One MX2020 has sufficient bandwidth to deliver HD video to 10 million households, company officials claimed. There are currently around nine million households in Australia according to ABS figures.
"Our vision for the new network is to provide innovations that help transform service providers into super providers," said Rami Rahim senior vice president of Juniper's edge and aggregation business unit.
"Thousands of MX customers have validated the need for massive scaling and reduced complexity driven by emerging video, applications, and cloud-based services.
"We see our new edge services engine as the first solution that truly empowers service providers to take control of their business by removing barriers currently hindering innovation and revenue expansion."
That process will be further assisted by the new JunosV app engine for Juniper routers, which allows drag-and-drop installation of applications from multiple vendors, such as load balancing, security services, online gaming and advertising.
"The Juniper Edge Services Router assists Telstra to manage content delivery, is highly scalable and integrates our networks.
"Using this equipment in our network assists us to manage the ever increasing volumes of traffic on the Telstra network."
