From David Del Valle in Madrid
Telefonica has selected Juniper Networks’ MX Series 3D Universal Edge Routers to build a metro network across Spain to deliver fixed and mobile broadband services, including TV for residential users, as well as cloud services for businesses, from a single IP network.
Telefonica manages some 41 million accesses in Spain and runs the most extensive fibre-to-the-home network in Europe with the highest number of connected customers, reaching 12.5 million premises passed to June. The company has a significant presence in 21 countries and a customer base of over 329 million accesses around the world.
Telefonica selected the Juniper Networks MX Series 3D Universal Edge Router to consolidate its wholesale, residential and business services onto a single end-to-end IP infrastructure. The SDN-ready MX Series scales up to 80Tbps of system capacity, providing Telefonica with investment-protecting performance and the density to meet surging bandwidth and service demands.
According to the company, Juniper Networks routing will support Telefonica Spain’s new network to ensure better capacity and performance for video capabilities.
