Juniper Networks, Inc. today announced that Zhejiang Telecom, a subsidiary of China Telecom, has deployed the Juniper Networks T-series platform to boost the performance and reliability of its Metro IP core network and optimize performance of its MPLS VPN service.
The project, Juniper Networks' first T-series deployment in Zhejiang Province, required T320 routing platforms in each of Zhejiang's ten cities, including Ningbo, Hangzhou and Wenzhou. Following an earlier deployment of Juniper Networks M-series, which facilitated the launching of the carrier's L2 and L3 MPLS VPN service, the T-series deployment will enable interconnection between autonomous VPN routes within Zhejiang Telecom's network for more efficient VPN traffic routing.
The deployment of the T-series will also help Zhejiang Telecom to handle increasing volumes of IP traffic resulting from the rapid uptake of its next-generation telecommunication services. Designed to deliver bandwidth density, performance and dependability, is is believed that the T-series platforms will enhance the reliability of Zhejiang Telecom's network, as well as enable the creation of new services.
