Telia International Carrier is working to increase the bandwidth capacity of its backbone network, and is turning to Ericsson to make it happen.

As part of the deal, Ericsson will supply IP core backbone routers based on Juniper Networks ' T640 Internet Routing Node. The T640 offers throughput speeds of 640 Gbps.

The project will get underway next month. Financial terms were not disclosed.

This is not the first time Telia has teamed with Ericsson. Last year, Ericsson provided Telia with its fundamental IP backbone network in the United States and Europe.

Separately, Korea Telecom said it plans to deploy Juniper's M20 Internet Routers to enhance the capacity of its national high-speed backbone network in Korea. Financial terms were not detailed.
