Harris Stratex Networks Accelerates New Wireless Services Gateway with Juniper Networks Partner Solution Development Platform

New IP core technology provides reliable, high-speed multimedia services to mobile consumers

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., Sept. 16 / / - Harris Stratex Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ:HSTX), a leading provider of wireless solutions that enable the evolution of next-generation fixed and mobile broadband networks, today announced it has developed a wireless services gateway (WSG) platform, which extends its customers' mobile systems to 4G and beyond. The WSG was developed using the Juniper Networks' Partner Solution Development Platform (PSDP), which the company accessed by joining Juniper's Open IP Solution Development Program (OSDP).

The new WSG is capable of fully supporting 4G and WiMAX access, and connectivity service networks, and its roadmap includes support for LTE evolved packet core and fixed-mobile convergence functionality. It provides a secure connection to the core network, allowing subscribers to seamlessly roam between various 4G IP access networks. Additionally, the WSG harnesses unrivalled IP processing capabilities from Juniper, which enable a user experience not possible with other products. These key features will help reduce service costs and open up additional revenue streams for carriers, while delivering an increasingly compelling user experience to mobile broadband consumers.

Harris Stratex is using the Juniper PSDP to integrate its wireless service gateway functionality directly on top of JUNOS Software, providing a field-proven routing technology for its new IP core that seamlessly provides reliable, high-speed multimedia services to mobile consumers.

"Juniper is committed to exploring new and innovative technology ideas and partnerships that will enable network subscribers to benefit from our high-performance networking solutions," said Craig Bardenheuer, vice president of Open IP and Partnerships, Juniper Networks. "With the power of JUNOS, a single-source network operating system, and the Juniper PSDP, the joint solution will enable mobile customers to monetize their 4G networks through revenue generating services and lower transport costs."

Juniper's PSDP provides resources, including a software Development Kit (SDK) for carrier- grade routing platforms, with intelligent and secure interfaces to JUNOS routing and service functions, and technical and business support. With the PSDP, partners like Harris Stratex can develop and deploy the specific capabilities that are important to the success of their business models.

"With the explosive growth of mobile data traffic, operators are looking for cost-effective solutions to deliver enhanced broadband services, while maintaining the dependable coverage that consumers expect," said Alok Sharma, senior vice president of Corporate Development and Alliances at Harris Stratex. "With Juniper's PSDP, we can now offer operators a platform through which they can leverage the most advanced 4G infrastructure systems to deliver new, innovative services while boosting quality of service."
