EION Open IP Environment FPI is a module that acts as the access point for all Open IP Environment protocols and applications that interact with a forwarding engine.



CSP Highlights and Literature

EION Open IP Environment FPI module demonstrates the following key:

  • Defines application programming interfaces (APIs) for interaction with IPv4, Differentiated Services QoS, U-RTM, M-RTM, VRRP, IS-IS, PPP, and COPS-PR
  • Supports interaction with Open IP Environment Common Control Plane and Common Management Plane for configuration of software and hardware
  • Enables porting to any third-party platform that provides packet capture and output facilities as well as input handlers and output drivers for Ethernet cards


CSP Technical Specifications

Following FPI libraries are provided:
  • FPI Unicast Library
  • FPI Multicast Library
  • FPI Differentiated Services (DiffServ) Library
  • FPI Point to Point Protocol (PPP) Library
Modules that the forwarding engine interacts with through the FPI are:
  • Unicast Routing Table Manager (U-RTM)
  • Multicast Routing Table Manager (M-RTM)
  • Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (VRRP)
  • Intermediate System to Intermediate System (IS-IS) protocol
  • Slow path part of the IPv4 package in the Common Control Plane
  • Common Open Policy Service Provisioning (COPS-PR)
