Juniper Networks @ Mobile World Congress 2013

Telecom Lead @ Mobile World Congress 2013: Juniper Networks has launched new security line cards for its SRX5600 and 5800 Series Services Gateways that significantly improve performance and reliability for LTE mobile network operators.

The new Juniper Networks SRX Series line cards can provide mobile operators with zero downtime performance upgrades and scale to accommodate the exponential growth of network throughput.

The new line cards support up to 100 million concurrent sessions and up to 200 Gbps of firewall throughput with a single SRX Series Services Gateway.

New Juniper Networks SRX Series line cards are compatible with current cards and chasses. Existing Juniper customers can use the same SRX5000 Series chassis to extend current investments while scaling to meet customer demands.

“Juniper’s new SRX 5000 series line cards offer unprecedented scale for firewall, VPN and other security services, zero downtime for hardware and software upgrades and the ability for our existing customers to protect their current investment,” said Nawaf Bitar, senior vice president, Security Business Unit, Juniper Networks.

Juniper Networks has also unveiled new software and services enabling mobile service providers to realize benefits while laying the foundation to build software-defined networks (SDN).

Based on use cases and data from ACG Research, customers may realize up to 65 percent reduction in Opex and up to 54 percent reduction in total cost of ownership.

Juniper Networks Junos Space Services Activation Director application enables service providers to provision thousands of seamless services, including multiprotocol label switching (MPLS) and Carrier Ethernet for mobile backhaul.

Service Activation Direction lowers Opex cost through simplified deployment and management, and greater business insight gained from service provider networks. The Services Activation Director, along with other Junos Space applications, is scheduled to be available for purchase in the first half of 2013, which allows the software to transfer to any network element with which it operates.

“Juniper’s JunosV App Engine allows Hitachi to innovate and deliver MME/SGSN Gateway services faster and cost efficiently for our customers,” said Kiichiro Taima, CEO and president of Hitachi Communication Technologies America.
