SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Juniper Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: JNPR - News) today announced that AARNet Pty Ltd (APL) has selected its M-series routing platform for the Australian Academic and Research Network (AARNet). APL will deploy Juniper Networks M320, M40e and M20 routing platforms on its new AARNet3 network.

APL is the not-for-profit company that is building AARNet3, the third generation of Australia's Academic and Research Network, which will provide high capacity Internet services to Australia's universities, research institutions, education and other related organisations. AARNet serves more than 1,000,000 end users through member institutions and customers. In 2004 AARNet delivered almost 1 petabyte (1024 terabytes) of traffic, and APL expects traffic growth to continue to exceed 50 per cent per year for several years.

"AARNet is building one of the world's most advanced and wide reaching networks for future generations," said Chris Hancock CEO of AARNet. "The exciting activities of astronomy, high energy physics and immersive multi-media test the boundaries of our network capacity. Astronomy alone is looking at terabytes nightly. The flow-on effects in network development will benefit communications networks around the world. These networks are now among society's most important infrastructures. They are vital to so many sectors of our economy."
