360networks Expands Next-Generation Capabilities With Juniper Networks

Integrated Software and Hardware Portfolio Across Junos® Single OS Delivers Unmatched Reliability, Flexibility and Scalability

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwire - November 30, 2010) - Juniper Networks (NYSE: JNPR) today announced that 360networks -- a facilities-based wholesaler of communications services -- has selected Juniper Networks Junos Space, Ethernet routers and switches to expand its capabilities in supporting its customers' growing capacity needs and introduce new wholesale IP services.

"Juniper gives us the flexibility and capacity we need to scale and introduce new value added services for our customers," said Brady Adams, CTO, 360networks. "As we evolve our network, the core and the edge tend to blend. With Juniper, we have the capacity to scale our core while adding the flexibility to provide granular services to our customers with high reliability."

360networks turned to Juniper for core routing solutions that will support IP scalability while providing granular services to enhance the value to their existing customers and attract new ones. 360networks selected Junos Space for the development and deployment of applications that will enable its customers to scale services, simplify operations and automate support. Junos Space is an open, programmable network application platform that includes a portfolio of network infrastructure automation applications, including Junos Space Route Insight Manager, J-Care Agility Services and Junos Space Service Now.

Route Insight Manager enables network-wide visualization and monitoring to help 360networks manage rapid planning, troubleshooting and change simulation for its L3 IP/MPLS networks. Route Insight Manager also records all routing changes network-wide and allows historical replay for condition analysis. 360networks uses Service Now to reduce mean time between failures and mean time to repair. Additionally, Juniper's J-Care Agility Services are customized network analysis services that help 360networks evolve its network efficiently and effectively as its business changes.

360networks deployed Juniper Networks MX480 3D Universal Edge Routers, powered by the Junos operating system, at multiple POPs in its next-generation IP network. The highly redundant MX480 routers are ideal for dense dedicated access aggregation and provider edge services. 360networks also selected Juniper Networks EX4200 Ethernet Switches with virtual chassis fabric technology for low-speed aggregation to the MX480 routers, to deliver a scalable high-performance next-generation network.

360networks' IP/MPLS network capacity grew tenfold with the migration to a Juniper routing and switching infrastructure. With Juniper, 360networks has the scalable capacity it needs to offer its customers a portfolio of desirable IP services, with exacting levels of performance and reliability.

"We understand that 360networks needed a reliable solution and that's what we delivered," said Manoj Leelanivas, executive vice president and general manager of Junos Ready Software at Juniper Networks. "Our flexibility, scalability and granularity allowed 360networks to bring additional Internet transit and voice services down to the edge with high resilience."
