Orcon extends NGN with Juniper

Orcon extends NGN with Juniper

Orcon today announced the purchase of 3 M-series Juniper Routers,
increasing the size of their Juniper-powered network to make it one of
the largest in the country.

Orcon is currently the third largest wholesaler of internet services in
New Zealand. The purchase of Juniper M-series routers significantly
increases their wholesale capacity. "This purchase substantially extends
the reach and capabilities of our existing Juniper-powered IP/MPLS
network - enabling feature-rich, application-centric network services
with ability to enforce strict quality of service for future provision
of time and latency-sensitive traffic such as voice and video." said
Scott Bartlett, General Manager Operations and Regulatory Affairs.

This purchase follows Orcon's announcement in June that it intends to
make a significant investment in deploying an open access wholesale next
generation network in the new unbundled telecommunications environment.
"Juniper Network routers provide us with a robust and reliable platform
on which to build our next generation wholesale network" continued
Bartlett.

The equipment purchase is through global Juniper channel partner Siemens
Communications. Siemens Communications New Zealand will be supplying
operational support and maintenance as part of the purchase. Siemens
will also be supplying their hiD range of Gigabit Ethernet edge and
access switches as part of the network deployment.

Orcon has sustained a high level of growth over the past 3 years to become
NZ's 4th largest ISP. Previously known as a provider of wholesale internet and
business connections, Orcon has become a household name in New Zealand.
