Finpro Selects Juniper to Build Converged Global Network

Finpro, Finland's overseas trade association, has rolled out a converged global network based on Juniper Networks EX-series ethernet switches. With network deployments in 58 offices across 45 countries, Finpro selected the Juniper solution to provide voice, data and video communications between its Finnish headquarters and remote export centers around the world.

According to Juniper, its EX-series ethernet switches are designed to address an organization's business requirements and create network suited to converged network deployments. Powered by Junos software, a single network operating system running routing, switching and security platforms, the EX-series switches are expected to simplify the rollout of new features and applications that can enhance business operations without threatening network performance.

Gert-Jan Schenk, senior vice president of operations for Middle East and North Arica at Juniper Networks, said: "Finpro has taken full advantage of the advanced functionality we offer to achieve a secure, converged and cost-effective global communications infrastructure. We are pleased to have been instrumental in delivering such a clear business benefit to this organization."
