SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Juniper Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: JNPR) today announced that Distributel, a Canadian provider of competitive telecommunications services, has deployed Juniper Networks E- and M-series routing platforms to upgrade its network in preparation for the launch of a new xDSL-based voice over IP (VoIP) service. By providing voice-specific quality of service (QoS) policies and industry-leading reliability and performance, the Juniper Networks solution will enable Distributel to assure the quality of its new VoIP service.

"When we began planning to deploy a new VoIP offering, it was clear that our routing infrastructure needed to be upgraded to ensure delivery of a reliable voice service offering," said Chris Kawchuk, director data telecommunications, Distributel. "We selected Juniper Networks E- and M-series because they are proven to support advanced services like VoIP, so we can be confident our business and residential customers will experience a completely reliable VoIP service, with quality indistinguishable from that of traditional voice services."

Distributel has deployed the Juniper Networks M-series Multiservice Routers in the core of the network, and is using the E-series Broadband Services Routers for xDSL aggregation. The combined edge portfolio uniquely combines best-in-class IP/MPLS capabilities with unmatched reliability, performance, and service flexibility.

The M-series enables providers to consolidate multiple networks onto a single IP/MPLS infrastructure, while simultaneously generating new revenues with leading-edge services like VoIP.

The E-series Broadband Services Router provides scalable capacity for tens of thousands of users and delivers advanced per-subscriber QoS capabilities, making it the ideal platform for delivering multi-media broadband services such as VoIP, Video on Demand and IPTV to a large number of residential customers.

"As a real-time service, VoIP is different from traditional IP services because its success depends first and foremost on quality and reliability," said Tim Lambie, vice president, Americas International, Juniper Networks. "Distributel is one of Canada's most innovative service providers, and we're pleased that Distributel chose the E- and M-series to secure and assure their network as they plan to introduce new services such as VoIP."
