P1 deploys Juniper’s routers as its looks to lower costs, increase capacity

6 Dec 2010

Network solutions vendor Juniper Networks has announced that Malaysian WiMAX provider Packet One Networks (P1) has deployed its MX series universal edge routers, creating a new high-speed, service-enabling MPLS core network. Following the deployment P1 has reportedly increased network capacity while reducing operational costs, with Michael Lai, P1’s CEO noting: ‘To deliver the full benefits of 4G WiMAX to our customers and maximize revenue opportunities, it is essential to have a highly stable core network. The deployment of Juniper Networks MX Series routers helps to monetise our 4G network by accelerating service delivery, while reducing operational costs and complexity.’ The previous MPLS network had a single-layer star topology, but this has now been restructured into two layers deploying Juniper Networks MX960 routers at the central core and MX480 routers for regional aggregation to meet P1’s network stability and scalability requirements while improving manageability.
