September 3, 2002 - China Netcom, one of the largest telecommunications companies in China, will deploy Juniper Networks' ERX edge routers as part of its network expansion across the Inner Mongolia province of China. The ERX router is an integrated carrier-class edge router that combines both circuit aggregation and subscriber management functionality. China Netcom selected Juniper Networks ERX router for its ability to enhance existing network bandwidth, scalability, and functionality of its leased line and asynchronous DSL capacity.

The ERX router provides China Netcom with wire-speed performance of IP routing and next-generation broadband services such as streaming media, virtual private networks, and service level agreements (SLAs) while maintaining quality of service (QoS). The ERX router combines subscriber management functions with carrier-class routing into one platform. The platform enables China Netcom to provide one of the industry's highest port densities in an Internet edge device-more than ten times the physical density of current edge offerings.

"We selected Juniper Networks because of their experience and proven technology," said Gao Dongguang, director, Engineering Data Bureau, China Netcom Inner Mongolia. "Juniper Networks has a strong track record within the China Netcom organization of helping to achieve substantial cost savings with the feature rich, scalable ERX Edge Router. Our decision to deploy the ERX router enables China Netcom to provide enhanced services to our customers across the Inner Mongolian province."
