Juniper Networks to upgrade STC’s backbone

25 Feb 2016

Juniper Networks has been selected by Saudi Telecom Company (STC) to build and deploy what it claimed to be ‘the largest internet gateway backbone’ in the Middle East. Under the deal, Juniper deployed its Networks PTX5000 Series Packet Transport Routers to expand STC’s fixed and mobile internet backbone, in addition to its SDN-ready MX2020 3D Universal Edge Router. The expansion project is designed to provide ultra-high speed internet access to 3G/4G and fixed line services in many locations throughout the Middle East, with the newly expanded network set to provide a major increase in capacity with international providers.
