Global Crossing Adds to Juniper Gear to Managed Network Services Portfolio

Global Crossing is adding Juniper Networks equipment to its Managed Network Services (MNS) portfolio. Specifically, Global Crossing MNS will now support Juniper Networks J Series Services Routers, M Series Multiservice Edge Routers, and SRX Series Services Gateways. Global Crossing also will enhance its MNS with Juniper Networks WXC Series Application Acceleration Platforms for WAN Optimization.


Global Crossing MNS provide and manage the entire array of networking solutions for enterprises. These include design and engineering; equipment procurement; implementation management; equipment installation; operations management; proactive monitoring, and life-cycle management. As part of the Global Crossing MNS offer, the company also supports and sources other industry-leading router manufacturers.


WAN Optimization is used in tandem with MNS to accelerate a wide range of applications that enterprises access and transmit between locations on a daily basis to conduct critical business. WAN Optimization uses a compression and caching technology to eliminate redundant transmissions; as a result it increases the apparent speed at which data is transmitted. It also improves the performance of many application-specific protocols, such as TCP, HTTP, MAPI and CIFS, by optimizing the protocol interaction between end-points and minimizing the natural slowing effects of latency on such applications.
