Versatel Selects Juniper Networks for First Dutch Triple Play Over DSL Network

E-, M- and T-Series Routing Platforms Selected for Reliable Broadband Service Offerings

SUNNYVALE, Calif., November 7, 2005 - Juniper Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: JNPR) today announced that Dutch service provider Versatel has selected Juniper Networks routing platforms for its new broadband services network. As the first service provider in the Netherlands to offer advanced voice, video and data - or Triple Play - services over DSL, Versatel is providing its ADSL customers with services that include Voice over IP (VoIP), broadcast TV, video on demand, and televised live sporting events, such as national league soccer.

The network upgrade is based on an end-to-end Juniper Networks solution consisting of E-, M- and T-series routing platforms deployed across 21 locations, and installed, integrated and maintained by Telindus, Juniper's local partner. The M- and T-series deliver advanced IP/MPLS capabilities in the core, and the E-series Broadband Services Routers provide unicasting and subscriber management capabilities at the edge. The Juniper Networks routing platforms deliver the industry-leading scalability, reliability and performance required to ensure the quality of Versatel's services.

Aad Beekhuis, COO of Versatel, said, "IPTV for consumers is a totally new market, and we needed to ensure that our offering is of the highest quality from the start. We chose the Juniper Networks solution to provide best-in-class reliability and performance, avoiding transmission bottlenecks. With this solution, we are also able to offer advanced features and services that will differentiate our Triple Play service offering from other competitive services. The close partnership between Juniper and Telindus was the icing on the cake for us."

The Juniper Networks routing platforms provide a range of Triple Play-focused capabilities that enable operators to differentiate their Triple Play offerings with innovative, user-centric services, features and quality of service guarantees beyond those of a basic Triple Play service. With the Juniper solution, Versatel can assure the quality and reliability of all its bundled services, offer advanced services like video on demand, and also have the potential to add more services in the future.

"Versatel is a leader in the Triple Play space, and recognized the need to deliver advanced services with the quality and reliability that their customers require," said Eddie Minshull, vice president of operations, EMEA, Juniper Networks. "Our routing platforms are optimized to deliver advanced triple-play services with quality and reliability, and we're pleased to be involved in enabling Versatel's ground-breaking IP network."
