Juniper Networks Showcases SDX-300 Service Deployment System at Telexpo 2003

SDX Enables Service Providers to Create, Market, Deliver and Bill for New Revenue-Generating Business Services

BRAZIL, São Paulo, March 25, 2003 - Telexpo 2003 - Pavilion Red, Booth B21 - Juniper Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq: JNPR) is showcasing the SDX-300 Service Deployment System (SDX) at Telexpo 2003. The SDX-300 is designed to enable service providers and enterprises to rapidly create and deploy a host of new services, individualize and enhance their subscribers' experience, and at the same time retain full control of their underlying networks. This highly scalable, flexible, intelligent serviceware offering includes service creation, service activation, subscriber management, and accounting capabilities. The SDX-300 works in conjunction with Juniper Networks industry-leading E-series platform, which integrates carrier-class routing, broadband subscriber management services, and IP services in a single platform.

With the SDX, service providers can extend the life cycle of their capital equipment by adding new service offerings, which utilize their existing networking infrastructure. Enterprises are able to take advantage of new, more cost-effective IP-based services without the capital costs associated with building their own infrastructure. Examples of new services that can provide incremental revenue and an assured user experience include tiered Internet access, dynamic or scheduled bandwidth on demand, application-level Quality of Service (QoS), Virtual Private Networks (VPNs), Voice over IP (VoIP), and video conferencing.

The SDX is designed to enable service providers to share control of outsourced network services by distributing power to enterprise IT managers and enables service providers to generate additional revenue from existing enterprise connections including DSL, leased line, and Ethernet. The SDX communicates service changes to intelligent edge points and then supplies the service usage information required for customer billing. The product supports standards such as COPS, RADIUS, LDAP and CORBA for creating flow-through integration within existing OSS environments. Using the WEB-based portal of the SDX, IT managers can dynamically change the service characteristics for their enterprise connections.

"With the SDX, we are providing an opportunity for our service provider customers to generate incremental revenue by offering new customized services to their existing customer base," said Tim Lambie, vice president, Latin America Sales, Juniper Networks. "The SDX enables services to be custom designed for each market, thereby increasing their return on investment. The SDX is one of many solutions in the Juniper Networks product portfolio that supports the Model for Integrated Network Transformation (MINT), a framework for the delivery of enhanced services."
