Hong Kong-based University Scales Secure Routing with Juniper Networks M-series Router

Lingnan University Deploys High-Performance Network Infrastructure Powered by JUNOS Software; Ensures Continuous Systems and Automated Operations to Fuel Business Agility

SUNNYVALE, Calif., August 14, 2008 - Juniper Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: JNPR), the leader in high-performance networking, today announced that Hong Kong's Lingnan University has boosted the capacity and security of its student services network with the Juniper Networks M-series multi-service edge routing platform.

The high-performance network infrastructure provides faculty and students fast, reliable and secure access to the Internet and campus resources - including coursework materials and administrative functions - from its Student Hostel. The M-series router upgrades network capacity and empowers the University to handle a wide range of IP services at scale.

The University selected the M-series router for its performance and reliability, in addition to traffic filtering, rate control, operational versatility and low overhead delivered by JUNOS software, a single source-code base operating system.

"JUNOS software was the key to addressing our network requirements," said Dr Jeff McDonell, director of Information Technology Services Centre of Lingnan University. "It enabled our IT team to filter traffic and control rates at the core of our network with greater ease and flexibility."

The Juniper Networks M-series multi-service edge routing platforms are deployed in the world's largest networks, delivering advanced IP/MPLS edge routing services at scale. Constructed with clean separation between the control plane, forwarding plane and services plane, the M-series routers support multiple services without compromise on a single platform-maximizing revenue and minimizing operational and capital costs.

"Research and education institutions need fast, reliable and secure networks that empower students and faculty to be more productive and successful," said Eric Yu, vice president, Greater China, Juniper Networks. "Both the M-series router and JUNOS software deliver a powerful, proven combination of high-performance infrastructure with highly available and scalable software services, ideal for the demanding environments of higher learning organizations such as Lingnan University."
