SAN JOSE, Calif. -- IP Infusion, a leading provider of intelligent network software for enhanced IP services platforms, announced today that GIGA STREAM has become the latest network equipment manufacturer to power its next generation platform with the ZebOS Advanced Routing Suite. GIGA STREAM delivers to mobile and fixed operators a single platform switch that integrates 3G, WLAN and high-performance IP packet transmission capabilities, therefore enabling seamless roaming for mobile subscribers.

By integrating ZebOS software into its Universal Navigation Switch (UNS) solution, GIGA STREAM is providing its customers with feature-rich and sophisticated IP routing and MPLS switching functionality that enables not only the delivery of new revenue-generating services but also a smooth migration from today’s TDM / ATM transport towards an all-IP environment.

GIGA STREAM’s UNS is a carrier-class solution for networks that provides for all necessary connectivity, network control and interworking between converged voice/data networks and GPRS/3G/WLAN wireless networks. GIGA STREAM uses a unique, high-capacity, high availability and low latency switch technology. The UNS incorporates various IP Infusion routing and switching protocol modules, including BGP-4+, OSFPv2 with Traffic Engineering, IS-IS with Traffic Engineering, RSVP-TE, and an MPLS Forwarder.

“IP Infusion’s ZebOS network software offerings have grown to become a premier solution for communications equipment vendors, driven by cutting-edge technology companies such as GIGA STREAM,” said Gary Hemminger, Vice President of Marketing of IP Infusion. “We are pleased that GIGA STREAM selected IP Infusion to supply IP routing and MPLS traffic engineering technology for its UNS platform, and look forward to its successful deployments in mobile and fixed operator networks.”

IP Infusion’s ZebOS Advanced Routing Suite (ARS) is a sophisticated, robust, and standards-based Layer 2 and Layer 3 carrier-class routing and switching software solution, supporting IPv4, IPv6, Multicast, and MPLS/Traffic Engineering protocols. It supports Linux, VxWorks, or other widely used operating systems along with industry leading network processors. Its modular, platform-independent architecture enables OEM/ODM customers to easily expand, adapt, or configure it according to their specific routing protocol needs, while reducing costs and development cycle and optimising time to market.

“IP Infusion enabled us to reduce the time-to-market for our UNS and enhance the delivery of value-added IP Services“, says Thomas Maul, Founder and CEO of GIGA STREAM. “The separation of forwarding and routing elements substantially changes the architecture of Next Generation Networks and reduces operational expenditures – a clear benefit for our customers.”
