BARCELONA, Spain, February 14, 2010 — Juniper Networks (NASDAQ:JNPR, news, filings) today announced that Sprint Nextel Corp. has reached an agreement to purchase its Juniper SRX Series Services Gateways, which will enable the company to securely deliver mobile data services.
Juniper will provide a high-end, scalable security solution to accommodate potential growth in mobile data subscribers as well as handle increased data usage per subscriber.
The SRX5800 Services Gateways, equipped with multiple 1 Gigabit Ethernet and 10 Gigabit Ethernet connections, will be deployed in core and distribution data centers throughout the United States. The SRX Series will also enable Sprint to employ additional network and security capabilities.
The feature integration on the SRX Series is enabled by Juniper's Junos® software. The SRX Series is equipped with a robust list of features that include firewall, intrusion prevention system (IPS), denial of service (DoS), Network Address Translation (NAT), and quality of service (QoS). In addition to the benefit of individual features, incorporating the various features under one OS greatly optimizes the flow of traffic through the services gateway. Network traffic will no longer need to be routed across multiple paths/cards or even disparate operating systems within a single gateway.
