Juniper upgrades NTT network, names sales VP
Juniper Networks said that NTT Communications has deployed its T1600 core routers to scale the capacity of its global IP network, which the two characterized as the largest dedicated Internet backbone network in the world.
“To support rapid increase of Internet traffic and services, we upgraded our backbone network with T1600s to expand routing capacity, while also minimizing operational cost, space and power consumption,” said Kempei Fukuda, director of the global network department for NTT.
“With the T1600, we doubled the network capacity on the same footprint and, more importantly,” he continued, “reduced power consumption by more than 20 percent. The T1600 is an optimal solution for improving network performance, creating more value for our customers, as well as meeting our commitment to protect the environment.”
Separately, Juniper Networks appointed Philip O’Reilly to SVP of U.S. enterprise sales. O’Reilly joins Juniper Networks from Solunet, where he served as CEO.
