CHICAGO -- Juniper Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: JNPR) today announced that FASTWEB has selected the E320 Broadband Services Router to further expand its broadband network in response to the growing demand for Triple Play services from residential and business customers. As Italy’s second operator in fixed telephony at the forefront of broadband applications and services and world’s second largest IPTV operator*, Fastweb will utilize its advanced broadband network to broadcast all FIFA World Championship 2006 soccer matches over IP, as well as enhance its Voice over IP (VoIP) services.

With support for high-density Ethernet, the E320 Broadband Services Router can also efficiently facilitate FASTWEB’s migration from its existing ATM broadband network to a next-generation Ethernet-based access network.

“As our IPTV, voice and video on demand services continue to attract new customers, we remain committed to providing high levels of performance, quality, reliability and security,” said Guido Garrone, chief technology officer at FASTWEB. “With the E320 Broadband Services Router, we avoid deploying costly and inefficient service overlay networks.
