Korea's Gmarket Deploys Juniper's MX960 Ethernet Services Routers.

Korea's Gmarket, one of the world's largest consumer e-commerce websites, is deploying Juniper Networks' MX960 Ethernet Services Routers.

The MX-series routers boost Gmarket's network capacity and manageability by consolidating multiple gigabit Ethernet switching solutions into an easily-managed topology that leverages Juniper's JUNOS software, Juniper's single-source code network operating system. The MX960's Access Control List (ACL) capabilities also fortify Gmarket's network security. In addition, Gmarket deployed Juniper Integrated Security Gateways (ISG) -- purpose-built, high-performance firewall and VPN gateway -- to secure against network threats. Financial terms were not disclosed.

This upgrade follows Gmarket's previous deployment of Juniper's NetScreen-5400 firewalls.
