IP Infusion's advanced control plane software enables equipment vendors, service providers, and telecommunications and enterprise companies to rapidly build and provision a broad range of value-added IP services around our core routing and switching software technology.

IP Infusion is empowering communications equipment manufacturers and service providers to rapidly deliver both next generation IP applications, by providing a set of routing and switching solutions that integrate with embedded operating systems and network processors, and the traffic engineering and quality of service features that are required. These new communications applications include voice over IP (VoIP), virtual private networking (VPN), storage area networking (SAN), content delivery and management, wireless and mobile networking, security, performance and conformance testers, photonic networking, home networking, and new enterprise network solutions.
IP Infusion's technology had its beginnings in 1995 when the company's co-founder and CTO Kunihiro Ishiguro was working at a large Japanese ISP (a joint venture between Marubeni and British Telecom) that was building Japan's Internet backbone using standard high-speed routers. During this time, Ishiguro decided to develop a platform-independent BGP route reflector that could easily be ported to multiple platforms.
In 1996, Ishiguro joined co-founder and Vice President Yoshinari Yoshikawa at Digital Magic Labs in Japan with the intention of developing platform-independent software for OSPF, BGP, and RIP for both IPv4 and IPv6. After building a large community of users of the software, Ishiguro and Yoshikawa recognized the tremendous potential this technology had for use in the market and decided to create a company. With help from initial investments from Bill Tai and T. Peter Thomas of IVP, as well as Michio Fujimura of IT-Farm, Yoshikawa and Ishiguro founded IP Infusion as a US company in 1999, with headquarters in Silicon Valley.
