Belgacom Deploys Juniper's T4000 Core Routers

Belgacom, the incumbent operator in Belgium, has deployed Juniper Networks' T Series Core Routers to embrace the rapid adoption of new 'cloud' applications, the explosion in online video traffic, the introduction of IPv6 and the widespread use of smart-phones and tablets and prepare the core of its network for the next decade.

 The installation uses T4000 core routers. Financial terms were not disclosed.

"With the introduction of the Juniper Networks T4000 Series in the Belgacom peering infrastructure, we aim at the realization of a highly available, fully redundant infrastructure. The realized architecture consists of two fully geo-redundant peering infrastructures being able to carry the total traffic generated by Belgacom customers," stated Johan Luystermans, vice president, network engineering and member of management committee, Belgacom.
