TV Cabo Selects Juniper Networks for New IP/MPLS Metro Networks


Juniper Networks M320 Routers will Enable TV Cabo to Deliver Broadcast Quality Converged Data and Video Services

SUNNYVALE, Calif., November 30, 2006 - Juniper Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: JNPR) today announced that TV Cabo, Portugal’s largest pay-TV operator, has selected M320 Multiservice Routers from Juniper Networks to build its new IP/MPLS metropolitan networks throughout Portugal. The new networks will enable TV Cabo to deliver digital services such as ultra high-speed Internet, broadcast and on-demand video as well as new, advanced PacketCable-based services for subscribers.

According to TV Cabo, the constant improvement of network performance is crucial to delivering reliable and efficient new digital services to its customers, with the highest-quality experiences.

“The convergence of video and data onto unified IP network platforms offers TV Cabo increased service opportunity,” said Gert-Jan Schenk, vice president of operations, EMEA, Juniper Networks. “The M320 platform is a high performance platform built upon open standards, which simplifies network integration, enhances service delivery and assures the consumer experience.”

Within TV Cabo’s new infrastructure, the M320 routers will connect using 10 Gigabit Ethernet rings. The M320s will enable TV Cabo to use IP VPNs (virtual private networks) to segregate services, provide QoS implementation to prioritize each service appropriately, and support both IP Multicast and Unicast for efficient video distribution. TV Cabo will also use MPLS FRR (fast re-route) to automatically re-route traffic around failure points within the network, ensuring service quality even in the event of accidents or equipment failures.

Juniper Networks M320 Multiservice Edge Platform is the industry’s most scalable, secure and reliable 10 Gigabits per second-capable multiservice edge routing platform. The M320 shares the proven, reliable JUNOS operating system with all Juniper M- and T-series platforms, ensuring customer networks operate with the same levels of performance across many different platforms, applications and locations.
