SKY Brasil to use IP Infusion’s OcNOS network operating system to
take advantage of the lower costs of disaggregated open network
technology

SANTA CLARA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–IP
Infusion
, a leading provider of intelligent network software for
telecom and data communications services, announced that SKY
Brasil
, a “Direct to Home” digital satellite service operator in
Brazil, has selected IP Infusion’s OcNOS™
network operating system in their 5G-ready fixed LTE services
disaggregated mobile backhaul transport solutions, a first for Latin
America.

Sky Brasil, the largest satellite TV operator in Brazil which serves
more than 5 million subscribers in the country and provides fixed
wireless LTE services to more than 314,000 households in the region. The
service requires support for multi-service transport, advance quality of
service with improved latency and zero packet lost. To address these
challenges and reduce overall TCO of backhaul infrastructures, SKY
Brasil selected IP Infusion’s OcNOS network operating system to deploy
its fixed LTE wireless services and to benefit from the economies of
disaggregated open network technology.

OcNOS is the industry’s first full-featured modular extensible network
OS for white box open networking solutions offering advanced
capabilities that include extensive switching and routing support
ranging from Layer2, Layer3 to MPLS (Multiprotocol Label Switching) and
APIs/protocols for SDN (Software Defined Networking). OcNOS features
hybrid, centralized or distributed network support; scalable, modular
high-performance network; and a robust data plane built on merchant
silicon.

“We adopted the IP Infusion disaggregated solution for our 5G mobile
backhaul transport network because OcNOS has the advanced MPLS and
segment routing technologies required to build a robust network,” said
Luis Otavio Marchezetti, engineering vice president at SKY Brasil. “With
this OcNOS solution, we will continue to maintain SKY’s position as the
region’s leader in technological innovation and service. By offering
fast, high-quality broadband service at an affordable price, we will be
opening up new growth opportunities in Brazil and throughout the region.”

“As consumer demands for bandwidth and multi-service traffic grow,
service providers need to quickly develop new use cases, launch and
monetize them to attract consumers by delivering an experience which is
unprecedented. Disaggregated networks offer best choices with
state-of-the-art technologies and lower-cost-per-bit allowing operators
economies at scale for improved service offerings,” said Atsushi Ogata,
CEO and president of IP Infusion. “Along with our solutions partners, IP
Infusion offers unparalleled open edge solution for backhaul, creating
great potentials of multi-service transport and pathway to 5G.”
