XH Platforms

Reliable SDN Platforms

XipLink offers a carefully curated but comprehensive range of networking platforms that address scalability requirements demanded by modern software defined networking applications.

The platforms are uniquely targeted at the wireless service provider environment to provide highly scalable options that can be used to deploy software defined networking functionality at the edge, the network core, or the cloud edge.

These platforms can be deployed as turn-key XipLink appliances, or can also be deployed as a universal Customer Premises Equipment (uCPE), to provide cloud edge services and third-party Virtualized Network Functions (VNF).

Virtualized Appliances

The XipOS virtualized appliances provide advanced Wireless Link Optimization capabilities as well as core platform management capabilities.

The XipOS Virtual (XV) software image is pre-installed on every XipLink Hardware (XH) platform prior to shipping. This allows the required session and aggregate bandwidth to be licensed remotely by applying a license code in the user interface.

For more information on the features and functions of the XipOS software, please refer to the XipLink Software Datasheet.
