(NASDAQ: JNPR), the leader in high-performance networking, today announced that its high-performance EX-series Ethernet switches won the Grand Prix for small and medium business (SMB) network infrastructure at Interop Tokyo 2008. The award is Juniper’s second consecutive Grand Prix at the event following a 2007 win for the company’s T1600 service-aware core router.
