IP Infusion Partners With Enea Software, Inc. to Deliver Assured IPTV Quality of Experience in L2-L3 Equipment

IP Infusion's ZebOS IP Protocol Framework Leverages Enea Accelerator™ Platform's High Availability Features for Industry-Leading IPTV Performance

SAN JOSE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 28, 2007 -- IP Infusion, a leader in intelligent software platforms for converged IP communications equipment, today announced a strategic alliance with Enea that combines the high-availability (HA) feature set of the Enea Accelerator™ Platform with ZebOS, IP Infusion's industry-leading Layer 2 and Layer 3 IP protocol suite. Working with the Enea Accelerator Platform, IP Infusion's protocols will deliver the highest resiliency available in the market today for Layer 2 and Layer 3 implementations. Enea and IP Infusion, together with Kontron and Tail-f, will demonstrate the new high-availability software at the Mountain View Alliance Communications Ecosystem Conference being held in San Diego from February 28 to March 1.

As markets transition to application-oriented connectivity and high-bandwidth experiences, carriers will need more robust Layer 2 and Layer 3 capabilities in order to deliver the availability, security, and quality of experience users will demand for applications such as IPTV. Under this agreement, Enea and IP Infusion will provide a complete software framework that has all the elements necessary for service providers to pursue those new markets with confidence.

"Carriers are rushing to offer new revenue-generating services such as IPTV. They will require a whole new level of resiliency, but they also want to maximize their investments in Layer 2 and Layer 3 infrastructure," said Linda Thompson, vice president of corporate alliances at Enea. "The Enea Accelerator Platform, together with IP Infusion's ZebOS protocols, allows service providers to deploy a single piece of equipment that upgrades the entire network to unprecedented service commitment levels for fast and successful service rollouts."

When combined with the Enea Accelerator Platform, ZebOS offers resilient Layer 2 and Layer 3 functionality that eliminates data loss in high-priority data streams, uses checkpointing to maintain the state of processes during switching, and employs non-disruptive failover to preserve the user experience, even under sub-par network conditions.

"Enea's Accelerator Platform provides the HA services that allow us to deliver five nines availability with our network and transport layer software," said Yoshinari Yoshikawa, vice president of business development at IP Infusion. "We look forward to working with Enea to enable a new level of network availability for the next generation of IP services."
