NEC Corporation and Juniper Networks today announced they have worked with Algeria Telecom to roll out its modernized, nationwide IP metro commercial network to support current demand for increased capacity as well as future needs driven by 5G and FTTx.
NEC and Juniper have successfully delivered Algeria Telecom’s next generation IP metro network while ensuring quality of service, driving toward the best possible user experience, at scale.
As the innovative foundation of the new platform, Algeria Telecom has selected high-performing, secure solutions from the Juniper Networks portfolio for SDN-ready, cloud-grade networking and feature-rich, simple and secure connectivity at scale, deployed as access nodes to create separate pre-aggregation, aggregation and access domains for optimal reliability. Elements of the Juniper Paragon Automation cloud-native solution suite, Paragon Pathfinder and Paragon Planner have been deployed, enabling Algeria Telecom to achieve deep visibility and simplified operations of its network and services. This paves the way for assured user experiences within complex 5G and multicloud services. All of the Juniper platforms run on a single operating system, Junos OS, to create an easily-managed, simplified and open solution.
NEC leveraged its extensive transport network integration and engineering capabilities to skillfully deliver best-in-class solutions that are dynamically tailored for Algeria Telecom’s requirements. Moreover, NEC orchestrated the total project as a ‘One-Stop Network Integrator’, capitalizing on its professional services based on global and local experiences ranging from network analysis and consulting, to design, implementation, migration and operation of high-capacity networks.
In addition, NEC and Juniper’s solid partnership, built on a track record of delivering innovative networking to hundreds of customers across the globe, has enabled the tight coordination between the parties to achieve Algeria Telecom’s objective of providing a high-capacity innovative network to accommodate surging data traffic and a future of diversified 5G use cases.
“The successful completion of the IP metro network modernization project by our partners, NEC Corporation and Juniper Networks, will allow us to make the migration to IPV6 and the initiation of digital transformation, as well as the implementation of high speed internet, as we best satisfy the needs of Algeria Telecom customers,” said Mr. Adel Bentoumi, CEO of Algeria Telecom.
