Juniper Networks Breakthrough 100 GigEthernet for T Series Routers

Industry's First 100 GE Router Interface to Provide Next Generation of Scale Required to Support Virtualization and Cloud Computing Trends as T Series Crosses 5000 Units Shipped Milestone

100 Gigabit Ethernet (100 GE) router interface cardSUNNYVALE, Calif., June 8, 2009 — Juniper Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: JNPR), the leader in high-performance networking, today introduced the industry's first 100 Gigabit Ethernet (100 GE) router interface card, which will be delivered on the T1600 Core Router. Driven by rapidly increasing network traffic — with video, advanced wireless services and emerging trends such as cloud computing as key drivers — core networks will soon require a new generation of scale, and 100 GE interfaces will provide an order of magnitude increase over the majority of interfaces available today.

As the first company to introduce 100 GE interfaces on a core router, Juniper Networks is ensuring its T1600 will provide long-term investment protection and the scalability and flexibility needed to fuel revenue from high-capacity services such as Long Term Evolution (LTE) and video. With a significant increase in per-link capacity, Juniper's 100 GE interface card will enable service providers and data centers to reduce the number of interfaces required in their networks, yielding significant gains in simplified topologies and enhanced operational efficiencies — helping to lower total cost of ownership.

The 100 GE interfaces being introduced today will build on — and further enhance — several groundbreaking Juniper core innovations in recent years, including:

* The T1600 Core Router: introduced in 2007, the T1600 remains the industry's highest capacity single chassis core router, the world's most energy efficient core router, and the only core router with 100 gigabits/second of per-slot capacity
* Juniper Control System (JCS) 1200: the industry's first — and still the only — high performance control plane scaling platform, which introduced independent scaling of forwarding and control plane resources and hardware-based virtualization for T Series routers
* TX Matrix Plus: which enables multiple T1600s to be combined with the JCS 1200 to create highly scalable, flexible hardware-based virtualized routers.

The innovations listed above, as well as many others, have helped the T Series become the industry's most widely deployed core routing family. Juniper has shipped over 5000 T Series to more than 220 customers around the world — including more than 500 T1600s in just over a year of availability. According to Synergy Research, in the past five years, Juniper's share of the core routing market has grown by 44 percent — with the company gaining 11 points of share as others have seen share declines.

"100 GE has always been inevitable, it has just been a question of when — now trends such as cloud computing, data center consolidation and virtualization are making the need for 100 GE more acute and urgent than ever before," said Opher Kahane, senior vice president and general manager, High-End Systems Business Unit, Juniper Networks. "Building on over a decade of groundbreaking achievements in the core, such as the industry's first 100 gigabit-per-slot routers, Juniper is again leading the industry with 100 GE interfaces. This is the type of innovation that drives customers to pick Juniper for their high-performance networks and ensures long-term investment protection."

Juniper will showcase the 100 GE interface card in its booth (5L27) at Interop Tokyo this week, and the 100 GE interface card is expected to be deployed in customer pilot networks before the end of 2009.
