NEC Corporation and Juniper Networks have collaborated with Algeria Telecom to roll out a nationwide IP metro commercial network to support the growing demand for increased capacity and future needs driven by 5G and FTTx.
Algeria Telecom mentioned that it had formed a mid-term strategic plan to implement a transport network with homogenised topology and automation capabilities that guarantee bandwidth and future-proofing of its infrastructure in a growing market.
As a result, NEC and Juniper have successfully delivered Algeria Telecom’s next-generation IP metro network and ensured service quality, driven toward the best possible user experience at scale.
In addition, 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.
According to the telecom entities, “the 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 secure user experiences within complex 5G and multi-cloud services. In addition, the companies added that 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 made for Algeria Telecom’s requirements.
Moreover, NEC arranged the total project as a `One-Stop Network Integrator’, taking advantage of its professional services, ranging from network analysis and consulting to design, implementation, migration and operation of high-capacity networks.
According to CEO of Algeria Telecom, Adel Bentoumi, the completion of the IP metro network modernisation project by NEC Corporation and Juniper Networks will allow the company to shift to IPV6 and the initiation of digital transformation as the implement high-speed internet connection for our customers.
