Saudi Information Ministry Migrates to High-Performance Network from Juniper Networks

Juniper Networks announced that the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia's Ministry of Culture and Information - responsible for state broadcasting, printing and information services, has built a new high-performance network for voice, video and data using an end-to-end integrated infrastructure solution from Juniper Networks.

The Ministry is responsible for all information services in Saudi Arabia, including television broadcasting, radio broadcasting, publication of printed material and foreign press relations. Information and news is provided to the public through the Ministry's network of radio and television broadcasting stations, and through the publication and distribution of books and other material. The Ministry has 38 local publication offices, eight centers for local information and seven centers for foreign information.

The Juniper solution includes switching, routing and security technologies in a more flexible IP network that will deliver 55% faster performance and security while lowering operating costs by 35%, with a switching and routing solution that leverages JUNOS® Software — a single source operating system integrating routing, switching, security and network services from Juniper — to streamline network operations and improve the availability, performance and security of business applications.
