Juniper Networks Selected for Next-Generation Trans-Eurasia Information Network

M Series and EX Series to Connect over 30 Million Research and Education Users throughout Asia-Pacific

SUNNYVALE, Calif., August 3, 2009 -Juniper Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: JNPR), the leader in high-performance networking, today announced that its M Series Routers and EX Series Ethernet Switches have been deployed in the third generation of the Trans-Eurasia Information Network (TEIN3), greatly improving scale and efficiency while facilitating the transition to IPv6. TEIN3 provides a dedicated high-capacity Internet network for research and education communities across 11 countries throughout the Asia-Pacific region, and the Juniper infrastructure will enable TEIN3 to deliver advanced services such as next-generation video conferencing, virtual classrooms, remote consulting and other services while lowering total cost of ownership (TCO).

TEIN3 offers Asia-Pacific a gateway for global collaboration, enabling more than 30 million users in 4,000 research and educational organizations across the region to participate in joint projects such as the fight against malaria, forecasting extreme weather conditions and improving health via telemedicine. The TEIN3 project is coordinated by DANTE, a not-for-profit organization that operates regional networking projects in Europe, Latin America and the southern Mediterranean rim.

"Researchers rely on TEIN3 to transfer tremendous amounts of data concerning very important projects ranging from preventing disease to astrophysics, so its absolutely critical the network delivers high levels of scale, performance and reliability," said Dai Davies, general manager of DANTE. "We decided to go with Juniper because in our experience Juniper does what it says it will do."

Additionally TEIN3 connects researchers with their peers in Europe and other parts of the world via linkage to GÉANT2. Asian locations already connected include Australia, China, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Laos, Malaysia, Pakistan, the Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam. There are plans to further expand the TEIN infrastructure for connectivity in the South Asian subcontinent.

Juniper Networks M Series Multiservice Edge Routers are deployed in the world's largest networks, delivering advanced IP/MPLS edge routing services at scale that enable high-performance service providers and enterprises to rapidly deploy new services while minimizing the total cost of ownership. The M Series Routers provide exceptional flexibility and reliability over a wide range of connectivity options without compromise

Juniper's EX3200 Ethernet Switch utilizes field-proven technology, including high-performance ASICs and a carrier-class system architecture, to provide high-performance connectivity for branch and remote offices, as well as small LAN segments in large campus networks. Eight QoS queues are supported on each port, ensuring proper prioritization of control plane, voice, video, and multiple levels of data traffic, with room to converge other networks.

The EX Series and M Series all run JUNOS® software, a single-source operating system integrating routing, switching, security and network services from Juniper Networks. By running a single, consistent operating system in many portions of its network, organizations can dramatically reduce operating costs and complexity by up to 41 percent, according to commissioned research *.

"Today's research and education networks need to evolve quickly, without compromising performance and reliability, to support a growing set of highly demanding requirements including real time global collaboration and network interconnectivity," said Mark Prior, regional research and education director, Juniper Asia Pacific. "By leveraging Juniper's high-performance routing and switching infrastructure and the powerful JUNOS feature set, organizations such as DANTE can deploy a scalable, reliable network that can empower its users by facilitating collaboration and information sharing amongst researchers."
