SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Juniper Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq: JNPR), a leading provider of trusted infrastructures for the New Public Network, today announced that the Next Generation Internet Exchange (IX) Consortium has deployed Juniper Networks M-series Routers as its core network infrastructure. The compact Juniper Networks M10 and M20 routers provide Next Generation IX with a highly reliable, scalable and cost-efficient network for deploying Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) enabled Internet Protocol (IP) services without compromising performance. Next Generation IX Consortium was formed in Japan to research and implement the Next Generation Internet Exchange (IX). The Consortium is made up of more than 70 organizations, and was founded by the Japanese Ministry of Public Management, Home Affairs, Posts and Telecommunications as part of 2001's research and development projects. By using Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) technology in the INTER-DOMAIN environment, Next Generation IX can process high-speed and large-volume traffic exchange between ISPs efficiently and securely. 'We are using MPLS technology to build an Internet exchange network capable of evolving to meet tomorrow's network requirements,' said Hiroshi Esaki, professor at the Graduate School of Information Sciences and Technology at Tokyo University. 'As a result of an extensive evaluation, the Next Generation IX Consortium selected Juniper Networks M-series routers because of its uncompromised performance, proven MPLS solutions, and interoperability within our existing network infrastructure.'
