Juniper Networks WXC Application Acceleration Platform Captures Network Computing's "Editor's Choice" Award for WAFS Devices

Platform Takes Home Prestigious Award for the Second Time in Two Years

SUNNYVALE, Calif., May 2, 2006 - Juniper Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: JNPR) today announced that its WXC™ line of wide-area network (WAN) application acceleration platforms has been chosen by CMP Media LLC's Network Computing as its Editor's Choice award recipient in its Wide Area File Services (WAFS) review. The award-winning Juniper Networks WXC 500 and WXC 250 appliances provide a comprehensive feature set to optimize WAN capacity while accelerating applications between corporate locations and branch offices, enabling faster response times and reducing bandwidth consumption.

"In our tests, Juniper's WXC WAN Acceleration Appliance came out on top," wrote Don MacVittie in Network Computing's review. "When you add in-depth reporting, reliability and ease of use on the user end, it stands out as the clear winner." MacVittie added, "During our tests, the device provided acceleration ratios as high as 15 times the baseline, and the difference in time saved transferring files between 'warm' cache hits and 'cold' uncached data access is astounding - an 11x multiplier for our monster 1-GB TIFF file."

The Juniper Networks WX™ and WXC application acceleration platforms provide distributed enterprises with a cost-effective solution for accelerating business applications over the WAN. Based on the unique WX framework, which integrates all the elements required to optimize application performance across wide-area links, the WX and WXC families help businesses maximize WAN investments and improve application response times for branch office users.

"This award substantiates our technology leadership in WAN optimization and our delivery of wide area file services with TCP and CIFS protocol acceleration. It also validates the value of integrating compression and caching, protocol acceleration and QoS with in-depth visibility and reporting."
