Australian Web hosting and Cloud service provider, UberGlobal, has deployed Juniper Networks MX Series 3D Universal Edge Routers to enable it to scale the network interconnect between its Cloud datacentres in Canberra and Sydney for improved service and delivery for enterprise customers.
UberGlobal replaced its aging Internet border gateways with Juniper Networks’ products based on their scalability and the streamlined network administration enabled by the Junos operating system.
“Deployment of Juniper Network MX Series 3D Universal Edge Routers represents a significant evolution of our infrastructure, enabling continued rapid growth of customers and services whilst enhancing reliability and security,” UberGlobal chief technology officer (CTO), Dwayne Varey, said.
According to Juniper, the MX Series routers scale in three dimensions, providing UberGlobal with greater simplicity in expanding its bandwidth, subscribers, and services.
The routers also support a wide range of interfaces, from DS3 to 100 Gigabit Ethernet, giving UberGlobal flexibility to scale and match the changing requirements of its network.
In addition, the routers have native support for both IPv4 and IPv6, thus contributing to UberGlobal’s transition to IPv6.
“We’re already offering IPv6 services and with Juniper Networks’ routers in place, we have the technology to transition customers as quickly as they wish, without any impact on service quality,” Varey said.
