SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Juniper Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq:JNPR - News) today announced that NTT Communications (NTT Com), the global service provider and subsidiary of the NTT Group, has deployed Juniper Networks T-series platform in its Global IP Network. The NTT/VERIO Global IP Network is a backbone network covering Asia, Japan, North America, and Europe. This most recent deployment follows a May 2002 Juniper Networks and NTT Com announcement of a global agreement that established Juniper Networks as the equipment supplier of Internet Protocol (IP) infrastructure and services to support the build-out of NTT Com's high-performance IP network. With state-of-the-art throughput performance recently validated by BTExact, the T-series platform enables NTT Com to scale the network to meet traffic demands and deploy new services, while also reducing operational expenses and minimizing capital investment. The new deployment leverages the industry-leading JUNOS IP/MPLS service capabilities and enables NTT Com to guarantee service levels for offerings such as:

  • Global IP Network Transit Service -- a key requirement for real-time applications enabling direct connection to global tier one IP backbone for faster Internet access, while also minimizing distance delays on a global scale;

  • Housing (Co-location) Connectivity Service -- a high-quality, low-price Global IP Network connection for data center customers connecting to the Internet with rich bandwidth menus to meet a variety of customer requirements;

  • Smart Content Delivery -- fast and efficient content distribution worldwide through multiple cache servers located on the NTT/VERIO Global IP Network;

  • Global IP Security Gateway -- fast and high-quality global IP-VPN service based on NTT/VERIO Global IP Network;

  • IPv6 Gateway Service -- a native service that provides transit to a global IPv6 network by directly connecting to a NTT/VERIO global IPv6 backbone.

Also critical to guaranteeing services levels is a highly secure network. With increased cyber-attacks, service providers such as NTT Com are focusing more closely on infrastructure security design. Juniper Networks M- and T-series platforms provide NTT Com with comprehensive security measures such high performance filtering, rate limiting, deep packet inspections, DOS containment solutions, and various logging and tracking tools. "Our NTT/VERIO Global IP Network is a tier one IP backbone network that covers the USA to Europe and Asia Pacific regions. This extensive, high-capacity network offers 13 Gbps bandwidth between Japan and the USA and 5 Gbps in Asia, catering to increasing customer demand for bandwidth. Juniper Networks M- and T-series routing platforms support this large-scale, high-performance core network," said Takatoshi Okayama, director of IP Engineering, Global IP Network Group, Global Services Business Division, NTT Communications. "After our T-series deployment in the USA, the advanced MPLS traffic engineering, high performance, stability, and investment protection led to our decision to deploy T-640 platforms in our recently completed facility in Tokyo. Juniper Networks T-series provided the robust, flexible network required because NTT Com's rich capacity Ring Network is laid across the Pacific Ocean. We are convinced that customers will be satisfied with our network services." NTT Communications Corp. Juniper Networks Inc.
