The T-series platforms will be added to Shanghai Telecom's existing base of Juniper Networks E- and M-series routing platforms and will provide the additional capacity, reliability and scale required to support increased demand for advanced IP-based services.
Shanghai Telecom currently uses Juniper Networks M-series multiservice platforms in smaller core sites and previously deployed the E-series Broadband Services Routers.
The E-series routing platforms support Shanghai's ADSL subscribers, providing the advanced routing capabilities that will enable Shanghai Telecom's IPTV service.
Shipping since April 2002, the T-series core routing platform is currently deployed in over 100 service provider production networks worldwide. The TX Matrix combines multiple T640 platforms to deliver multi-terabit scale in the smallest available footprint and protects customers' investments, enabling a lower total cost of ownership.
