After in-depth testing and analysis of 3 major vendors Node4 has selected Juniper as the preferred supplier of all its core / edge MPLS equipment.
This shows Node4 commitment to continued investment in technology, allowing us to offer advanced, scalable and resilient solutions to our customers. The new resilient self healing MPLS network will become the heart of our network allowing us to offer flexable Layer 2 and Layer 3 services to our customers from any of our Datacentre at speeds of 10Mb, 100Mb, 1GE or 10GE.
The deal includes the purchase of £370,000 worth of kit including 5x Juniper MX240 with multiple 10GE cards and 5x J-Series 4350 with 20x 1GE. These devices will be deployed across Node4′s Derby and Wakefield Datacenters, Manchester TeleCity and London Telehouse.
Implementation work will commence in November in preparation for the opening of Node4 new 27,000 SQFT Tier VI datacentre in Wakefield which is due to open Q1 2009.
The network upgrades will also coincide with the installation of a new 10GE Ring between Derby, Wakefield and Manchester.
