Rumor Mill: Juniper in line for big AT&T contract

Juniper Networks' (NYSE: JNPR) luck this week could be taking a turn for the good by gaining a key role in AT&T's (NYSE: T) network build out.

Although there has been no word on any financial details or deployment timeline, Juniper did say that it will be chosen as a supplier of IP, MPLS, Ethernet and Evolved Packet Core domain equipment.

Other than saying that AT&T and Juniper would announce details today, neither company would comment on the day, nor was any other information supplied.

Depending on how big and when the AT&T deal is to take place, a win at one of the U.S.' largest service providers could give Juniper a boost after a poor Q3 2010 forecast drove shares down.
