SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Juniper Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: JNPR) today strengthened its position in the Carrier Ethernet market with the introduction of the MX960 Ethernet Services Router, establishing a new industry standard for Carrier Ethernet capacity, density and performance. The first in a series of platforms optimized for emerging Ethernet network architectures and services, the MX960 is purpose-built for the most demanding carrier applications and extends the company's existing Ethernet products and technologies introduced earlier in the year. The MX960 leverages the JUNOS operating system that enables carriers to seamlessly and cost-effectively deploy Ethernet and accelerate their next-generation network deployments. By combining a best-in-class hardware platform with the reliability and service flexibility of JUNOS, the MX960 delivers a combination of features and capabilities previously unattainable in Carrier Ethernet deployments.

The new MX960 platform is the industry's largest capacity Carrier Ethernet platform with up to 960 gigabits per second (Gbps) of switching and routing capacity-enabling reduced costs and increased revenue per platform with scale to protect customers' investments. Offering efficient support of high-density interfaces and high-capacity switching throughput, the MX960 enables a wide range of business and residential applications and services, including high-speed transport and VPN services and next-generation broadband multiplay aggregation.

"I am pleased to see Juniper Networks extending its key strengths of carrier class performance, reliability and scale into the Carrier Ethernet market," said Mr. Maurizio Binello, chief technical officer, Tiscali International Network. "As a key technology underpinning both network and service reach, it is critical that the Ethernet-centric elements of the network are capable of achieving the same high levels of uptime and performance as the IP/MPLS core. I am confident that with this announcement, Juniper Networks will achieve that goal."
