Light Reading's editors say the Best New Product category endeavors to recognize a "potentially market-leading product that, through engineering and technical excellence, enables the deployment of profitable next-generation telecom services."
"We are at a critical inflection point when both enterprises and service providers need to build in the flexibility and scalability necessary to meet the dynamic bandwidth needs today and in the future, while also lowering the total cost of operating the network. The MX80 was purpose built with that in mind," said Stefan Dyckerhoff, executive vice president and general manager, Infrastructure Products Group, Juniper Networks.
