Smile Internet Gold Deploys Juniper Networks M-series Routing Platforms in Network Backbone

M-series Enables Leading Israeli Service Provider to Support Broadband Services with High Reliability and Performance

SUNNYVALE, Calif., August 23, 2005 - Juniper Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: JNPR) today announced that Israeli Internet and communications service provider smile Internet Gold has deployed Juniper Networks M-series routing platforms in the core of its broadband network. The routing platforms, supplied by elite J-Partner Netcom, are being used to expand the network and to provide business and residential customers with a range of high-performance, secure and reliable broadband services, including Internet access and voice over IP (VoIP).

M-series multiservice routers allow service providers to deploy new income-generating services quickly and efficiently. The M-series high-performance platform reliably supports Layer 2 services, including ATM, Ethernet and Frame Relay; full Layer 3 services; and a combination of firewall and data encryption.

Max Bloomberg, CTO of smile, said: "We chose Juniper's routers because of their excellent reliability. At such a critical point in our network infrastructure, we could not tolerate crashes in service, and therefore the natural choice was the reliable routers of Juniper Networks."

Smile's purchase follows Juniper Networks' proven success in providing infrastructure and security solutions in advanced IP networks for other communication service providers in Israel.

"The smile communications network is positioned in the technological vanguard with the advanced equipment used in its IP network," said Eddie Minshull, vice president of operations for EMEA.
