Juniper Networks QFX3500 Top-of-Rack Switches Chosen by TMX Atrium for Faster Execution of Its Global Financial Transactions

Juniper's New Network Solutions Reduce Total Cost of Ownership by 30 Percent

LONDON--(Marketwire - Jul 16, 2012) - Juniper Networks (NYSE: JNPR), the industry leader in network innovation, today announced its switching and routing technology has been deployed by TMX Atrium. This will provide flexibility, low latency and high-speed 24/7 connectivity to financial services organizations. TMX Atrium deployed Juniper Networks® QFX3500 Switches in its network to distribute market data more quickly and reliably, reaching up to 1.6 gigabits per second, the equivalent of downloading one movie over the Internet every eight seconds.

TMX Atrium, with presence in 12 countries across North America and Western Europe, chose Juniper's robust, fast, highly accessible and secure network with the ability to offer connectivity to 27 major trading venues and expand into new geographies. The service provider locates its Points of Presence (POPs) in data centers where there are large trading venues and consequently large liquidity pools. Juniper Networks MX Series 3D Universal Edge Routers support new POPs in new geographies and help TMX Atrium meet its customers' future requirements and exchange data feeds.

Juniper Networks technology, underpinned by the Junos® operating system, has been deployed at the edge, as a client device, and at the core of its network. EX Series Ethernet Switches and SRX Series Services Gateways are deployed at the core of the network and additional EX Series switches are used at the edge, where they deliver up to several hundred megabits per second for clients wanting to use multicast.
