Juniper selected by LANCO for data center network infrastructure

By Telecom Lead Team: Juniper Networks has supplied
campus and data center network infrastructure to LANCO Infratech for its
engineering, procurement & construction (EPC) division in Gurgaon.

By deploying the Juniper Networks Simply Connected
portfolio, which includes switching, wireless LAN, security and management
devices, LANCO EPC can improve business performance with a new
high-performance, highly secure, reliable and manageable network.

The new LANCO EPC office can accommodate up to 2,000
staff and a data center
that supports SAP enterprise management systems, resource-intensive heavy
construction design applications and unified communications.

We spent six months carrying out a detailed evaluation
of proposals from various leading network vendors and system integrators and
came to the clear conclusion that Juniper Networks’ solution is superior in
almost every respect. We have an extremely robust 10 Gbps network core with an
upgrade path up to 100 Gbps if and when we ever need it; a carrier-grade access
network with seamless security across the wired and wireless segments; and a
compelling improvement in total cost-of-ownership,” said Ajay K. Dhir, Group
CIO, LANCO Infratech.

Juniper Networks EX8208 Ethernet Switches form a highly
resilient network core, with a high-density of non-blocking Gigabit Ethernet
(GbE) and 10GbE ports enabling direct attachment of servers and access
switches, resulting in very low network latency.

The access layer is provided by Juniper Networks EX4200
Ethernet Switches with Virtual Chassis fabric technology.  The EX4200
switches provide large numbers of wire-speed GbE access ports including Power
over Ethernet where needed – to support workstations and IP phones. The Virtual
Chassis technology allows up to 10 interconnected switches to be operated and
managed as a single, logical device.

We are pleased that Juniper Networks has been selected
by another fast-growing business group in India with our open, scalable and
secure ‘wired-less’ solution being recognized as the network of choice for
campus deployments,” said Ravi Chauhan, managing director, India & SAARC,
Juniper Networks.
