    Deliveringin Value Public the New Network Our business Backbone Core Market Juniper Networks develops and sells Internet Protocol (IP) infrastructure The core of service provider networks needs to provide a unique combination of speed and systems to more than 500 service providers and carriers worldwide. intelligence to scale network offerings on demand Since 1996 our purpose-built approach to product design has helped at the edge of the network. Our product portfolio for the backbone core routing market includes a wide service providers develop and exploit intelligent IP networks. Juniper range of hardware, software, and interface card options. In 2000, Juniper Networks introduced the Networks products offer service providers and carriers a wide range of M160 Internet router, the industry’s first 160 million packet-per-second system and the first platform to concurrent IP services to accelerate the on-going carrier transition to support OC-192c connectivity. Juniper Networks IP in four specific markets: backbone core, edge, cable, and mobile continues to help service providers scale and future proof their networks. The current six M-series Internet networks. During 2001 we expanded our product offerings systems offer scalable network support of up to 32 OC-48c/STM-16 Physical Interface Cards (PICs) to cover all four of these network markets. We also grew our global and up to 8 OC-192c/STM-64 PICs per chassis. Smaller core configurations are available for customer base via national Postal Telephone and Telegraph customers interprovider peering, which offers customers highly customized selections of bandwidth and PIC (PTTs) including Chungwha Telecom, Deutsche Telekom, France Telecom, capacities. Consistent performance, ASIC-based Polska Telekom, Telefonica, and Telia. Juniper Networks continues to features, and JUNOS software running across all Juniper Networks platforms increases operational concentrate on global customers to deliver secure, scalable IP routing, efficiency while reducing complexity and costs. Edge Market intelligent edge services, cable infrastructures, and mobile cores. In early 2000, service providers began building out the intelligent IP edge portions of their networks. The Leading with innovation edge of the network is where our customers create Juniper Networks first shipped the M40 and deliver numerous IP services that represent Internet router in 1998. We have continued to increased revenue opportunities.

For the intelligent edge of 2.5G and 3G services, we jointly developed a revolutionary new product, the J20 GGSN, with Ericsson. This new platform, based on the M20 Internet router, is an order of magnitude superior to legacy offerings, supporting hundreds of thousands of concurrent 2.5G and 3G mobile users on the Internet. Wind and Rogers Cantel are two of the numerous mobile operators already leveraging the J20 GGSN. These mobile customers are also utilizing our purpose-built M-series routing systems for migrating their mobile core and edge networks to IP. Mobile networks are transitioning from legacy ATM and Frame Relay to IP, allowing mobile operators to easily add new services without prohibitive upgrade costs.
