SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Juniper Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq:JNPR - News) today announced that Speakeasy, Inc., the nation's largest independent broadband services company, has deployed Juniper Networks E- and M-series routing platforms to introduce a new, market leading Bonded T1 service and to support Speakeasy's entire portfolio of innovative broadband services with industry leading scalability, reliability and performance.

Speakeasy operates a private, national fiber optic network -- based on Juniper Networks routing platforms -- to provide high bandwidth, low latency connections with an unparalleled degree of security protection. Speakeasy's new Bonded T1 service enables business customers to combine multiple T1s and add or remove circuits as their bandwidth needs change. When small to mid-sized businesses use a T1 for data and voice/VoIP, they can quickly run out of bandwidth, and the Bonded T1 service provides a cost-effective and flexible alternative to add capacity without making the expensive leap to fractional DS3s.

"We are constantly talking to our customers, listening to their needs, and delivering new and innovative services to help them save money, grow their businesses, and improve employee productivity. Our new Bonded T1 service is yet another example of the innovation that demonstrates our commitment to developing cost-effective solutions for small and medium-sized businesses," said Bruce Chatterley, Speakeasy's president and CEO. "Speakeasy is building and delivering the most secure, fast and reliable private national network available, and the Juniper solution provides us with the network flexibility and performance we need."

Juniper Networks E- and M-series underpin all of Speakeasy's advanced data services, including the new Bonded T1 service, traditional T1 service, DSL, and OneLink dedicated DSL. Additionally, Speakeasy is using Juniper's E-series routers to support its high performance Voice Over IP (VoIP) service, and to aggregate traffic, apply Quality of Service policies and provide simple online customer management tools. The M-series are deployed in Speakeasy's central sites, providing the resiliency and performance to enable Speakeasy to support Service Level Agreements with five-nines (99.999 percent) availability.

The E- and M-series together deliver a comprehensive portfolio of advanced routing features that uniquely combine best-in-class IP/MPLS capabilities with unmatched reliability, performance, and scalability. Both platforms are deployed in the world's largest networks, and consistently support a wide range of advanced service offerings, including voice, video and data.

"Speakeasy is offering many truly innovative services across their network -- from their new Bonded T1 service to their unique broadband packages specifically tailored to small businesses," said Judy Beningson, vice president of product management, Infrastructure Products Group, Juniper Networks. "We're pleased that our routing solutions play such a key role in enabling Speakeasy to support these services with assured performance, reliability and security."
