Today's service provider networks are under incredible pressure to deliver it all — blazing fast speed, assured bandwidth for all types of applications, flexible scale and perhaps hardest of all, an economically viable network architecture.

The key to the solution lies not in simply adding more bigger, faster routers or a circuit network — neither approach goes far enough. In fact, a real, meaningful solution calls for new thinking where it matters most — in the core.

Which is why Juniper Networks is pleased to announce the Converged Supercore, a totally new approach that gives the core unprecedented scale, simplicity and operational efficiency by converging the optical and packet layers of the network. It's a solution only possible with Juniper innovations on three very important fronts:

  • Silicon — The Junos Express chipset has been purpose-built to economically and efficiently transport massive amounts of data and is the fastest and most scalable chipset in the industry.
  • Systems — The new PTX Series, a Converged Supercore switch is built with native MPLS switching and optical integration — a first.
  • Software — Still unmatched in the industry, Junos is the single operating system that allows you to manage it all. And the Converged Supercore gives you a single network management system to manage the optical and packet layers.

This is a comprehensive solution that puts service providers back in control of the network while leveraging existing investments, regardless of vendor. Now services can dictate network connectivity — and not the other way around.
