TeliaSonera Deploys Juniper's TX Matrix Plus Super Core

TeliaSonera International Carrier is the first network operator to deploy Juniper Networks' TX Matrix Plus, a multi-chassis core routing system that works with the Juniper Control System (JCS) 1200 to allow the virtualization of routing systems, networks and services. The Juniper TX Matrix Plus architecture enables service providers to create "super-nodes" of up to 25 Tbps. This enables up to 256 40GbE ports or 1,024 GbE ports in a single routing node.

TeliaSonera International Carrier said the new solutions, based on Junos software, help networks scale dynamically and rapidly, on-demand, and support more bandwidth, for more subscribers and a wide range of services.

"We considered a number of options open to us, our customers demand capacity. We've focused on a number of areas and TX Matrix Plus fully fits our need as a business and supports our mission to be one of the top three global IP carriers. This deployment is evidence that TeliaSonera International Carrier lives up to our ambition to be the IP knowledge leader, putting new technology into the hands of our customers", said Anna Mossberg, Vice President and Head of Product & Business Management, TeliaSonera International Carrier.

  • In February 2009, Juniper Networks introduced a number of enhancements for its T1600 core router, including the ability to integrate up to 16 routers into a 25 Tbps multi-chassis single node while adding physical virtualization capabilities. At the time, the company said it anticipated first commercial availability of the TX Matrix Plus in Q3 2009.
