Technology Park Malaysia Choose Juniper for State-of-the-Art Campus Network

Juniper Routers, Switches, Security and Management Create Foundation for ITIL-Standard Service Delivery
 
SUNNYVALE, California, October 1, 2010 – Juniper Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: JNPR), the leader in high-performance networking, today announced that Technology Park Malaysia Corporation Sdn. Bhd. (TPM) has deployed a basket of Juniper products and services in a total revamp of its campus network. This will help TPM attract additional tenants and enable it to generate new revenue stream by offering more application hosting, system management and network services.

TPM, Malaysia´s premier technology park offers ideal ecosystem - modern infrastructure and integrated info- structure to promote research and technology development and commercialisation for wealth creation and sustainable economic growth, Situated in Bukit Jalil, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia with a total land area of 686 acres, TPM is strategically located in between the Central Business District of Kuala Lumpur and the Federal Government administrative capital center in Putrajaya. The park is accessible to all major universities and research institutions and is currently home to over 160 technology-based companies. TPM offers approximately 2 million square feet of incubation and business commercialization R&D space and about 400 land parcels for supporting innovative technology based-companies in Engineering, ICT, and Biotechnology.

The company´s strategy is to use IT infrastructure as a competitive tool to attract and retain local and foreign entrepreneurs.

“We embarked on our latest IT Infrastructure Enhancement Project to build a world-class campus network, enabling us to provide tenants and strategic partners with a range of high-value, network-based services delivered in compliance with ITIL framework standards,” said YBhg Dato’ Hj. Mohd Azman Hj. Shahidin / President and  Chief Executive Officer of Technology Park Malaysia Corporation Sdn. Bhd.

“After careful consideration of multiple proposals we concluded to embark on Juniper´s solution, which combined best-in-class technology with easy management, reasonably pricing and strong support – was the right choice. Implementation of the Juniper solution has delivered a rapid, step-change improvement in enterprise-level performance, making IT a strategic enabler for the company.

”During the project implementation by Comintel Sdn. Bhd., a Juniper Elite Network Infrastructure partner, legacy ATM switches in TPM´s core network were replaced with Juniper MX480 3D Universal Edge Routers, which were also deployed in the distribution layer, while MX240s are now used for Internet routing. The co-location data center has been equipped with redundant Juniper EX8208 Ethernet Switches delivering the port densities, non-blocking performance, scalability and high-availability required by the most demanding hi-tech clients.


Together with the Juniper EX4200 Ethernet Switches deployed within each campus building, the MX480s, MX240s and EX8208s, which are upgradeable to 100 Gigabit Ethernet, form a high-performance, highly-resilient and highly-secure MPLS infrastructure. Juniper EX3200s, meanwhile, provide TPM´s tenants with thousands of power-over-Ethernet LAN ports within its campus buildings. Almost every network device on the campus – including the Juniper IDP8200 Intrusion Detection Appliances, SA6500 SSL VPN Appliances and a STRM 2500 Security Threat Response Manager – run JUNOS, enabling TPM to benefit from lower network operation costs and integrated network and security management, controlled through Juniper´s NSMXpress Appliance. The expandability and virtualization capabilities of the Juniper NetScreen-5400 co-location firewalls enable TPM to operate as a managed service provider (MSP) without the need for additional systems.

“Technology Park Malaysia is competing in the top tier for hi-tech tenants on a worldwide basis and that´s a real challenge for a property company because, in effect, it needs to be a network service provider to service providers,” said Wan Ahmad Kamal, Managing Director of Juniper Networks. “With the deployment of an absolutely world-class Juniper campus infrastructure, TPM is now fully equipped to operate as state-of-the-art MSP and can offer both internal and external clients a full suite of shared services.”
