Juniper boosts edge routers for multimedia

Enhancements enable customers to transport analog voice, serial data and TDM-based services over an IP/MPLS network

Juniper this week announced enhancements to its service provider edge routers that are designed to improve multimedia service delivery to users.

The extensions include application and service packages for the routers that help assure performance and reduce costs by supporting legacy equipment.

One is the Integrated Multiservice Gateway, which integrates session border control signaling and media gateway functions with intrusion-prevention software, IPsec and firewall services. This is intended to help service providers avoid the cost of deploying multiple service-specific appliances such as session border controllers; reduce power consumption; and increase scalability, Juniper says.

Juniper is delivering hardware and software features for its Circuit-to-Packet (CTP) series products -- the BX series multi-access gateways, and M series multiservice edge routers. The BX series and Circuit Emulation physical interface cards for the M series provide transport of TDM and voice traffic over an IP/MPLS network.

New voice modules and software updates for the CTP series provide analog voice, voice compression and echo cancellation support, which enable customers to transport analog voice, serial data and TDM-based services over an IP/MPLS network.

Juniper is also introducing Telchemy embedded Performance Monitor (TePM), a router-integrated IP performance management application that facilitates service-level monitoring and troubleshooting for a range of IP services. It is designed to provide active network, session and application layer monitoring for a variety of IP voice and data services.

TePM was developed by Telchemy, a Juniper development partner. TePM starts at $25,000 and will be available in the second half of 2009.

The Integrated Multiservice Gateway will also be available in the second half of 2009. It starts at $5,000.

The BX series starts at $9,000 and the Circuit Emulation PICs start at $20,000. They will be available later this quarter.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
