Juniper Networks Inc. today announced that Shanghai Telecommunications has selected the E-series routing platform for the third phase in the expansion of its advanced high-speed broadband network.
This most recent deployment of the E-series in Shanghai Telecommunications' network will extend the geographical reach of broadband ADSL access in the city. The deployment, which is being implemented now, also underpins a network capacity upgrade to meet growing demand for new value-added services including the Shanghai Online 2 multimedia service, also known as China VNet. Shanghai Online 2 offers video on demand, training and education content, gaming and music.
Juniper Networks announced that the E-series routing platforms were being deployed in the second phase of the broadband network expansion project in August 2002. Shanghai Telecom has also used Juniper Networks M-series as the core routing platforms since March 2001.
The E-series, which combines carrier-class routing performance with broadband subscriber management and IP services in a single platform, meets Shanghai Telecommunications' requirement for a high performance edge routing solution that scales to accommodate network growth and generates new Quality of Service (QoS)-based service revenues by providing an assured user experience.
