Research and Education Networks

Research & Education (R&E) Networks facilitate massive collaboration as they connect universities and laboratories to one another and to cloud services and testbeds. Juniper is the equipment vendor of choice for R&E Networks around the world. Our equipment is built around custom ASICs and robust, carrier-proven software to meet the needs of data-intensive science applications without compromising performance or security. We take care of the complexities behind the scenes so researchers can focus on outcomes rather than network operations.

Sunet expects 4-fold capacity increase using one-third the power

Universities, researchers, and cultural institutions in Sweden need fast, reliable, and secure connectivity to collaborate nationally and internationally. To support that collaboration, Sunet, the Swedish University Computer Network, delivers advanced networking and other digital services with white-glove service.

As its data volumes and service portfolio grew, Sunet wanted to expand network capacity in a way that would be operationally efficient and environmentally sustainable. Sunet has designed its second-generation converged optical network, built on Juniper PTX Series Routers with integrated coherent optics. Sunet anticipates a $100,000 savings in router-related power costs—with quadruple the capacity.
