Siemens and Juniper Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ:JNPR) today announced that PT Telkom, Indonesia’s leading telecommunications service provider, has further expanded its IP/MPLS-based core infrastructure with additional Juniper Networks M-series multiservice routing platforms including the M320. The upgrade, performed by Siemens, builds on PT Telkom’s existing M-series routers, deployed last year as part of an initial Next Generation Network (NGN) rollout. The new deployment spans 17 cities, connecting softswitch systems and legacy routers.
“After more than a year of intensive use, our earlier M-series deployment has demonstrated the superiority and flexibility of Juniper’s JUNOS Operating System,” said Mr. Abdul Haris, PT Telkom’s Director of Network and Solutions and the service provider’s Chief Technology Officer. “We were also impressed by the routers’ traffic engineering capability, strict QoS adherence even under extremely heavy load, and Juniper’s high availability features, such as fast reroute and in-service upgrading. We are confident to stay with Juniper and its routing solutions for our long-term NGN strategy.”
The M-series multiservice routers are part of the Juniper Networks family of best-of-class routing platforms which also include the market leading E-series Broadband Services Routers and T-series next-generation core routers. Juniper Networks E-, M- and T-series routing platforms deliver industry-leading levels of performance, reliability and scale to enable service providers to deliver high-quality voice, video, data and other advanced services over an IP/MPLS network with assured levels of performance and security. The T-series is the industry's most proven core routing platform and, with the multi-chassis TX Matrix technology, allows service providers to scale to multi-terabit rates without the risks associated with new and unproven technologies.
“Our M-series deployment at PT Telkom is a great example of the benefits of migrating to a next generation IP/MPLS-based infrastructure,” said Adam Judd, vice president of Asia Pacific for Juniper Networks. “Asia Pacific’s need for capacity to deliver advanced services – including VoIP, realtime video, broadband access, and VPN services – continues to grow, and service providers such as PT Telkom are leveraging Juniper’s industry leading platforms to address this demand and capture new revenue opportunities.”
