HELSINKI, FINLAND -- (Marketwire) -- 02/19/13 -- Juniper Networks (NYSE: JNPR), the industry leader in network innovation, today announced Elisa (HEL: ELI1V), the market leading mobile services provider in Finland, has deployed Juniper Networks® MobileNext™ mobile packet core solution to support the future data growth in its network.

To continue its position as a market leading innovator, Elisa implemented a fast-to-market, high-quality mobile data services from a highly cost-efficient platform.

News Highlights

  • Elisa's deployment, underpinned by the Junos® operating system, uses the Juniper Networks MobileNext solution, the world's first open mobile packet core, to focus on service-specific performance and scalability with resilient security capabilities. The solution is built on a foundation of MX Series Universal Edge Routers, the agile platform that enables programmable scaling across bandwidth, subscribers and services while reducing infrastructure and operational complexity.

  • Juniper Networks mobile core technology reduces packet core elements significantly, thus lowering CAPEX and OPEX through simplified network architecture as well as reduced power and space consumption.

  • Additional OPEX savings are realized through simplifying common tasks like software upgrades and other routine network operations. This results in an improved customer experience, providing industry leading stability and reliability.

  • MobileNext technology has the scale, performance and necessary features to support Elisa's projected data growth as the solution can support up to eight million sessions or mobile users simultaneously -- a set up rate of 48,000 sessions per second.

  • Juniper Networks Professional Services has played a key role in Elisa's new network deployment by completing the integration of Juniper Networks mobile packet core solution to both Elisa's network and billing infrastructure. The Professional Services team provides leading system testing activities and supports Elisa with learning solution operations.
