With a significant increase in per-link capacity, Juniper's 100 GE interface card will enable service providers and data centres to reduce the number of interfaces required in their networks.
"100 GE has always been inevitable, it has just been a question of when-now trends such as cloud computing, data centre consolidation and virtualisation are making the need for 100 GE more acute and urgent than ever before," said Opher Kahane, senior VP and general manager, High-End Systems Business Unit, Juniper Networks.
"Building on over a decade of groundbreaking achievements in the core, such as the industry's first 100 gigabit-per-slot routers, Juniper is again leading the industry with 100 GE interfaces.
"This is the type of innovation that drives customers to pick Juniper for their high-performance networks and ensures long-term investment protection."
100 GE will help wireless and wireline service providers, cloud builders and data centres realise the potential of virtualisation to consolidate resources, improve efficiency and drive down costs.
Juniper is the only company that has announced this combination of scalable, core routers, large-scale virtualisation and 100 GE interfaces.
Juniper will showcase the 100 GE interface card in its booth (5L27) at Interop Tokyo this week, and the 100 GE interface card is expected to be deployed in customer pilot networks before the end of 2009.
