The National Credit Union Federation of Korea Selects Juniper Networks for Major Data Center Modernization Project

Juniper Networks Technology Drives the Financial Cooperative's Upgrades for its Data Center Infrastructure, as well as for Separate IP Telephony (IPT) and Network Isolation Projects


November 01, 2016

SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA--(Marketwired - November 01, 2016) - Juniper Networks (NYSE: JNPR), an industry leader in automated, scalable and secure networks, today announced that the National Credit Union Federation of Korea (CU), a nationwide non-profit financial cooperative offering a wide range of banking services to nearly six million members across Korea, has selected Juniper Networks' switching, routing and security solutions for deployment in a major data center modernization project.

Managing almost USD 62 billion of assets through over 906 cooperatives and 1,656 branches nationwide, CU has experienced consistent growth in scope and scale across its operations. As a result, the improvement of workflow efficiency, network reliability and utilization were key priorities for the data center modernization project, which are areas where Juniper's products, including the EX line of Ethernet Switches and MX line of routers, are well placed to offer best-fit levels of performance, professional service and support.

In addition, CU has also deployed a substantial number of L2 Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) switches from Juniper, including the EX3300 Ethernet Switch and EX2200 Ethernet Switch for separate IPT and Network Isolation projects. Juniper's broad experience and expertise in automation will play a key role in the seamless operation of CU's nationwide network, and address the need to comply with the network separation policy for financial companies required by the Financial Supervisory Service (FSS).

News Highlights

  • CU has upgraded its data center networking infrastructure with Juniper Networks equipment, including the high-performance Juniper Networks® EX Series Ethernet Switches, the MX960 and MX480, and the SRX650 Services Gateway.
  • Ideal for CU's requirements, the EX Series Ethernet Switches were selected for their high-performance core network, campus aggregation and end-of-row deployment capabilities. Juniper's Virtual Chassis technology also allows multiple EX Series switches to be connected for operation as a single device, enabling centralized management and streamlined operations.
  • Offering stellar density, scale and service agility, the MX960 and MX480 3D Universal Edge Routers, which offers support for 40 MACsec-capable 10GbE ports per slot, allows CU to significantly increase networking performance.
