Leading Korean Service Provider Boosts Value-Added Offerings with Juniper Networks

KT Deploys E-Series and SDX-300 Service Deployment System to Expand Broadband Capacity and Services

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Nov. 2, 2004 - Juniper Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq: JNPR) today announced that KT has selected Juniper Networks ERX-1440 Edge Routing Platforms and the SDX-300 Service Deployment System for the next phase of its expansion of value-added broadband services.

"After a rigorous selection process, I am pleased to announce that KT has chosen Juniper Networks technology for this phase of our broadband expansion," said KC Park, director, Internet Planning Division, Internet Planning Team, KT Corporation. "One of the key challenges we faced was providing a rich suite of services to our customers with an easy-to-use interface. We were most impressed by the extensive subscriber-management features enabled by the SDX. The new solution means KT customers will not only enjoy reliable, high-performance IP services, but can also manage those services themselves, on demand, with a single sign-on process."

The deployment gives KT both the capacity to service additional broadband customers and the ability to enable customers to dynamically manage their service provisioning. KT can then provide a new suite of value-added, self-manageable IP services to its customer base with single sign-on via unified authentication and authorization based on RADIUS and DHCP.

KT, formerly Korea Telecom, is one of South Korea's largest telecommunications providers with over 6 million domestic broadband subscribers and is regarded as a global leader in ADSL services. Its portfolio also includes fixed line and mobile communications. KT currently uses the E-series for broadband aggregation. The new deployment will further extend this infrastructure with additional capacity and new features, giving KT the option to deploy new revenue-generating, value-added offerings such as dynamic bandwidth provisioning, centralized content and traffic filtering and centralized time-based or volume-based access management.

Juniper Networks E-series routing platforms offer a complete edge routing solution for IP-optimized carriers and utilize the modular, fault-tolerant JUNOSe operating system to deliver performance, reliability and service differentiation to both business and consumer customers. The ERX-1440 offers high port density, low power consumption and fully redundant access routing and edge aggregation at extremely high volumes of traffic at full wire speed via 40-Gbps switch route processor (SRP) modules.

The Juniper Networks SDX-300 Service Deployment System is a robust, customizable application that enables service providers to rapidly create and deploy a wide variety of new Internet services to hundreds of thousands of subscribers. These advanced IP services, such as video-on-demand, IP television or integrated voice and data, can be offered over a range of broadband access technologies, including DSL, cable, Ethernet, Wi-Fi 802.11 wireless hotspots, SONET and fixed wireless. Also, working in conjunction with Juniper Networks routing platforms, the SDX software enables subscriber managers to activate service offerings as they need them and automatically provision the network to deliver those services in real-time. The SDX system is dynamic, comprised of standardized application programming interfaces (APIs) which can be customized, extended, and integrated with other systems, ensuring quick implementation and time-to-revenue, and reliable service delivery.

"Commodity Internet bandwidth is commonplace throughout this region," said Tim Kang, vice president, Korea, Juniper Networks. "By utilizing our SDX system in conjunction with our E-series edge routing platforms, KT is now able to differentiate its business with value-added IP services for targeted vertical markets. We are extremely pleased KT recognizes the value of our products, and we are excited to be part of this broadband network transformation."
