TELEHOUSE America deploys Juniper Networks QFX5100 switches

Juniper Networks QFX5100 switchesTELEHOUSE America has reduced its operational workload and simplified software configuration using SDN technology by deploying Juniper Networks QFX5100 switches.

Juniper Networks QFX5100 switches support the multi-tenant architecture that uses EVPN-VXLAN technology.

TELEHOUSE America, a KDDI group company that provides data center services in the US, realized that the QFX5100 line was the only product line capable of implementing EVPN-VXLAN technology across TELEHOUSE America’s remote data centers.

Juniper Networks’ Virtual Chassis fabric technology and Junos OS API enabled TELEHOUSE America to achieve new levels of automation, while also significantly reducing total cost of ownership and increasing long-term return on investments.

TELEHOUSE America deployed Juniper’s QFX5100 Ethernet Switch as the basis of a new multi-tenant architecture utilizing EVPN-VXLAN technology across two locations in New York City.

The company also replaced its three-layered network architecture with Juniper’s Virtual Chassis fabric technology and the open standards-based Junos OS API to automate many work streams. This has assisted TELEHOUSE America to execute software configuration in five minutes.

“There were many technologies that looked promising, but standardization takes a long time. Juniper Networks was among the first to adopt advanced open technologies and is working aggressively to achieve standardization,” said Akio Sugeno, vice president of internet engineering and operations/business development, TELEHOUSE America.

TELEHOUSE America aims to acquire new knowledge by data-basing management information, and to utilize the information dynamically across functions, such as sales and marketing.

“The Junos API enables users to create a monitoring tool to reduce operation costs. We chose it as we can flexibly configure the network in accordance with detailed technical requirements,” said Gregory Grant, senior manager of operations, TELEHOUSE America.
