Infusion, a provider of intelligent network software for enhanced IP services,
announced expanded operations in Korea to address critical telecom networking
requirements for the transition to next-generation mobile, Carrier Ethernet,
and cloud networking services.
expansion includes the appointment of Seongyoon Jo as head of Korean
operations. IP Infusion is introducing its leading IPv4-to-IPv6 transition
technology in Korea to enable telecom equipment and service providers to accelerate
the transition to Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) while leveraging existing
investments in Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4) infrastructures.
IP Infusion brings its sensor-based networking solutions to take advantage of
the growing smart energy networking capabilities in Korea.
forces, such as the introduction of popular consumer devices including
smartphones and tablet computers, are fostering a wider deployment of IPv6.
With the supply of IPv4 addresses completely exhausted as of mid-April 2011 in
the Asia Pacific region, these new devices are assigned IPv6 addresses.
carriers throughout Asia Pacific build out their IPv6 cores, there is an increasing need to support both IPv4 and IPv6 devices on the
same infrastructure. IP Infusion’s Rapid Deployment forwards IPv6
traffic through IPv4 networks and vice versa, and is based on the 6rd (IPv6
rapid deployment) and 4rd specifications published as a Request for Comments
(RFC) by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF).
deploying products built on IP Infusion’s embedded network communication
software, Korean service providers can deploy state-of-the-art network
technology to address the growing network capacity crunch, support the
transition from IPv4-to-IPv6 and develop new revenue-generating services.
networks transition to IPv6, legacy support for IPv4 is crucial, and our
innovative IP Infusion Rapid Deployment solution accelerates the transition for
Korean network providers,” said Koichi Narasaki, president and CEO of IP
than 30 Korean networking equipment vendors use our routing and switching
solutions to deliver high-quality routing and switching core network and access
solutions. As the telecom infrastructure and advanced Internet environments in
Korea continue to grow, we remain committed to helping our customers bring
products to market faster, and to differentiate them from competitors with
reduced cost,” Narasaki added.
meters are a critical component of the global drive to minimize energy
consumption, and IP Infusion has core technology to serve as the platform for
smart energy networking. With the introduction of its smart energy network
technologies in Korea, IP Infusion will optimize data center energy consumption
by enabling machine-to-machine communication for sensor networks and metering.
technologies will support IPv6 and will be compliant with IETF (Internet
Engineering Task Force) 6LoWPAN (IPv6 over Low Power Wireless Personal Area
Networks), which enables IPv6 technologies to operate on wireless sensor
latest expansion extends our leadership in market segments across Korea,” said
Seongyoon Jo, managing director, IP Infusion Korea Co. Moving forward, we will
deliver sensor network solutions to support smart energy initiatives and
support the smooth transition from IPv4 to IPv6 by providing our customers with
IPv4 over IPv6 tunneling, IPv6 over IPv4 tunneling, and IPv4-to-IPv6
