Juniper Networks Introduces the Next-Generation Core Router for the New Network

Juniper Networks introduced its next-generation and the industry’s fastest core routing platform, and demonstrated a standards-based 100G core-to-edge network. 100G networking technology is vital to the continued growth of IP-based services and applications, including supporting traffic from wireless and wired broadband devices as well as data-intensive applications, such as cloud computing and collaborative scientific research.

Juniper Networks® T4000 Core Router, powered by the Junos® operating system, provides the scalability and flexibility required to meet rapidly expanding bandwidth requirements, while extending the investment protection of the T Series platform, which is the most widely deployed core routing platform in the world.

As well as meeting the growing needs of service providers around the world, the next-generation high-performance processing innovations of Juniper’s routing portfolio will help usher in a new era of scientific discovery. For example, by connecting to Internet2’s recently announced 100Gbps research network powered by the T Series, scientists accessing the Large Hadron Collider at CERN will be able to accelerate the processing of terabytes of data in the quest to advance our scientific understanding of the universe. The same research network will also increase the data transfer capabilities between the two telescopes of the Gemini Observatory located in Hawaii and the Chilean Andes, allowing astronomers to access skies in both hemispheres simultaneously.

Juniper has been showcasing a live demonstration of the 100G network, during the SC10 Supercomputing 2010, international conference on high-performance computing, networking, storage and analysis, being held this week in New Orleans in the U.S.
