Juniper Delivers New Products to Optimize Ethernet Networks
New Ethernet Services Cards for M- and T-series Deliver Advanced Ethernet Capabilities in Modular Form Factor
- Advanced QoS: The Ethernet Service cards feature fine-grained QoS, intelligent oversubscription and hierarchical queuing capabilities at the interface level, which improves port density, can reduce costs and enables service providers to ensure services receive the appropriate level of service, regardless of traffic conditions. This enables providers to offer a variety of services-such as VLAN/transparent LAN, L2/L3 VPNs, Voice over IP and Video over IP-over Ethernet, with guaranteed SLAs.
- Service flexibility: Juniper is an industry leader in both MPLS and VPLS, and the new Ethernet Services cards integrate directly with Juniper Networks routing platforms and JUNOS operating system, providing a wide range of services over Ethernet interfaces.
- Performance at scale: The new Ethernet Service cards leverage the M- and T- series' distributed architecture and feature on-board processing, ensuring that performance scales with the addition of interfaces.
- Simple, non-disruptive migration: Because the new products are available today for the entire installed base of M- and T-Series, service providers can immediately take advantage of the latest Ethernet technology without the cost and risks associated with introducing a new platform or operating system to the network. Further, software programmability ensures Juniper Networks platforms can easily adapt to address future requirements. The Juniper Networks solution also enables interworking between ATM, Frame Relay, VPN and Ethernet networks, ensuring a seamless migration from legacy technologies.
