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.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
