Juniper Networks has announced that it has been selected by Palestinian telco Paltel Group to upgrade and develop parts of its network and infrastructure.

This will be done through the installation of a simplified and space for power-conscious network to deliver fixed and mobile services for its business and residential subscriber bases, according to Juniper. 

Paltel uses its network to provide various offerings to its customer base including fixed and mobile broadband, value-added services, business internet connectivity, data communications and international peering services. 

Ammar Aker, chairman of Paltel Group said: “Paltel regards digital communications as a fundamental, non-negotiable element for the community that we serve. 

“Therefore, the network platform has to be so much more than ‘just’ a set of products; it is the enabler of a flawless digital experience across business, information sharing, education, entertainment, public services, family life and so much more for our customers every day.”

The company said it wanted to ensure that its investment will be protected for the future and Juniper is enabling them to build a foundational network that will grow and evolve easily. 

Paltel adds that Juniper was selected for its ability to build transformation architectures using “intelligent, open solutions which enable operational efficiencies through automation and consistently deliver superior end-user experiences”. 

Rami Rahim, CEO of Juniper Networks added: “Scale and performance have always been important attributes and supporting today’s digital requirements and expectations have led to increasingly complex demands on the network.

“This has shifted smart service providers’ focus toward operational simplicity and service assurance driven by software automation as a business transformer. 

“We think of this in terms of going beyond building better networks; it is about making the experience of networking better. I am very pleased that Juniper is working with Paltel to deliver the best possible network for its users.”

This marks another partnership for Juniper after it was revealed the company had recently signed a multi-year partnership with NEC Corporation subsidiary Netcracker to deliver services in support of streamlined 5G transport.

Through the partnership, Juniper will provide automated IP WAN transport solutions while Netcracker will take responsibility for the unified end-to-end multi-domain service orchestration and automation expertise.
