Indonesian Education Department (DIKNAS) Accelerates Country’s Largest WAN and Significantly Increases ROI with Juniper Networks
Juniper’s Integrated Application Acceleration and Secure Routing Chosen as Powerful and Reliable Solution Offering Fastest Throughput in the Industry
SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Juniper Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: JNPR), the leader in high-performance networking, today announced that the Indonesian Ministry of National Education (DIKNAS) has reduced traffic latency, improved network application response time and eliminated wasted bandwidth on its school network -- Indonesia’s largest WAN -- with Juniper Networks application acceleration and routing integrated on a single platform. The Juniper Networks WXC Integrated Services Module (ISM) 200 with the J2300 Services Routers can deliver the fastest throughput currently offered in the application acceleration industry, enabling DIKNAS to boost network performance and value, and increase operational simplicity for 1140 schools and other sites across the country.
End-user spending on integrated WAN optimization products is among the fastest growing categories in the application acceleration market, according to Gartner1, a leading information technology research and advisory company. With the WXC ISM 200 operating at 10Mbps of compressed throughput, Juniper offers the fastest solution in this category, a key differentiator to support DIKNAS’ plans for enabling powerful and reliable new network applications for its schools, such as VoIP, centralized database access, video-on-demand and video conferencing.
“Juniper delivers unmatched functional integration of application acceleration with secure routing on a single platform, which enables us to deploy applications and services more quickly to our constituents,” said Khalid Mustafa, head of the network division for DIKNAS. “We are maximizing our ROI in addition to network traffic performance. Our IT staff is also more productive, with less management overhead, allowing us to use our applications to create a real competitive advantage.”
The WXC Integrated Services Module is installed like a Physical Interface Module (PIM) in the J-Series router and provides the application acceleration features of WAN acceleration. The integration of application acceleration with branch routing platforms provides a consolidated solution that provides more operational simplicity at branch offices.
The WXC ISM 200 is a best-in-class application acceleration platform, which recently won a Best of Show Award at Interop Tokyo 2008 for improving application performance over the WAN by eliminating redundant transmissions, accelerating TCP and application-specific protocols, prioritizing and allocating access to bandwidth, and ensuring high application availability at sites with multiple WAN links.
The J-series Services Routers offer predictable high performance and a variety of flexible interfaces that deliver secure, reliable network connectivity to remote, branch and regional offices. All models run modular JUNOS® software, which offers many advanced services (MPLS, IPv6, QoS, multicast, etc) and security (stateful firewall and IPSec VPN), delivering high levels of security, uptime and performance at reduced operational costs.
“The WXC ISM 200 is highly effective and consistent in widely distributed networks for increasing productivity while reducing complexity and costs,” said Ross Roesner, vice president, WAN Acceleration Business Unit at Juniper Networks. “We are committed to delivering functionally integrated solutions that set new metrics in high-performance networking. This empowers educational organizations such as DIKNAS to quickly scale a broad range of applications and deliver quality education to the next generation of learners.”
