"We plan to add additional nodes as international peering routers in the first quarter of this year with further expansion of the network by mid 2003," concluded Mr. Osorio.
"We chose Juniper Networks technology because of its superior flexibility that enables us to deploy broadband remote access server (BRAS) and Edge Routing services from a single platform with a high performance and availability, while the excellence of Siemens system integration and support ensures a highly reliable and stable network operation," says Rafael Pereira, TDP's director of network development.
