Telecom Lead Asia: Japan’s NTT Communications has deployed the Juniper Networks T1600 Core Router to power its video transmission system.
MPLS multicasting capability of the T1600 helps NTT Communications achieve a reliable, high-capacity delivery of high-definition video for customer applications.
Juniper enables NTT Communications to maximize its revenue potential by increasing the capacity, flexibility and efficiency of its network core.
Juniper Networks’ core routers are ideal for constructing high-capacity, reliable video networks. To achieve the high-quality of services that our customers demand, we have worked hard to develop new technologies that enable the forwarding of multicast streams to change dynamically and across a wide bandwidth without packet loss.
“This has been achieved through our discussions with Juniper Networks’ developers and engineers in the U.S. and Japan. We look forward to continuing our collaboration with the Juniper team to support our organization’s evolving needs,” said Osamu Nakazawa, director, Innovative IP Architecture Center, NTT Communications.
With 1.6 terabits per second (Tbps) throughput and the ability to forward up to 1.92 billion packets per second, the T1600 is a leader in 10 and 100 gigabit per second Ethernet deployments.
The half-rack design of the T1600 combines a small footprint with the industry’s best power efficiency
Switch forwarding capacity is also substantially improved, enabling NTT Communications to increase bandwidth flexibly in line with growing video forwarding capacity.
High capacity, high-performance, low power and investment protection are key decision criteria when building core networks. The T Series’ scale and density allows service providers like NTT Communications to seamlessly increase network capacity when demand for video, mobile and cloud services grow.
“This latest deployment builds on Juniper Networks’ long and highly successful relationship with NTT Communications that has seen the development of one of the world’s most advanced carrier networks,” said Mike Marcellin, senior vice president, strategy and marketing, Platform and Systems Division, Juniper Networks.
