CERNET Launches First Commercial 100 Gigabit Ethernet Network in China With Juniper Networks T-Series
Juniper Networks Cements Position as Major Provider of Core Network Routers for the China Education and Research Network
- CERNET’s deployment of Juniper Networks T4000 Core Routers will provide 2000 universities located in more than 200 cities in China and 20,000,000 students with fast, secure and seamless access to a variety of research applications, fostering greater collaboration across a diverse set of research disciplines.
- CERNET chose Juniper Networks as its major provider of core network routers after a rigorous technical evaluation of competing 100GbE routing products. A Juniper customer since 2005, CERNET has already had a positive experience with Juniper Networks T Series Core Routers running continuously at the core of China’s Next Generation Internet (CNGI) CERNET2, its IPv6 network.
- With Juniper Networks T4000 routers, CERNET’s backbone network now delivers a total bandwidth of international and domestic interconnection exceeding 60 Gbps.
- The T4000 routers deployed by CERNET are the first to be put into operation on a production network in China.
- In October 2012, China’s first 100 GbE long term network link connecting CERNET’s network centers in Beijing to Wuhan went live. By the end of the year, CERNET had more than ten 100 GbE links deployed. All thanks to Juniper Networks’ simplified product integration and its services and support.
- With 3.84 Tbps of line rate throughput in a half rack chassis, the T4000 offers double the slot capacity of the nearest half rack height core router competitor, supporting up to 16 ports of 100 GbE or 208 ports of 10 GbE.
- All existing Juniper Networks T640 and T1600 systems can be upgraded in-service to T4000 systems, offering complete investment protection to the existing T Series installed base.
