IT Brief Australia - Ricoh selects Juniper Networks to modernise its network infrastructure
Juniper Networks announced that Ricoh Group has successfully implemented Juniper Networks’ high-performing solutions to modernise and simplify the operations of its core networking and security infrastructure that supports approximately 500 locations and 34,000 users in Japan. Coupled with the increase in cloud deployments, this led to more operational complexities and a lack of scalability over time. As such, a high-performance network was required to support the rising demand for increased bandwidth and to alleviate Ricoh’s existing network issues. To resolve these challenges, Ricoh set out to reconfigure its entire network infrastructure based on a carefully developed framework that involved the simplicity of network configuration across multiple locations, automation capabilities to reduce operational complexities and operability that aligned with industry standards. Juniper’s MX480 5G Universal Routing Platform, SRX5800 Services Gateway, EX9214 Ethernet Switch and the data centre fabric switch QFX5100 were deployed to address the various network issues while significantly improving operability, stability and security across the Ricoh Group’s network.
