AUGUST 3, 2009 -- Juniper Networks Inc. (search Lightwave for Juniper) says that its M Series Routers and EX Series Ethernet Switches have been deployed in the third generation of the Trans-Eurasia Information Network (TEIN3) to improve scale and efficiency while facilitating the transition to IPv6.

TEIN3 provides a dedicated high-capacity Internet network for research and education communities across 11 countries throughout the Asia-Pacific region. The Juniper infrastructure will enable TEIN3 to deliver advanced services such as videoconferencing, virtual classrooms, and remote consulting while lowering total cost of ownership.

TEIN3 enables more than 30 million users in 4,000 research and educational organizations across the region to participate in joint projects such as the fight against malaria, forecasting extreme weather conditions, and improving health via telemedicine. The TEIN3 project is coordinated by DANTE, a not-for-profit organization that operates regional networking projects in Europe, Latin America, and the southern Mediterranean rim.

Additionally TEIN3 connects researchers with their peers in Europe and other parts of the world via linkage to GEANT2. Asian locations already connected include Australia, China, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Laos, Malaysia, Pakistan, the Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam. There are plans to further expand the TEIN infrastructure for connectivity in the South Asian subcontinent.

"Researchers rely on TEIN3 to transfer tremendous amounts of data concerning very important projects ranging from preventing disease to astrophysics, so its absolutely critical the network delivers high levels of scale, performance and reliability," said Dai Davies, general manager of DANTE. "We decided to go with Juniper because in our experience Juniper does what it says it will do."
