Juniper and Nokia Siemens unveil integrated packet transport network solution

By Telecom Lead Team: Juniper Networks and Nokia Siemens
Networks announced the launch of the integrated packet transport network


The new solution includes Juniper Networks PTX packet
transport switches and Nokia Siemens Networks hiT 7300 optical packet transport


According to a press release, the solution addresses the
need of service providers to simplify the network architecture by integrating
multiple layers into a simple, scalable design that improves the economics of
the core network infrastructure.

Nokia Siemens deploys one billion packet core subscriber

Recently, Nokia Siemens announced that more than 285
operators in more than 115 countries use its packet core offering to serve
mobile broadband. Of these, over 100 operators use the company’s Liquid Core based LTE-ready packet core, and are equipping
their networks to support LTE and substantially reduce overall core network
cost of ownership.


The company has deployed over 2000 packet core network
elements worldwide, and is the number one provider of LTE-ready packet core for
GSM/ EDGE, HSPA, LTE and Wi-Fi based mobile broadband networks.


The new solution fits perfectly into our Liquid Net
approach. Networks need to transform to be able to cope with unpredictability
and ever increasing capacity demand. The Integrated Packet Transport Network
solution will give operators more flexibility in their transport networks,
while at the same time optimizing total cost of ownership,” Uwe Fischer, head
of optical networks product management, Nokia Siemens Networks.


Through the use of standardized data and control
interfaces, the inherent efficiency of MPLS is combined with the scalability of
the transport layer to deliver unmatched network scale and flexibility, with
fewer network elements.


These Integrated transponders interworking with the
hiT7300 platform are designed to reduce the amount of hardware needed in the
network and hence lower both capital and operational costs.


The solution is designed to have data, management and
control plane integration between the IP/MPLS and DWDM layers, allowing
operators to simplify their network and have a tighter connection between
IP/MPLS and the photonic network.


Operators will benefit from a significant reduction in
operating and capital expenses, as well as a reduction in complexity and risk
in the network, while enhancing resiliency and automation of network


To improve the economics of core network provisioning,
service providers must reduce infrastructure and operating costs while
improving the efficiency of service delivery and the user experience. Service
providers measure success on building and implementing a more effective
operating model for their core transport networks, which is the very foundation
of our new packet-transport solution with Nokia Siemens Networks,” Daniel Hua,
senior vice president of engineering, Juniper Networks.
