SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Juniper Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ:JNPR - News) today announced that Northwestel, a subsidiary of Bell Canada, has deployed Juniper Networks J- and M-series routing platforms at the customer premise, edge and core of its network to deliver a secure and assured services experience. Northwestel selected the Juniper Networks routing solution for its proven performance and reliability and for its ability to support a wide range of voice, data, VPN and IP/MPLS services using a single software release end-to-end across the network.

Northwestel will be deploying fully redundant Juniper Networks M-series routers in all of its major points of presence for both core and edge routing. Delivering wide support for IP/VPN services and line rate performance even with elaborate policy filters, the M-series will enable Northwestel to deliver consistently performing IP services throughout its nearly four million square kilometer service area. The J-series Services Router will be used as a customer premise router to support Northwestel's business solutions, providing speed, reliability and enhanced security options.

The J- and the M-series utilize the same proven JUNOS modular operating system, enabling Northwestel to reduce operating expenses. By running multiple functions in parallel on assigned processing resources, JUNOS software delivers high stability with the flexibility to enable advanced routing, QoS, security and management policies with predictable performance.

"The proven reliability and performance of Juniper Networks routers enables us to support a wider range of IP services, while improving the overall reliability of our network," said Paul Flaherty, President and CEO of Northwestel. "The ability to run one common software release across all our core routers will simplify operations and new products introduction. This initiative complements our focus on new network services and growth."
