Siemens and Juniper Networks have been selected by BT Group for a trial deployment in the carrier's 21C network project.

The 21C, or 21st century network, is BT's plan for a network offering consumer and business customers next-generation communication services.

The trials will include Siemens' SURPASS hiG 1200 Trunk Gateway. The carrier-grade Voice over IP (VoIP) trunk media gateway provides mediation between the core IP infrastructure of a next-generation network and the legacy circuit-switched network.

Juniper's IP/MPLS routing technology will also be provided to BT by Siemens. According to officials, the technology will deliver service convergence and operate at multi-Terabit speeds within the core of the network by using the T640 core router platform.
