Juniper Networks Outlines Vision For Industry Transformation
Model for Integrated Network Transformation Provides Framework For Industry Recovery
- A highly scalable and dependable Bit Transport and Connectivity layer for assured packet delivery;
- A Resource Segmentation layer, which enables scalable management of users as aggregated groups;
- A Packet Processing layer for the composition of enhanced, custom user experiences through packet treatments including filtering, prioritization, encryption, etc.
- A Policy and Control layer, enabling dynamic user customization of their services and integration with provider business systems.
Expanded Product Portfolio Supports The MINT
- ATM2 Physical Interface Cards (PICs) provide rich functionality to support the consolidation of Frame Relay and ATM services across the Bit Transport and Connectivity Layer. These next generation ATM interfaces are available now as 2-port OC-12, 1-port OC-12, and 2-port OC-3 PICs, and add path and connection shaping to the M-series and T-series platforms.
- A new family of physical interface cards - Q-PICs, based on the latest Juniper Networks ASIC program, the Q Performance Processor. These M- and T-series PICs augment the Packet Processing layer with highly granular queuing, ultra-dense multi-level channelization, multilink channel bonding, rich instrumentation, and a full complement of queuing techniques. Q-PICs available in Q1 2003: 1-port channelized OC12, 10-port channelized E1 interface, and 4-port channelized DS3.
- MPLS VPN enhancements to the Resource Segmentation Layer include: support for Layer 2 VPN and Pseudo Wire services across all platforms and for all access network types and IPv6 Layer 3 VPNs. Also announced today: production implementation of the emerging Virtual Private LAN Service (VPLS) standard for Ethernet services in 2003.
- IPv6 enhancements to the Bit Transport and Connectivity layer: IPv6 over MPLS - based on IETF standards, this capability provides additional techniques to ease the transition from IPv4 to IPv6; production availability of the OSPFv3 standard, complementing previously announced IPv6 routing protocol support in BGP, IS-IS, and RIP. Juniper Networks is also announcing that the ERX platform will, in 2003, offer the industry's first IPv6 Broadband Remote Access Server (BRAS).
- Also announced today, at the Policy and Control layer: Juniper Networks intention to extend the SDX-300 Service Deployment System to control all platforms
