News Highlights

  • Elisa's deployment, underpinned by the Junos® operating system, uses the Juniper Networks MobileNext solution, the world's first open mobile packet core, to focus on service-specific performance and scalability with resilient security capabilities. The solution is built on a foundation of MX Series Universal Edge Routers, the agile platform that enables programmable scaling across bandwidth, subscribers and services while reducing infrastructure and operational complexity.

  • Juniper Networks mobile core technology reduces packet core elements significantly, thus lowering CAPEX and OPEX through simplified network architecture as well as reduced power and space consumption.
