Juniper Networks Inc., a provider of trusted infrastructures for the New Public Network, announced new M-series and T-series router deployments at four Internet2 GigaPops (Gigabit points of presence).
Internet2, led by more than 200 U.S.-based universities working in partnership with industry and government, is developing and deploying advanced network applications and technologies for accelerating the creation of tomorrow's Internet. Juniper Networks partners with Qwest Communications to provide research and education customers with a single point of purchase for both leading-edge services and routers, along with several service and support programs for the Internet2 community.
With Juniper Networks routers deployed in the Abilene Network backbone, GigaPoPs, and individual campuses, researchers have access to a nationwide network that is capable of supporting cutting-edge research applications, such as HDTV over IP, data mining, 3D visualization, and telemicroscopy. These latest GigaPoP router deployments include: the Front Range GigaPoP in Colorado, the New York State Education Research Network (NYSERNet), the Pacific Northwest GigaPop, and the Texas GigaPoP. These GigaPoPs serve the university and research members in their respective regions.
Internet2's Abilene network is an advanced backbone network that connects the GigaPoP regional network aggregation points. The Abilene network is currently being upgraded to OC-192 with Juniper Networks' T-series routers, creating the most advanced and far-reaching research and education network in the world. The GigaPoPs serve as high-performance Internet connection points for universities and research centers in the regions they serve.
