WEBINAR: Validated MX204 Alternatives: IP Infusion OcNOS

IP Infusion network operating systems

WEBINAR: Validated MX204 Alternatives: IP Infusion OcNOS

We recently did a webinar on alternatives to Juniper Network’s MX204 platform. While the MX204 was a fully capable router it was End Of Life’d and then recently the EOL was revoked after approximately a year. During the period before the end of life revocation operators searched for various alternatives.

IP Infusion’s OcNOS rose as one of the prime contenders as a replacement after they announced support for newer silicon, Qumran2 from broadcom, allowing them to enter the market as a capable border and peering router.

We went through some of the supported platforms, support systems, and whitebox ecosystem in this webinar.

Networking CLI Rosetta Stone

Changing between network operating systems is one of the most challenging things for new engineers. Most people learned cisco cli due to their extensive training system or got on the job training for whatever their company runs.

We are hoping to make moving back and forth between network operating systems a little easier with some useful show and operational commands for Mikrotik, Juniper, Cisco, and IP Infusion. There are in detail usages of these commands on stubarea51.net.
