Juniper Networks Introduces Next Generation of Network Infrastructure for the Distributed Enterprise in Malaysia

Juniper Networks announced its next generation network infrastructure for the distributed enterprise in Malaysia, including new SRX Series Services Gateways and a new line of EX Series Ethernet Switches.

  • It is the industry's only multi-service network infrastructure based on a single OS to enable enterprises to reduce OPEX by 41 percent1
  • Combines Network and Security Manager (NSM) and JUNOS® Software to help customers design and deploy efficient networks that provide industry leading performance and security at lower operational costs across locations of all sizes
  • Leverages Advanced Insight Solutions (AIS) intelligence built into JUNOS Software
  • The new SRX240 can deliver up to five times security performance at half the cost of competitive alternatives
  • The new EX Series delivers enterprise-class gigabit access connectivity at a lower list price than equivalent devices

The new additions to the SRX Series family are based on the industry's first Dynamic Services Architecture, an extensible approach that simultaneously scales integrated services and network capacity to reduce the escalating demands and risks placed on the network.

  • Supports a complete suite of unified threat management and intrusion prevention capabilities
  • Select SRX models feature hardware based Content Security Acceleration for high-performance inline anti-virus and intrusion prevention services (IPS) as well as Power over Ethernet (POE) and standards-based SIP voice gateway capability
  • Four models are announced today: the SRX100, SRX210, SRX240 and SRX650
  • All models have integrated security, routing and switching

The new EX2200 line of fixed-configuration Ethernet switches will offer an economical, plug-and-play, high-performance, low-power solution for access-layer deployments in branch offices and campus networks.

  • Featuring JUNOS Software-based Layer 2 and Layer 3 switching capabilities, the EX2200 Ethernet Switches satisfy the access connectivity requirements of today's high-performance businesses
  • Consumes less than two Watts per port at a lower price than competitive Fast Ethernet enterprise access switches
  • Four models are announced today: the EX2200-24T-4G and EX2200-48T-4G offer 24 and 48 10/100/1000BASE-T ports respectively, while the EX2200-24P-4G and EX2200-48P-4G offer similar configurations with full IEEE 802.3af PoE to support converged network devices such as telephones, video cameras and wireless LAN (WLAN) access points

A study conducted by Forrester Consulting in February 2009 demonstrated that through the use of JUNOS and Juniper switches and routers, companies achieved reductions in operational costs for specific network operations tasks, including planning and provision, deployment, planned and unplanned network events. Among other top-line results, the study reports a 41% reduction in overall network operations costs based on dollar savings across specific task categories.

"Customers rarely see this kind of breakthrough in increased performance, integrated features, and improved total cost of ownership. Juniper Networks Distributed Enterprise Solutions use high-performance network infrastructure to shatter traditional quality of service boundaries imposed by rigid, complex, and aging networks. By ensuring consistent enterprise-wide performance, security and manageability, customers can count on exceptional user experiences that can increase the productivity and profitability of their distributed enterprises."
