Juniper Networks announced its deal with British Airways to build a private cloud data center and IP/MPLS core backbone.

The new private cloud infrastructure will support British Airways’ operations, including ticketing, check-in and baggage tracking.

British Airways selected the Juniper Networks’ MetaFabric Architecture to accelerate deployment of new services and applications at scale. The upgraded network core will link British Airways’ data centers and other operational sites around the U.K. to help ensure fast, reliable connectivity and digital communications.

British Airways selected the MetaFabric Architecture, comprising QFabric System and EX Series Ethernet Switches, to create a data center infrastructure that can grow with the airline’s business demands.

British Airways selected Juniper Networks MX Series 3D Universal Edge Routers and EX Series Ethernet Switches to create core backbone for its nationwide network infrastructure. MX480 routers will create the core, and EX9200 switches will support service insertion.

“British Airways’ expectations of online capacity growth and dependence on critical applications to drive the business require an intelligent network that delivers automated, secure, agile networks,” said Gerard Allison, senior vice president EMEA, Juniper Networks.
