TIM Brasil Deploys Juniper Networks SRX Series Services Gateway to Bolster 
Fourth Generation LTE Deployment Throughout Brazil 
Brazil's Second Largest Telecom Provider Leverages SRX Series Line
Cards for Bandwidth Increase and Always-On Security 
SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/23/14 --   Juniper Networks
(NYSE: JNPR), the industry leader in network innovation, today
announced that Telecom Italia Mobile Brasil (TIM), one of the leading
telecom providers in Brazil, has deployed Juniper's market-leading
SRX5600 and 5800 Series Services Gateway for improved performance,
scalability and integrated security services across its new LTE
network. With the latest Juniper Networks(R) SRX Series platform, TIM
can provide zero downtime performance upgrades and scale to
accommodate increasing bandwidth needs while ensuring network and
customer security. 
As the second largest fixed and mobile telecommunications provider in
Brazil covering 94 percent of urban geographies with over 73 million
customers, TIM is improving network coverage and fulfilling the
ever-increasing demand for high-speed networks for its customers by
implementing a resilient and secure LTE network. TIM has deployed 4G
LTE in the 24 largest cities in Brazil in anticipation of this year's
World Cup.  
While 2G and 3G networks operate on proprietary encrypted protocols
that intrinsically provide security functions, the all-IP nature of
LTE networks can expose core elements of the network to
cybercriminals. The Juniper Networks SRX Series provides TIM
functionalities that protect their backbone LTE networks as well as
subscribers' data and privacy.  
Fortifying its network is a high priority so its infrastructure does
not become exposed to advanced threats designed to steal information
or impact service availability.  
News Highlights:
 TIM is covering 24 of the largest Brazilian cities
with 4G LTE, supporting more than 400,000 of its subscribers.
Juniper's solution enables TIM to provide superior customer
experience with:  

--  Strong Performance: TIM selected Juniper Networks SRX5600 and 5800
    Series Services Gateway because of its unparalleled performance,
    integrated security services and scalability.
    --  The SRX5600 and 5800 support 450,000 connections p
er second, up to
        an industry record-breaking 100 million concurrent user sessions
        and 300 Gbps throughput.
--  Always-on services: The SRX line cards provide TIM with high-end
    security that delivers zero downtime performance upgrades by offering
    both in-service software and hardware upgrades reducing the need for
    planned downtime, enabling service providers to deliver uninterrupted
    service. The cards are also backward compatible with TIM's current
    cards and chassis extending current investments while scaling to meet
    customer demands. Juniper's SRX Series provides TIM with simplicity
    and scalability at the speed of LTE.
--  Protecting the network and the customer data: While several vendors in
    the market provide security solutions, TIM selected Juniper because of
    Juniper's extensive experience in LTE mobile security. The SRX Series
    was developed to be natively aware of mobile-specific protocols such
    as GTP and LTE-SCTP resulting in a firewall able to block the
    proliferation of attacks leveraging or embedded in such protocols.
