IIJ taps Juniper Networks routers to shave power use

04 Dec 2008

Juniper Networks said that Internet Initiative Japan (IIJ) has deployed its MX-series Ethernet services routers to enhance network performance, reliability and service versatility, aside from addressing power supply and space constraints.

By upgrading its legacy infrastructure with MX960 and MX480 routers, IIJ scaled its network capacity to manage growing Ethernet traffic -- which doubled in the past year -- without overloading electrical resources at the company's site.

Masanori Osuga, vice president of Juniper Networks' Japan business, said IIJ's deployment of the MX-series demonstrates the priority now being given to efficient performance in the design of the networks being built in Japan and worldwide. "Improving energy efficiency is a key part of monetizing the network by reducing operating costs while speeding service delivery."

Juniper touts the MX-series as reducing costs, enabling more revenue per platform and able to scale to protect customers' investments. Offering efficient support of high-density interfaces in a range of efficient, high-performance hardware platforms, the MX-series supports a wide range of business and residential applications and services, including high-speed transport and VPN services, next-generation broadband multiplay services and high-volume internet data center internetworking.
