be agile and scalable during the start of the pandemic when bandwidth requirements skyrocketed.”
“We are pleased to work with Open X, Open Globe and IP Infusion to help deliver outstanding results for Open X customers,” said Heimdall Siao, President, Edgecore Networks. “Edgecore’s 100G open switches combined with IP Infusion’s OcNOS provides the best-in-class disaggregated networking solution. We will continue providing open networking solutions for a wide range of use cases, including optical, data center, service provider, and enterprise networks.”
OcNOS is a full-featured modular extendable network OS for white box open networking solutions, including sophisticated switching and routing features such as MPLS (Multiprotocol Label Switching), PTP (Precision Timing Protocol), and APIs/protocols for SDN (Software Defined Networking). OcNOS comes with support for hybrid, centralized, and dispersed networks, as well as a scalable, modular high-performance network and a “reliable” data plane based on merchant silicon.
