Juniper Cites Routing Wins at Carphone Warehouse, nLayer, and Taiwan's HiNet

Juniper Networks announced a series of high-profile deployments for its core and edge routing platforms, including wins with
Carphone Warehouse, nLayer Communications, and HiNet, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Chunghwa Telecom.

HiNet, which is a leading ISP in Taiwan, has expanded the capacity of its GigaPOPs with multiple Juniper T640 core routers. HiNet's GigaPOPs are ultra-high performance points of presence supporting advanced IP traffic across the entire HiNet network.

Carphone Warehouse Networks (CPWN), one of the largest independent service providers in the U.K., has deployed Juniper Networks MX960 Ethernet Services Routers in its nationwide Next-Generation Network. The NGN project, which is based entirely on advanced IP and Ethernet technologies, is now live and supporting over 1 million end-users. Carphone Warehouse network currently extends to over 70% of UK households with scope for further expansion in the future. The company is now integrating the 1.5 million broadband users of recently-acquired AOL UK. A year of integration onto the NGN lies ahead and the business is on track to achieve a group target of 3.5m broadband customers by March 2010.

nLayer Communications, a leading provider of high-performance Internet connectivity and wholesale bandwidth solutions, has deployed the MX960 Ethernet Services Router (ESR) in key facilities across its global IP network. The MX960s will support a range of high-capacity wholesale IP transit and MPLS transport services, supporting nLayer's media streaming and content delivery customers. nLayer owns and operates its own diverse global OC-192 infrastructure, and maintains over 600 Gbps of edge capacity to other Internet networks. Its customers include high-profile web properties, content delivery networks, hosting and dedicated access providers.

The Juniper Networks MX960 ESR delivers up to 960 Gbps of switching and routing capacity and is optimized for emerging Ethernet network architectures and services. The MX960 leverages JUNOS software and a purpose-built hardware platform.

Juniper noted that in its first year, the MX960 has shipped to well over 100 customers.http://www.juniper.net
