OSLO, Norway, MUNICH, Germany, and SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- The Norwegian Carrier Telenor ASA, with Headquarters in Norway, Has Commissioned Siemens Communications to Upgrade Its Broadband Network to a Next Generation IP MPLS (Multiprotocol Label Switching) Network

The order includes a comprehensive service and maintenance package. Siemens will be deploying, servicing and maintaining the core and edge routing platforms from its global partner Juniper Networks (Nasdaq:JNPR - News). The new infrastructure will enable Telenor to offer its business and residential customers assured, high-performance network capacity to meet increased demand for next-generation integrated data, voice and video services (triple play) on a single broadband network.

Telenor is upgrading its entire network to a new IP/MPLS network, including the distribution, access and core with Juniper Networks routing platforms supplied by Siemens. The new network is also based on RESIP (RESilient IP), a program of next-generation network design and engineering principles developed jointly by Siemens and Juniper.

By using a single IP/MPLS-based network, Telenor will be able to offer advanced services and applications to all of its customers more efficiently.

"The upgraded network is future proof and gives us the opportunity to offer more services at a competitive price," said Berit Svendsen, Vice President and Head of Telenor Nordic Fixed. "It is our intention to attract new customers in a highly competitive market as well as secure the loyalty of Telenor's existing Nordic customer base -- Siemens and Juniper were selected after a thorough evaluation process of both technology and understanding of our business challenges."
