JAKARTA, Indonesia--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jun. 09, 2022

Juniper Networks (NYSE: JNPR), a leader in secure, AI-driven networks, announced today that XL Axiata, one of the leading mobile telecommunications companies in Indonesia, will implement Juniper’s Segment Routing over IPv6 (SRv6) and MX Series Universal Routing Platforms to enhance its existing network infrastructure. With upgrades from Juniper, XL Axiata will have a stronger networking foundation to support the growing demand for 5G services and Indonesia’s burgeoning digital economy.

Indonesia is projected to have 233.53 million mobile internet users by 2026. This growth in internet users with access to digital services will help fuel the country’s digital economy, which is expected to contribute $150 billion to GDP by 2025. To accelerate the country’s digital transformation agenda, the government announced the Digital Indonesia Roadmap, with key priorities including completing 4G infrastructure in more than 10,000 subregions by 2022 and developing 5G-ready networks.

XL Axiata has a long history of building high-performance networks in Indonesia and previously partnered with Juniper to design its mobile backhaul infrastructure that supports its nationwide 4G LTE network. Building on this strong relationship and track record, XL Axiata selected Juniper to deploy its SRv6-based transport network that will support the rollout of 5G services across Indonesia.

The MX240, MX480, MX960 and MX2020 Series Universal Routing Platforms from Juniper's 400G portfolio will serve as the foundation of the SRv6-based transport network, providing high-performance and unprecedented scale that will enable XL Axiata to deliver unparalleled 5G experiences. Juniper Professional Services will also play an instrumental role in the design and implementation of SRv6 in the XL Axiata core network, including ensuring interoperability with the telco’s existing IP/MPLS network.

With Juniper's SRv6 implementation, XL Axiata will experience greater control, agility, application awareness and simplified traffic management of its network. As 5G remains a key pillar in Indonesia's digital economy and post-pandemic recovery plans, XL Axiata will have built a modern network that is ready for future demands for high-quality, scalable connectivity services that deliver reliable and superior experiences to consumers and businesses.
