SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Juniper Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ:JNPR), the leader in high-performance networking, today announced that Japan’s NTT Communications (NTT Com) has deployed Juniper Networks T1600 core routers to scale the capacity of its global IP network, the largest dedicated Internet backbone network in the world. Traffic growth driven by increased subscriber demand for IPTV and multiplay services compelled NTT Com to scale the capacity of its global Tier-1 IP backbone network. Key considerations for the selection included the non-disruptive upgrade path from the T640 to the multi-terabit capacity and energy efficiency advantages of the T1600.

“To support rapid increase of Internet traffic and services, we upgraded our backbone network with T1600s to expand routing capacity, while also minimizing operational cost, space and power consumption,” said Kempei Fukuda, director, global network department, NTT Com. “With the T1600, we doubled the network capacity on the same footprint and, more importantly, reduced power consumption by more than 20 percent. The T1600 is an optimal solution for improving network performance, creating more value for our customers, as well as meeting our commitment to protect the environment.”
