IP Infusion has announced that it is now shipping ZebOS Network Platform version 7.8 software. As noted in this PR Newswire story, the ZebOS 7.8 Network Platform has been developed to enable telecommunications equipment OEMs to offer state-of-the-art equipment to service providers so they can rapidly deploy the services needed to satisfy this demand.
“ZebOS 7.8 provides support for Generalized Multiprotocol Label Switching (GMPLS) for packet and Ethernet switching (GELS). With the new 7.8 release, ZebOS provides the foundation for MPLS-TP with features such as Operations and Maintenance (OAM) for carrier-grade resilience and reliability of converged packet transport networks supporting technologies such as Ethernet pseudo wires and Label Switching Paths (LSPs). The co-existence of ZebOS MPLS and GMPLS solutions on the same node enables equipment manufacturers to unify the control and management of multi-layer networks.
“The policy based routing (PBR) in ZebOS 7.8 enables customers to have finer policies to implement forwarding and routing that go beyond traditional routing. This provides OEMs with the capability to route traffic depending on business use case.”
