Juniper MX- and T-series Routers Selected by Comcast for Commercial Services and Metro Network Architecture Applications

SUNNYVALE, Calif.--(Business Wire)--
Juniper Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ:JNPR), the leader in
high-performance networking, today announced that Comcast Corporation
(NASDAQ: CMCSA, CMCSK), the nation's leading provider of
entertainment, information and communications products and services,
has ordered additional Juniper Networks MX-series Ethernet Services
Routers and T1600 core routers.

   The Juniper Networks MX-series portfolio of Ethernet Services
Routers delivers increased network performance, scalability and
reliability in a broad range of power- and space-efficient platforms,
including the MX240, MX480 and MX960 -- the largest capacity Carrier
Ethernet platform currently available in the market. Last year,
Comcast began deploying the MX-series platforms to support business
services offerings in major metropolitan areas throughout the U.S. The
routers Comcast is now purchasing are expected to be incorporated
later this year into the Company's metro regional network
architecture, which carries traffic for all of its services.

   "We're pleased to expand our relationship with Comcast to help
support the delivery of their residential and business services," said
Kim Perdikou, executive vice president and general manager,
Infrastructure Products Group, Juniper Networks. "We believe this
expansion will strengthen the relationship and could lead to new
opportunities for Comcast to deploy Juniper's service-enabling network
infrastructure in additional parts of its network, such as its
Converged Regional Access Network."
