JUNE 27, 2007 -- China Telecom Shanghai says it has optimized its next-generation IP network, supporting IPTV and other multi-play applications, by deploying additional Juniper Networks' (search for Juniper Networks) TX Matrix and T640 core routing platforms.
The service provider, a wholly-owned subsidiary of China Telecom, first deployed the multi-chassis TX Matrix alongside existing Juniper Networks M-series multiservice routers and E-series edge routers in February 2006. The current expansion of its multi-terabit core network is designed to meet rapid subscriber and traffic growth, say China Telecom Shanghai representatives.
"A rich mix of advanced IP services is supporting China's continued economic boom," reports Eric Yu, Juniper's country manager for Greater China. "Chinese companies recognize the value that next-generation multiplay services bring and are eager to leverage more sophisticated and higher performance network applications--all of which drive traffic in the network core," he says. "The TX Matrix helps service providers such as China Telecom Shanghai address this demand with an agile, open, and customized multi-terabit core network that delivers high performance at optimal capital expense and overhead."
Shipping since April 2002, the T-series core routing platforms have an installed base of over 2,500 platforms worldwide across over 125 service provider production networks, according to Juniper representatives. The TX Matrix combines multiple T640 platforms to deliver multi-terabit scale. With the TX Matrix and the T1600, Juniper enables T-series customers to select the upgrade path optimized to their specific deployment requirements, protecting customers' investments and enabling a lower total cost of ownership, says the company.
