Tom Hollingsworth takes a look at the recent announcements from Barefoot Networks around support for SONiC, new platforms from IP Infusion, and support for the growing 5G mobile market.
Never heard of IP Infusion? You’re not alone. The company was founded by the team behind GNU Zebra, and has commercialized it under ZebOS since 1999. They’ve recently moved from purely an OEM company into providing white box switch and virtualized network operating systems. It’s an interesting move into some of the more exciting areas in enterprise IT.
