IIJ Deploys Juniper’s MX-Series Ethernet Services Routers

Internet Initiative Japan has deployed Juniper Networks's MX-series ethernet services routers to enhance network performance and service versatility in addition to addressing power supply and space constraints.

According to Juniper, by upgrading its legacy infrastructure with MX960 and MX480 routers, Internet Initiative Japan (IIJ) scaled its network capacity to manage growing ethernet traffic, without overloading electrical resources at the company's site.

Junichi Shimagami, director for network services at IIJ, said: "We are concerned about both electrical power capacity and rack space, so it was not feasible to simply add more routers in order to handle increased traffic demands. With the MX-series, Juniper Networks met our goal of controlling network costs without sacrificing the high-quality services that have earned the loyalty of our customers."
