infranet

(1) An earlier name for an Internet that delivered quality of service (QoS) and enhanced reliability and security. Proposed by the Infranet Initiative Council (IIC) in 2004, which was spearheaded by Juniper Networks, IIC endorsed the use of MPLS as the QoS mechanism. In 2005, the IIC turned into the IPsphere Forum, which promotes the development of a commercial service oriented architecture (SOA) that competes in an unregulated Internet.
