Q2 Highlights:
High-Performance Network Infrastructure For service providers, Juniper announced the newest member of the T-series family, the T1600 core router. Capable of delivering an industry-leading 1.6 Tbps of throughput in a single half-rack chassis, the service-aware T1600 core router will ease the transition to next-generation networks and enable service providers to accelerate the deployment of the experience-based services that subscribers expect today with the agility and service control to address future requirements. Fully supported by JUNOS, the T1600 is policy-enabled and managed through the Session Resource Control (SRC) product family to maximize service control and speed the deployment of multiplay applications. And as the industry's most energy efficient core router, the T1600 will consume 30 percent less power and require 30 percent less cooling than competitive platforms to deliver operational excellence and superior investment protection.

Juniper also announced the newest member of the market-leading E-series family, the E120 Broadband Services Router. The E120 mirrors the advanced feature set, high-performance and reliability of the E320 in a smaller, highly efficient form factor, enabling service providers to quickly and cost-effectively extend multiplay services to untapped markets served by smaller points of presence. In parallel Juniper announced the successful completion of interoperability and joint solution testing with an initial set of partners of several new advertising technologies that will enable IPTV service providers to, for the first time, gather real-time subscriber viewing statistics and deliver highly-targeted advertisements to pursue significant new revenue opportunities.

For enterprises, Juniper expanded its high-performance network infrastructure with new software releases for the Integrated Security Gateway (ISG) and Secure Services Gateway (SSG) firewall/VPNs and IDP products. For the first time, enterprises will have advanced granular visibility and control of business applications and users, enabling them to set and enforce security policies across the network and enhance application delivery and performance to improve user productivity and keep pace with escalating business requirements.

Juniper also announced two new J-series routers, the J2320 and J2350, two new SSG platforms, the SSG320M and SSG350M, as well as the latest versions of the NetScreen-Security Manager (NSM) Central Manager and NSMXpress network management appliances. With the addition of these new high-performance products, Juniper continues to demonstrate its commitment to providing best-in-class and highly integrated secure networking technologies for branch offices.

In addition, Juniper continued to strengthen its industry partnerships, working closely with Microsoft to provide customers and partners with open standards-based interoperability between Juniper Networks Unified Access Control (UAC) and Microsoft Network Access Protection (NAP). Once this work is completed, interoperability between Microsoft's NAP and the Juniper Networks UAC solution will provide enterprises with greater choice, flexibility and investment protection for network access control (NAC) deployments.

Fueling High-Performance Businesses In the service provider market, Juniper realized strength in the core where the T-series and TX Matrix continued to gain momentum. The company announced the expansion of China Telecom Shanghai's next generation network with the TX matrix and T640 core routers to support the growth of IPTV and multiplay applications. Japan's National Institute for Informatics (NII), the country's largest and most advanced academic research institution, upgraded its nationwide SINET3 next generation network with Juniper Networks T-series routers to efficiently support high-bandwidth applications and ensure future scalability. In addition, Bayanant Al-oula, a new service provider based in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, selected Juniper Networks M- and T-series routers for the build-out of its new IP/MPLS-based next generation network to enable premium multiplay voice, video and IPTV services for its expanding base of residential and business subscribers.

In the enterprise, Juniper high-performance routing, security and application acceleration offerings continued to gain momentum. The Turkish Directorate-General of Security Forces deployed M- and J-series routers to create Pol-Net, an IP/MPLS-based network that will underpin police and security-related communications throughout Turkey. The National University of Singapore (NUS) deployed Juniper SSL VPN appliances to securely deliver online examinations to its students.

Cooper-Standard Automotive, a leading manufacturer and OEM supplier to the automobile industry, deployed Juniper Networks SSL VPN appliances to enable secure high-performance global remote access to its corporate intranet from a variety of computer platforms including the newly released Windows Vista operating system. Carlsberg A/S, one of the world's best-known beer brands, deployed Juniper Networks DX data center application acceleration platforms and See's Candies enhanced the performance of their retail website through the deployment of Juniper Networks WX application acceleration platforms.
