NTT Communications Deploys Juniper T1600 Core Routers

NTT Communications (NTT Com) has deployed Juniper Networks' T1600 core routers to scale the capacity of its global IP network. Financial terms were not disclosed.

The companies said a key considerations for the T1600 selection included the non-disruptive upgrade path from the T640 to the multi-terabit capacity and energy efficiency advantages of the T1600.

NTT Com began its global IP network service in July 1997 with 45 Mbps bandwidth between Japan and the U.S. In 2000, NTT Com acquired a Tier-1 Internet service provider, Verio, and expanded the bandwidth between Japan and the U.S. to over 1 Gbps. NTT Com has been continuously upgrading its global Tier 1 IP backbone both in bandwidth to support end users' broadband Internet usage, and in direct connections to major ISPs in Asia, the U.S., Europe and the South West Pacific.
