Juniper Networks, a company specializing in networking solutions, announced that its T1600 Core Router has been deployed by Japan's NTT (News - Alert) Communications to power its next-generation video transmission system.
NTT Communications, a subsidiary of NTT Corporation, is a telecommunications company offering network management, security and network services to consumers, corporations and governments. With high-capacity video applications, NTT Communications (News - Alert) was looking to maximize its revenue potential by increasing the capacity, flexibility and efficiency of its network core.
With MPLS multicasting capability, Juniper Networks (News - Alert) T1600 is noted to help NTT Communications achieve a reliable, high-capacity delivery of high-definition video for customer applications.
"High capacity, high-performance, low power and investment protection are key decision criteria when building core networks. The T Series' scale and density allows service providers like NTT Communications to seamlessly increase network capacity when demand for video, mobile and cloud services grow," Mike Marcellin (News - Alert), senior vice president, strategy and marketing, platform and systems division, Juniper Networks, said in a statement.
With 1.6 terabits per second throughput and the ability to forward up to 1.92 billion packets per second, the T1600 is noted to be ideal in 10 and 100 gigabit per second Ethernet deployments. Moreover, the half-rack design of the T1600 combines a small footprint with the industry's best power efficiency. With improved switch forwarding capacity, the solution is believed to help NTT Communications increase bandwidth flexibly in line with growing video forwarding capacity.
“Juniper Networks' core routers are ideal for constructing high-capacity, reliable video networks. We look forward to continuing our collaboration with the Juniper team to support our organization's evolving needs," Osamu Nakazawa, director, innovative IP architecture center, NTT Communications, stated.
