Juniper Networks and Interoute Win Global Telecoms Business Award for Innovation in Fixed Network Infrastructure

Ground to Cloud Business Services Solution based on MX Series Delivers Scale and Feature Richness without Compromise

ENGLAND, August 11, 2009 - Juniper Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: JNPR), the leader in high-performance networking, and Interoute, a leading pan-European service provider offering both business and wholesale solutions have won the Fixed Network Infrastructure Innovation award with their joint solution. The joint award was presented at the recent Global Telecoms Business (GTB) Innovation awards ceremony in London.

The GTB Innovation Awards are designed to recognize innovative projects involving telecoms operators and service providers around the world, in association with their vendors and suppliers.

Juniper Networks and Interoute received the award for their Ground to Cloud Business services solution project, which advances the need for next generation providers to be able to combine scale and service sophistication without compromise. As part of this solution, Interoute has deployed Juniper Networks MX Series Ethernet Services Routers to create an advanced IP/MPLS infrastructure. This routing infrastructure is combined with Interoute's multi-terabit optical network in a joint solution, enabling Interoute to rapidly scale the customer service delivery capability across a wide range of services and features. For example, the Ground to Cloud portfolio includes high-speed, premium media conferencing services that can adapt easily to the customers' changing market environment.

"This project is a great example of how Juniper works closely with its customers to create innovative services that improve service provider profitability while also meeting demand from customers. Interoute is leveraging a high-performance network infrastructure to create differentiated, attractive yet cost-effective services in a competitive marketplace," said Gert-Jan Schenk, senior vice president of operations, EMEA, Juniper Networks. "We are very pleased to accept this joint award from GTB as a result of our collaboration with Interoute."

Alan Burkitt-Gray, editor of GTB magazine, said the GTB team was impressed by the quality and number of nominations this year - the most it has ever had - so it was a special triumph to be one of the winners this year.

"This project stood out, even though the competition was strong, and it just had to be one of the winners. Well done to all involved," Burkitt-Gray continued. "The industry is seeing a wave of innovation which is making a huge difference - to the companies working in the industry and to all of us in business and as consumers."
