FusionNet Web Services, which launched its broadband services in Delhi, India, last year, has tapped Juniper Networks solution.

The regional broadband player made investment in Juniper Networks MX480 3D Universal Edge Routers that support up to 5.76 Tbps of system throughput as centralized broadband network gateways (BNGs) in FusionNet’s operations center.

FusionNet is streamlining their PoPs by deploying Juniper Networks EX4200 Ethernet Switches to provide high density network access ports. FusionNet can leverage Juniper Networks’ Virtual Chassis technology, supported by the EX4200s, to add capacity while operating the PoP as a single virtual switch.

The company has also deployed EX4200 switches, MX Series routers and a Juniper Networks SRX650 Services Gateway its operations center.

“The Juniper routing, switching and security devices we’ve deployed provide us with a holistic operating model that is simple and highly effective, which will help us to reach profitability early in the development of our business,” said Pankaj Nagpal, chief technical officer at FusionNet Web Services.

FusionNet is leveraging the new multi-service gigabit passive optical network (GPON) infrastructure being rolled out in Delhi NCR by a partner company. This enables FusionNet to provide fiber-to-the-premises Internet access at up to 100 Mbps.

By the end of this year, the GPON infrastructure – used to support pre-paid smart meter electricity distribution as well as other services such as cable TV – will be connected to about 150,000 homes and business.

“In-line with our vision of being the leader in networking innovation and our support for Digital India and Smart Cities, we are happy to partner with FusionNet to address this great opportunity of unmet customer demand within the NCR, and potentially elsewhere in the county,” said Amajit Gupta, MD, India and SAARC, Juniper Networks.
