Reliance Globalcom Upgrades Metros with Juniper MX-Series

Reliance Globalcom is upgrading its metro networks in the U.S. with Juniper's MX-series Ethernet Services Routers and M120 Multiservice Edge Routers to support 10 GbE services. Specifically, Reliance Globalcom is deploying the Juniper Networks MX-series Ethernet Services Routers with its Managed Metro Ethernet service to seamlessly link multiple enterprise LANs within a single metro over Ethernet-based metropolitan fiber networks. The MX-series delivers up to 960 Gbps of switching and routing capacity to Reliance Globalcom's network. Financial terms were not disclosed.

The upgrade extends MPLS and Virtual Private LAN Service (VPLS) to the network edge, improving network performance and ensuring scalability to address forthcoming demands for additional capacity.

Reliance Globalcom has been using Juniper gear as a key part of its core network in all international PoPs. The new Juniper equipment will be integrated into the existing Juniper-based global Ethernet VPLS platform. The network is capable of scaling to support VoIP, high-definition video conferencing, backup and recovery, electronic trading and other multi-media business applications. The new network also ensures carrier-class service reliability, which is essential to enterprise and financial services customers.
