Cox Selects Juniper for Converged Metro Ethernet Infrastructure

Cox Communications has selected Juniper Networks' MX-series Ethernet Services Routers as part of a multi-year project to expand the capacity and scale of its metro regional networks. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Cox is transitioning toward a converged network architecture hub design combining voice, video, and data traffic, and has selected the Juniper MX960 as the basis for this transformation. Specifically, the Juniper Networks MX960 Ethernet Services Router, which delivers up to 960 Gbps of switching and routing capacity, will be deployed in Cox's metro hubs and regional data centers (RDCs).

"Juniper Networks routers have been deployed in our metro and national backbone network for years, and have helped Cox consistently deliver superior performance, reliability and security for residential and business customers," said Matt Hayes, director of network engineering, Cox Communications.
