Juniper Networks Service-Built Edge Delivers Profitable New Service Models

Enhancements Designed for Rapid and Scalable Service Innovation

SUNNYVALE, Calif., June 30, 2003 - Juniper Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq: JNPR) today announced enhancements to the Service-Built Edge portfolio designed to cost-effectively scale and support new services, while also improving the profitability of traditional services. As network service providers transform their businesses to address disruptive revenue trends and eroding margins, the Service-Built Edge features unprecedented operational automation and rich service capabilities that enable new service models to both new and existing markets.

"With the Juniper Networks Service-Built Edge, we have been able to transform our broadband service offering from a flat fee structure to a pay-per-usage model through dynamic bandwidth allocation," said Berit Svendsen, chief technology officer at Telenor. "The Juniper Networks technology enables us to offer our customers more flexibility in the type of services they require, while keeping our operational costs to a minimum. This has resulted not only in an increase of our total broadband subscriber base, but more significantly has increased the average service revenues per subscriber."

"Broadband edge technology is the most critical of all infrastructure elements for service provider profitability," said Tom Nolle, president and CEO, CIMI Corporation. "With Juniper's new Service-Build Edge enhancements, Juniper is, first, building on an established superior broadband edge strategy, and, second, dealing with some of the critical issues in broadband edge networking today, including service assurance and IPv6. The combination of Service-Built Edge and Juniper's overall Model of Integrated Network Transformation (MINT) creates a powerful and flexible infrastructure solution that is applicable to every carrier service and profit model we've seen."
