Juniper Networks Unveils Switching Trade-Up Program to Simplify Customer Networks, Streamline Channel Sales and Accelerate Market Share Growth

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwire - April 21, 2010) -   Juniper Networks® (NYSE: JNPR) today announced a new promotion aimed at enabling customers to cost effectively upgrade their switch infrastructures with Juniper's innovative EX Series products. The "Switch To Juniper" program provides incentives for businesses to simplify their network architectures while increasing performance, security, and energy efficiencies. In addition, the program enables Juniper's channel and strategic alliance partners to address market demand for Ethernet switches through a more streamlined process that expedites the sales cycle.

Beginning today through September 30, 2010, eligible businesses in the Americas can purchase new Juniper Ethernet Switches through an authorized Juniper partner to upgrade switches from legacy suppliers and save up to 60 percent off Juniper's list prices. These promotional savings are also available to existing Juniper security customers purchasing their first Juniper Ethernet switches. Specifically, eligible customers in the Americas can save up to 60 percent off Juniper's list prices on select EX Series switches.

"The time is right for customers to stop solving network challenges by purchasing more and more costly and complex legacy networking equipment" said Lauren Flaherty, executive vice president and chief marketing officer, Juniper Networks. "The 'Switch To Juniper' campaign is part of our strategy to make it easy for customers who are dissatisfied with the legacy approach, to switch now to faster, simpler and more secure networks."

The EX2200 line of Ethernet switches, ideal for access-layer deployments in branch offices and campus networks, delivers a level of functionality and performance normally associated with higher-cost solutions. The EX4200 switches with Virtual Chassis technology combine the availability and reliability of modular systems with the economics and flexibility of stackable switches, delivering a high-performance, scalable solution for data center and campus environments. The EX8200 line of modular switches offers flexible, modular platforms that deliver the port densities, scalability, and high availability required for today's demanding data center and campus core environments.
