Juniper Networks announced that South Korean operator, LG U+ has successfully rolled out Korea's first-ever carrier-grade virtual routing deployment as part of a broad infrastructure solution. LG U+ has selected Juniper's virtual route reflector capability within the vMX and EX4300/EX2200 Ethernet Switches.
With the exponential rise in today's data traffic levels, increasingly high demands are placed on service providers to implement networking solutions that provide significant improvements in flexibility, adaptability and reliability, all while maximizing cost-effectiveness. This is particularly crucial for leading operators like LG U+ that are rapidly transitioning their infrastructure for next-generation 5G networking, said Juniper Networks.
With a lack of prior public NFV-based routing references in Korea, Juniper Networks said it worked closely alongside LG U+ from the initial stages of the 5G project to assess potential issues, as well as ensure integration with the existing infrastructure and third-party devices.
Through close collaboration with a partner, Juniper's virtual routing solution offers two key features that addressed major resiliency objectives for LG U+, including:Auto Recovery - the ability to automatically recognize network errors and then dynamically create a new Virtual Router immediately in order to ensure seamless service continuity.Auto Healing - the ability to prevent system overload if operator-defined maximum CPU and memory utilization values are exceededJuniper's solution also has the openness and flexibility to support third-party hosted operating systems, hypervisors and orchestration tools, while also providing modular customization.
