Juniper Networks Selected by Cox Communications for Converged Metro Ethernet Infrastructure
Leading MSO Expands Capacity of Regional Networks with MX960 Routers
Juniper Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: JNPR), the leader in high-performance networking, today announced that Cox Communications has selected Juniper Networks MX-series Ethernet Services Routers as part of a multi-year project to expand the capacity and scale of its metro regional networks. To support increasing demand for its bundled residential services and accelerate its continued expansion into the commercial services market, Cox is transitioning toward a converged network architecture hub design combining voice, video, and data traffic, and selected the MX960 as the basis for this transformation.
“Juniper Networks routers have been deployed in our metro and national backbone network for years, and have helped Cox consistently deliver superior performance, reliability and security for residential and business customers,” said Matt Hayes, director of network engineering, Cox Communications. “As we migrate towards a standardized network architecture in our metro networks, the Juniper Networks MX960, which utilizes the same powerful JUNOS software and delivers industry-leading performance, quickly became our preferred choice.”
The Juniper Networks MX960 Ethernet Services Router, which is the largest capacity Carrier Ethernet platform currently available in the market, delivering up to 960 Gbps of switching and routing capacity, will be deployed in Cox’s metro hubs and regional data centers (RDCs). By delivering an optimum combination of scale, density, and support for advanced applications such as point-to-multi-point video distribution, the MX960 will enable Cox to consolidate multiple services on a single, converged IP/MPLS network. This converged network will deliver an efficient, cost-optimized platform that will improve service quality and velocity for Cox’s growing number of business and residential consumers.
“Leading MSOs such as Cox Communications are seeking to drive network monetization by delivering innovative new services to consumers, while also optimizing costs,” said Andrew J. Audet, vice president, Cable Segment, Juniper Networks. “With Juniper Networks MX-series in its regional networks, Cox will have a high-performance converged metro Ethernet infrastructure that can accelerate service innovation and support its growing customer and service base.”
