London Internet Exchange Builds SuperCore with Juniper PTX


The London Internet Exchange (LINX) has deployed Juniper Networks' PTX Series Packet Transport Switch to create a new "SuperCore" network at the heart of one of the world's largest Internet Exchanges. The deployment, which went live in May, will be the second phase of a project announced by LINX in October 2011 to create a new network designed to meet current and future levels of customer demand for online activity.

Telindus serves as integrator for the project.

LINX’s 10 Points of Presence (PoPs) across London are connected by Juniper Networks MX Series 3D Universal Edge Routers, the first phase of LINX’s new network deployment which went live in late 2011. Both the PTX Series and MX Series run on Juniper’s Junos operating system.
LINX interconnects over 400 networks, including service providers and content owners from 50 countries, providing data, video and voice connectivity to hundreds of millions of customers using mobile and fixed connections. LINX’s infrastructure provides connectivity for high-profile events streamed online, including the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, The Euro 2012 soccer championships, The Wimbledon Championships, and The London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, in addition to everyday rich content upload and download demand.

  • In June, Verizon confirmed plans to deploy the Juniper Networks' PTX Series packet transport switches in major markets in the U.S. and Europe by the end of this year. Financial terms were not disclosed. The deployment marked the first major announced customer for the new packet transport platform. The companies cited an initial capacity of eight terabits per second for the high-density MPLS platform, which underpins an upgrade of the Verizon global IP backbone to 100G Ethernet, supports customer access speeds of 10G and above and enables growth for FiOS, wireless and cloud services.
