One of the world’s largest internet exchanges has deployed IP Infusion’s network operating system to help migration to 100Gbps.
London Internet Exchange (LINX) said it would be used on
LON2, its secondary London platform. LINX connects over 820
networks in more than 75 countries.
"We are moving forward with the OcNOS network operating system
for our disaggregated platform to allow LINX to deliver the
latest technologies of OcNOS from IP Infusion and open network
switches from Edgecore Networks," said Richard Petrie, CTO of
LON2 is ready for 100G so that it can deliver reduced total
cost of ownership.
Migrations to LON2 are expected to be completed in June. OcNOS
now supports a highly scalable 100G inter-connection fabric for
connecting distributed locations.
"The OcNOS and Edgecore switch solution helped LINX to migrate
its LON2 network and provided a key validation of the
disaggregated model for mission-critical applications," said
Atsushi Ogata, CEO and president of IP Infusion.
"This validated solution can be adopted by other internet
exchange providers who are looking to upgrade their existing
networks as well as for data centre interconnect use cases to
adopt acceleration of disaggregated networks."
Edgecore Networks CEO George Tchaparian said: "Edgecore
Networks continues to be a dedicated partner with LINX as it
deploys its new open disaggregated networking solution."
