BT Selects Juniper Networks MX Series for Global 21CN Deployment

August 03, 2010

MX960 Universal Edge Router Chosen as Strategic Network Platform

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Aug 3, 2010 — Juniper Networks® (NYSE: JNPR) today announced that BT plc, one of the world's leading providers of communication solutions and services, has chosen Juniper Networks MX Series Universal Edge Routers as a strategic Edge platform to support 21CN service deployment outside the UK.

"We chose Juniper's MX Series for the unprecedented scalability, performance and reliability it can deliver across the network as we introduce the final phases of our 21st century network," said George Nazi, president, 21CN Global Networks & Infrastructure, BT. "This will help enable us to serve customers and market sectors where throughput, reliability and resilience in the network infrastructure are non-negotiable. Juniper's vision focuses on the new network philosophy, which aligns perfectly with BT's objectives for 21CN, so this latest collaboration is a perfect fit."

To be deployed in BT's global core network to provide large scale Ethernet and high-speed MPLS VPN Services, the MX Series will also provide support for applications such as intranet and extranet multicast VPN for customers around the world. In addition, the MX960 will be used in the first of BT's edge network deployments, created specifically for the high-speed requirements of its global financial services customers. The MX960 will also be used in the U.K. as BT's major Internet Peering platform.

Powered by Junos® OS, the MX Series provides a consistent operating environment that streamlines network operations and improves the availability, performance, and security of all types of services supported at the Universal Edge. The MX960 Universal Edge Router is a high density Layer 2 and Layer 3 Ethernet platform designed for deployment in a number of enterprise and service provider Ethernet scenarios. The MX Series 3D Universal Edge Routers recently received MEF 9/14 certification, surpassing the requirements of carrier-grade Ethernet switches as defined by the Metro Ethernet Forum, making Juniper Networks routers the platforms of choice for service providers seeking 3D scaling in the Universal Edge.

"Service providers must balance the drive for greater bandwidth, scale and performance against the need to contain costs and complexity in the network," said Gert-Jan Schenk, senior vice president EMEA, Juniper Networks. "BT is investing in Junos at the heart of its network strategy, to achieve better performance at a lower total cost of ownership. This is a great example of the advancement of the economics of networking."
