Juniper Networks supplies QFX5100 switches for TELEHOUSE data centers

Juniper Networks (NYSE: JNPR) said that it has been chosen by TELEHOUSE America, a KDDI group company that delivers carrier-neutral data center services, to supply its QFX5100 line of switches to enable a multi-tenant infrastructure connecting its data centers throughout multiple U.S. locations, and to offer connectivity in and beyond its facilities.

Juniper Networks (NYSE: JNPR) said that it has been chosen by TELEHOUSE America, a KDDI group company that delivers carrier-neutral data center services, to supply its QFX5100 line of switches to enable a multi-tenant infrastructure connecting its data centers throughout multiple U.S. locations, and to offer connectivity in and beyond its facilities.

According to Juniper Networks, TELEHOUSE America requires a system providing strong connectivity, and enabling monitoring and management with minimal time and resources. The company chose Juniper’s QFX5100 line of switches for its capability to implement EVPN-VXLAN technology across TELEHOUSE America's remote data centers, decreasing its operational workload and streamlining software configuration using SDN technology.

Additionally, TELEHOUSE America selected Juniper's Virtual Chassis fabric technology and the Junos OS API to attain improved levels of automation, while decreasing total ownership cost and increasing long-term return on investments. TELEHOUSE America selected Juniper's QFX5100 Ethernet switch as the basis of a new multi-tenant infrastructure using EVPN-VXLAN technology throughout two locations in New York City, says Juniper Networks.

The company also replaced its traditional three-layered network architecture with Juniper's Virtual Chassis fabric technology and the open standards-based Junos OS API to automate various work streams, thereby implementing software configuration in five minutes.

As TELEHOUSE America plans for U.S., Europe, and Pacific Rim expansion, the integration capabilities of the Junos OS also provides required long-term network scalability assurance, Juniper said.

"We looked to improve our service quality by aggressively employing the latest cutting-edge technology," said Akio Sugeno, TELEHOUSE America vice president of internet engineering and operations and business development. "There were many technologies that looked promising, but standardization takes a long time. Juniper Networks was among the first to adopt advanced open technologies and is working aggressively to achieve standardization. Juniper Networks will support both the proven network OS and advanced open technologies."
