Siemens and Juniper Networks Enable Singtel to Introduce New Bandwidth on Demand Service
SDX Service Deployment System and E-series Broadband Services Routers Deliver Flexible Premium IP Services
SUNNYVALE, Calif. and Munich, November 2, 2006 - Siemens and Juniper Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: JNPR) today announced that Singapore Telecommunications Limited (SingTel) has deployed Juniper Networks SDX Service Deployment System and E-series Broadband Services Routers to support the introduction of new premium IP services, including a new bandwidth on demand service. With the E-series and SDX, SingTel customers will be able to dynamically request and change their bandwidth metrics, throttling connection speeds from 125 Kbps up to as much as 25 Mbps.
“The SDX-300 enables us to offer a broad set of unique new services, such as on-demand bandwidth, without adding operational complexity to our network,” said Tan Seow Nguan, SingTel’s Director of Network Systems Engineering. “By automating the service provisioning process, the SDX-300 supports Singtel’s efforts to give our valued customers greater control of their broadband experience. The combination of E-series infrastructure and SDX-300 automation opens an entirely new revenue stream for us, while ensuring our customers have access to unique and compelling services.”
The Juniper Networks E-series Broadband Services Router is a central component of SingTel’s broadband edge network, delivering advanced features and capabilities that ensure QoS, support high availability and improve automation for advanced services. The SDX-300 Service Deployment System is a leading policy and resource manager, managing millions of subscribers for over one hundred service providers worldwide. The SDX ensures high quality, end-to-end service experiences by interacting with underlying transport equipment to reserve bandwidth, authenticate and admit users to the network, defend against security threats, and register service usage. The combined solution offers an impressive feature set, giving SingTel customers the ability to manage a wider variety of services themselves including flexible billing options, variable bandwidth speeds and per-service quality metrics.
“SingTel’s choice of Siemens as the preferred partner for integrating its broadband IP infrastructure is a clear affirmation of our technical expertise as well as the quality of support we have been providing,” said Joerg Kessler, senior vice president and head of Siemens Communications - Singapore. “We are delighted to once again play a pivotal role in delivering innovation through the implementation of the SDX.”
“Juniper works hard to bring cutting edge solutions to leading service providers such as SingTel,” said Brad Gray, vice president of South Asia Pacific for Juniper Networks. “The advanced technology implemented in the E-series and SDX provide SingTel with service reliability, flexibility and performance at scale-all of which will enable them to continue to drive revenue growth and attract new customers.”
