Telefonica Selects Juniper to Enhance Network Security

Juniper Networks SRX Series Services Gateways Selected by the Leading Telecom Provider for Improved Performance, Scalability and Software Defined Security Services

Juniper Networks has announced that Telefónica has chosen Juniper Networks® SRX Series Services Gateways as the preferred solution for delivering their global network security.

Additionally, Juniper will provide Telefónica with Professional Services to increase its overall network stability for enhanced business operations. Telefónica will also continue to benefit from Juniper’s in-depth knowledge of network operations and infrastructure, as well as Juniper’s ability to incorporate new network technologies to help innovate and evolve Telefónica’s business over the long-term to enable a security first posture in building networks.

The new cloud-based network architecture with integrated security functions will allow Telefónica to scale, automate and simplify its business operations, and improve network performance while future-proofing to enable a software defined secure network (SDSN) where security issues can be detected and where mitigating policy can be enforced anywhere in the network.

The SRX Series provides high-performance security with advanced, integrated threat intelligence, delivered on the industry’s most scalable and resilient platform. SRX Series Services Gateways set new benchmarks with 100 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) interfaces and Juniper Networks’ Express Path technology, which enables up to two terabytes per second (Tbps) performance.
Juniper’s Professional Services include design, training and onsite support, as well as legacy migration, installation and maintenance of the SRX Series Services Gateways.

“Our partnership with Juniper is yet another step forward in Telefónica’s technological transformation strategy. We are making huge advancements towards our goal to secure, simplify and modernize our network to offer differentiated services that greatly enhance the customer experience. We partnered with Juniper for its proven capability to deliver end-to-end solutions, services, innovative technologies and strong leadership, ” said, Javier Gavilan, Planning and Technology Director, Global CTO, Telefónica.

“As the security landscape continues to evolve, global organizations such as Telefónica must ensure that its networks provide fast, efficient and scalable protection. Juniper is committed to supporting Telefónica as the company expands and accomplishes its strategic business objectives, by growing its users with continuous up-time, maximum performance and comprehensive threat protection, which we believe the SRX Series consistently delivers,” informed, Gerard Allison, senior vice president, Europe, Middle East and Africa, Juniper Networks.
