DECEMBER 2, 2009 -- Juniper Networks says that Blink Communications, a data communications service provider that delivers fiber-based, high-bandwidth services for some of the largest organizations in North America, has deployed Juniper Networks MX Series Universal Edge Routers for its next-generation network. The new infrastructure is designed to enable Blink Communications to offer new, cost-effective, network-based services and create a foundation for next-generation Ethernet service offerings throughout Blink's client base.

Blink Communications selected Juniper's MX240 and MX960 routers to upgrade its legacy systems to more reliably deliver Virtual Private Network (VPN) services at both Layer 2 (data) and Layer 3 (network), Juniper asserts.

“To enhance the exceptional level of service our customers have come to expect, Blink Communications chose a cost-effective, long-term, carrier-grade platform,” said Troy Hare, president and COO, Blink Communications. “Juniper Networks routers and the Junos operating system allow us to effectively scale and grow our business and services offerings, while continuing to differentiate ourselves from our competitors. The MX Series routers improve our network performance dramatically, and we're gaining operational simplicity and reduced network management costs with Junos running across our service delivery network.”

Hare also notes, “We estimate the MX Series to be 30 percent more power efficient and to consume 40 percent less rack space than its nearest competitors, which helps Blink make a positive impact on the environment.”
