ERX Edge Routing (X) Switch (Unisphere) Edge Routers as part of a major core and edge network expansion. Together, the two platforms provide KT with a fully integrated solution, with leading IP routing, Quality of Service (QoS), and Multiprotocol Label Switching (networking) Multiprotocol Label Switching - (MPLS) A packet switching protocol developed by the IETF. Initially developed to improve switching speed, other benefits are now seen as being more important. (MPLS (1) (MultiProtocol Lambda Switching) The earlier name for GMPLS. See GMPLS.

With more than four million broadband subscribers, KT is the world's largest Internet Service Provider Internet service provider (ISP)
Company that provides Internet connections and services to individuals and organizations. For a monthly fee, ISPs provide computer users with a connection to their site (see data transmission), as well as a log-in name and password. (ISP (1) See in-system programmable.
(2) (Internet Service Provider) An organization that provides access to the Internet. Connection to the user is provided via dial-up, ISDN, cable, DSL and T1/T3 lines. ). With this deployment, KT's objective was to enhance performance and alleviate capacity demand throughout its nationwide network. After rigorous benchmark and network production testing, KT chose the T640 routing node for its high-port density, scale, and uncompromised dependability. The T640 routing nodes will aggregate Internet traffic through the Korea Internet Exchange (KIX) and Internet Data Center (IDC). Additionally, the T640 routing nodes offer a seamless path to multi-terabit scaling and allow for cost effective operational scale through reduced capital and operational costs.
Having already deployed the ERX routers in production networks for more than three years, KT purchased additional Juniper Networks ERX routers to help scale its growing subscriber base and to enable advanced wire-speed broadband services with subscriber-based IP QoS. The ASIC-based architecture of the ERX router combines necessary edge functionality, such as IP routing, subscriber management, and IP services. The wide range of interface options enables KT to deliver new, advanced Internet services such as Hotspots, Virtual Private Networks (VPNs), video-on-demand, video conferencing, and online gaming.
"As the leading broadband services provider in the world, we needed to expand our network with routers that will scale our growing customer base and provide us with the necessary functionality to guarantee the delivery of innovative IP services," said J.C. Lee, director, Network Planning and Coordination Group, KT Corporation. "With the combination of ERX routers and T640 routing nodes, Juniper Networks provides us with the required technology."
"KT Corporation leads the world in broadband innovation," said Adam Judd, vice president, Asia Pacific Sales, Juniper Networks, Inc. "KT's selection of both the T640 routing node and the ERX Edge Router is a resounding re·sound
