DQE Communications selects Juniper's ACX2000 Universal Access Routers

Juniper Networks has announced that DQE Communications, a fiber optic, collocation, internet and metro service provider, has selected Juniper's ACX2000 Universal Access Routers for its next wave of MPLS-based mobile backhaul deployment.

The ACX2000 expands DQE Communications' service area across more than 300 sites offering service provider and enterprise customers with carrier-grade connectivity, while also delivering improved network utilization and expanded revenue generating services.

The Juniper Networks ACX Series of next-generation access routers addresses DQE Communications' growing bandwidth requirements with up to 60Gbps. This creates a service delivery platform that can adapt to fluctuating subscriber requirements and traffic demands.

Using the ACX Series MPLS Traffic Engineering capabilities to improve throughput and reduce delay across its distributed sites, DQE Communications created an agile infrastructure. New capabilities and services include expanded service level agreement support options, the opportunity to create new revenue generating services for customers, and the ability to immediately augment network characteristics to unique customer requirements.

Mike Marcellin, senior vice president, strategy and marketing, Platform and Systems Division, Juniper Networks said: "There are more than one billion active mobile broadband subscribers worldwide with always-on access resulting in significant data congestion from the network edge to the core. With this in mind, Juniper has prioritized investments in innovations to make massive leaps in scaling service delivery and improving operator profitability.

"The ACX Series Universal Access Router dramatically improves service reliability and enables higher revenue possibilities for the customer while minimizing operating costs."
