SAN JOSE, Calif. -- IP Infusion, An ACCESS Company and the provider of the intelligent networking software platform ZebOS® for enhanced IP and Ethernet services, today announced the successful completion of the Fall 2007 Ethernet OAM testing by Isocore in Reston, VA. Major router and switch vendors and test equipment suppliers participated in the testing, which focused primarily on the features aimed at helping service providers achieve more control of network resources while deploying triple play services.

“IP Infusion’s participation in Isocore’s leading-edge code testing is indicative of its commitment to quality software releases in the future,” said Dr. Bijan Jabbari, President of Isocore. “We are delighted to see that IP Infusion takes part in this unique industry gathering with new capabilities to help propel the next generation networking.”

As befits the ascent of Ethernet and MPLS in provider networks, the Ethernet OAM testing included the evaluation of connectivity fault management (IEEE 802.1ag) and Ethernet EFM (802.3ah) across a carrier Ethernet network. The test network was built using a common MPLS core, thereby demonstrating MPLS as a universal packet technology. The testing further evaluated the interoperability of implementations supporting multi-segment Pseudo-wires (MS-PW) that extend beyond one packet-switched network or domain, thereby demonstrating the inter-carrier capabilities of the network during the test.

“We are very pleased to have successfully tested Ethernet OAM functionality in the ZebOS® platform alongside many other leading network equipment manufacturers,” said Koichi Narasaki, president and CEO, IP Infusion and executive officer of ACCESS CO., LTD.
