Juniper Networks rolls out carrier-grade routing solution for LG Uplus

13 Jan 2017

South Korea’s LG Uplus has successfully rolled out what is claimed to be the country’s first-ever carrier-grade virtual routing deployment as part of a broad infrastructure solution, supporting its evolution towards a 5G network, US-based Juniper Networks has announced. Juniper noted that two specific technology requirements had been defined by LG Uplus for evaluation, namely virtual routing and OpenStack-based Network Functions Virtualisation (NFV) orchestration. Following an ‘extensive qualification process’, LG Uplus was said to have selected Juniper’s virtual route reflector capability within the vMX and EX4300/EX2200 Ethernet Switches as the best solution for the 5G project. Through close collaboration with a partner, Juniper’s virtual routing solution is said to offer two key features that addressed major resiliency objectives for LG Uplus, those being: Auto Recovery, the ability to automatically recognize network errors and then dynamically create a new Virtual Router immediately in order to ensure seamless service continuity; and Auto Healing, the ability to prevent system overload if operator-defined maximum CPU and memory utilisation values are exceeded.
