JUNIPER NETWORKS BREAKS NEW GROUND WITH WORLD’S SMALLEST SUPERCORE AND INDUSTRY’S DENSEST 100G OPTICAL ROUTING INTERFACE
ANAHEIM, CA–(Marketwire – Mar 18, 2013) – (OFC/NFOEC) — Juniper Networks (NYSE: JNPR), the industry leader in network innovation, today unveiled two new products designed to address key challenges facing service providers as they converge their networks to optimize their business. At 10.6 Inches, the PTX3000 Delivers up to Six Times Greater Performance for Space-Constricted Markets; The 100G Interface Efficiently Connects Metro Sites up to 2000 Kilometers (1243 Miles) Apart.
Space and energy are two key challenges faced by Service Providers as they converge and optimize their business. The PTX3000 Packet Transport Router breaks new ground with the world’s smallest supercore, with capacity that is designed to rapidly scale over time up to 24 terabits per second. With this innovation, Service Providers can now install a converged supercore in virtually any space and energy constrained environment. Plus, it is designed to rapidly scale with minimal power consumption.
First, Juniper Networks has advanced the industry’s first and only Converged Supercore™ for service providers with the introduction of the Juniper Networks® PTX3000 Packet Transport Router. Unlike other core routers that are so large that they often require building retrofits and redesigns, the new Juniper Networks router at 10.6 inches in depth can be installed in virtually any space and energy constrained environment. The PTX3000 router’s capacity is designed to rapidly scale over time up to 24 terabits per second (Tbps), enabling PTX3000 to simultaneously stream high-definition video to as many as three million households.
In addition, Juniper Networks announced an integrated packet-transport physical interface card (PIC) with two-ports of line rate 100 Gigabit forwarding for the entire PTX family, which will now enable service providers to cost-effectively interconnect sites more than 2000 kilometers (1243 miles) apart, the equivalent distance between San Francisco, Calif. and Denver, Colo.
Meet the latest innovation in the PTX line.
The PTX3000 breaks the mold for core routers with game-changing size, performance and efficiency, addressing practical barriers that Service Providers face in upgrading today’s networks. With the PTX3000, Juniper has redefined the upgrade so that one technician can manually hand-carry and install a PTX3000 within a matter of minutes versus hours.
When compared to competing core routing platforms, the PTX3000 router delivers:
- The industry’s lowest power consumption – up to 1.2Tbps per Kilowatt
- The industry’s most efficient system design – generating roughly 10,000 BTU of heat for a fully loaded system
- Leading capacity-to-space ration at over 0.533 gigabits per cubic inch
- Wire rate forwarding for even the smallest packet sizes
- The industry’s lowest latency at down to 5 micro-seconds
- A precision feature set that ensures rapid time-to-deployment, and high reliability
