IP Infusion scales customer base, licensing and revenue in the first half of 2023

Sept. 5, 2023
Vigorous global sales and licensing buoyed the software vendor’s sales.

IP Infusion reported 87% year-over-year revenue growth in the first half of 2023 due to strong global sales and licensing. In the first six months 2023, IP Infusion signed up 51 new customers and added 14 new channel partners. The OcNOS Aggregation Router, Data Center, and Cell Site Router use cases lead sales, with switch and router port shipments for all OcNOS licenses sold at more than 1.5 million ports.

During the year's first half, IP Infusion secured wins with various service provider customers, including Amplex Internet, Broadstar, DojoNetworksMetaLINK TechnologiesMultinetNetplusPine NetworksTelcom, and Vyve Broadband.

The company said that these new customer wins and the 163 repeat orders from existing customers in the first half of the year cement IP Infusion’s role as an appealing disaggregated alternative to legacy vendors, including Cisco, Juniper, and Arista.

Customers cite IP Infusion’s attributes, including its “super technology” and “flexibility at a lower price point than traditional solutions.” IP Infusion also announced this year that the company collaborated with NTT Corp. to develop Beluganos, a new network operating system to realize NTT’s IOWN concept. It is providing sales and support for NTT’s global markets.

“This continued growth over the first six months of 2023, succeeding record gains in 2022, further validates IP Infusion’s position as the open network software and solution leader for service providers and data centers,” said Atsushi Ogata, president and CEO of IP Infusion. “Our field-tested platform continues to build significant market share in this space through extensive use cases and successful deployments that spark innovation and lower total cost of ownership.”

Besides seeing customer and sales momentum, GigaOm designated IP Infusion a Leader, Outperformer and Platform player for its annual 2023 Network Operating System (NOS) Radar Reports.
