TEIN3 selects Juniper for next-generation information network

Aug 04, 2009 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) -- Trans-Eurasia Information Network has selected Juniper Networks's M Series routers and EX Series ethernet switches to improve the scale and efficiency of its next-generation information network while facilitating the transition to IPv6.

The Trans-Eurasia Information Network (TEIN3) provides a dedicated high-capacity internet network for research and education communities across 11 countries throughout the Asia-Pacific region, and the Juniper infrastructure will enable TEIN3 to deliver advanced services such as next-generation video conferencing, virtual classrooms, remote consulting and other services while lowering total cost of ownership.

The TEIN3 project is coordinated by DANTE, a not-for-profit organization that operates regional networking projects in Europe, Latin America and the southern Mediterranean rim.

Dai Davies, general manager of DANTE, said: "Researchers rely on TEIN3 to transfer tremendous amounts of data concerning very important projects ranging from preventing disease to astrophysics, so its absolutely critical the network delivers high levels of scale, performance and reliability. We decided to go with Juniper because in our experience Juniper does what it says it will do." Mark Prior, regional research and education director at Juniper Asia Pacific, said: "By leveraging Juniper's high-performance routing and switching infrastructure and the powerful JUNOS feature set, organizations such as Dante can deploy a scalable, reliable network that can empower its users by facilitating collaboration and information sharing amongst researchers."
