Yonsei University Expands Its Campus Network With Juniper Networks to Support a Cloud-Enabled Enterprise

Providing Cloud Network Scale, Juniper Networks Deploys EX Series Ethernet Switches to Complete the University's First Phase of Its Wired and Wireless Network Integration Project

SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA--(Marketwired - June 02, 2016) - Juniper Networks (NYSE: JNPR), an industry leader in automated, scalable and secure networks, today announced that it has successfully completed the first phase of Yonsei University's wired and wireless network integration project. To drive the globally-renowned university toward the implementation of a cloud-enabled enterprise, Juniper was chosen to deploy its high-performance Juniper Networks® EX Series Ethernet Switches featuring 40GbE upgradability, for the university to easily scale its campus network across 69 buildings at its campus in Sinchon, Seoul.

In addition to its highly scalable 40 Gbps capability, the EX9208 Ethernet Switch was also selected for its ability to simplify the university's implementation of cloud applications, server virtualization and media collaboration tools.

Ideal for organizations like Yonsei with a high density of users, the EX4600 Ethernet Switch provides the university with deployment flexibility, high availability with integrated In-Service Software Upgrades (ISSU) and simplified MC-LAG management as well as Virtual Chassis technology allowing for a mix of up to 10 EX4600 and EX4300 switches in a single configuration.

Selected as part of Yonsei's strategic planning project to construct a next-generation network, Juniper's products provide the reliable, high-performance networking infrastructure required to address the university's increasing demand for network services and the growth of data traffic from its campus population.

Deployed across 69 of the buildings at the Sinchon campus, Yonsei's network was specifically set up to accommodate future network expansion. In addition, network infrastructure has been simplified from a legacy three-tier architecture to a two-tier architecture, improving simplicity of operations while simultaneously minimizing service downtime to ensure a highly robust level of network performance across the entire campus at any time.

Planned in four phases, Yonsei expects to complete the integration project by 2018.
