Juniper Networks to support Digital Edge expansion in Asia

Digital Edge, one of Asia’s fastest-growing digital infrastructure providers, has deployed across its footprint a full stack of wired and wireless upgrades from Juniper Networks, a major name in secure, AI-driven networks.

The upgrades, says Juniper, support the rapid expansion plans of Digital Edge, meant to address the high-growth digital needs of developing and emerging markets across the region.

With the region’s swiftly accelerating digital economy and a corresponding rise in demand for localised data centre facilities, Digital Edge requires networking upgrades for its fast-growing base of enterprise and hyperscale customers.

With ongoing plans to expand its footprint and increase its capacity to 500MW over the next five years, the company has selected Juniper to provide the scalable power, volume and space efficiency required for its campus and data centre network upgrades – leveraging a full-stack suite of solutions to simplify infrastructure engineering and automate networking operations, all while improving operational efficiency as it continues to scale.

Within each data centre, the high-throughput and low-latency QFX5120 data centre switch enables cross-connects, allowing customers to connect to their choice of digital resources or business partners and support a thriving digital ecosystem. In addition, for cost-optimised interconnections, the MX204 universal router provides Digital Edge with a high-density, reliable, and operational simplified platform between the company’s data centres.

To power the campus, across several sites AP43 wireless access points alongside EX2300 and EX3400 Ethernet switches deliver hyper-reliable campus connectivity and intuitive AIOps capabilities. Capitalising on the Juniper Mist cloud with its Wi-Fi and wired assurance services as well as the Marvis virtual network assistant, they realise automation with AIOps, rich insight into experiences, AI-driven RF optimisation, and proactive fault resolutions. Powered by Mist AI, business-critical systems run with minimal intervention.

Juniper says it has enabled Digital Edge to differentiate itself by offering an expanded interconnected ecosystem of seamless high-performance services, regardless of location selected. This, in turn, has provided its customers with the ability to scale as required, at their own pace, and without limitation.

Digital Edge provides carrier-neutral colocation and connectivity services via 17 data centres across six markets in the region. It has a presence in China, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea and the Philippines.
