Kinetix Networks taps IP Infusion for its disaggregated network build

Oct. 23, 2023
Australian ISP deploys OcNOS to ensure an incremental network upgrade strategy.

Kinetix Networks has implemented IP Infusion OcNOS® software and hardware from UfiSpace to upgrade and service its network.

The Australian provider is leveraging OcNOS to connect Layer 2 networking partners directly. OcNOS also serves as an underlay platform to provide the upstream connection to Australia’s National Broadband Network (NBN).

Kinetix Networks is a direct Retail Service Provider (RSP) of nbn and provides a mix of consumer, business and wholesale services.

The cost and availability of products allowed Kinetix to deploy redundancy to mitigate any potential service interruptions. UfiSpace hardware and OcNOS SP-MPLS provide 800 Gbps and 300 Gbps capacity across Kinetix’s major metro and regional centers.

“OcNOS has been instrumental in providing a sound upgrade strategy that lets us procure equipment as needed, as opposed to entire chassis replacement,” said James Howell, CEO of Kinetix Networks. “Network disaggregation allowed us freedom of choice for hardware vendors, which was important for equipment availability and lead times.”
