By Rajani Baburajan, TMCnet Contributor
The new routing capacity is expected to address the increasing demands from communications provider clients for growing bandwidth requirements. It will also meet subscriber expectations of new and emerging mobile, cloud computing and enterprise network applications, while improving the total economic efficiency of the network.
“Cloud and mobile computing are driving ever-higher demands on the network, and the MX Series is the industry's only edge routing platform that can scale with these new requirements while delivering lower total operating expenses,” said Stefan Dyckerhoff (News - Alert), executive vice president and general manager for the platform systems division at Juniper Networks, in a statement.
“Juniper's edge routing solutions have proven to be the most efficient across multiple metrics, including power, cooling, density, reliability and scalability,” Dyckerhoff added.
Leveraging the increased capacity of 3.8 terabits per second on Juniper Networks MX 3D Universal Edge Routers, communications provider, content delivery and enterprise customers can scale their networks while future-proofing the network edge to accommodate future demands.
“As a leading communications provider, Verizon has to build and maintain a robust and flexible infrastructure that delivers the reliability and cost effectiveness our customers require,” said Ihab Tarazi, vice president of global network planning at Verizon (News - Alert), in a statement.
Juniper's MX Series delivers the innovation and scale required for Verizon’s multitude of next- generation consumer and business services, while providing the ease of management and flexibility necessary to respond to changing traffic patterns and application demands, Tarazi added.
The capacity upgrade applies to all MX Series services, including Juniper's MobileNext, an open mobile core for next-generation wireless networks of communications providers.
Recently, Juniper Networks announced additions to the Juniper Networks vGW Virtual Gateway (News - Alert) solution for customers looking for a comprehensive virtualization security platform. The vGW 5.0 antivirus feature secures VMs against resident malware and other programs developed to protect in files and VMs in order to disrupt business or rob organizations of mission-critical information.
