Telefónica Spain has selected Juniper Networks® MX Series 3D Universal Edge Routers to build the next-generation Metro network across Spain to deliver fixed and mobile broadband services, including high-speed TV for residential users, as well as cloud services for businesses, all from a single IP network. Telefónica’s new network will enable superior capacity and performance for video capabilities, including multicast IPTV, network DVR, catch-up services, fixed and mobile broadband and voice, and Layer 2 and Layer 3 business VPN.

According to Juniper, Telefónica selected the Juniper Networks MX Series 3D Universal Edge Router portfolio to consolidate its wholesale, residential and business services onto a single end-to-end IP infrastructure. The SDN-ready MX Series router platform which is powered by the programmable Junos® Trio chipset and Junos operating system scales up to 80Tbps of system capacity, claims Juniper.

Joaquin Mata, chief technology officer, Telefónica Spain
Our new network supported by Juniper Networks will streamline connectivity with a seamless IP path from access to services and cut down the number of hops to traverse. The new network will also be quicker to provision, thereby reducing time-to-service activation and enabling simpler overall operation and maintenance. 

Gerard Allison, senior vice president, Europe, Middle East and Africa, Juniper Networks
Juniper is committed to helping Telefónica accomplish its strategic objectives through high-touch support and professional services throughout the different phases of the deployment and operation of its new network.
