HK Broadband Network Upgrades with Juniper M Series

Hong Kong Broadband Network Limited (HKBN) has deployed Juniper Networks' M Series Multiservice Edge Routers to support continued expansion of its international network connectivity. Financial terms were not disclosed.

HKBN, a wholly-owned subsidiary of City Telecom (H.K.), offers residential broadband Internet access up to 1Gbps, telephony, IPTV, corporate and mobile data services with its self-built Metro Ethernet IP network.

HKBN already has more than 350,000 FTTX broadband customers in Hong Kong, giving it the second largest market share. It aims to extend its network coverage to 90 percent of Hong Kong households by the end of 2012. HKBN's core service is a market-leading symmetric 100Mbps unlimited broadband access for the residential market priced at US$34/month.

The Juniper Networks M Series Multiservice Edge Routers have been installed at HKBN's peering point for load-balancing and redundancy.
