a market leader in emerging IP infrastructure solutions, today announced that UUNET, a division of MCI WorldCom (Nasdaq: WCOM) and a global leader in Internet communications solutions, will deploy Juniper M40 Internet backbone routers in its U.
The solutions feature highly scalable IP platforms enabling rapid delivery of new value-added services in an interoperable, multiservice network environment: the AXI 540 series Edge Aggregation Routers, AXD Multiservice Switches, and AXI 590, AXI 580 and AXI 520 series IP Backbone Routers (based on Juniper Networks' T- and M-series routers).
Logically deployed behind the access devices and in front of the backbone routers, this highly manageable solution distinctly identifies subscriber traffic and classifies application flows at the network boundary.
Under the new contract, the second IP backbone contract for Ericsson with FuJian CT, Ericsson will provide its Packet Backbone Network solution, including its AXI 580 IP Backbone Routers (based on Juniper Networks M160 Internet routers) and switches from Extreme Networks.
The Ericsson AXI 520 and 580 IP backbone routers are built to deliver highly reliable, scalable, and cost-efficient IP services across high-speed networks.
Under the contract, Ericsson will deploy its industry leading AXI 580 and AXI 520 Internet Protocol (IP) Backbone routers (based on the Juniper Networks M-Series IP routers).
The solutions feature highly scalable IP and ATM platforms enabling rapid delivery of new value-added services in an interoperable, multiservice network environment: the AXD Multiservice Switches, AXI 540 series Edge Aggregation Routers, and AXI 580 and AXI 520 series IP Backbone Routers (based on Juniper Networks M160, M40(TM), M20(TM), M10(TM) and M5(TM) routers).
