Japan's NICT Deploys Juniper Core Virtualization Solution

Japan's National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NICT) has enabled core routing virtualization across its new-generation ultra high-speed test bed research network using JGN2plus, Juniper's T1600 core routing platform and JCS 1200 control system. Juniper Networks provided NICT with the technology to build virtualized core routers, which can increase the flexibility, efficiency and performance of its network.

National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NICT) is the sole national research institution in Japan in the information and communications field. NICT is striving to advance the fields, by promoting its own R&D centers (especially, "ICT for Safety and Security," "New Generation Networks" and "Universal Communications" fields) and by cooperating with supporting outside parties. NICT has been operating JGN2plus, its super high-speed and high performance test-bed network, since April 2008.

Juniper's T1600 multi-terabit core router enables service providers to increase network capacity in line with escalating service demands without adding incremental systems to the network so that they can speed new service deployment, deliver a superior end-user experience and maximize their existing T-series investments.
The JCS 1200 is an innovative system for scaling the control plane of routers and allowing the clean partitioning of services or network elements.
