Interop presented an exciting opportunity for those in the technology and telecommunications space as it brought multiple players together in one location to provide informative presentation on new offerings, next-generation technologies and opportunities for the coming year.
TMCnet took advantage of the opportunity to speak with a number of key industry players at Interop this year, including IP Infusion (News - Alert). Shane Rigby, VP Global Sales, IP Infusion, had an opportunity to visit the TMCnet media booth for an interview captured in this video.
IP Infusion is one of a handful of pure software companies. The company produces software technologies for next generation companies to bring their technologies to market faster.
To make this happen, IP Infusion focuses on telcos first and then telcos get equipment from OEM, which IP Infusion will market to. Bandwidth and Internet are both expanding significantly; products from IP Infusion enable telcos and OEMs to add new technologies very quickly.
The development around WiMAX (News - Alert) and LTE is a huge benefit to IP Infusion. This company is very focused on IPv6 and is considered an industry leader in IPv6 and v4 technologies; as well as data center bridging; and virtualization. The company also recently announced a wide range of products to support data center functionality.
As for challenges in moving from IPv4 to IPv6, Rigby noted that address space in IPv4 will run out within the next 12 months or so. Rather than replace all equipment, IP Infusion is helping companies put software at various points to aid that migration. Software solution instead of ripping out hardware and replacing is an optimal solution for a number of companies.
"Telcos really know that software delivers services," said Rigby. "So, we're uniquely positioned I think to work with the telcos and equipment providers. And, now with IPv6 being so ubiquitous in the market, we're positioned extremely well."
