Juniper Networks Achieves TL 9000 Recertification


Juniper Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: JNPR), the leader in high-performance networking, today announced that it has again been awarded the prestigious TL 9000 certification for its core and edge routing products by the Quality of Excellence for Suppliers of Telecommunications (QuEST) Forum. In 2004, Juniper was the first and only IP routing vendor to achieve certification in the TL 9000 R3.0,1.2.9 router category, and this re-certification is a testament to the company’s continued commitment to excellence in meeting the quality requirements of its customers.

“As one of the founding members of the QuEST Forum, Verizon considers TL 9000 important as an internal Quality Management System for our own business units, as well as our supply chain requirement for our suppliers,” stated Patrick Pelan of Verizon’s S&PO program management. “TL 9000 defines the telecommunications quality system requirements for the design, development, production, delivery, installation and maintenance of products and services.”

Through TL 9000, The QuEST Forum developed and maintains a single common set of worldwide telecom quality management system requirements that build on existing industry standards and practices. By selecting TL 9000 certified suppliers, companies are assured that they have a quality management system (QMS) that has been systematically audited by an independent TL 9000 registrar. Furthermore, the advanced measurements system facilitates analysis against industry benchmarks, providing the basis for objective product or supplier evaluations to make fully informed supply decisions.

“Juniper Networks is an organization where the intent of TL9000 permeates the company, from executive management through all operational departments, with these requirements supporting their day-to-day operations,” said John Trubiano, lead auditor, T�V S�D America, a leading international service group. “The integration of TL9000 into their processes and the commitment demonstrated by the organization has been a direct contributor to the success and growth of Juniper over the last three years. Juniper Networks was first organization to obtain TL 9000 certification for product category 1.2.9 for their core and edge router products and their strong working relationship with T�V S�D America has been key to successfully achieving their 3 year recommendation for continued certification.”

“Our TL 9000 certification reaffirms our commitment to product and process quality, which is ultimately reflected in customers’ satisfaction and loyalty to Juniper,” said Brad Kashani, senior vice president of worldwide services. “The company has grown significantly since first achieving TL9000 certification; however, we remain focused on the quality and execution of Juniper’s high-performance network products and services.”
