VicTrack, the state-owned enterprise that manages railway, tram lines and supporting infrastructure in Victoria, has appointed Juniper Network to upgrade its network infrastructure.
The enterprise provides a full range of telecommunications solutions for the Victorian Government and its transport partners in support of operational systems and business communications. It also operates and manages an extensive telecommunication network along the rail corridor that includes nearly 3000 km of fibre.
To keep pace with Victoria’s growing population and the increasing demands of its Transport and Government Secure Network (TGSN), VicTrack has strengthened its partnership with Juniper to upgrade to a modern, agile and automated network infrastructure. Legacy components will be replaced while maintaining the existing Juniper Networks MX and ACX platforms.
The network refresh, expected to be completed by the end of next year, is designed to help VicTrack provide better transport and telecommunications solutions far into the future, across both public and enterprise applications.
The ongoing upgrades will lead to improved network reliability and scalability, as well as simplified network management and operations, said Bruce Moore, Executive General Manager, VicTrack.
Juniper Networks VP&GM Bruce Bennie said that the refresh would enable VicTrack to offer a solution that is simpler, yet more flexible and powerful to its customers.
