The proliferation of 100G connectivity in core networks is now spreading to the regional and metro/access areas. The demands in the metro access area are, in fact, similar for scale, connectivity and latency but actually up the bar when it comes to footprint, power utilization and lower BTUs per Gpbs.
Juniper Networks introduced the PTX5000 at OFC in 2011 and shook up the router landscape with the introduction of the first core-optimized product on the market that delivers a simple architecture, which both content and service providers can leverage.
The company has now introduced the PTX3000, which will play an important role in the metro core as Juniper Networks is now delivering the power of the Supercore in a transport package.
