Juniper Networks Federal J-Partner Program Gains Momentum with Top-Tier Partner Selections

"Elite" Status Awarded to Ten Federal J-Partners in Recognition of Superior Commitment and Performance as Government-Focused IT Solution Providers

SUNNYVALE, Calif., January 30, 2006 - Juniper Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: JNPR) today announced that the Juniper Networks federal J-Partner program has gained significant momentum since the program was officially launched in November of 2004. Average per partner revenue has increased significantly over the previous year, and ten federal partners recently achieved "Elite" status - the program's top tier. These Elite partners join several national systems integrators and service providers already in the federal program. This announcement comes on the heels of Juniper's federal J-Partner program winning best Federal Channel Strategy at the Government Solutions Summit in December.

"These milestones demonstrate that our federal channel program's value-based, qualifications-driven strategy is producing real rewards for our customers and partners," said Tom Gillman, director of federal channels for Juniper Networks. "These results show that we are delivering on our commitment to recruit the highest quality performers in the government market, thus ensuring that our customers have access to a select group of top systems integrators, resellers, and service providers. Those partners with the greatest value add continue to capture and profit from new business opportunities."

The federal J-Partner program is designed to provide alternative best-in-class IP network and security solutions to federal government channel partners, including systems integrators, resellers, and service providers. J-Partner segments partners into three tiers - Elite, Select and Reseller - with achievement of each tier depending on the Juniper Networks certifications they earn and the solutions in which they specialize. Partners with the highest levels of certification and specialization gain enhanced product access, financial incentives, programs, and support.

In September of last year, Juniper Networks awarded Elite status to information technology solutions and services provider, Technica Corporation. Technica completed certification requirements in the specialization areas of advanced security and enterprise networking solutions. For more than three years, Technica and Juniper Networks have teamed to provide highly-scalable networks to organizations such as the Department of Defense, including Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA), and other federal agencies.

"Juniper Networks' dedication to supporting its federal J-Partners with in-depth sales and engineering training was a key factor in our pursuit of Elite status," said Miguel Collado, president of Technica Corporation. "The additional benefit of Elite status, from outstanding product access and support to solutions-based programs, furthers our ability to provide best-in-class technology solutions to our customers."

Other federal J-Partners who have recently achieved Elite status include Apollo Information Systems Corp.; Merlin Technical Solutions; NH&A, LLC; Onix Networking; The Presidio Corporation; SMS Data Products Group, Inc.; Stealth Network Communications; Sword & Shield; and True North Solutions.
