Despite their concerns, this service provider ordered a complete turnkey open network solution from Champion ONE under a buy-and-try program. The Champion ONE solution featured 10G Open Network Switches with 100G uplinks, powered by a network operating system from IP Infusion. In addition to sufficient capacity, this solution provided the full OSPF, BFD, and MPLS support that the service provider required.
In order to fully understand their new solution, the service provider performed extensive testing in their lab to ensure interoperability. After three full months of this testing, the solution was moved to the production network for further load testing.
Champion ONE’s solution was fully up to the task, delivering error-free service and seamless compatibility in both lab and live environments. As a result, the service provider has added 1.6 TB/s of total switching capacity to their network. Furthermore, this solution is easily replicable, so the service provider will be able to replace future EOL equipment with confidence as the need arises.
