Juniper announced Wednesday that its M Series Routers and EX Series Ethernet Switches have been deployed in the third generation of the Trans-Eurasia Information Network (TEIN3) that serves research and education communities across 11 countries throughout the Asia Pacific region.

The Juniper infrastructure will also enable TEIN3 to deliver services such as next-generation video conferencing, virtual classrooms, remote consulting and other services, the vendor said.

TEIN3 offers Asia-Pacific a gateway for global collaboration, enabling more than 30 million users in 4,000 research and educational organizations across the region to participate in joint projects such as the fight against malaria, forecasting extreme weather conditions and improving health via telemedicine, said Juniper.

The TEIN3 project is coordinated by DANTE, a not-for-profit organization that operates regional networking projects in Europe, Latin America and the southern Mediterranean rim.

"Researchers rely on TEIN3 to transfer tremendous amounts of data concerning very important projects ranging from preventing disease to astrophysics, so its absolutely critical the network delivers high levels of scale, performance and reliability," said Dai Davies, general manager of DANTE.

Besides, TEIN3 connects researchers with their peers in Europe and other parts of the world via linkage to GÉANT2, said Juniper, adding that Asian locations already connected include Australia, China, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Laos, Malaysia, Pakistan, the Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam.

There are plans to further expand the TEIN infrastructure for connectivity in the South Asian subcontinent, Juniper noted.
