Romanian Service Provider Euroweb Upgrades Network with Juniper Networks Routing Platforms
Juniper Networks M-series Multiservice Routing Platforms to Increase Reliability and Security and Enable Future Growth
SUNNYVALE, Calif., March 14th, 2006 - Juniper Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: JNPR) today announced that Euroweb Romania, a leading Internet Service Provider in Central and Eastern Europe, has upgraded its data network with Juniper Networks M-series routing platforms to improve the reliability and security of its network for business and residential customers.
Euroweb is deploying the M-series to perform border routing functions at peer transit points of the network. Euroweb chose to upgrade with the M-series because the existing border routing platforms were no longer capable of protecting its customers from the increasing threat of network-based attacks.
“Romania’s telecommunications market is evolving rapidly. We needed to upgrade our routing infrastructure to improve security and reliability for our customers, but also to ensure our infrastructure could keep pace with future growth and service requirements,” said Laurentiu Stan, Euroweb’s General Manager. “The Juniper platforms provide a secure and robust platform to support our current and future services, and we were also able to streamline the number of routing platforms in our network, reducing capital and operational costs.”
Juniper Networks M-series multiservice routing platforms are recognized as the industry-leading platform for sophisticated IP routing applications, and have been deployed in the largest IP networks for the past eight years, establishing a track record of stability, reliability, and scalability. The M-series supports the industry’s most comprehensive VPN portfolio, combined with the ability to simultaneously support existing and emerging Layer 2 and Layer 3 services. Constructed with clean separation between the control plane, forwarding plane, and services plane, the M-series multiservice routing systems support multiple services without compromise on a single platform-enhancing revenue opportunities and minimizing operational and capital costs.
“Euroweb provides Romanian businesses and consumers with a range of innovative, secure and reliable voice, data, and VPN services,” said Eddie Minshull, executive vice president of worldwide field operations, Juniper Networks. “We are pleased that when they recognized the need to upgrade their core network, they chose Juniper Networks to help build an agile, open and customizable network infrastructure.”
