April 4, 2006 Sunnyvale, CA -- Juniper Networks announced that T-Com, the fixed network division of Deutsche Telekom AG, is deploying the Juniper E-series broadband services routers and the company's T-series core routing platforms. The operator says the platforms will help it to expand and scale its IP network to support its advanced service offerings over VDSL.
The Juniper routing platforms to be deployed will be added to T-Com's existing installed base of Juniper E-, M- and T-series routing platforms, and will provide scalability and advanced service management capabilities for delivering IP-based video services to large numbers of subscribers. The operator is upgrading its network to VDSL2 [very fast digital subscriber line], with the first phase of deployment covering 10 cities throughout Germany.
For the new network segments with Ethernet aggregation, the E-series broadband services routers will be used to aggregate traffic from lower-level Ethernet switches. Working with the existing M- and T-series platforms in the network, the newly deployed T-series platforms will provide advanced IP/MPLS capabilities to efficiently distribute traffic in the network core.
"T-Com is building one of the world's most advanced networks to deliver IPTV, video-on-demand, and other advanced services to customers throughout Germany," comments Eddie Minshull, executive vice president of worldwide field operations at Juniper Networks. "We are very pleased T-Com has again chosen Juniper Networks to secure and assure its network. This is yet another great example of the key role Juniper Networks plays in IPTV networks worldwide."
