Company to Deploy T1600 in European Points of Presence for Performance, Scale and Service Control

MILAN, Italy and SUNNYVALE, Calif., April 2008 -- Tiscali International Network (TINet), the wholesale carrier division of the Tiscali Group, and Juniper Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: JNPR), the leader in high-performance networking, today announced that TINet is scaling its core infrastructure to support the growing demand for multiplay services with the Juniper Networks T1600 multi-terabit core router.

As a major independent global carrier, TINet has one of the largest and most interconnected IP networks in the world. The company exclusively focuses on serving wholesale customers with high capacity IPv4 and IPv6 Transit, Layer 2 MPLS services for IPTV and data transport and with its global Ethernet private lines service. TINet currently serves a large number of leading Telcos, ISPs and Content Providers in four continents.

TINet will deploy the T1600s in several Points of Presence throughout Europe and America to accommodate its fast traffic growth and to support the latest 40 Gbps technologies. Capable of delivering an industry-leading 1.6 Tbps of throughput in a single half-rack chassis, the service-aware T1600 core router will enable TINet to scale the delivery of multiple high-capacity services over its global MPLS infrastructure.

“Our commitment is to anticipate and satisfy our wholesale customers for whom a scalable and reliable IP Transit solution is a critical building block for their service to end users,” said Maurizio Binello, chief operating officer, TINet. "Our innovative business model relies on highly scalable and highly flexible multiservice infrastructure and Juniper’s equipment has played a paramount role. It is for this reason that we operate a network exclusively based on Juniper’s routing equipment.

“Our advanced services are simple and fast to deploy. Our clients have come to expect a reliable service that is backed up with expert support made available right throughout the entire network. With the addition of the T1600, we can increase network capacity in line with our escalating service demands around the world, while maintaining our value proposition of high quality service on streamlined costs.”

“As a leading IP/MPLS carrier who differentiates from its competition with innovative services, the service-aware T1600 will deliver high-performance at scale with the reliability that TINet requires to help accelerate service revenue opportunities,” said Kim Perdikou, executive vice president and general manager, Infrastructure Products Group, Juniper Networks. “TINet’s decision to upgrade to T1600s with JUNOS software underscores Juniper’s commitment to technology excellence and innovation that protects customers’ investments as they scale their networks to support the demands of high-performance services and applications.”
