Juniper Networks Opens New Delhi Office

Growing Global Presence Positions Juniper Networks to Capture India's High-growth IP Infrastructure Market

Sunnyvale, CA - July 14, 2000 - Juniper Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq:JNPR), a leading provider of next-generation IP infrastructure systems, today announced the expansion of its global sales, services, and support capabilities into India with the opening of an office in New Delhi. Operating as Juniper Networks India Private Ltd., the new office is the sixth Juniper Networks office in the Asia-Pacific region.

Juniper Networks was founded in 1996 by Pradeep Sindhu, along with two other industry-known founders, Dennis Ferguson and Bjorn Liencres, in response to the enormous optical bandwidth explosion in the world's Internet service providers' core infrastructure. Juniper Networks converts optical bandwidth into scalable, differentiable IP services using integrated ASICs for packet based forwarding and JUNOS routing software to meet the requirements for operations and control in the world's largest networks. The multi-gigabit M-series Internet backbone routers deliver Internet-based traffic up to ten times faster than other products on the market. The M160 router, introduced in March 2000, was the first router to deliver 10 Gbps at full speed. Juniper Networks global expansion coincides with very high growth in the multi-gigabit router market. According to Dataquest, this market worldwide is valued at $810.3 million USD in 1999 and forecasted to climb to $8.2 billion USD by 2003 at a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 78.6 percent.

"To achieve our worldwide market share objectives, Juniper Networks recognized the need to establish a strong sales, service, and support presence in India, where growth in the Internet infrastructure market is among the highest in the world," said Pradeep Sindhu, Chief Technical Officer and Founder, Juniper Networks. "We believe that our regional and local service provider customers will benefit from our presence in India, as will our multinational service provider customers such as Cable & Wireless, Qwest Communications, and UUNET."

Juniper Networks also serves the Asia-Pacific region from offices in Hong Kong, Beijing, Sydney, Seoul, and Kuala Lumpur.
