Juniper amplifies TeliaSonera's core network

The debut of Cisco's CRS-3 router may have scored high on this week's hype-o-meter, but now rival Juniper Networks is making some core routing noise of its own. TeliaSonera is leveraging Juniper's TX Matrix Plus, the multichassis version its T1600 core router.

And like most incumbent service providers, TeliaSonera has two sources on hand for its core routing needs: Cisco and Juniper. In 2007, TeliaSonera also deployed the CRS-1. For this deployment, Juniper is not replacing its rival, but instead is upgrading an existing T-Series router in its Frankfurt, Germany node to the TX Matrix Plus.

According to a LightReading article, Juniper says this deployment is part of an ongoing series of network upgrades that it has lined up with TeliaSonera. "It's not the last one. We're working with them on a number of upgrades," says Esben Dahl-Nielsen, a regional sales director at Juniper.
