Juniper Launches World's Most Powerful Edge Services Engine Enabling Service Providers to Maximize Top Line Revenue
SUNNYVALE, CA, Oct 11, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
Juniper Networks (NYSE: JNPR), the industry leader in network
innovation, today announced the world's most powerful edge services
router and a single, virtualized platform for rapid deployment of
multivendor applications. Combined, the new Juniper Networks(R)
MX2020 3D Universal Edge Router and new JunosV App Engine transform
the network edge into a powerful platform for rapid service
deployment, speeding time to revenue by up to 69 percent compared to
other solutions(1). This helps service providers reverse declining
revenue models by removing the complexity and time associated with
"Our vision for the new network is to provide innovations that help
transform service providers into super providers," said Rami Rahim,
senior vice president, Edge and Aggregation Business Unit, Juniper
Networks. "Thousands of MX customers have validated the need for
massive scaling and reduced complexity driven by emerging video,
applications, and cloud-based services. We see our new edge services
engine as the first solution that truly empowers service providers to
take control of their business by removing barriers currently
hindering innovation and revenue expansion."
The MX Series router and JunosV App Engine build on recently
announced consumer and business services that allow customers to
leverage their existing infrastructure to maximize revenue
opportunities through rapid service deployment. This solution offers
new levels of scale for service providers by delivering a gateway for
everything the network has to offer: one system, innovative software
services, with unlimited revenue possibilities at unconstrained
-- MX2020 and MX2010 3D Universal Edge Routers, the world's most powerful
single-chassis routers, allow service providers to scale up to 67
percent more capacity than any other competitor(2). At 80 Tbps of
capacity, a single MX2020 3D Universal Edge router has enough
bandwidth to deliver HD video to the equivalent of every household in
New York -- and still have room for New Jersey. The routers leverage
the Juniper Networks Junos(R) Trio Chipset with massive 3D scaling
across bandwidth, subscribers and services to help service providers
deliver mobile Internet, cloud and video services with reduced
infrastructure and operational complexity. Existing Trio-based line
cards can be used interchangeably in this new chassis, preserving
investment protection for customers with MX Series 3D routers already
in their infrastructure. The MX2010 3D router supports 40 Tbps of
-- JunosV App Engine with the MX Series 3D router is the first hypervisor
for the edge. Service providers can drag and drop existing
applications, such as load balancing, security services, online gaming
and advertising(3), as well as simultaneously operate applications
from any vendor to help them drive new streams of revenue quickly.
-- MX Virtual Chassis virtualizes broadband or business edge services
over multiple MX 3D routers allowing service providers to operate the
systems as a single chassis and quickly add new subscribers. Benefits
include faster time to provision services, higher resiliency,
increased performance and scale.
-- Path Computational Element (PCE) on the MX brings programmable
properties into the network so that IT managers can find the most
efficient paths to optimize on-demand bandwidth requirements.
-- Juniper Rapid Assessment is a suite of services to enable simplified
integration and testing with operating and business support systems
(OSS/BSS), traffic migration, network security, and virtual
application development. These services help customers accelerate
production deployment and reduce time to revenue. Consultants from
Juniper and its partners specialize in multivendor environments across
wireless and wireline networks, IP/MPLS technology and security.
-- "With data on Telstra's fixed network doubling approximately every 17
months we need a network that is scalable, resilient and integrated.
The Juniper Edge Services Router assists Telstra to manage content
delivery, is highly scalable and integrates our networks. Using this
equipment in our network assists us to manage the ever increasing
volumes of traffic on the Telstra network."
- Mike Wright, executive
director, Networks and Access Technologies, Telstra
-- "Our ability to build highly scalable networks to support streaming
video adoption and complex business applications require network
innovators to deliver high performance routers and improved
operational efficiency. As network bandwidth and essential business
application requirements continue to advance, Juniper's routing and
software solutions empower us with the massive capacity headroom and
carrier-grade features to methodically evolve our network with the new
world of business."
- Kempei Fukuda, director, Network Services
Division, NTT Communications
-- "To stay ahead of the rapid pace of mobility and cloud-optimized
applications, our enterprise customers need simplified communications
services that will scale on-demand and remain highly reliable.
Juniper's networking approach enables us to seamlessly accelerate the
delivery of advanced communications services to our customers without
being hindered by operational complexity and performance limitations.
As a result, we are precisely positioned to improve our customers'
experience and deliver competitive solutions in the future."
MacNeil, chief marketing officer, XO Communications
-- SINET connects universities and research institutions within Japan and
globally for research collaboration. "In order for us to efficiently
manage demand for greater bandwidth, latency-sensitive services and
additional users, we needed a more flexible and programmable
architecture. Juniper's innovative approach with the JunosV App Engine
is a way for us to seamlessly create and simultaneously operate
multiple applications on a single platform, reducing application
migration time for future and new-generation Internet."
Aoki, research professor, National Institute of Informatics (NII)
-- "We predict that public IT cloud services spending will reach over $40
billion this year and almost $100 billion in 2016. This opportunity,
coupled with streaming video and audio driving nearly half of the
broadband traffic today and growing, will enable service providers to
increase revenue if they capitalize now on the cloud, content, and
mobility drivers. This new generation of edge routers optimized to
enable virtualized data, voice and video services from a single,
scalable platform will enable providers to cost-effectively monetize
their networks with new consumer and business services."
