Deutsche Telekom Deploys Juniper Networks Routing Platforms
T-Com Expands with E- and T-series Routing Platforms to Enable Innovative Services such as IPTV
SUNNYVALE, Calif., April 4th, 2006 - Juniper Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: JNPR) today announced that T-Com, the fixed network division of Deutsche Telekom AG, is deploying Juniper Networks E-series Broadband Services Routers and T-series core routing platforms to expand and scale its IP network to support its advanced service offerings over VDSL. The Juniper Networks routing platforms will be added to T-Com’s existing installed base of Juniper Networks E-, M- and T-series routing platforms, and will provide the scalability and advanced service management capabilities necessary to deliver IP-based video services to a large number of subscribers.
“T-Com is building one of the world’s most advanced networks to deliver IPTV, video on demand, and other advanced services to customers throughout Germany,” said Eddie Minshull, executive vice president of worldwide field operations, Juniper Networks. “We are very pleased T-Com has again chosen Juniper Networks to secure and assure its network, and this is yet another great example of the key role Juniper Networks plays in IPTV networks worldwide.”
T-Com is upgrading its network to VDSL2 (Very Fast Digital Subscriber Line), with the first stage of deployment covering 10 cities throughout Germany, and Juniper Networks E- and T-series deliver the scale to support the increased bandwidth per subscriber requirements.
For the new network segments with Ethernet aggregation, E-series broadband Services Routers will be used among others to aggregate traffic from lower-level Ethernet switches. Juniper Networks E-series platforms are a central component of the broadband edge, and are deployed in the largest IPTV and Triple Play networks in the world.
Working with the existing M- and T-series platforms in T-COM’s network, the new T-series platforms will provide advanced IP/MPLS capabilities to efficiently distribute traffic in the network core. As the industry’s most proven core routing platform, the T-series is deployed in over 100 production service networks worldwide and features the highly stable and resilient JUNOS operating system. With its multi-chassis TX Matrix technology, the T-series enables scaling to multi-terabit rates without the risks associated with new and unproven architectures.
