New Zealand Service Provider Enhances Broadband Network with Juniper Networks

TelstraClear Upgrades with High-Performance E320 Broadband Services Routers and Session and Resource Control Solution

SUNNYVALE, Calif., July 31, 2008 - Juniper Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: JNPR), the leader in high-performance networking, today announced that New Zealand service provider TelstraClear has upgraded its broadband network capacity and enhanced its service delivery capabilities with Juniper Networks E320 Broadband Services Routers and C-series Controllers. The upgrade ensures adequate capacity to address TelstraClear's fast-growing subscriber base and to support its increasingly rich mix of residential broadband access, business services and other advanced IP applications. TelstraClear is using the C-series Controllers to manage service provisioning over a wide array of access types, including cable and retail and wholesale DSL.

"We previously had multiple teams managing our systems - one for hardware, another for the operating system software and a third responsible for network applications. With the Session and Resource Control solution, a single team manages the entire system," said Peter Ambrose, manager of Design and Planning, TelstraClear. "We chose the Juniper solution for its superior subscriber management scalability and ease of administration. The E320 has excellent subscriber density, and the C-series - which are a logical upgrade from our existing SDX deployment - deliver substantial scale with ease of manageability."

This latest upgrade builds upon TelstraClear's existing deployment of E- and M-series routers and SDX-300 Service Delivery System to deliver significantly more capacity and increasingly sophisticated broadband services policy management. The Juniper Networks Session and Resource Control portfolio is a carrier-grade policy and control solution that enables modification of network resources in response to real-time subscriber and application requests to deliver of high value differentiated services. The Session and Resource Control portfolio includes the widely deployed SDX-300 Service Delivery System and the Steel-Belted Radius Service Provider Edition platform, as well as a family of SRC software modules and the high-performance C-series Controllers.

The E320 router supports high subscriber density, high system capacity and high-density Gigabit Ethernet and 10 Gigabit Ethernet interfaces, enabling TelstraClear to effectively support the high bandwidth, large scale demands of next-generation IP-based services. In the two years since it was introduced, more than 1,600 E320 platforms have been shipped to more than 70 service provider customers worldwide.

"Policy management is fast becoming a key requirement for innovative service providers such as TelstraClear as they seek to monetize their networks by enabling an increasing range of new services," said Shaun Page, vice president of Australia and New Zealand for Juniper Networks. "We are pleased to be working with TelstraClear to provide a high-performance network infrastructure and policy management solution, which will help accelerate service model innovation and fuel profitable growth."
