Juniper Networks Secures and Assures Video and Data Network for Yantai Highway Administration; Yantai Highway Administration Deploys NetScreen-204 Firewall, J- and M-series Routing Platforms.
SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Juniper Networks Juniper Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: JNPR) is an information technology company based in Sunnyvale, California and founded in 1996. The company designs and sells Internet Protocol network products and services. , Inc. (Nasdaq:JNPR JNPR Juniper Networks, Inc. (stock symbol) ) today announced that the highway administration bureau of Yantai city in Shandong Province, China, has deployed Juniper Networks routing and network security platforms to secure and assure its internal voice, video and data network. The bureau deployed Juniper Networks J- and M-series routing platforms and the NetScreen-204 integrated firewall appliances A device that provides firewall protection for a network. It includes all the necessary hardware and software in a self-contained package that plugs in between the two networks being isolated. Most firewall appliances are solid state and include a stripped down operating system. to improve reliability and security and to increase bandwidth between offices.
"The Administration Bureau's network is absolutely mission-critical," said Eric Yu, vice president of Greater China for Juniper Networks. "It transports essential data the staff requires to efficiently manage the 50,000 kilometers of Shandong highway. The Bureau chose Juniper Networks solutions for their high availability Also called "RAS" (reliability, availability, serviceability) or "fault resilient," it refers to a multiprocessing system that can quickly recover from a failure. There may be a minute or two of downtime while one system switches over to another, but processing will continue. , rich feature sets, and for the ease with which they are deployed, managed, and integrated as a unified system."
The Yantai Highway Administration Bureau deployed NetScreen-204 firewalls and M7i Multiservice Edge routing platforms at its central office. Juniper Networks J-series Services Routers provide connectivity at branch sites.
The J-series Services Router delivers the advanced JUNOS modular operating system operating system (OS)
Software that controls the operation of a computer, directs the input and output of data, keeps track of files, and controls the processing of computer programs. in a hardware platform that is ideal for smaller sites, including remote, branch, and regional offices. JUNOS software runs many functions independently to deliver high levels of security, uptime, and performance with reduced operations effort.
The M7i Multiservice Edge routing platform is an ideal enterprise routing solution for head offices, campuses and corporate backbones that need reliable, secure and high performance IP WAN connectivity, Internet access See how to access the Internet. and services. The M7i Multiservice routers use a high-performance hardware-based architecture and JUNOS, ensuring high reliability with uncompromising forwarding performance to support latency-sensitive applications such as voice, video, and mission-critical applications.
The Juniper Networks NetScreen-204 appliance is among the most versatile security appliances Security appliances protect computer networks from unwanted data traffic, intruders, email spam, enforce policies, and may also be used to create and manage VPNs. There are a number of types of security appliances. available today, easily integrating into many different environments, including medium to large enterprise networks, offices, e-business sites, data centers, and carrier infrastructures. The NetScreen-204 series performs firewall functions at 400 Mbps wire speed and even the most computationally intense applications, such as 3DES and AES encryption, are performed at speeds greater than 200 Mbps. In addition to physical interface density, the NetScreen-204 optionally supports virtualization An umbrella term for enhancing a computer's ability to do work. Following are the ways virtualization is used.
Partitioning the computer's memory into separate and isolated "virtual machines" simulates multiple machines within one physical computer. , including VLAN See virtual LAN.
VLAN - Virtual Local Area Network support and additional custom security zones and virtual routers.
"Millions of drivers depend on the Yantai Highway Administration Bureau to keep vehicle traffic flowing smoothly, and Yantai in turn relies on Juniper Networks to assure their network traffic is unimpeded unimpeded
not stopped or disrupted by anything
Adj. 1. unimpeded - not slowed or prevented; "a time of unimpeded growth"; "an unimpeded sweep of meadows and hills afforded a peaceful setting" ," said Yu. "By deploying an integrated Juniper Networks solution spanning several product classes, the Bureau benefits from a truly best-in-class solution."
