UK-based Internet Service Provider deploys OcNOS® Aggregation Router and Cell Site Router to support national rollout into key cities
SANTA CLARA, Calif., June 14, 2023 – IP Infusion, the market leader in carrier-grade network operating systems, announced today that Telcom, a UK-based internet services provider, has chosen an open networking strategy to disaggregate and upgrade its network infrastructure. This network upgrade is to facilitate their national rollout to key cities in the UK, including Manchester, Leeds, Liverpool, and Birmingham. Networking company and IP Infusion partner and integrator Nomios assisted in logistics for the deployment.
Telcom will be using a combination of IP Infusion OcNOS® software with white-box hardware from Edgecore and UfiSpace to upgrade and interoperate with its existing Cisco, Nokia and Juniper equipment for Aggregation Router and Cell Site Router use cases. This disaggregation strategy provides an incremental upgrade path to deliver modern networking features, as well as providing rapid return on investment by supporting a plurality of hardware vendors.
Telcom is investing millions to build a new, hyperfast, full-fiber network in key regions across the UK, providing the country’s fastest and most robust Internet connectivity solution. This ensures that local businesses, government, health, and education sectors have access to state-of-the-art digital infrastructure capable of meeting their data connectivity and communication needs for today and the foreseeable future.
The Telcom network has hyperfast speeds of up to 10Gbps for each individual business, delivered through a dedicated leased line, with 99.99% uptime guaranteed through its real-time monitoring system.
Nomios has played a crucial role in supporting Telcom, providing extensive pre-sales and sales support, technical consultation, and strategic planning for future network expansions on behalf of IP Infusion, empowering Telcom to optimize its network infrastructure to meet the increasing demands for city metro broadband.
“Utilizing IP Infusion OcNOS has enabled us to push a rich and diverse feature set out to the edge of the network, giving us greater flexibility and variety of services available to our customers,” said Ben White, Principal Network Architect for Telcom. “We find we can gain the same features and functionality as organizations using traditional vendors, but with more diversity on equipment choice and a more nimble vendor able to react according to market trends quicker, all at a better price point.”
“Telcom’s decision to choose IP Infusion really speaks to the maturity and value proposition of open networking in today’s marketplace,” said Atsushi Ogata, President and CEO of IP Infusion. “With Internet access fast becoming a modern necessity — as much as any other utility — IP Infusion continues to be a top-tier choice for leading service providers looking for reliability and performance.”
