June 27, 2006 Sunnyvale, CA -- Telge Energi, a utility-based, government-owned communications provider in Sweden, has deployed Juniper Networks' E320 Broadband Services Router and the SDX-300 Service Deployment System to create its new broadband access network for the delivery of triple-play services to residential, corporate, and public sector customers throughout the Svdertdjle region of Sweden.

The network is secured by the Juniper Networks ISG-1000 with integrated intrusion detection and prevention (IDP) system and was deployed by Juniper's local partner, Imtech Telecom.

Telge Energi maintains a broadband access network that provides its customers with access to multiple Internet service providers (ISPs) offering a range of advanced IP-based services, including Internet/email, IPTV, video-on-demand (VoD), voice-over-IP (VoIP) and online gaming. Telge also provides its own broadcast TV content. Telge will use the E320 and SDX-300 combination to enable customers to select and self-provision services from a range of ISPs and network-based applications.

"In this dynamic environment, the ability for subscribers to self-provision their chosen services is a huge competitive advantage for us and the E-series and SDX have a proven performance and reputation in similar service provider environments throughout Europe," notes Mikael Stenqvist, technical director at Telge Energi. "This solution enables us to confidently and efficiently provide automated self-provisioning to our subscribers and to ensure that wire-speed access to the bandwidth-intensive broadband services we offer is maintained without compromising security."

Telge services are delivered to both corporate and residential customers using Ethernet and fiber to the building, so the company is deploying E320s with Gigabit Ethernet line modules. The E320 supports what Juniper claims is industry-leading Gigabit Ethernet density, which helps decrease the average deployment cost per subscriber. Scaling to 320 Gbits/sec of capacity and with support for up to 128,000 individual subscribers, the E320 provides an ideal platform for delivering multimedia broadband services such as IPTV, VoD, and IP telephony, say Juniper representatives.

"The E320 is the industry's first broadband services router to be designed specifically for the delivery of triple-play services to residential and corporate customers," adds Gert-Jan Schenk, vice president of operations, EMEA, Juniper Networks. "Coupled with the ISG-1000's innovative integration of IDP capabilities, we are providing Telge Energi with an agile, open, and scalable network and enabling them to deliver highly customizable services to their customers."
