CPCNet Launches Breakthrough Managed Secure Remote Access Service

First MPLS-based Managed SSL VPN in Greater China Using M-series Multi-Service Platform and RA500 Security Appliance

SUNNYVALE, Calif., April 20, 2005 - Juniper Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: JNPR) today announced that CPCNet Hong Kong Limited, a subsidiary of CITIC Pacific, has launched a managed Virtual Private Networking (VPN) service, one of the first of this type of managed VPN in Asia, based on Juniper Networks Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) and Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) technologies. This new SSL/MPLS VPN service is implemented using Juniper Networks M-series multi-service edge routing platforms and award-winning NetScreen RA500 secure access appliances.

"Our VPN infrastructure has been built using Juniper Networks equipment," said Stephen Ho, CEO of CPCNet. "Now we are leveraging Juniper's carrier-class and network security expertise in the RA500 and the M-series to provide advanced multi-service IP connectivity and secure remote access through the latest SSL VPN technology suitable for all scales of enterprise, from small to large corporations."

Recognized as the best SSL VPN product of 2004 by China Computer World, the Juniper Networks NetScreen RA500 is a secure remote access appliance that leverages the robust security design of the industry-leading Instant Virtual Extranet platform including enterprise strength authentication; authorization and auditing (AAA); comprehensive endpoint defense; and a core security architecture that has been audited by leading third-party security experts, such as TruSecure Corporation, Cryptography Research, Inc., and has been certified by ICSA Labs.

According to Infonetics Research, Inc., Juniper Networks is the market share leader in SSL VPN, with 42 percent market share in the fourth quarter of 2004.

The Juniper Networks M-series multi-service edge routing platform is designed to offer secure, scalable and highly reliable IP services in high-speed networks. The platform reduces time to market for new IP services by lowering capital costs, simplifying operational support, as well as streamlining design, testing and network implementation processes.

"Our RA500 secure access appliance continues to be highly successful since its launch in August 2004," said Eric Yu, vice president of Greater China for Juniper Networks. "It is an industry award winner and CPCNet's breakthrough VPN service is a prime example of the RA500's role in providing secure and assured access to small and medium businesses. As well, the ability of our M-series to provide multiple network services on a single platform ensures that service providers such as CPCNet can minimize operational overhead and focus on providing value-added offerings to their customers."
