Juniper Networks, the network innovation service provider, has unveiled two new products designed to address key challenges facing service providers as they converge their networks to optimise their business. First, Juniper Networks has advanced the Converged Supercore for service providers with the introduction of the Juniper Networks PTX3000 Packet Transport Router. Unlike other core routers that are so large that they often require building retrofits and redesigns, the new Juniper Networks router at 10.6 inches in depth can be installed in virtually any space and energy constrained environment. The PTX3000 router’s capacity is designed to rapidly scale over time up to 24 terabits per second (Tbps), enabling PTX3000 to simultaneously stream high-definition video to as many as three million households. In addition, Juniper Networks announced an integrated packet-transport physical interface card (PIC) with two-ports of line rate 100 Gigabit forwarding for the entire PTX family, which will now enable service providers to cost-effectively interconnect sites more than 2000 kilometers (1243 miles) apart, the equivalent distance between San Francisco, Calif. and Denver, Colo.
