Columbus Networks, which operates a number of undersea cables across the Caribbean, has upgraded its network with the Juniper Networks T4000 Core Routers to meet rapidly expanding bandwidth requirements for hosted services and multimedia applications, including mobile, video, cloud and research. The upgrade extends and enhances the existing Juniper Networks T1600 core routing infrastructure in the network. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Columbus Networks, with its joint venture partner CWC Wholesale Solutions, operates more than 26,000 miles of subsea fiber.
"Our priority is to exceed customer expectations as our network continues to experience continuous growth. As we evolve the Columbus IP network and realize the capabilities of the T4000, Juniper has been a critical technology partner enabling us to reduce our operational expenditures while also increasing our performance, reliability and efficiency," stated Paolo Autore, engineering manager, Columbus Networks.
