CPCNet Chooses Juniper Networks to Boost VPN Services in Greater China

Greater China Internet Solutions Provider Opts for Scalable MPLS Platform to Profitably Deliver Customized Services

SUNNYVALE, Calif., August 5, 2003 - Juniper Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq: JNPR) today announced that CPCNet, a leading telecom and Internet service provider in the Greater China region, will expand its Greater China virtual private network (VPN) service by leveraging state-of-the-art IP routing solutions from Juniper Networks.

CPCNet, a CITIC Pacific company (SEHK: 267), has deployed the Juniper Networks M-series platforms for its TrueCONNECT private corporate network, providing a robust and scalable IP/MPLS foundation to support the reliable delivery of multiple services catering to the different communication needs of corporate customers and enterprises of various sizes.

"Nowadays, CPCNet's customers are relying more and more on TrueCONNECT to link their geographically distributed businesses, hence the unique benefits of proven reliability and scalability are of paramount importance. Juniper Networks M-series platform met our requirements," said Stephen Ho, CPCNet's Chief Executive. "The MPLS infrastructure upgrade demonstrates our company's commitment to provide our customers with high- quality and professional network services including enhanced voice, video, and data solutions over a quality network platform. This will ensure they have easy access to these advanced features in most areas throughout the Greater China region." The MPLS-optimized architecture also enables the transport of Frame Relay and ATM traffic over Layer 2 VPNs, ensuring support for both legacy traffic and new IP services over a single IP/MPLS network. This promotes network efficiency and scalability in order to take advantage of the growing demand for IP services in the Greater China region.

The Juniper Networks platforms are supporting TrueCONNECT, an end-to-end managed network, connecting Hong Kong, Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Dongguan, Suzhou, Dalian, Xiamen, Taipei, and other key provinces. It leverages MPLS technology to provide a wide range of quality data, voice, video, and fax services to customers in those provinces. More Points of Presence (POPs) will be completed within 2003.

Recently, research firm IDC predicted that IP-VPN services in Asia Pacific would grow by 50 percent over the next 18 months, propelled in part by companies moving enterprise applications online. By partnering with Juniper Networks, CPCNet is offering the latest MPLS-based solutions to business users in the fast-growing Greater China market.

"The choice made by CPCNet reinforces Juniper Networks commitment to helping service providers employ new services rapidly," said Eric Yu, vice president, Greater China, Juniper Networks. "This strategy, articulated in the Model for Integrated Network Transformation (MINT), is winning support from Asian service providers, such as CPCNet, who are looking to meet the growing demand spurred by China's entry into the WTO and to differentiate themselves by cost-effectively creating customized service offerings."
