Juniper Networks Helps Cox Communications Expand Nationwide Backbone


Leading MSO Deploys T-series Routers throughout Nationwide Network Core.

SUNNYVALE, Calif., February 28th, 2006 - Juniper Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: JNPR) today announced that Cox Communications, a multiservice broadband company with over 6.6 million customers, including over 1 million triple play customers (video, telephony and high-speed Internet), has chosen to expand its network with Juniper Networks routing platforms. As the second phase of its national backbone evolution, Cox is upgrading its entire core network with Juniper Networks T-series core routing platforms to increase scalability and performance.

“Since 2001, Juniper Networks has consistently delivered advanced capabilities, performance, and the reliability Cox customers expect. We are pleased to continue this relationship as we evolve our nationwide broadband network.” said Jay Rolls, vice president of Telephone and Data Engineering, Cox Communications. “Continuing to upgrade the national backbone enables us to effectively support demanding applications for our customers such as advanced video and voice over IP.”

Cox previously deployed Juniper Networks M- and T-series routing platforms to support multiple applications including peering, Cable Modem Termination System (CMTS) aggregation, high-speed Internet and video in its metro core networks. With emerging, advanced real-time services such as video and voice requiring more performance, higher reliability and assured quality of service, Cox is now upgrading with T640 core routers to ensure the company can continue to meet more stringent service level agreements and maintain its place as the industry leader in customer satisfaction.

Cox will leverage the M- and T-series’ industry-leading MPLS and point-to-multipoint capabilities to provide a seamless, nationwide network for the delivery of data, voice, video and mission-critical applications to Cox customers.

Juniper Networks is a leader in next-generation core routing deployments with over 100 T-series customers worldwide and over 1,000 units deployed. Both the M- and T-series leverage JUNOS, the industry’s only operating system that combines proven reliability with a development cycle that ensures continuous, non-disruptive feature and functionality enhancements.

“The Cox national high-speed IP/MPLS network upgrade will increase network scalability, enabling Cox to support current and future broadband IP-based multimedia service initiatives,” said Andrew J. Audet, vice president, Cable Products Business, Juniper Networks. “Our T-series platform continues to be the industry’s premier core routing platform for customers looking to deliver advanced services with a secure and assured networking experience, and we are very pleased Cox has again chosen Juniper Networks platforms for its network.”

Cox also relies on a range of Juniper Networks security solutions-including the Juniper Networks Integrated Security Gateways (ISG) and a full range of appliances ranging from the NetScreen-5GT to the NetScreen-208—to support the managed security service offered by Cox Business Services, the company’s commercial services division. The security solutions also protect key elements of Cox’s IP/MPLS backbone and provide site-to-site IP VPNs.

In conjunction with the agreement announced today, Juniper Networks was also awarded a multi-year service and support agreement for maintenance on the routing platforms.
