Juniper Networks said the Malaysian Research and Education Network (MYREN) has migrated its phase 2A network infrastructure to Juniper Networks routing offering running the Junos operating system.
MYREN has deployed Juniper Networks M Series Multiservice Edge Routers and J Series Service Routers to scale capacity while paving the way for the expansion of its user base.
MYREN phase 2A has been launched with the aim of connecting public and private-sector organisations including universities, hospitals, polytechnics and community colleges, following five years of first phase operations.
Deployment of Juniper Networks M7i Multiservice Edge Routers at the PoPs and at MYREN’s peering point has enabled migration to high-speed backbone links of up to 1Gbps.
The M7i’s separate hardware-based routing and forwarding engines drive a high-performance distribution layer MPLS network architecture, with Juniper Networks J6350 Service Routers acting as the provider edge at MYREN-connected campuses.
Juniper Networks vice president of product marketing and strategy Mike Marcellin said with Junos operating system running across the entire infrastructure, network administrators are positioned to respond dynamically to the bandwidth and network security requirements of researchers and academics across the network.
The Juniper Networks J6350 Service Routers used as campus connection points to MYREN combine routing with firewall and voice-over-IP gateway features in a compact package.
The J6350 will handle L2 and L3 connections, with physical media ranging from optical fibre to microwave transmission, as the access link is dictated by MYREN end users.
