SINGAPORE - November 08, 2007 - Juniper Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: JNPR), the leader in high-performance networking, today announced the Juniper Networks WXC application acceleration platform has won a Computerworld Singapore Readers' "Choice Award" in the WAN Accelerators category. Juniper representatives accepted the award last week at the 2007 Computerworld Readers' Choice Awards ceremony dinner in Singapore. Juniper's WXC application acceleration platforms help distributed enterprises accelerate application delivery over the WAN, more effectively leverage WAN investments and boost user productivity.

"Computerworld Readers' Choice Awards is in its 12th year and it is definitely the voice of the IT Community in Singapore," said Teng Fang Yih, editor of Computerworld Singapore. "Considered the Oscars of the IT industry, the Awards go to vendors that score well in the areas of price, performance, functionality and ease of use with their customers. We would like to congratulate Juniper Networks for its win in the Communications category, with the WXC WAN Accelerator. I'm sure this innovative product will have a long-lasting positive impact on the industry and we look forward to customers enjoying its benefits."

Juniper's WXC application acceleration platforms provide distributed enterprises with a scalable approach to accelerating the delivery of client/server and web-based business applications and services - including ERP, CRM, email and file services as well as voice, video and terminal services - over the WAN. Juniper's WXC platform improves application performance over the WAN by recognizing and eliminating redundant transmissions; accelerating TCP and application-specific protocols; prioritizing and allocating access to bandwidth; and ensuring high application availability at sites with multiple WAN links. The WXC platforms also include a broad set of management tools for monitoring and reporting on WAN and application performance.

"We're gratified that the Singapore networking community has recognized the merits of our WXC platforms," said Matt Kolon, Chief Technology Officer, Asia Pacific, for Juniper Networks. "Boosting WAN performance is an increasingly high priority for the island state's enterprises as they extend their footprint across the region and around the world. This ultimately helps our customers improve productivity and reduce costs."
