Pakistan Private Asset Management Company Builds Strategic Network with Juniper Networks High-Performance Network Infrastructure


Juniper Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: JNPR), the leader in high-performance networking, today announced that JS Investments Ltd.(formerly JS ABAMCO), one of Pakistan’s largest private asset base management companies, has deployed a new high-performance IP/MPLS network infrastructure based upon Juniper’s routing, security and application acceleration solutions. JS Investments Ltd.’s upgraded network is designed to provide fast, reliable and secure links across the company’s branch network, in support of key applications that underpin its business operations and disaster recovery planning. Premier Systems Pvt. Ltd, a local Juniper J-Partner, deployed the network.

“In financial services time is money, so our network is a strategic asset that enables us to be highly competitive and provide first-class service to our customers,” said Muhammad Ali, Senior Manager Networks of JS Investments Ltd. “We opted for MPLS because of its flexibility and ability to provide an efficient infrastructure across which to run financial transactions. From there, Juniper was the natural choice because of the performance and functionality of its MPLS-based routing infrastructure, coupled with its comprehensive range of security solutions and all-round cost-effectiveness.”

JS Investments Ltd. has deployed Juniper Networks J-series services routers across its regional offices to create its MPLS branch network. To secure the network effectively, JS Investments Ltd. also deployed a range of Juniper’s security solutions including the Juniper Networks Secure Services Gateway appliances, NetScreen-5GT integrated firewall/VPN solutions, Intrusion Detection and Prevention (IDP) products and Secure Access SSL VPN remote access solutions. Mission critical business applications running across the network, including Enterprise Resource Planning and an Online Unit Base Management system, are being accelerated by the Juniper Networks WXC application acceleration platform for optimal performance. The integrated firewall/VPNs, IDP and WXC products are also deployed on the links between JS Investment’s Ltd. branch network and its disaster recovery site, to ensure that back-up traffic is efficiently compressed and secured.

“As a leading financial services company, JS Investments Ltd.’s reputation among its customers and peers relies upon speed, reliability and security in its network,” said Gert-Jan Schenk, senior vice president of operations, EMEA for Juniper Networks. “We are very pleased that the company has chosen to build a network infrastructure using Juniper Networks solutions–this is a solid example of high-performance networking being used to build differentiation and growth, in a highly competitive marketplace.”
