UST Global provides advanced computing and digital services to large private and public enterprises. Accelerating its clients’ digital innovation efforts required an open, cloud-grade infrastructure.

UST Global serves Global 1000 companies in 20 countries with IT services that allow clients to deploy competitive digital offerings of their own. The provider has now expanded with an open, automated Juniper infrastructure that integrates switching, routing, and security and streamlines operations.
With $1.2 billion in consolidated revenues in 2016, UST Global had its eye on new markets and was growing rapidly. The provider sought a cloud-grade network infrastructure that could accommodate that growth and its customers’ many digital transformation projects.
UST Global had introduced Juniper security into its network seven years earlier. The company’s success with the SRX platform gave it the confidence to test other Juniper products, which led to deploying an automated Juniper infrastructure spanning four continents. Among the core components are the QFX5100 Switches, EX4300 Ethernet Switches, MX Series routers, and SRX5400 Services Gateways.
UST Global has improved operational efficiencies, stating that just three staff members run the entire network. The provider says it has garnered a competitive advantage with its state-of-the-art data centers and campus networks and that the improvements are noticeable to their clients, with user satisfaction at an all-time high.
