Juniper Unveils WXC Appliances

SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Juniper Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: JNPR), the leader in high-performance networking, today announced the next generation of its best-in-class WXC application acceleration platformsthe WXC 1800, WXC 2600 and WXC 3400 appliances. The new WXC appliances provide distributed enterprises with a more scalable, modular and cost-effective approach to delivering fast and consistent application response across the WAN to help ensure uncompromised access to mission-critical applications and services.

High-performance businesses are required to provide their employees, partners and customers with real-time access to important applications and services to meet business objectives. They can't afford the risk of slow or unpredictable application performance across the WAN because it disrupts business.

Juniper's next-generation WXC hardware provides a highly scalable and modular platform, which delivers higher disk capacities and performance in a smaller form factor. They help businesses make the most efficient use of their existing WAN resources and improve application response times by providing a more LAN-like experience for branch office users accessing centralized applications.

"The new generation of WX series platforms marks another step toward Juniper's common hardware platform strategy, which will bring greater scalability, modularity and operational simplicity to Juniper's WAN acceleration portfolio," said analyst Jim Metzler of Ashton, Metzler & Associates. "They form the important building blocks of Juniper's next-generation WAN acceleration feature set."
