Juniper Merges Network Core Elements to Cut Carrier Costs

Thursday Mar 3rd 2011 by Staff

New switches could be used to replace traditional IP routers.

Computerworld: Today, most internet service providers (ISPs) use a combination of optical and electronic systems in their core network infrastructure. Now Juniper is rolling out a new switch that combines both technologies. According to the company, the PTX Series Packet Transport Switch platform could reduce carriers' capital costs by between 40 percent and 65 percent compared with a traditional multiprotocol routing architecture and by 35 percent compared with an IP-only routing system.

The company hopes to ship the first of the new switches in the first quarter of 2012.
