Sri Lanka Telecom Deploys Juniper for MPLS

Sri Lanka Telecom (SLT) has further expanded its network with Juniper Networks M-series multiservice routing platforms and E-series Broadband Services Routers.

The M-series platforms enable SLT to offer advanced MPLS-based Virtual Private Network (VPN) services to business consumers in Sri Lanka. SLT has also upgraded its broadband infrastructure with Juniper's E-series to enable advanced multiservice broadband offerings.

SLT previously deployed Juniper Networks M-series to replace its legacy Internet gateway routers. The carrier now plans to introduce MPLS Layer 2 and Layer 3 VPNs, and VPLS, as well as integrated voice, video and data (triple play) broadband services. Financial terms were not disclosed.
