MAY 9, 2007 -- Bayanat Al-oula, a new service provider in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, has selected Juniper Networks Inc. (search for Juniper Networks) to build its IP/MPLS-based next-generation network based upon Juniper Networks M- and T-series multiservice edge and core routers.
The new network is designed to enable premium multiplay services such as voice, data, video, and IPTV services throughout the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for both residential and business users. Juniper is also providing professional services to support the design and implementation of Bayanat's network.
"The new network is a significant investment in the company's future, as it will be the platform that underpins our entire growing portfolio of IP services," said Abdulmajeed Elshawa, CEO, at Bayanat. "We have carefully evaluated various routing solutions from a number of world-class vendors, and Juniper's technology has consistently delivered unmatched reliability, performance, and flexibility in a cost-effective package. The all-round superiority of the Juniper platforms, and the fact that the M- and T-series share the same JUNOS operating system and architecture, persuaded Bayanat to implement a single-vendor strategy in the core and at the service edge."
"The Middle East is a very competitive marketplace, with numerous providers vying to attract subscribers with a wide range of services to the home and the office," said Gert-Jan Schenk, vice president of operations, EMEA for Juniper Networks. "Quality, performance, and reliability differentiate successful service providers, so the total trust Bayanat is prepared to put in Juniper's routing technology and networking expertise is highly gratifying. We look forward to demonstrating that its confidence in us is fully justified."
