Juniper new product allows integration of optical transport, core IP routers
Juniper Networks has expanded its portfolio of IP and optical offerings with a new T-series physical interface card (PIC) with long reach optics and other features that enable providers to reduce the cost and complexity of next-generation core networks.
Juniper’s new 4xOC-192 PIC features standards-based 10Gb Form Factor Pluggable (XFP) optical transponders and inverse multiplexing to 40Gb/s. This flexible approach to optical integration enables service providers to improve operational efficiencies as they deploy next-generation core networks to support the increasing demand for emerging services such as IPTV and advanced multiplay offerings.
The new 4xOC-192 PIC enables providers to transport either a single OC-768 stream or four discrete OC-192 connections by using 10Gb/s optical transponders and leveraging their installed base of T-series routers.
