Juniper Networks® announced that the Shanghai Branch of China Telecom Corporation (NYSE: CHA, HKEx: 728) has deployed its top-of-the-line multi-chassis routing system in a production environment. Implementation of the Juniper Networks TX Matrix Plus, interconnecting Juniper Networks T1600 Core Routers, provides China Telecom with an extremely stable and flexible platform to continue scaling the core of its super metro area network in Shanghai and to support Expo 2010, which is taking place in the city.
China Telecom has 3.5 million Shanghai broadband customers, including 1.2 million IPTV subscribers, and had been using Juniper Networks TX Matrix with three T640 Core Routers within its network there since 2006. With a continually increasing customer base and rising bandwidth demand in China's largest and most commercially important city, which has a population of more than 20 million, the company needed a core routing platform that would make it easier to continue scaling its metro area network services.
