Deloitte Belgium Implements Juniper Networks Wireless LAN to Deliver Fast, Reliable and Secure Network

Belgium's Largest Accounting and Consulting Company Goes Wireless With Juniper Networks WLC Series WLAN Controllers and WLA Series Wireless Access Points

BRUSSELS, BELGIUM--(Marketwire - Sep 22, 2011) - Juniper Networks (NYSE: JNPR) today announced that Deloitte Belgium, the largest accounting and consulting organization in Belgium, has deployed Juniper Networks® WLC2800 WLAN Controllers and WLA522 wireless LAN access points to deliver a fast, reliable, secure network that provides highly flexible working solutions for its employees and visitors.

Deloitte Belgium's wireless network supports data and voice communications, enabling employees to make calls using Microsoft Office Communicator. All wireless LANs at the firm's 10 offices are connected to Juniper Networks WLC2800 controllers at Deloitte's two data centers, with fully redundant Gigabit connections. Deloitte also installed approximately 180 WLA522 wireless access points, 15 percent fewer than anticipated due to the broad wireless LAN coverage and roaming reliability provided by the Juniper Networks solution.

"Making it possible for everyone to work completely wirelessly at Deloitte involved careful planning, as the reliability and speed of the network and the security of confidential information were of critical importance, as well as minimizing the risk of network issues via effective network management," says Mark Torfs, chief operating officer, Deloitte Belgium. "We chose Juniper Networks for its extensive central network management software, its proven track record for reliability with Deloitte in other countries, and its low total cost of ownership."

"As workers become increasingly mobile, wireless has moved from simply being a convenience to the primary means of network access, and large organizations like Deloitte Belgium need to expand their infrastructure rapidly to provide employees and customers with ubiquitous, secure and uninterrupted connectivity from multiple mobile devices," said Mike Marcellin, vice president, product marketing and business strategy, Platform Systems Group, Juniper Networks. "Juniper Networks can provide a high performance wireless infrastructure that delivers a seamless, safe and consistent mobility experience regardless of where, when, or how users access the network."

Juniper Networks WLAN controllers, access points and management tools are the most scalable and reliable in the industry, and the solution has an unmatched hitless failover capability under even the most extreme network failure conditions. The WLC2800 WLAN Controller, designed for mass deployment of wireless LAN access in large enterprises, offers 28 Gbps of switching throughput and supports up to 512 802.11n access points. The WLA522 Wireless LAN Access Point is designed for high-density deployments requiring maximum capacity.

Juniper Networks' local partner on the Deloitte Belgium deployment is Belgacom, a specialized provider of end-to-end solutions combining fixed and mobile telecom, IT and media.
