Juniper Lands Two IPTV Customers11/28/2006 4:43 AM Eastern
Juniper Networks announced Tuesday that two service-provider customers are using its gear to roll out Internet-protocol-TV services.
Norwegian cable TV operator Get, formerly called UPC Norway, will use Juniper's M320 routers to upgrade its core network to an IP architecture. The cable operator, with more than 350,000 subscribers, will use the IP network to distribute video content from Get’s headquarters to regional cable headends in major cities throughout Norway.
Meanwhile, Zhejiang Telecom, a subsidiary of China Telecom, deployed Juniper’s E320 broadband-service routers and T-series core routers to introduce IPTV and other multiplay services. The service provider has 3 million subscribers.
