Italy’s FASTWEB has chosen Nokia Siemens Networks and Juniper Networks to strengthen its IP backbone to meet growing Internet traffic and service quality demands.
“The exponential increase of Internet traffic largely driven by popular social networks and video services had put pressure on our existing core network,” said Guido Roda, head of Network Engineering at FASTWEB.
Nokia Siemens Networks deployed Juniper Networks’ high-capacity T1600 flagship core routers which were added to a Multiservice IP Backbone and integrated with the existing core and access networks. Nokia Siemens Networks’ multi-vendor experience as an IP integrator facilitated the integration of the Juniper equipment into the existing network.
The routers are extremely efficient not only in terms of performance but also floor space occupancy and power consumption, and have proved to be a perfect match for FASTWEB’s immediate capacity requirements.
