Juniper's J20 Is Jumping

CANNES, France -- 3GSM Congress -- Juniper Networks Inc. (Nasdaq: JNPR) says it now has over 25 customers for its J20 GPRS gateway service node (GGSN) product, which was jointly developed with Ericsson AB (Nasdaq: ERICY) and is being marketed and sold by the Swedish vendor (see Juniper Unveils ‘Wireless Router’).

The J20, which was launched at last year's Cannes bash, is being used by Cingular Wireless, Hutchison (Australia) Limited, and Telstra Corp., among others, according to Neik van Bemmel, director of corporate communications, EMEA. "It's actually a good mix of Asia, Europe, and the U.S.," he told Light Reading's sister site, Unstrung.

Juniper is not keen to talk about the sort of revenues that it sees from sales of the J20. However, last time we spoke to analysts about this they agreed that the wireless router is probably a nice little earner – albeit with the emphasis on little – making $5 million and counting per quarter (see Juniper's GGSN Gamble?).

The market for wireless packet edge products is analyzed by the recent Wireless Oracle report, "Wireless Routers: A Market Waiting to Happen?" The report assesses the leading GGSN and PDSN products from the major, publicly-listed infrastructure vendors and a host of startup players.
