Siemens to Supply Juniper Routers for Finnish Defense Forces

The Finnish Defense Forces have selected Siemens and Juniper Networks to deploy a next-generation IP/MPLS backbone network that will integrate the data transmission and communication systems for reconnaissance, surveillance and military command. Siemens Osakeyhtio will be responsible for the delivery of the Juniper Networks M-series routers, plus Redcell network and service configuration suite of products from Dorado Software and related maintenance. Financial terms were not disclosed.

With the new Redcell system, the Defense Forces will get an advanced network and service configuration management system that permits, among other things, secure VPN management of the MPLS network. Redcell also offers a strategic investment as it is designed for a multi-vendor environment and can be used for controlling other network components as well as the M-series. Similarly, the network management software will offer redundancy. http://www.siemens.com/communicationshttp://www.juniper.net
