China Telecom Subsidiary Scales Core Network to Multi-Terabit Capacity with Juniper Networks T-series Routers

Guangdong Telecom Deploys Multi-Chassis TX Matrix to Upgrade Largest Core Nodes; Continues to Deploy E-series in Network Serving Tens of Millions of Multiplay Subscribers

SUNNYVALE, Calif., January 10, 2007 - Juniper Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: JNPR) today announced that Guangdong Telecom, a China Telecom subsidiary, has deployed Juniper Networks TX Matrix routing platforms to upgrade its core network to multi-terabit capacity. The TX Matrix deployment provides the additional capacity required for Guangdong Telecom to meet growing subscriber demand for higher performance broadband and advanced multiplay services including VoIP, IPTV, video conferencing and video-on-demand. Guangdong Telecom serves millions of subscribers throughout its province.

Guangdong Telecom has also been deploying Juniper Networks E-series Broadband Services Routers extensively and consistently throughout its broadband edge network since 2001. Juniper Networks E-series are the primary component of Guangdong's broadband aggregation and subscriber management capabilities-delivering the scalability, flexibility and reliability that enables Guangdong to introduce innovative new services quickly and effectively.

"By deploying the E-series at the network edge and the T-series, including TX Matrix, at the core, Guangdong Telecom has optimized its network to support multiplay service with high performance, quality, reliability and scale," said Eric Yu, vice president of Greater China for Juniper Networks. "The TX Matrix platform delivers unmatched system capacity without adding additional complexity and features unique capabilities that facilitate efficient distribution of video services through the core."

Juniper's TX Matrix platform enables Guangdong Telecom to combine multiple T640 core routers to form a single multi-terabit routing platform without extensive modifications or having to introduce a new operating system. The TX Matrix platform delivers multi-terabit scale in the smallest available footprint and protects customers' investments, enabling a lower total cost of ownership. The TX Matrix combines high density, rack-optimized platforms with modular, feature-rich software and the ability to interconnect increasing numbers of chassis as a single routing entity, ensuring both high capacity and high efficiency.

Building on a strong installed base of over 2,500 platforms deployed worldwide, Juniper Networks is committed to continuing to enhance the T-series in response to customer requirements. The most recent T-series enhancements include new, industry-leading point-to-multipoint (P2MP) JUNOS capabilities for efficient core video distribution and a new 4xOC-192 interface card that delivers unprecedented interoperability and service agility over optical transport and IP infrastructure. All Juniper Networks T-series leverage the JUNOS operating system, which, with its quarterly release schedule, ensures that customers receive updates and new features on a timely, predictable basis. This practice ensures consistent operations throughout the network, enabling network scale without disruption to the operating systems.

"China has been experiencing tremendous Internet growth in recent years and Guangdong Telecom's decision to expand with TX Matrix is based on the conclusion that our multi-terabit routing solution is advanced, reliable and real-world proven," added Yu. "Service providers today are demanding uncompromising reliability even as they seek superior levels of performance and manageability for their roadmaps. Our TX Matrix is simply the best multi-terabit solution deployed in the market today."
