Juniper Networks has announced that US-based XO Communications is increasing its IP network capacity, to support accelerating traffic growth and services, with its MX960 ethernet services routers.

By CBR Staff Writer

According to Juniper, XO Communications is deploying its MX960 ethernet services routers in major metropolitan locations nationwide, delivering increased capacity across the edge of the XO IP network to support services such as video streaming, VoIP, gaming, ecommerce, and online file sharing. The MX960 platform is claimed to deliver 960Gbps of switching and routing capacity, enabling more revenue per platform and providing the scalability to support the growth of the XO network.

The Juniper MX960 platform will be used to support a broad range of XO services, including high speed IP transit, IP-VPN and VoIP services for businesses, large enterprises and wholesale customers. Specifically, the additional capacity will enable XO Communications to continue to meet customer demand for higher speed IP transit services at speeds of 1Gbps and 10Gbps.

Manoj Leelanivas, senior vice president and general manager for edge and aggregation business unit at Juniper Networks, said: With growing demand for high-performance internet access, XO Communications selected the MX960 because it drives network monetization by cost-effectively supporting high performance services at scale. Juniper is pleased to be providing XO Communications with a service-enabling network infrastructure and support XO’s expansion into the high-growth IP transit services market.
