Juniper Contributes to Internet2

Juniper Networks will make a $2.5 million cash donation to Internet2 in support of the development of a new, nationwide 100 Gbps network serving U.S. community institutions.

Internet2, with partners National LambdaRail, Northern Tier Network Consortium and Indiana University were recently awarded a federal stimulus grant from the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) to create a nationwide high-capacity network that will enable advanced networking features for more than 200,000 essential community anchor institutions.

Juniper noted that it has been an Internet2 corporate partner and a principal provider of IP networking equipment to Internet2's national backbone since 2002.

As part of the U.S. UCAN infrastructure, Internet2 will deploy Juniper Networks MX Series 3D Universal Edge Routers, T Series Routers and supporting services.
