Juniper launches fastest core router
Dubai, November 24, 2010
Juniper Networks has introduced its next-generation and the industry’s fastest core routing platform that delivers breakthrough levels of performance.
The T4000 Core Router, powered by the Junos operating system, provides the scalability and flexibility required to meet rapidly expanding bandwidth requirements, while extending the unprecedented investment protection of the T Series platform, the most widely deployed core routing platform in the world.
At 240 Gbps/slot, the T4000 is the industry’s fastest and densest IP/MPLS router, built and optimised for transport networks, the service provider backbone and major peering points around the world. With four terabits of line rate throughput in a half rack chassis, the T4000 is purpose-built to facilitate the continued rapid increase in multimedia applications, including enterprise collaboration and mobile video conferencing as well as new and emerging cloud and research applications.
The T4000 is being introduced as Internet traffic patterns are increasingly more dynamic with video, cloud computing and mobile applications placing new demands on the network. ABI Research projects that U.S. mobile data traffic will grow more than 500 per cent in the next four years to reach more than 3,200 petabytes by 2014.
“With the T4000, Juniper is now the first to provide clear investment protection for three generations of core routers since the introduction of the T640 more than eight years ago,” said Stefan Dyckerhoff, executive vice president and general manager, Infrastructure Products Group, Juniper Networks.
The T4000 is designed for optimum power efficiency and shows dramatic improvement in the watt per bit processed by most competitive platforms. At 2.7 watts of power per Gigabit of processed traffic, the T4000 is more than three times as efficient as the T1600, which is the most power-efficient core router of its generation.-TradeArabia News Service
