Juniper Networks said that Packet One Networks, Malaysia’s 4G WiMAX service provider, has deployed its MX Series Universal Edge Routers to create a new high-speed, service-enabling MPLS core network.
The MX Series will increase Packet One’s network capacity and enhance the delivery of advanced fixed and mobile wireless broadband services.
Packet One CEO Michael Lai said the broadband market is relatively underserved in Malaysia and they are supporting the government’s goal of reaching 50% of households by the end of this year and are on track to extend their 4G WiMAX coverage to 45% of Malaysians households by the end of this year, with the goal of hitting 65% by 2012.
Packet One has re-architected its network into two layers deploying Juniper Networks MX960 routers at the central core and MX480 routers for regional aggregation for enhancing network stability and scalability requirements while improving manageability.
In addition, Packet One is also planning to roll out an array of rich media services, including voice-over-Internet Protocol and mobile video.
Juniper Networks vice president of product marketing and strategy Mike Marcellin said with an MPLS network based on the MX Series, Packet One can provide 4G services today while building in long-term scalability and flexibility that can support new and emerging bandwidth-intensive mobile applications and services.
