Bezeq selects Juniper Networks to establish new IP network

22 Nov 2013

Israeli fixed line incumbent Bezeq, which offers mobile services via its Pelephone unit, is said to be undertaking a major network upgrade with a view to preparing for the introduction of fourth-generation services. According to Globes Online, which cites unnamed sources, the telco has selected Juniper Networks to establish a new IP network that Pelephone will use for the introduction of 4G services. It is understood that the new infrastructure will allow Pelephone to independently manage data communications, which have until now been handled by its parent company, in a move which will reportedly give the cellco independence and flexibility in managing its network resources. Such a setup is said to be viewed as critical for the deployment of 4G services due to the increase in data communications and the need to allow the use of many applications at higher speeds.
