JANUARY 10, 2007 -- Guangdong Telecom, a China Telecom subsidiary, has deployed Juniper Networks' (search for Juniper Networks) TX Matrix routing platforms to upgrade its core network to multi-terabit capacity. The TX Matrix deployment is intended to provide the additional capacity required for Guangdong Telecom to meet growing subscriber demand for higher-performance broadband and advanced multiplay services including VoIP, IPTV, video conferencing, and video on demand. Guangdong Telecom serves millions of subscribers throughout its province.
Guangdong Telecom has also been deploying Juniper Networks E-series Broadband Services Routers extensively and consistently throughout its broadband edge network since 2001. Juniper Networks E-series are the primary component of Guangdong's broadband aggregation and subscriber management capabilities.
"By deploying the E-series at the network edge and the T-series, including TX Matrix, at the core, Guangdong Telecom has optimized its network to support multiplay service with high performance, quality, reliability and scale," said Eric Yu, vice president of greater China for Juniper Networks.
Juniper's TX Matrix platform enables Guangdong Telecom to combine multiple T640 core routers to form a single multi-terabit routing platform without extensive modifications or having to introduce a new operating system. The TX Matrix combines high density, rack-optimized platforms with modular software and the ability to interconnect increasing numbers of chassis as a single routing entity, ensuring both high capacity and high efficiency, says Juniper.
"China has been experiencing tremendous Internet growth in recent years and Guangdong Telecom's decision to expand with TX Matrix is based on the conclusion that our multi-terabit routing solution is advanced, reliable, and real-world proven," added Yu. "Service providers today are demanding uncompromising reliability even as they seek superior levels of performance and manageability for their roadmaps. Our TX Matrix is simply the best multi-terabit solution deployed in the market today."
