Telstraclear Deploys Juniper Networks Routers for New Nationwide VPN Services Delivery

Ericsson Supplies ERX and M-series Routers That Combine To Provide Secure and Reliable IP Infrastructure

Sunnyvale, CA - August 6, 2002 - Juniper Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq: JNPR), a leading provider of trusted infrastructures for the New Public Network, today announced that TelstraClear, New Zealand's second-largest full service communications company, is deploying additional Juniper Networks ERX Edge and M-series Routers as part of the expansion of its Private IP broadband and metro networks. With the Juniper Networks routers, TelstraClear is expanding its high-speed service coverage to several New Zealand centers. Juniper Networks worldwide distribution partner, Ericsson, is the prime integrator for this IP infrastructure solution.

TelstraClear's extensive customer base includes New Zealand's largest postal and financial institutions. The Private IP service seamlessly connects company data networks. TelstraClear selected the ERX router for this application because of its full support of the Martini draft standards for transparent Virtual Local Area Networks (VLANs) over Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS). In addition, TelstraClear is also leveraging the ERX virtual router functionality to provide wholesale access and Internet peering functions.

"By widening the reach of Private IP, even more businesses will have access to a service which moves data, voice and multimedia over an affordable ultra-high speed network," says Thana Velummylum, chief of Customer Operations at TelstraClear. "While it takes a range of sophisticated systems to provide Private IP, it's delightfully simple for customers - just plug in and go."

"TelstraClear has again chosen Ericsson/Juniper Networks to expand its broadband and metro networks, giving it the ability to deliver revenue generating services to its customers. We are confident that these new services will be successful and are fully dedicated to supporting TelstraClear's continued growth and development," said Adam Judd, vice president, Asia Pacific, Juniper Networks.
