Juniper Rolls Out MX Routers, Virtualized Platform for Network Edge

October 16, 2012

Juniper Networks has unveiled new edge routers and a single, virtualization platform aimed at enabling service providers to quickly deploy new service apps.

Combined, the new Juniper Networks MX2020 3D Universal Edge Router and new JunosV App Engine transform the network edge into a powerful platform for rapid service deployment, speeding time to revenue by up to 69 percent compared to other solutions1. This helps service providers reverse declining revenue models by removing the complexity and time associated with service deployment.

“Our vision for the new network is to provide innovations that help transform service providers into super providers,” said Rami Rahim, senior vice president, Edge and Aggregation Business Unit, Juniper Networks. “Thousands of MX customers have validated the need for massive scaling and reduced complexity driven by emerging video, applications, and cloud-based services. We see our new edge services engine as the first solution that truly empowers service providers to take control of their business by removing barriers currently hindering innovation and revenue expansion.”

The MX Series router and JunosV App Engine build on recently announced consumer and business services that allow customers to leverage their existing infrastructure to maximize revenue opportunities through rapid service deployment. This solution offers new levels of scale for service providers by delivering a gateway for everything the network has to offer: one system, innovative software services, with unlimited revenue possibilities at unconstrained scale.

MX2020 and MX2010 3D Universal Edge Routers, the world’s most powerful single-chassis routers, allow service providers to scale up to 67 percent more capacity than any other competitor2. At 80 Tbps of capacity, a single MX2020 3D Universal Edge router has enough bandwidth to deliver HD video to the equivalent of every household in New York — and still have room for New Jersey.
