Malaysian Service Provider Selects Juniper for VPLS

TIME dotCom Berhad, a Malaysian communications solutions provider, has deployed Juniper Networks M-series multi-service edge routing platforms to support its new value-added Virtual Private LAN Service (VPLS). TIME dotCom has deployed the M-series in its Metro Back Bone Network (MBBN) project, creating Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) based on Multi Protocol Label Switching (MPLS). It is the first Internet service provider in Malaysia to offer a complete range of MPLS-based VPN services, including layer 2 VPN, layer 3 VPN and VPLS (multipoint-to-multipoint) services. Financial terms were not disclosed.

VPLS combines the advantages of multipoint-to-multipoint Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) found in layer 3 VPNs with the ease-of-use inherent in layer 2 VPNs. Using VPLS, users can seamlessly connect disparate sites in a Wide Area Network (WAN) as if the sites were located on a Local Area Network (LAN).
